About the Importance of Business Networking

There is an artificial divide in business between B2C, businesses that sell products or services to the consumers, and B2B, businesses that sell the business. This divide is artificial because there is no such thing as selling to businesses.

Whatever you are selling and whoever you are selling it to, you are selling it to people. The person may be the chief executive officer of a Fortune 1000 corporation, but he is still a person. Whatever you are selling may need an approval by a board of an organisation, but that board also consists of people.

When dealing with people who are performing business functions, you may need to overcome more obstacles than when dealing with consumers. With consumers, the most important question is whether the product or service works for a person. With businesses, it gets more complicated.

Your product or service may work, but then the organisation may not be ready to implement it. It may also need to train its employees to work with your product or service or it may not have employees for it at the moment at all, which means that it would need to hire more people. However, even in business everything is about people and dealing with people, which is why it is so important for everyone in business to be able to build relationships, friendships and a powerful business network that can be one of the biggest cornerstones of both your business and personal success.

A business network has a profound impact on personal success because no matter what business you are in, if you know a lot of people and have relationships with them you can enter a new business field. You can try yourself in a different capacity and more. It can truly be a source of a number of assets, both professionally and personally.
