Larissa Choma showing the way to consulting Hi, my name is Larissa Choma and I have been working as a business consultant for many years. As I work with customers, I realize the importance of having access to the knowledge of other professionals. Early on, I thought I could provide any service a customer requested. I learned that the customer gains more benefit from experts in each major business discipline. Networking became essential because clients needed services in various fields, including marketing, graphic design, website development and other specialties. Each expert provided connections to new clients for my consulting practice in return. Building a business is similar to raising a child since every action taken has direct effects on the health of the fledgling operation. Consultants are particular about the business associates who interact with clients. Helpful steps must be taken in the right sequence to find potential network members. • Build relationships – Similar business values and priorities are important when two businesses are offering services to the same client. Partners who are mismatched will become frustrated, and the service levels will deteriorate. Every network partner will reflect on the referring partner

PowerPoint Presentation:

• • Create a service list – All products and services offered should be compiled on a list that can be offered to potential network partners. This ensures that referrals are reciprocated. Obscure skills should be listed and described. Unique skills will draw business from network partners. Use familiar terms on the list to prevent misunderstandings. • Return to the core – Extraneous services take more time to complete. Tasks that are not creating significant portions of the monthly revenue should be eliminated and outsourced to a network partner. Customers will be happier with the end result. • Determine the type of partnership – Referrals are the highest possible compliment that can be paid to a network partner. Additional sales grow both businesses while the client is transferred to the business performing the work. Other partnerships will include a subcontracting relationship where the primary partner retains ownership of the client. Clients will have unanticipated requests that require significant research to fulfill the need. An existing network partner can be asked for a secondary referral for the product or service. Utilizing existing professional connections to find new network partners will ensure that product and service quality is maintained.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Questions about referred network partners are important because everyone who works for a client will affect the reputation of other partners. Negative references must be avoided because of the perception given to a client. Not using a partner will communicate the concerns without verbalizing previous experiences. Issues with a network partner should be addressed directly to resolve the problem and retain the professional relationship. As the network grows, favorite associations will develop within the network. Some firms refuse to embrace duplicate types of companies in the network to avoid competing interests and loss of business for the existing members. Multiple graphic designers should not be in one network to avoid loss of work for the first graphic designer in the network. Encourage those with similar businesses to begin new networks that can refer work to each other.
