1.0 INTRODUCTION

Business networking is the process of establishing a mutually beneficial relationship with


other business people and potential clients and/or customers. The primary purpose of
business networking is to tell others about your business and hopefully turn them into
customers. Marketing is one of the biggest advantages of social networking for a business.
There are lots of ways to use social media to market your business. For example, develop a
Facebook fan page to keep customers in the loop about important brand updates. Create a
YouTube channel to showcase your product features and benefits. Blendtec, a company that
develops high-powered blenders, created a series of videos showing people grinding up golf
balls, cell phones and iPads in their blenders. The videos became a hit and spread virally,
with over 156 million views as of March 2011.The purpose of business networking is to
increase business revenue - one way or another. The thickening of the bottom line can be
immediately apparent, as in developing a relationship with a new client, or develop over time,
as in learning a new business skill. There are so many benefits that can be gain from business
networking.

New contacts and referrals, this is the most obvious benefit of networking is to meet potential
clients and/or generate referrals which you can then follow up on to hopefully add to your
client base. Networking can also help you identify opportunities for partnerships, joint
ventures, or new areas of expansion for your business. Another advantage of using social
networking sites in business is the level of acceptability and relationship-building they can
bring to your business. If you have an existing customer you engaged on a social networking
site, you increase your chances of having that customer become a "fan" of your page or add
you to their friends list. Build relationships with customers on LinkedIn by adding them to
your network and engaging in conversations about your brand online.Other than that, it also
help us staying current - In an ever-changing business climate it is important to keep up with
the target market conditions as well as overall trends in your industry. Knowing the market is
the key to developing a successful marketing plan. Attending seminars and networking with
your peers and business associates on a regular basis will help you stay current.

Using social networking websites to increase your customer service and gather feedback from
customers is another advantage. Create a form on your Facebook or link to a form on your
website that allows customers to voice their concerns and complaints. Post a survey on your
Facebook page or a link to a survey on your Twitter account to gather customer feedback

about a new product or service idea. In create business network it help to build our
Confidence and morale - Most business people are optimistic and positive. Regularly
associating with such people can be a great morale boost, particularly in the difficult early
phases of a new business. If you are not naturally outgoing, regularly meeting new people can
also boost your confidence and on a personal basis you may form new friendships with like-
minded people.

When we talk about business network, we cannot forget the tools used in networking. Social
networking tools provide network analysis and connection facilities to allow people to
understand the community structure and influence it over time. These tools range from
Facebook and Twitter where all the information is provided by people themselves,
to tools that silently collect information from a defined population by reading emails. When
your are going to do a business and want to used networking tools, we should plan first. You
need to ask that question before you start looking for the social media tools that are going to
suit you. There is no point having a presence on all the social networks if you don’t know
what you want to achieve or which audience you want to reach. Everybody know what are
the tools used for business which is Facebook, Twitter, Instagram,Whatsapp or Google. One
of the big advantages in posting to social networks is in driving traffic back to your website
and showing that you are an expert in your field.

A social media management tool is kind of like the “One Tool to Rule them All” for social
media. They should allow you to monitor and engage across all your social profiles. They
should provide reports so you can make sure what you are doing is successful. Choosing the
right social media management tool is a more complex decision. You’ll need to decide on one
that supports your social networks and think of things such as how many people are going to
be managing your social channels and what budget you can justify.

5.3 THREE PROBLEMS OR RISKS AND CORRECTIVE ACTION

Based on this assignment that acquire me to do business online in order to learnt how
to create network through business. It is good ways for us to learn and make used our social
network in more benefits way. The problem that I face is that I’m not someone that have a
business before like other students. It quite difficult for me to find the way to start a business.
This is because to create a business you have be passionate and love it. I find it difficult to get
my business to be aware by others. In order to improve this is that I have to get more active in
social media such as facebook. I cannot give up and have to keep on updating even though
people may not be aware at once because thing take time and thankful that I was able to make
sales at the end.

The second problem that I face is that I do not have enough times to monitor my
facebook page. As a student I have my own obligation, where I have assignment to be done.
Furthermore, I am a final year student, so I have many final reports to be submitted and other
project to handle. I think this is why I am not able to make much sales. If I want to stay in this
business industry, I have to change my strategy in order to gain more profit and to get my
business to be know by others. I have to manage my time and get more time to manage my
facebook page.

Lastly, the issue is ensuring that the technology you select solves the client's problem.
Clients don't always know what they mean when they say something, and you need to be sure
that you grasp the underlying problem or need and proceed to correct the corresponding
thing. Eventhough you have state it clearly, they still ask the things that are already state. In
order to improve, I have to post the advertisement in two languages do that it easy for
everyone to understand without language barrier.
