Meet Rich Claypool, an independent financial advisor with Infinity Credit and Financial Services, and founder of the weekly networking group, Around North Dallas Networking Group (ANDang).
People do business with people they first know, then like, and finally - trust. It takes time, it takes repetition, and familiarity and relationship. The value is in the relationship, not the cost of the product. Host of Power Group Networking Rick Rawson and his long time friend discuss how those relationships both grow and retain business.
Rick and Rich talk through the dynamics of great networking groups and what they've learned over the years that make for long term success.
Consistency is the key - even between Packers and Cowboys fans! Consistency is important for digital and real life relationships.
Engagement is the next important thing. A lot of people think the business should come to them when they attend groups, but the truth is, it's each person's responsibility to be assertive and meet others. Take advantage of opportunities to meet the people you are in the room with.
Find a group that has a personality, and then put in the time and effort it takes to make it flourish. To clap after a 30-second commercial, or not? Listen in to find out!
