Helen Nicholson | Business Networking

Helen Nicholson is a passionate South African who thrives on the meaningful work she does as a consultant in the area of ‘leadership development’.

Helen is a mentor at Shanduka Black Umbrellas for aspiring African entrepreneurs and she is a founding member of the Professional Speakers Association of South Africa.

She currently offers two presentations; ‘Mindfulness – a Business Game-Changer’ and ‘Grow Your Network, Grow Your Business’:

The ‘Grow Your Network, Grow Your Business ‘presentation will enable you to:

  • Realise the importance of developing your own personal brand.
  • Access the power of LinkedIn as a business development tool.
  • Determine how to identify the power brokers in networks i.e. connectors and mavens, and how to leverage those relationships. 

Linkedin Course

The Beginner/Intermediate module is a stand-alone course. There is a 10% discount if you attend all three modules.

The Opposite to Advertising
Basically, content marketing is the art of communicating with your customers and prospects without selling. It is non-interruption marketing. Instead of pitching your products or services, you are delivering information that makes your buyer more intelligent.

The essence of this content strategy is the belief that if we, as businesses, deliver consistent, ongoing valuable information to buyers, they ultimately reward us with their business and loyalty. According to Roper Public Affairs,
•    80 percent of business decision makers prefer to get company information in a series of articles versus an advertisement.
•    70 percent say content marketing makes them feel closer to the sponsoring company, while
•    60 percent say that company content helps them make better product decisions.

Think of this – what if your customers looked forward to receiving your marketing? What if when they received it, via print, email, website, they spent 15, 30, 45 minutes with it?

Why LinkedIn?

Other than Facebook and Twitter, LinkedIn is strictly business – and has become a “secret weapon for B2B activities” for Helen Nicholson and such as:
1.   Replacing Cold Calling
2.   Generating New Leads
3.   Finding the Decision Maker
