Where do you find new clients? Where do you meet new contacts? How do you stand out and be remembered, considered, and admired? Here’s a tip: It’s not being at home in monologue with yourself. It’s out in the world where people are!
According to Nielsen’s most recent report, we spend nearly 11 hours each day using electronics and participating in electronic media platforms phone, tv, computers, tablets, etc. They even mention that some of our use happens simultaneously! Imagine that! Although technology has made some tasks in life simpler, it can occur as addictive, and as we surf, we seemingly connect with others. But, do we really?
When we were kids, the grownups would always say, “Go out and play!” And, now I invite you to do the same! Unplug. Get dressed for business and go someplace where you will find your target market and make some sales!
You can meet people at the darndest places: professional associations, seminars, sporting events, retreats, volunteering, church, airports, Chambers, networking events, doctor’s offices, shopping, parties, the gym, and practically anywhere you wait in line. And there’s always a Starbucks in every neighborhood! One never knows when the urge for a Venti Cappuccino will strike!
