Takeaways + Tactics

You might not be able to link a specific deal to your podcast, but consistent podcasting does replaces credibility issues with social proof.

Client events are a chance for you to touch base with people at multiple stages of the process.

Networking isn’t just about handing out business cards, it’s about building relationships. You can do so by being on industry boards and giving your time back to the community.

Networking and giving back your time

Networking, events and podcasts are like any other piece of media, they destroy credibility issues. Frequency, volume and consistently being out there attracts people to the brand and that draws them into your world. This gives you a chance to provide value at different stages of the relationship by giving a sample of what you do, and proving why you are different and better.
