Why Networking Outside of Your Market is Important

You’ve likely attended a local networking event. These events allow you to connect with other professionals, meet on a more personal level, and have a hub of people that you like to refer to your clients.

But have you considered that networking with vendors outside of your market can also be incredibly important?

Here’s 3 Reasons Why:

Markets Are Different:

What you might be struggling with in New York may have already been solved in California. Meeting and networking with professionals in different markets allows you to greater understand how clients and businesses operate in different areas.

By creating this relationship, you’ll always have someone in a different market that you can reach out to when you’d like to solve a problem, get some feedback, or trend watch.

You’ll Be One Step Ahead:

By having connection in all areas, and tapping into their knowledge, you’ll be able to bring ideas and innovation to your market that will set you one step ahead of your competitors. You’ll have solutions and systems many of your local businesses will not. This allows you to position yourself and your business as an expert in the area.

Brand Exposure:

In the wedding industry, you are your brand. So networking with others increases your brand exposure in a huge way. This means that the florist from California you met at the A.C.E. conference might refer you to a friend who’s getting married in your town. Which each new connection you make, you add validity and legitimacy to your brand and business.
