6 Easy Steps to Being a Master Networker All of the Time

6 Easy Steps to Being a Master Networker All of the Time | Networking 101 | Scoop.it

When there’s only so much time in the day, it’s easy to overlook the value of building and maintaining your professional relationships. But being stressed and busy is no excuse. Relationships take effort, of course, but throughout my career, I’ve constantly been reminded that my success is dependent on the strength of my network. You really can’t do it all alone!

 

Thankfully, I’ve discovered that the simplest tricks — tricks you’ve heard before, but aren’t truly putting into practice — have an enormous impact on relationship building. They don’t take a lot of effort, but they do take commitment. That said, even taking these six simple steps can help you prioritize relationships in your life almost immediately.

Effective networking: perfecting post-meeting contact

Effective networking: perfecting post-meeting contact | Networking 101 | Scoop.it

Networking is more effective the more you do it; it shouldn't be something you only do in a crisis. Don't become the sort of networker who only contacts people when they are looking for a job – that's not the way to build lasting, successful relationships. Successful networking is an ongoing career activity, and your contacts should be people you can get in touch with at any time without feeling awkward or embarrassed.

 

The first meeting you have with someone is usually just about getting to know each other. The real results come over time, as you and your contact each begin to understand each other's needs.
