While on this topic, I will try to make it concise and as clear as possible. First, you need to understand what networking is all about, the types and how to build contacts and eventual financial empire by being your own boss. So, let's get started!

Networking simply means growing and keeping contacts and relationships with people. As these contacts keep accumulating, they become an invaluable tool for your financial growth and in creating not just contacts but in building "business- partners- turned friends" for life!!! Don't forget building relationships is key to success. Although, you must note that the intention of networking is to mutually benefit all (team benefits).

 How to Build Contacts:

Networking opens up more opportunities for your business. You can actually meet amazing people and build some great connections. For the purpose of this write-up, find below some of the types of Networks/contacts:

1). The Social Network:

These are the informal contacts you made from social activities, for example, family, friends, coursemates from the University, former work colleagues, and present colleagues etc.

2). The Professional Network:

 These are contacts built through formal or informal business activities from different professional callings; Accountants, Lawyers, Doctors, Clients, etc

3). Social Media Network:

 These are the Internet-based network. They are sometimes from the business communities which are equally open to new members, trade associations, professional institutions, etc. These Communities and or groups allow like-minded entrepreneurs to connect, share experiences, advice and sometimes, provide tools to succeed in business. For example, the NairaLand Forum.

 Also, here are some examples of general sites where you can network with other people:

 Others are Facebook pages, Messenger, Snapchat, Telegram, WhatsApp, Periscope, to mention but a few.

After reading the above, you may now be wondering how then do I grow my business empire through network marketing as I earlier stated. So building this financial Empire can be achieved through becoming an affiliate marketer with Amazon and other online stores or a participant of well known and trusted Multi-Level Marketing companies such as Swissgolden by referring your contacts/Network to the business circle.

Lest I forget, you could try Eric Worre's Go Pro.

I find it not just interesting but enlightening. Make sure, when recruiting, recruit people with like minds; and see your team becoming very successful with time.

Hope this is helpful?
