Brews & Business: Speed Networking in the Post-covid World
We’ll explain four network categories that could work for you, as well as how you can improve your networking – online and in person.
At this month’s Brews we’ll chat about Speed Networking in the Post-covid World.
Covid has changed us and we’re not going back to the way business was done.
We’ll start with a rundown of four network types that could work for you and how they can help your business.
Next, we’ll break into four groups to discuss each network and come up with examples for each category.
We will focus on these four categories:
Photographer Networks – Protective
Such a network is a group of people, places and other businesses that can help protect the livelihood of your business. This is the most important network. You will want to establish such connections first to secure your business’ future.
Photographer Networks – Social
In this type of network group, you make photo friends. Such folks can be your cheerleaders and your worst critics. They can help you work out problems and create solutions, even when you want to cry. This type of network will be your emotional support system in photography. And you will need it.
Photographer Networks – Professional
This type of network is most important for any photographer — and everyone in any business. Your network can include folks from industries other than photography to support or surround you. These are the people who give you referrals. For a wedding photographer this might include wedding planners, florists, caterers, DJs and more. You will want to connect particularly with businesses who can connect you to your future clients
Photographer Networks – Creative
Last but not least, this type of network will help you build and evolve your business. This might overlap with your social network, and that could make it even better.
After we return from breakout rooms, we will open the floor to discuss networks we think fit these categories and how we can improve them.
