5 Ways to Build Your Business Relationships

category: Professional Networking, time management, business growth


Most every business professional is keenly aware of the importance of growing and maintaining their professional network. Your network is the critical cadre of people who can attest to your integrity, and to the quality of your work. Without them, others have little reason to pay attention to you. But with them, you have a bullhorn to spread the word about you and your service.

Yet we're all crazy busy keeping up with our day-to-day business operations as it is. Who has the time to build, nurture, and maintain their business network with everything else on their plate? 

Think of it like this: you have a full plate...but without active participation in business network building, you are leaving money on the table every single day.

Because your network is responsible for referrals that give you the new revenue you need to stay in business. 

Below, you'll find several techniques to enhance the efficiency of your networking activities so that you can do more with less.

Top 5 Free Video Conferencing Tools for 2017: Pros and Cons

In a recent Frost & Sullivan survey of C-level executives, respondents were asked about their use of video conferencing during business meetings. The C-level executives cited “improved customer service, faster decision-making, and lowered costs” as prime drivers for their use of video conferencing.

Another recent global survey of 4,737 enterprise video conferencing end-users by Wainhouse Research and Polycom revealed the top benefits of videoconferencing:

  • Increased efficiency/productivity (94%). Meetings can be scheduled in minutes, and collaboration can begin with a mouse click whether participants are in the office, working from home, waiting for a flight, or sitting in a hotel room. Meetings via video tend to accomplish more in a shorter amount of time.
  • Increased impact of discussions (88%). Unlike conference calls and email, face-to-face discussions enable people to read facial expressions, reactions, gestures and other forms of non-verbal communication in order to develop a real sense of trust. Instead of simply watching, users are more actively involved.
  • Expedited decision-making (87%). There’s no need to fly back to the corporate office to regroup and formulate a response. Video conferencing makes it easier for all stakeholders to attend a meeting (instead of waiting days or even weeks to gather in person), which accelerates business processes as a result.
  • Reduced travel costs (87%). Previously, this had consistently topped the list of reasons why videoconferencing was being used, showing that users are looking beyond hard cost savings and recognizing how video conferencing can improve how they do business.

The study also showed that the most common use case of videoconferencing is to meet with customers and partners (71%).
