Zoho for Business Networking
Business Networking is a highly productive way of marketing your business. A good network will enable you to build your contact base and over time, build highly trusted and valued relationships. Face-to-face networking can compliment digital marketing for your business too. People are much more likely to read and engage with mailshots or interact on social media if they’ve met you in person already.
Having the right systems in place to track 1-2-1s, automate follow-ups and identify your most effective meetings is critical to maximising your ROI for networking.
Zoho can help. Let’s keep it simple. Here are the tools you’ll need to Revolutionise Your Networking :

Target Cloud’s Business Networking Story
In March 2014, I joined the organisation known as 4Networking. It’s a UK based network with over 250 groups and thousands of members. The members are known as “passporters” and have the ability to travel to different groups across the UK. When I joined 4N, I saw this as a major unique over other networking options. It meant that I could very quickly build a new contact base in East Anglia and beyond for my new business venture.
Building my contact base led me to tracking my contacts, accounts and opportunities in Zoho Contact Manager from the start of the process. Contact Manager then grew into CRM and has become the centre of my business and is key to managing ongoing relationships – Craig Davies, 4Networking Regional Leader for Norfolk.
