How Networking Helped This Entrepreneur Grow $6M In Sales

Networking is a crucial element of being an entrepreneur. Whether you just entered the space or you’ve already established a name in the industry, you need to know how to network.


Alexander Gonzalez is no stranger to networking. With a master of Science in Psychology, he began dedicating his life to helping others through life-changing transformations.  Alexander is also a husband and father of two, a social media influencer, paid public speaker, and Ketopreneur.


Currently, as a Ketopreneur, Alexander is leading a team and has helped build a $6M+ business by helping others step into their greatness.


As an entrepreneur, you can’t exist on your own alone. Building a successful business requires working with different people and businesses. Networking can help you with personal and business growth.


What are some of the benefits of networking?  Here are a few of them that Alexander believes are important:


Networking opens up new opportunities


Building connections is one of the key benefits of networking. First, you connect with people in the same room, and then you also gain connections with their networks. So, when your business needs something that their contacts can provide, they can give you a referral.


Networking also helps increase your brand awareness. While the people you meet today don’t need your products or services at the moment, one day, they might need them and remember you if you connect with them regularly.


So, building your professional network can open up new opportunities for you. In the entrepreneurial world, it matters whom you know. They can help you find the right people to build your team, new partners, and more customers.


Networking expands your perspective and knowledge


Networking allows for collective knowledge. It’s about sharing knowledge and exchanging ideas. You get access to a different perspective than yours or learn something new from more seasoned entrepreneurs in your niche.


If you need advice, your network is more than willing to share their experience, so you can avoid the mistakes or pitfalls they’ve been through. Networking provides you with valuable information you can’t simply gain if you work alone.


Networking helps you spread your mission


Every entrepreneur embarks on a mission—the why of their business. If your business is inspired by a greater purpose you want to serve, networking can help you spread your mission.


You can connect with people who share a similar vision and get exposure to their connections. Especially when you’re starting, you need to build up your brand recognition. Networking makes you more visible and helps you establish your reputation through positive word of mouth.


The bottom line


If you want to build your business and grow professionally, you must network regularly. Connecting with various professionals and entrepreneurs can open up gates of opportunities you might not know to exist or won’t have access to if you don’t network. So, invest some time and effort to build genuine connections and maintain relationships with your network.
