Nine tips to being a better networker

Nine tips to being a better networker | financial services | Scoop.it

Trina McColl from Ignite PR and Marketing shares nine tips on how to become a better networker.

 

1. Don’t be a wet fish - there is nothing worse than a sloppy hand shake and a sad face – smile!

2. Look sharp - first impressions count and you are your own brand

3. To help you remember someone’s name repeat it back to them when you introduce yourself.

4. Have your 30 second elevator pitch about your business ready when someone asks ‘what do you do?’

5. Networking is not about selling, it’s about listening, learning and connecting.

6. Always present a business card to people you meet before you leave a conversation.

7. Don’t leave home without business cards.

8. If you want to move on, politely say ‘it was lovely to meet you but there are a few other people I need to catch up with’, then shake their hand and walk away. If all else fails excuse yourself to the bathroom.

9. Don’t be afraid to interrupt – most groups don’t mind if someone new joins in
