Thank You, Hazel!

Posted on January 17, 2009. Filed under: networking, referrals |

I was sitting here trying to decide what to write about when it occurred to me that the best way to kick this off (in the spirit of referral/word of mouth marketing) was to write a public tribute to one of my mentors (and the one who gave that final push into blogging and online networking!)  Therefore, I want to publicly thank Hazel M. Walker (http://thenetworkingstrategist.wordpress.com OR http://www.bni-indiana.com) for “flicking the switch” on how valuable (and downright simple) blogging and online networking can be. 

When it comes to referrals and networking, doing these things successfully requires building relationships which typically involves personal interaction.  However, the web is a fantastic TOOL to augment and enhance this personal interaction.  It can also leverage what you already have.  Using a forum such as this allows someone the opportunity to reach out to more people which, when coupled with either third party testimonials (in the form of replies OR sending people to the site) or actual personal interaction, helps strengthen  someones credibility and increases opportunities for success.

I look forward to using this forum as a means to not only reach out to others but as a bridge in my knowledge of offline networking to online networking.  Thank you again, Hazel!
