Personal interaction with targets is an effective way for manufacturers to develop new business. However, networking is more than showing up to an event and handing out business cards. Furthermore, not everyone has the natural ability to easily sell their products and parts to strangers. Networking involves engaging with the right people at the right events in the right way.
