I need opinions on this because I am sure this could benefit alot of us.
I am co-owner of a hair salon with my wife. We are doing very well but I want to gradually expand and add more services to our business. How would I network?. My idea of networking is contacting businesses that can benefit from your services and vice versa. In my case it would be businesses in the beauty industry such as nail salon, Spa's, barbershops etc..
What would be the best way to build a network with these businesses? Lets face it, we are livining in a tough economy and I think everyone could use a helping hand. Do I visit the businesses in my area or do I send out a JOIN US mail campaign and wait for a response.
