Benefits of habit “Networking”

First step:

Get in touch with 1 person


1. Today, get in touch with 1 person from your business circle. Have a quick chat and just check up on them. Do this once this week.
2. Next week, get in touch with 2 people from your business circle.
3. Keep increasing, until you feel have a strong network of business acquaintances.

Helpful tips to make it a habit:

✓ Trigger your mind. Have little note always present so you would remember it’s your networking time. Or if you keep a list of contacts, have it somewhere always visible.
✓ Let the app help. Use the reminder function of this app to ring when it’s time to network.
✓ Reward yourself. Once you’ve gone 2 weeks of successful networking habit, reward yourself by meeting with one or more of your business acquaintances for networking dinner. It’s a good way to relax and get to know each other a little bit better.

Tips for beginners:

✓ Use social media. These days it has never been easier to keep in contact with someone. LinkedIn has been specifically designed with business networking in mind and so you should use it to its full potential.
✓ Use chat apps. Always a good way to keep in touch is via chat apps like Viber. A lot of modern business people use it for a quick chat or question. You should do the same or even create a chat group for related people to grow your business network.
✓ Take notes. Make sure to take notes on your contacts. Their birthdays, their achievements, little things about their tastes – as long as you remember those little things, it’s going to be easier when eventually you will ask for a favor.
