Why Christian Business Women Need to Increase Referrals

I recently visited a new restaurant that had great food and exceptional
service. Before leaving I was looking for their business card so I could
start referring people to them. Getting referrals is imperative to every
self-employed business owner.

Referrals can mean the difference between not having new clients and
having a thriving business. One of the best features of a customer who
comes as a referral is that they come with a mindset to make a purchase.

Therefore, you have to do very little if any selling. So what are some
secrets to getting better, and more frequent referrals? Click HERE to read

Using LinkedIn for B2B Social Networking

There are plenty of reasons why a Christian business woman should use LinkedIn to build her business.  If you’re not using this social media platform, here’s a few reasons why you should.

This is by far the best social network for business networking. LinkedIn has a network of millions of other professionals who’re actively looking to network. The etiquette on LinkedIn is strongly skewed towards B2B networking.

So how do you maximize LinkedIn’s potential for B2B networking?

Get a Ton of Great Recommendations

Start by getting a ton of great recommendations. Ask former employers; ask clients; ask investors; ask partners. Ask everyone who’s worked with you in a professional capacity to give you a recommendation.

Ask them to get as specific as possible. Talking about real results and real ways you had an impact on them or their company will help lend weight to their recommendation.

Introduce Yourself to New Connections

Whenever someone connects with you on LinkedIn, drop them a quick note introducing yourself. This helps you stand out in their minds, because so few people take the time to introduce themselves to new connections.

Add a Profile Video

Don’t be shy about using video to start promoting yourself.  A lot of people who are competing for the same job position, the same client order or the same investment dollars could all have fantastic text profiles. But still relatively few people take the effort to add a video to their profile. Add a video to your profile to really make it stand out.

Do Favors for Other People

If someone contacts you asking to be connected to someone else, go out of your way to do so. If you know two people who would benefit from knowing one another, be the one to help them meet. Give recommendations generously. Help others in whatever way you can.

When you need their help – it could be a couple months or a couple years from today – they won’t forget that you helped them when they needed it.

Answer Questions on LinkedIn Answers

Spend any down time you have in your day answering questions on LinkedIn Answers. LinkedIn Answers is LinkedIn’s platform for people to ask business-related questions. It’s a great place for you to demonstrate your expertise, as well as for you to build your network.

Ask for Introductions

First of all, try to only do first degree and second degree introductions. Third degree introductions might work, but should only be used if you have no other alternatives. Keep in mind that you don’t need an introduction if you’re in the same group as someone else.

When you’re requesting an introduction from someone, drop them a note first telling them why you want the introduction. Don’t just send an introduction request.

In summary, start by making your profile as credible and as memorable as possible using recommendations, a great profile and a profile video. Build goodwill with others by helping them, by personalizing your connections and by answering questions. Then reach out for introductions when you need them. People will be more than happy to help.
