Strategies for Building Professional Networks
Since learning how to network is so important to success in business today, we make sure to cover the topic in detail as part of our RevoLusion Consultants, Inc. learning system. Along with the basics like icebreakers and how to follow up, we also provide practical strategies that make it easier to build a thriving contact list.
Here are a few RevoLusion Consultants, Inc. networking tips that work for everyone:
• Focus on Listening: This is actually great advice for any dialogue situation, but it’s especially relevant when contacting. We make sure to introduce ourselves and share some info about ourselves. However, our primary focus is on giving our conversation partner the floor. This one technique alone often makes us the most memorable people in the room.
• Identify Needs We Can Meet: Another advantage of listening is that we can discover ways to be of service to the people we’ve met. If we hear about a solution or an introduction we can make right away, we do so – without thought of what we might gain in return.
• Be Genuine: All relationships are built on honesty, and that starts with the initial meeting. The best networks are built by those with the courage to be true to themselves.
These techniques can be used effectively by anyone who wants to build a solid contact list. Follow RevoLusion Consultants, Inc. on Twitter for more networking strategies.
