Networking Tip: Never Eat By Yourself

It seems all too easy to just pop out of the office and grab a quick sandwich to bring back to your desk. Instead, consider taking your full lunch break and asking a co-worker to join you or call a friend or contact you know is in the area and sit down for a conversation. This helps build your relationships with your inner network, while doing something you would have to do anyway.

Networking Tip: Always Say Thank You

In the world of business, your personal network can be everything. When you call on a contact to help you in some way, make sure to thank them. If you don’t, you run the risk of losing the contact and tarnishing your good name among other contacts that you may share. If you start to become known as the person that is always asking for things and never returning the favor or even thanking them, word will spread quickly and networking will become quite difficult for you. A simple, heart felt thank you email is all takes for people to feel appreciated. If you want to make it a little more personal, write a thank you card and send it to them.

Networking Tip: Remember The Golden Rule

When networking at an event, remember the golden rule: “Do unto others, as you would have them do unto you.” Meaning, if you would not like to have someone give you the old overbearing sales pitch, don’t do that to them. Be genuine, smile, and know that networking is all about making lasting business relationships, not to sell something to someone.

Networking Tip: Don’t Be Too Aggressive

Don’t try to connect with people right away. It seems very aggressive if someone gets a friend request on Facebook or an alert to make a connection on LinkedIn a few minutes after an interaction with you. Wait until after the event or even the next business day to try and contact them.
