    How To Pivot Your In-Person Networking Strategy To An Online Strategy In 5 Easy Steps

    How To Pivot Your In-Person Networking Strategy To An Online Strategy In 5 Easy Steps

    When you think of networking, what do you picture in your mind?
    For a lot of people, it means going to networking events or meeting people for coffee. When I had my first company in 2011 it did to me too. But then time got short, seeing the same people over and over got frustrating and eventually, I got burnt out. This time around, I am doing things a lot differently in my business. I am networking online. Exclusively online and my results have been fantastic.
    Welcome to episode 046 of Business Networking By Design where today I will be talking about how you can pivot your in-person networking strategy so that you can still network effectively online while you are in lockdown.

    How To Get Back On Track Networking When People Are Distracted And Afraid

    The world is going through some extraordinary times at the moment and this episode is a rollercoaster of emotion for me. 
    Like me, you probably check the news every day, you have had to turn your routine completely upside down and what’s more, we are all being told to practice social distancing if we are not on lockdown already. So how can you possibly network and grow your business in a time of such turmoil?
    Well, if you don’t then in a few months' time you may not have a business to come back to. Welcome to episode 043 of Business Networking By Design where today I will be talking about 5 steps to getting back on track with building your business network whilst everyone else is distracted and afraid.

    What does it take to build a 200,000 member Facebook Community in just 4 Months? 
    Today I am talking to a very special guest who has done just that, grown a Facebook community from 0 to 200,000 people in just 4 months!
    Not only that, the community she has created has helped hundreds of business owners around Australia generate thousands of dollars for their families and brought income into her own business.
    Today I am speaking to business owner and movement creator Jenn Donovan of the Small Business Made Simple podcast and the hugely viral Facebook group #buyfromabushbusiness which was created as apart of the buy from the bush campaign here in Australia.
    In this episode, we look at all the ways Jenn has stepped out of her comfort zone and as a result, created incredible opportunities not only for herself but for those in her network as well.
    Welcome to episode 42 of Business Networking By Design where today we see first-hand what can happen when you have an amazing idea, you step out of your comfort zone and you just take action.
    I have known Jenn for a whole 6 months but we clicked straight away so this interview was just like chatting with an old friend. Grab a cup of tea, press play, learn a lot and laugh a lot with us today. 
    Topics Covered Today:
    - Jenn's Background and business superpower
    - The struggles of small and micro businesses
    - Innovations that have helped stimulate small businesses
    - How and why Jenn created the Facebook Community Buy From A Bush Business and it grew to over 200,000 people in just 4 months
    - How to create a movement behind a Facebook Community
    - How Jenn converted that free group into one that earns her money for the time she spends moderating it.
    - The motivation behind Jenn creating her own sold-out networking events even though the thought of networking makes her feel very nervous. 
    - How the networking event had a flow-on effect in her business
    - Social media versus Networking
    - Human to human marketing and what it means for business
    And much more....I know right? We covered a lot!

Smart, Actionable Netwoking Tips

Kelly's tips and ideas for business networking are so sensible and practical, you'll be able to implement them whether your business is your full time gig or side hustle (in fact, she even has a dedicated episode for the side hustlers.)

I loved listening to Jenn Donovan's #buyfromthebush journey in episode 42 and Kellie's best friend analogy in episode 41. As a business coach myself, I say - do yourself a favour and binge listen to this podcast.

Amazing 👏🏻 Podcast About Networking!

Omgoodness - I loved the explanation of our Networking Personalities! I’m definitely a mixture of an anti-social butterfly & a connector (who forgets to connect herself!)
Thank you for such an insightful podcast. Can’t wait to hear more & improve my networking skills! X
