If you keep these four techniques up you will build a strong and large network of professionals – and it will continue to grow and strengthen over time.
- Make a lasting impression
Introduce yourself properly to new people and say something positive or funny that makes people remember you.
- Always get back to people you met
Drop them an email a few days after you met and say it was nice to meet them and it will be nice to stay in touch.
- Continue to add new people to your network whenever you can
Never miss a chance to connect with new people. They are out there and you meet them in most of your daily activities such as work, conferences and social activities.
- Stay in touch with people
Reach out to people you know on a regular basis. Let them know about what you are doing, post useful information online and always say hello and small talk a bit when you see them.
