How to hit your funding goal by network mapping

In business, your network is your net worth. Raising money is first and foremost a sales process and requires a sales approach in order for you to hit your goal.  The IFW Network mapping process provides you with a realistic idea of how much money you can raise through your campaign. The process involves looking through your contacts in your various communities, platforms, and devices, and mapping out how much you expect them to give. Taking out this guesswork will allow you to be more targeted in your marketing, confident with your ask, and clear on the path to hitting your funding goal. Also, learn strategies for expanding and growing your network if your immediate list is limited.
