Networking is an inexpensive and quite profitable way to grow your business. Unlike marketing and advertising, you do not have to pay to network. You are simply meeting and getting to know people. It is about giving and receiving favors, but has more to do with connecting with people than selling your services. The beauty of networking is that it can be done anytime, anywhere. You can network with every person you come in contact with during the course of your day. The more people you interact with, the better your results.
