Free articles and videos with advice about business networking

I do speak to a lot of people who tell me they need to make more sales from their networking. I think at pretty much every networking event I go to I bump into someone for whom it isn’t working out as well as they wanted it to. And that’s cool. Networking events and organisations are a set of tools which need to be used correctly, not an automatic business delivery system.
Of course, I offer everyone my paid services, because this stuff can be taught, just like other skills. Being “good” at networking isn’t something you’ve either got or not got, it is something you can learn to be better at.
Even for those people who choose not to work with me, there is a ton of free advice and information out there to be taken advantage of, and I guess it still surprises me that people don’t.
If you’re struggling with your networking, here’s some completely free resources you can take advantage of.
