Beauty Expo Australia provides business owners, managers, employees and even students the opportunity to network with the best beauty talent in Australia. Networking is a really valuable way to expand your knowledge, learn from the success of others, meet new clients and tell others about your business!
Here are 7 reasons to network at Beauty Expo Australia
1. Connections for the future
You've likely heard the saying 'it's not what you know, but who you know'... With so many professionals under one roof, including a superstar line-up of educators and brands, you’re bound to connect with talented people in your industry.
2. Endless opportunities
With a motivated group of beauty trade professionals comes an abundance of opportunities, and this is where the benefits of business networking are huge!
Opportunities like joint ventures, client leads, partnerships, speaking and writing openings, business or asset sales… the list goes on, and the opportunities afforded with networking really are endless.
So set yourself some specific goals, research the brands and people that you might want to connect with, and make sure the opportunities that you are interested in exploring align with your career goals and business vision.
3. Generation of referrals/increased business
Referrals gained through networking are usually of a high-quality and can even be pre-qualified for you - meaning that leads garnered from networking are often more valuable than those collected from other forms of marketing. The result? These leads/referrals are more likely to end up as your clients because of their relevance to your business (and vice versa).
4. Advice from the experts
The advice from other visitors is priceless! As trade professionals, who knows who you’ll meet and the valuable lessons you can teach one another. Make sure you also visit the Advice Hub on the Beauty Expo Australia floor to pick up some business nous - the organisations appearing at the hub will be announced closer to the ticket sale release date.
5. Raise your profile
Being visible and getting noticed are big benefits of networking at Beauty Expo Australia. Make sure you attend any free stage education on the expo floor relevant to your field, and attend ticketed education sessions to soak up all the latest techniques and trends that will contribute to your business. You can then help to build your reputation as a knowledgeable, reliable and supportive professional by offering useful information or tips to your clients who need it! The more you know, the more you grow.
6. Boost your confidence around positive influences
If you don’t have staff or a friend in the trade industry to attend Beauty Expo Australia with, don’t fret!
Attending the expo and networking will build your confidence - you'll meet new contacts and will likely even make some new friends! Networking is great for finding like-minded peers, and for meeting those within the industry who are positive and uplifting! Beauty Expo Australia brings the industry together under one roof, so you're bound to find someone inspiring to take notes from.
7. New business partners and friendships
Many friendships form as a result of networking because (mostly) you are all like-minded professionals that want to grow your businesses. Meeting and supporting each other will help to form strong friendships, business relationships and networks to carry you through whatever challenges you may face in your career, as well as people to celebrate all your professional wins!
