3 Reasons You Should Share Information With Your Contacts
Out of all world history, information has never been more of a currency than it is now. This is not to say that information was not always a valuable commodity but in today’s day and age, it is highly in demand. The hunger for information and ways to relay it gave birth to the information superhighway, otherwise known as the Internet. As chat rooms and online forums continue to thrive, it’s the information within that causes the stir.
In business networking, many things are shared as relationships are forged. Among the important aspects of networking is the sharing of referrals, resources, and of course, information. The following, are three reasons why you should proactively share information with your contact base.

As you readily give out information, you will notice that you will also receive the same, in various forms; like upcoming event info, job openings, industry info, and yes, referrals are a form of information.
