  2. 2. The #1 source of all business in all industries?<br />Word-of-mouth referrals.<br />It’s who you know.<br />And it’s who they know.<br />
  3. 3. In a global economy<br />whose population<br />in July, 2009 was over<br />6.75 billion and growing… <br />That’s a lot “who-you-knows” to know.<br />
  4. 4. Handshake 2.0 showcases companies and their people.<br />If you don’t know them, <br />you feel as if you do.<br />
  5. 5.
  6. 6. Is being known through <br />Handshake 2.0 <br />as powerful as<br />being known in person?<br />No.<br />But it’s the next best thing.<br />
  7. 7. Using Handshake 2.0, a business can<br /><ul><li> get to know other businesses
  8. 8. get known by other businesses. </li></ul>“Who you know” works both ways.<br />
  9. 9. The more “who-you-knows”—<br />contacts—<br />a company can generate online,<br />the greater its pool of leads for its contact-to-conversion ratio.<br />
  10. 10. The more a company is known, <br />the more likely it is to become a contact for—and a source of—products, services, and partnerships.<br />
  11. 11. So, even online,<br />“It’s still who you know.”<br />
