What to look for in business networking groups. Profitable business networking is determined by your ability to build mutually beneficial relationships with other professionals. This kind of relationship cannot be achieved at just any standard shake-hands-and-exchange-your-business-card event that touts itself as a business networking “opportunity.”

What you really need is to become involved with professionals who think about you on a regular basis. For this to happen, you need to take the time to develop a core group of “rainmakers” with whom you comfortable. This takes time and patience. 

As you are searching for business networking groups, consider the following:

> Look for a networking group with individuals you like, trust, and are willing to go out of your way to help.

> Find a networking group that teaches you something about general business principals, not one that just exchanges leads.

> Build your own group if you cannot find an existing group that meets your needs.

A network of benefits.  Increased business revenue is not the only benefit you receive from participating in a networking group. Joining or building a network goes a long way towards reducing the sense of isolation that many small business owners feel. You become part of a business community. In addition to exchanging clients and referral sources, you can also benefit from the business experiences of other group members. Learning what has worked and not worked for other business owners is a great advantage to your own business.

You must put in the effort to see the results.  Some people fail to make time for networking events, believing themselves too busy with more important tasks.  However, you must put in the effort to get the rewards. If you are part of a group, then you need to treat group meetings just like you would treat a client meeting.

Networking does not have to be a tedious process that takes up lots of time.  However, it must be part of your regular routine. Networking is a state of mind. It means you are taking the growth of your business seriously and understanding the value that connections can add. Business is based on relationships with customers and suppliers, networking is the glue that binds them together. If you give it as much attention as you give to all those other vital daily tasks, you will see tangible benefits.

Once you start thinking seriously about expanding your network, you'll be amazed at the number of opportunities that arise.

Now...get out there and get connected.
