I have attended many MLM marketing events where there were a lot of networking going on. Some people in the industry were clueless when it came to networking. It was a constant pitch about their businesses and why I should be on their team. If I looked as though I was not interested, they did not have time for me. They were not interested in connecting and maybe finding out who I was as a person and what my business was about or just to know if I had business. Who knew? Maybe I knew someone that would have been a good fit for what they were promoting.
As business entrepreneurs, whether online or offline, we need to revisit some good old fashioned "Face-to-face" type networking where it was not unusual to find people "Schmoozing" or "Rubbing elbows" with other entrepreneurs while building and establishing a rapport with one another. But, we need to be empowred with some basics on how to do this kind of networking without looking like we are faking it.
