We have been online now with family and colleagues more than ever through various online portals. Virtual networking is here to stay as research has shown that it has brought multiple benefits to the society.
The ease of attending virtual meetings with no limits to locations and the money saved from travelling for business meetings has brought huge savings on finance. The big organizational conferences for which we had to purchase costly tickets earlier are now available at minimum cost or are free too!
There is a greater reach due to virtual meetings as we were able to attend those meetings at home as per our convenience. There are scientific researches which shows that virtual meetings should stay after the COVID pandemic. Read more about it on nature.com.
Virtual networking is the new trending way of meeting people and expanding business along with other benefits.
- Acquire and share skills and expertise.
It is through networking that we meet people involved in other businesses with more exposure to knowledge and advice. The more people we meet on these meetings, will help share the skills and expertise we have with each other to better expand our business.
- Build your network.
Virtual meetings do not only imply two people talking and each trying to sell their products to each other. It is an opportunity to build business relationships which should be thought of as a long-term investment.
Sometimes understanding what goes around in other parts of the business, helps us explore and gives us a chance to increase our market capture in those areas. For example, it would be wonderful if we could know about any new restaurant openings in our location if we are into furniture business.
- Cost Savings
All we need to expand our networking through virtual meetings are a device and network connection. We can meet people from other locations just sitting at home and thus saving the cost of travel, hotel bookings etc. These savings eventually adds up to the revenue.
- Invaluable Marketing
Attending business virtual meetings and just talking about our business and what we do and how we do it is a great marketing opportunity to increase brand awareness and making a good impression. Sharing knowledge and providing guidance to others shows brand positivity making other businesses also interested in you through word of mouth.
