Yes it’s that simple. There is one safe and easy way to overcome your fear of talking to potential clients, speaking in front of people and getting your message out there to the people you want to connect with!I have been working with a number of people who wanted some help in this area. I would like to share this technique with anyone who may have fears of getting out there!
The way we (including me) have worked on these fears is to network. Yes, it’s that simple… just network. Join network groups with people you know and with groups you don’t know. Meetup is one of the best networking groups around and you can bet there’s one or several, near you! Go to http://www.meetup.com and start looking for a group in your area.
The thing here is that you can attend day time meetings, evening meetings and other events through these networks. You can start by going with someone you know and start to talk with people just like you. People will ask what you do and you can start to practice your introduction or elevator speech, keep it short and simple and try different versions at different meetings.
Try to go to at least one network meeting every week. They are normally one hour, you can stay for 30 minutes if that’s works best for you. Soon you will start to build and develop friendships and relationships with other business people who will want to use/buy your products/services or can recommend you to someone they know can use your products/services.
The best thing here is you don’t have to be in a hurry, take your time but you do have to be consistent! And if you’re not sure about one group no problem.. just try another one. In fact try several and belong to more than one group. What a great way to get out there and start building your brand!
What’s your benefit? Easy… you will soon overcome any fears of taking to people you don’t know and you’ll get lots of practice telling people what it is you do!
If you would like to have a chat with me about this technique or if you have a question just contact me (Brian) at: email@example.com and I would be happy to help!
