Benefits of Offline Blog Networking

Mrs. Fields Manila PavilionDo you attend on Blogger meet-ups or sponsored events for Bloggers? I do! Dont be shy! Join fellow bloggers as much as you can. Chances are, you will meet bloggers that you admire and some of your blog visitors. Socialize! Dont forget to introduce yourself and always bring a box of Business Card.

Offline Networking is a more personalize manner of marketing for your blog, products or even services. Who knows, one of them could be your future Business partner, Customer or Advertiser!

I first attended a Bloggers meet-up last August 21,2007 during the soft launch of Mrs. Fields second branch in Manila Pavilion.

  • Just came across your post. I found it informative for me and I’m sure many others. I did also have small trouble subscribing to the blog but figured it out; I’m still a 2-finger typist :) . Thank you and keep your blogging spirit going strong.

  • With the internet on the rise most people do not even consider offline networking anymore. The internet is much cheaper and easier to use, however as the article states offline networking is a much more personal way of doing business. You get your face out there and people learn who you are. I recommend you continue to do online networking but also go to events on occasion and network in person.
