Get Connected: The Contacts You Need To Make Business Boom


In business, it’s common knowledge that it’s not what you know, but who you know. That saying sounds like a cliche and is often overused, but it's underestimated too. Because knowing the right people can really make a difference to the way you do business. Whether you’re just trying to survive your first year, or you’re really looking to grow aggressively, you may feel as if you have to be able to do anything and everything on your own. And that hard work will prevail. Although that might be true, you really shouldn’t try to do everything alone. Because having great contacts can often be the key to getting things done in the most effective and ambitious ways possible. 

Clients 

Of course, the very first kind of contact you need to make is the one that’s going to turn itself into a customer. Regardless as to whether you provide a consulting service or you’ve manufactured a B2B product, you need customers. And when you need a certain kind of customer, not the mass-market kind, you have to have contacts. Sometimes, this means that you’re going to have to go out there are network to find them, or even get introduced to them by other contacts that you have. Either way, they’re an essential kind of contact to have. 

PR 

Next up, there’s PR (public relations) too. Because when you really want your business to do well, you’re going to need some incredible marketing tactics. And if that’s not your strong point, you need to pull in the people that specialize in it. When it comes to working with the best, you may find it hard to get in with the right agency that gets the best results. So, you need to get good PR contacts, and fast. 

Suppliers 

And then there’s always suppliers to think about too. Because when you do work in a particular industry, and need specialist suppliers such as an efficient mining power supply, you need the right connections to find them. Contacts really can be the key to unlocking the very best for your particular business, and you need to be able to start building up your base to make that happen. 

Financial 

You’ll always need good financial contacts when you’re in business. Because not only do you need a killer accountant that’s going to keep your business on track financially, you may find that you need investors too. And to find investors that are not only going to be willing to give you money, but become good business partners too, you need the right contacts. 

Superstars 

And of course, then there are the kind of anomaly contacts that are always the superstars of your little business book. They’re the kind of well-connected people that could open up a range of beneficial doors for your business. They’re the movers and shakers in the business world, the person that knows everyone, and the kind of contact that you need to have on your side for when you need just about anything at all.
