1. One of the biggest assets you will find when you are in a home based business is networking people with other business owners. Not only are they a great source of encouragement, but they can also lead to more business.

Networking is Important

When people are selling products, such as jewelry or candles, a lot of times what they will do is to have an online party. Everyone goes into a chat room, and
it’s just like a regular party, except it’s online.

Something that people will do is that they will trade parties in the network. Let’s say that you sell jewelry, and someone else in the network sells candles. The two of you talk, and you agree to do a candle party for her if she does a jewelry party for you. This way the both of you benefit from the experience, and hopefully the two of you make some sales.

Just like with a regular party that is held in someone’s house, it’s important to give your hostess a thank you gift for holding the party for you This way, even if she doesn’t buy anything, she still gets to
see what it is that you have to offer and will keep you in mind for the next time that she wants to buy a product like the one that you are selling.

Networking is an essential part of having a home business, and can be very profitable if you take time to get to know those in your network.
