Through our efforts to expand our Golden Events Group contact lists, we’ve learned that a few behaviors are essential. Here are the simple techniques we keep in mind every time we attend an industry event with great networking potential.
Following up with new connections is one thing we know we can’t afford to forget. This doesn’t mean just reaching out within a day or two of our first meeting; we make a point of checking in regularly with every new addition to our networks. After all, you never know when you might be able to help an ally with an important project (and vice versa).
It’s also important to offer a clear value proposition to every potential contact we meet. We describe what we do and the unique ways in which Golden Events Group is equipped to help others reach their goals. We’re also sure to do this as concisely as possible in order to get the other person talking about his or her needs and objectives.
When we receive further introductions from our existing connections, we’re careful to reach out as quickly as we can. We don’t want to send the message that any contact is unimportant, so we follow up with every referral just as we would with someone we met in person.
These simple strategies have boosted our networking efforts. Follow Golden Events Group on Facebook to receive more of our best connecting tips.
