It may seem strange that she then goes on to talk about automating communication, pruning your contact list, and other impersonal-sounding techniques; but really, you do that with your old-fashioned friends, too (e.g., your Christmas card list!) What makes Dorie's books so useful is that she thinks systematically about people who are good at something -- in this case, networking -- do naturally. Well worth the low price!
Q. How do you prioritize the people you should be networking with?
A. In a technical sense, you can use a contact management system like Contactually or Vipor CRM to “bucket” contacts into priority levels, so it’ll send you a reminder if it’s been more than 30 or 60 days (for instance) since you’ve been in touch with a top contact. But philosophically, I’d ask myself questions like:
• How much do I like and enjoy this person? Do I think they could become a friend?
• How much do our professional worlds overlap? Is there a good chance we could work together or collaborate?
• How helpful could this person be to me professionally, and vice versa?
Answering those questions will help you prioritize.

1) A guiding definition for networking to keep in mind: "[networking is] how to be a good person in the business world. You need to look out for others." Well said.
2) Look For The Value You Can Provide. Clark directly addresses a concern that I and others have felt when seeking to build a relationship with a VIP or CEO - "how can I add value to them when they are already so successful?" Simply put, most successful people tend to focus on their area of specialization and usually have knowledge gaps elsewhere. Clark gives the example of someone who recently moved to your city (you can give them the "local view") or an executive who is looking to improve their health.
3) How To Think About Events. Major events and conferences often attract the attention in networking books and articles. They do present significant opportunities. Several entrepreneurs and authors (e.g. Tim Ferriss and John Lee Dumas) attribute much of their early success to conferences. Clark presents great suggestions and sympathy for introverts attending these events and how to make the most out of them.
4) Why To Host Events. Putting an event together puts is a secret of networking that more and more people are discovering. Clark gives the example of hosting small dinners based on a common theme. For example, she has hosted small events for business book authors. It is more work to organize an event. The rewards for being the organizer are also worth it!
5) Why Interviews Are Powerful.Read more ›
