A Networking Guide for Your Coin Laundry Business

Networking is the art of making meaningful connections with people sharing the same interests in a social setting. As a coin laundry entrepreneur, it is important to network to create opportunities that could bring your business to the next level. Not sure where to start? Here is a simple guide:

  1. Where to network

In addition to the online platforms such as LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter, you can also broaden your network through seminars, conferences and trade shows. These are the venues where you can connect with other entrepreneurs and industry experts in the laundry business to build a strong network for possible future collaborations.

  1. Always be networking

Whether it is a casual meeting, formal training session or a business luncheon, never stop networking. Mingle and meet with as many people as you can. Alternatively, you could find out more about the guests and asked to be introduced to selected high value contacts.

  1. Take the subtle approach

Nobody likes being harassed for information or ideas. Hence, it would be a big mistake to use the ‘hard sell’ approach when meeting someone you wish to connect with. Networking is about building a rapport through common interests such as sharing the same hobbies or being fans of the same sports team. Remember, you are building a relationship not trying to make a sale.

  1. Always follow up

Establishing quality relationships takes time and effort. Reply to emails and return phone calls from the person you wish to connect with. Share interesting articles, respond with useful comments on their Facebook posts or Tweets. Find ways to constantly add value to the other person and pay it forward. That way, the other person is more likely to work with you in future.
