Just to give you something to help you if you’re new to networking events or If you want a few reminders. Here are our 8 tips for successful networking.

 

8 Tips for Successful Networking.

 

  1. Be on time-Showing up early at a networking event is a much better strategy than getting there on the later side. If you are one of the first few people you'll notice that it's calmer and quieter – and people won't have settled into groups yet. It's easier to find other people who don't have conversation partners yet. It enables you to get a feel of who you may wish to engage.
  2. Ask easy questions and listen. -Don’t stay waiting in the corners of the room, be confident and start a conversation. This can be simply by introducing yourself or even simply walk up to a group/ person and say May I join you" or "What brings you to this event?" Don't forget to listen intently to their replies. If you're not an extrovert, you're probably a good listener – and listening can be an excellent way to get to know a person.
  3. Smile and leave any negative attitude at the door.It's a simple – but often overlooked the rule of engagement. By smiling, you'll put your nervous self at ease, and you'll also come across as warm and inviting to others. Be positive about this opportunity, if you put out a positive vibe people will be drawn to talk to you.
  4. Ditch the sales pitch- There will be time to ‘sell’ yourself at these events. Do not lead with a sales pitch. Have a discussion and build a rapport. If a potential new customer does ask you about your service or what you have to offer be ready with an easy to understand description of what you have. It might be good to prepare this before the event.
  5. Share your passion- When you are passionate about a project, product or service, this will shine through in your conversation. People buy into people and if you are able to show your enthusiasm for your work this will be infectious.
  6. Don't hijack the conversation.Some people who dislike networking may overcompensate by commandeering the discussion. Don't forget: The most successful networkers are good at making other people feel special. Look people in the eye, repeat their name, listen to what they have to say, and suggest topics that are easy to discuss. Be a conversationalist, not a talker.
  7. Enjoy yourself- Try to enjoy this experience. You never know who you might meet and where this may lead, you may create a new contact, sell your product/service, gain insight into a business or product or you may even make a friend or two.
  8. Remember to follow up.It's often said that networking is where the conversation begins, not ends. If you've had a great exchange, ask your conversation partner the best way to stay in touch. Some people like email or phone; others prefer social networks like LinkedIn. Get in touch within 48 hours of the event to show you're interested and available, and reference something you discussed, so your contact remembers you. This is a fantastic way to build lasting professional relationships.

 

We hope you enjoy this event. We welcome any feedback you have.

 

I look forward to seeing you all.

 

Wendy Gray.
