For the 21st Century Author or Future Author, Networking is essential.  Usually, the new author does not have the contacts and media exposure to catapult his or her work to success.

Networking is done on a local level in part by attending Networking events.  As a networker your goal is to meet people, show interest in their businesses, share your business, and find ways to benefit others. If you focus on helping others, your reward will follow.

If you are able to attend an event as a vendor, remember this very important tip.  Ask someone to stand with you at your vendor table who is a client or customer and is familiar with your product or service. This person is your walking testimony.

In exchange, offer that person something such as a free product or service.  Both your company AND your client or customer will WIN.

As warmer weather approaches, there are many networking events occurring.

After attending my first GABE event in February, I was very impressed by the friendliness and professionalism of the organization and participants. At that moment I decided that this is the type of event in which Math 1 On 1, LLC should participate.

  1. I just wanted to inform you and your readers of an event in Houston. It is the National Black Book Festival.
    The following information is taken from the NBBF’s website:
    The National Black Book Festival (NBBF) is an annual event, sponsored by Cushcity.com, the world’s largest African-American retailer online. The event attracts a wide array of authors, publishers, book clubs, libraries and individual readers from the Southwest U.S. and nationwide. NBBF 2010 will be held at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Downtown Houston.

    The event features a pavilion of authors, including those who are notable and new. Book signing and discussion sessions with featured authors, workshops and seminars, a spoken word poetry slam and book club give-aways are just a few of the exciting featured activities at NBBF. Authors will be grouped according to genre and there are 17 genres that will be represented.
