Book Description

Most people become lax at maintaining their professional business network when they've worked with a company a while. Having a dead or outdated business network can mean business suicide to even the most skilled expert.

Whether you've been laid off and are looking for work or are a small business owner trying to grow a business, connections are crucial for business success. And that means networking effectively should be one of your priorities. Here are a few tips you'll find inside this book to help you get the results you seek from business networking.
  • Before you go to a networking meeting, be prepared with a goal. Who do you want to meet? Why are you there? Have a conversation icebreaker ready to get to know the right people.
  • Don't reserve every seat and act like a grump if someone unfamiliar wants to sit there. Welcome the opportunity that a stranger presents. They may be your next prospect.
  • Treat referrals like gold. Contact the referral within a day, if possible. Let the referrer know how things went.
  • Online, your email creates the first impression just like your physical presence does at face-to-face meetings. Be the business professional that you are.
  • Any email you send has the potential for being forwarded to an untold number of people. Before you press the "send" key, give your message the "front page" test. Ask, "How would I feel if this made the front page of the newspaper?"
Connections are crucial for business success, but it's not so much who you know as who knows you. How did you find your last business connection? You probably asked a few friends who they used. That's how business networking works. 

Make sure your network is alive and well. The bite-sized tips in this book can help.

Editorial Reviews

Review

This tips book is a complete update of the previous print edition. Here are some reader comments on that version.
  • WOW. I can't wait until the next chamber mixer. Its really packed with some very good tips. I will definitely put them into practice. - Thomas Spayth, Small Business Owner
  • I think that it's a good primer for the networking newbie, but it still has enough nuggets in them that a networking veteran can still refer back to it as well. It's succinct, and offers brevity at the same time. - H. Dean Hua, Moderater: The Networker's Network

From the Author

Thank you for considering my book. Networking has been around for ages -- way before the social media craze that exists today. And it can help you be successful by connecting one-on-one with the right people by building business relationships.
