How many people do you know who attend networking functions to grow their business? When you meet someone at a networking function and you feel that you have made a connection, how do you follow up with that person? Do you stand beside him or her at the function and try to get to know them or do you set up a “let’s get acquainted” meeting over coffee?
How about collecting business cards? When you return to your office do you take the time to look at each card you collected and get to know the person whose card you are looking at or do you send out an email blast to everyone you met and tell them how great it was to meet them? Here is my question to you; if you did not take the time to really get to know that person, how do you know it was great to meet them? How do you feel when you receive an email blast; do you feel that it is personal and meant just for you? Or, do you delete it and move on to the next email in your inbox?
How often do you take the time to look at a person’s website and find out what he or she really does? What does your website say about you? For instance, if you take the time to visit my website, you will know exactly what I do and what my mission statement is. That will help you when making the decision of how you would like to connect with me in the future.
When you give a referral, how knowledgeable are you about the person you are referring? Referrals can make or break friendships, business ventures, and even family members.
If you are truly working on a New Beginning in your current venture, ask yourself, “How well do I know the people I am doing business with?”
