The best networking books for business go beyond networking tips.

If you’re frustrated by networking or feel like you’re spending a lot of time and putting in a lot of effort, but not getting results, you need to go deeper than networking tips.

If you’re an experienced networker, maybe it’s time to take your influence and visibility to the next level with powerful networking strategies that bring results.

If you’re depending on networking as a sales or marketing channel, you need to get very serious about applying a strategy to your networking.

When I started getting very serious about networking as a key business, marketing, and sales strategy, I was looking for a way to get results …

  • Without spending more time
  • Without relying on random tips
  • And to do it in a way that was authentic and purposeful.

What I needed was a simple plan that would be easy to remember, but would also be effective.

I wanted a strategy to help me stay focused on the fundamentals but also grow with me as my networking skills increased.

I spent five years studying and writing about business networking until I developed the simple five-part strategy that I personally still use to this day.

Then I wrote it up in a simple easy-to-read book: “Networking on Purpose: a Five-Part Networking Success Plan to Build a Profitable and Powerful Business Network.”

Thanks to the power of my network of connections, friends, and colleagues, it launched on Amazon and hit #1 on the first day in two categories: Small Business & Entrepreneurship: Marketing and Business Life: Motivation & Self-Improvement.
