The PowerMatch Philosophy
The most misunderstood thing about networking is that lots of people think that it's a sales activity. It's not. It's a marketing activity. And the function os marketing is to create awareness of your product/service and to build up your Know/Like/Trust Factor.
When you're trying to shove your business card at someone at a business mixer, you aren't building much Know, Like, or Trust. You're just being annoying.
At PowerMatch, we expect our members to focus on building relationships - working together, collaborating, and figuring out how to help each other. That's what we think networking is all about!
If this is your networking philosophy, too, well, then you're in the right spot!
"If you believe business is built on relationships, make building the your business" - Scott Stratten, UnMarketing
