Lets talk about the 4 top tactics for networkers to stay in touch. It’s no good meeting somebody once and expecting great things to happen you are not going to sell to someone after only one interaction.
Hi I’m Rob Brown and I’m head of the Global Networking Council and the Networking Coaching Academy. We work with and interview all the top networkers in the world to find out what they are doing so we can bring that great stuff to you.
Use things like Christmas, Easter, birthdays, thanksgiving, anniversaries to put in a phone call to people, send them a quick text, a quick message or even a quick card – it’s a great way to stay connected.
Its one of the best things you can do to people. If you find out what they are looking for , can you put a new client customer their way, can you put a prospect on their radar that they can convert for some business – that really makes you memorable.
Make quick introductions to people – I can across this person and I thought you might be interested in them, I’m just sending a quick email to you two people, I thought you should talk and say a bit about each one, but making introductions to great resources and things like that for people, could really help stay in touch.
Send somebody a book, point them to a website or send them an article that is going to be of interest to them. There are loads of nice gifts you can send to people that will make them smile and make their day – and it’s a fantastic tactic for keeping in touch.
So know, if you are going to be a world class networker, its not just about a one night stand its about making the relationship endure and finding reasons to stay in touch with people is the trait of a world class connector
