Networking isn’t an Event

Your Network Is... | Networking Isn't an Event | AprilNoelle.comTrue networking isn’t an event.

It’s a call, a coffee, a drink.
Networking is building a relationship with the other person. It’s getting them to trust you and you to trust them.
I get frustrated when I hear people, especially entrepreneurs, say that they don’t get anything out of networking events. 
If this is you, you’re doing it wrong!
That’s typically because the relationship begins and ends in that 20 minute (or less) conversation. Both parties shared what their profession, stated some pleasantries then went off to the next person.
Grabbing a card is easy.
Attending an event is easy.
Building a relationship is hard.
The purpose of a networking event is to meet people. The purpose of networking is grow your influence, build trust, and get the other to trust you enough to (1) remember you and (2) refer people to you.
What have your results been?
Do you find networking events not worth the time you put into them?
Then, it’s time for a change. I am here to help.
You never know who someone knows. You don’t know if they are two degrees of separation away from Bill Gates or Martha Stewart.
How many business cards are in your pocket, wallet or desk? When’s the last time you reached out to them and found out what was going on in their life? If the answer is never, that’s who you need to call tomorrow.

It’s Not Too Late to Order Your Invitations for Graduation!

This is an advertisement for Basic Invite but all opinions are mine.

I can’t believe it’s almost the end of the school year already. Graduation season has arrived! I can’t wait to see all of my loved ones get promoted or graduate this 2018 year!

What is even more exciting is creating the perfect graduation announcement invitation. I love to design my own thing and Basic Invite makes it even easier.

What makes Basic Invite different?

Graduation Invitations | AprilNoelle.comAlmost Unlimited Colors

Basic Invite is one of the few websites that allows customers almost unlimited color options with instant previews online. Once you select a design you can change the color of each element on the card to over 180 different color options so you can make sure the card is exactly how you want it down to the littlest detail. This is what we feel sets us apart from almost any other online stationery company and is what we feel is our biggest draw.

Custom Samples

Basic Invite is one of the few websites that allows customers the ability to order a printed sample of their actual invitation so they can see exactly how it will print as well as the paper quality before they ever have to place their final order.

Over 40 Different Colors of Envelopes

Basic Invite is just as colorful with our envelopes as we are with our invitations. Customers can choose from over 40 different colors when it comes to their envelopes so that they can make their invitation stand out even before it is opened. All of our envelopes are peel and seal so the envelopes can be quickly and securely closed.

Address Capturing Service

Basic Invite offers an address capturing service that allows customers to simply share a link on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or any other form of social media to request their friends and family’s addresses which will be stored in the customer’s account and can then be selected during the design process. Basic Invite offers recipient address printing at no cost on all Christmas card orders.


Foil cards are available in gold, silver, and rose gold. Customers can choose flat or raised foil on all of Basic Invite’s foil designs.

Don’t Forget the Thank You Card!

I am pretty good at remembering to send out timely thank you cards and graduations are no exception. Get your thank you graduation card from Basic Invite too so that it can be just as beautiful as the invitation!
