It’s no secret that a huge part of a networker’s success is tied to their effectiveness at one thing—following up with the contacts they make. Networking without following up is—to put it bluntly—nothing more than a waste of time.
So, it makes sense that one of the questions I’m most often asked is about follow up. No matter what part of the world I’m in, one of the first things people tend to ask is what I believe is the best way to follow up with new networking connections.
In this video, I share my answer to this question and if follow up is something you struggle with, I think you’ll find what I have to say quite reassuring because the most effective way of following up is much simpler than you might think.
Do you have a method of following up which has been particularly effective for you? If so, please share it in the comment forum below. Also, if you have an interesting story about how you followed up with someone and left a lasting impression on them or remarkable things happened as a result of your follow up, please share your story via www.SubmitYourNetworkingStory.com. When you submit your story, it will be considered for inclusion in an upcoming networking book I’m writing with Jack Canfield, and Gautam Ganglani. Thanks in advance for your participation!
