Networking around the world

Question
Do the classic networking skills work in any country, around the world? 
Answer
Absolutely. Growing your business through word-of-mouth marketing is a concept that crosses geographic, cultural, ethnic and political boundaries. Networking resonates in entrepreneurs all over the world.

The reason that referral marketing is so successful is because the lowest common denominator is that people want to both receive and give referrals.

People in any entrepreneurial economy can use a networking system to improve their business. If this system is done within the cultural context, the same networking concepts and techniques are almost completely transferable from one country to another.

All businesspeople, no matter their nationality, want to increase their opportunity to be successful, and networking is one of the best ways to do that.
