Networking can be a great way to build your business by getting in front of more prospects and referral partners, but networking is a skill, and like any other skill, it takes some practice to get it right. If you’ve been networking, but not getting any leads (or clients, or referral partners) from all the networking you’re doing, it might be time to build up your networking skills. Start by using these tips to network more effectively.
Be Strategic About Where You’re Networking
Make sure you have your business cards with you and that all the information on those cards is up to date.
Have a place to put all the business cards you collect so you can follow up with them later. A lost business card is a lost opportunity, so make sure you know ahead of time where all the business cards are going so you can keep them together while you’re networking.
Pro tip: write notes on the business cards to remind yourself of the conversation you had with them so you can mention it when you follow up.
