Networking has always been an essential to anyone that runs an independent business. Whether it is consciously done online, in a formal meeting, or even through a casual conversation, networking is present and an integral part of independent working.
Networking is the action of connecting to others, and developing these contacts with the intention of furthering your career. You want to publicize your occupation and the services you provide. Consequently, any act of spreading information relating to a business may be considered an act of networking. Usually this is done through meetups, conventions, and online networks such as LinkedIn.
Many of us now entering the ever changing professional world are innately tech-savvy and therefore have no trouble in making connections online. However in-person interactions can be uncomfortable and intimidating. The more time we spend in front of our computers the less practice and the less opportunities we have to make these in-person networking connections that are markedly important to the success of our business and betterment of our careers.
