Social Networking and Business

I played golf with a number of business owners & professionals yesterday. Afterwards the chat turned to work matters and I asked the owner of a software company where most of his new business came from. He said "Much of it comes from Golf. There are lots of golf events in our Industry. After spending an enjoyable 3 or 4 hours getting to really know someone on the golf course they often ask about business. That then leads to finding opportunities for each other".

It's the same as any successful business networking where it is important to build relationships first & the business follows later.

If you are still wondering whether Social Networks are relevant for your business then think about the amount of business generated as a result of the connections made socially.

Good Networking!
