At Urban Giants Design we have a clear view on business and networking. People have always voiced the phrase “it’s not what you know, it’s who you know”, but we like to think it’s both. Therefore we make sure that we are good at what we do, we know what we’re talking about, and then we try our hardest to get to know everyone. It seems like an obvious thing to say, but it’s frightening how many businesses are just sat waiting for the phone to magically ring, or are too shy to network. To coin another phrase “Shay bairns get nowt”, so get out there and make it happen.
One of the key ways we do business is to constantly connect everyone we know whenever we can. If we meet a new client or business, the first thoughts we have are how can we help you, how can you help us, who do we know who would benefit from meeting you, and who would you benefit from knowing. That mentality is second nature to us, and it’s vital to how we do business, and a value our clients appreciate.
We feel it’s key to survival of your business and the economy for all businesses to work together, share resources, share contacts and share knowledge. One great way of doing this is through social media networks such as Linkedin and Twitter, and we’d like to see more people doing it too.
For example, if we know two businesses on Twitter who would benefit from talking to each other, either through direct business or indirectly through knowledge exchange, then we will do a social introduction…
If we introduce them both using their @usernames with the addition of the hashtag #Socialintro it can only prove to benefit business.
It’s a simple thing to do, but it is something which would make a giant impact if we all did it.
