How to Network Efficiently
We all know how important networking is for building a business or promoting a project, but what are the best practices for networking? How do we know when we’re doing it right? Here are a few tips to get you started and nurture the connections you make while attending a blog conference.
- Be Yourself: Your contacts aren’t just buying into your blog, they’re putting stake in you. They want to know you, the real you, and create a lasting relationship. Don’t be afraid to put yourself out there and talk about what your passionate about or share what motivates you. People want to know and I’m sure that you would also like to know who your strongest supporters are, so don’t be afraid to share a piece of yourself with others.
- Know Your Audience: Every conversation you participate in is different and one pitch will most definitely not fit them all. When striking up a conversation with a fellow blogger or brand, get to know their mission, interests and future pursuits.
