Networking is not about making a connection and then forgetting about it. Rather, it’s keeping in touch and showing interest and respect for your connections.
But how do we communicate and respond effectively in networking?
Here are some tips to help you:
💎 Be prompt and timely. Don’t wait too long to follow up or reply to your connections. Respond to their messages, calls, or emails within 24 hours or as soon as possible.
💎 Be personal and friendly. Use their name and title and address them as you would in person. Use casual and conversational language and tone that reflect your personality and relationship.
💎 Be consistent and reliable. Keep in touch with them regularly and update them on your progress, feedback, or results. Show them that you are trustworthy and dependable.
Networking is a two-way street. By following these tips, you can communicate and respond effectively in networking with anyone.
