How do spheres of influence impact your branding or affect marketing and selling your services and products?
What constitutes one’s “sphere of influence” (SOI)? For example, as mutually beneficial business and social networking relationships, see how “Networking Ahead” construes SOI (networkingahead.com). Another interesting SOI discussion: strategypeak.com.
What is a “sphere of influence business model”? RISMedia (rismedia.com) identifies 3 primary activities in effective SOI in business: 1) nurturing existing relationships; 2) staying in touch with other non-primary contacts; 3) meeting new people.
We will discuss various levels of influence. 1) core areas; 2) inner circle; 3) outer circle.
Bring examples or stories. Where have you seen SOI at play in your own business or larger network community?
So, so, so, invite your friends and associates to join us for this exciting non-virtual non-cloud event in real time and real space … and another delicious cup of BBC!
