Social Networking Tips

05/19/2010

“Successful networking is all about building intimate, sincere relationships based on mutual generosity.”

  1. If you’re a tad reluctant walking into a room full of strangers, try and seek out  a familiar face. Even if you’ve only met the person one time that may help to get over the initital akwardness you’re feeling.
  2. When you meet somebody for the 1st time repeat their name – this will help you commit it to memory.
  3. Listen and ask questions but don’t do all the talking or you won’t get to know the people you’re meeting.
  4. Be a connector… if you’re in a conversation with somebody and another person walks up, be sure and introduce those people.
  5. You have 48 hours to follow up with somebody after you have met them or studies show that they will completly forget about you.
