Why Networking

Networking is a function of business intended to help you make new contacts, forge business relationships and build awareness of your business products and services.

GBF is a type of business social network whose reason for existing is business networking activity (or connecting with other business people in order to further each other's business interests - forming mutually beneficial business relationships).

Many business uses networking as a key factor in their marketing plan. It helps to develop a strong feeling of trust between those involved and play a big part in raising the profile and takings of a company. Suppliers and businesses can be seen as networked businesses, and will tend to source the business and their suppliers through their existing relationships and those of the companies they work closely with.
