Find Someone To Network With

Networking is all about putting yourself out there—and we don’t just mean tentatively dipping your toe in the water. You need to be bold, committing 100% to finding the right people for you to network with. We’re not just talking anybody who’s in your industry, we’re talking people who share your outlook, your interests, your career goals. All good networking relationships—whether that’s social or business—are built on chemistry and common ground. Which is where our profiles come in. Your profile is the easiest and quickest way for someone to get to know you, to figure out if you have that common ground from which a networking relationship can grow. Before you begin—we thought we’d share our 3 top tips on how to find the right networking connection.

 

  1. Strategize: Networking should never be ad-hoc—you may get lucky once in a while and have something fall into your lap—but if you really want to find the right networking connections you need to have a strategy in place. This means having a clear profile of who you want to connect with, and a clear understanding of what you’re hoping to achieve.
  2. Be Specific: One of the biggest marketing mistakes companies make is to aim for a broad appeal and wind up failing to make an impact anywhere—and the same is true of networking. If you want to find the right person to network with you need to drill down on the details, be as specific and niche as you can and rely on finding common ground in those key areas.
  3. Plan Ahead: Finding the right person to network with isn’t your endgame—it’s simply the first step. This is why you need to have a plan for developing your networking relationships. Whether that’s attending events together, exchanging resources, or even simply having a cup of coffee together. Engagement is key to building a networking relationship.

Now that you’re prepared there’s no excuse! Fill out your profile today and you can start connecting with like-minded people and building your business and social networking relationships.
