|OK, so you’ve got about 30 seconds to make a great first impression.
Here are some helpful tips on networking to make those seconds count:
Arrive prepared and on time:
Do research attendees before arriving at the event. This will help you make the most of your time.
Identify your prospect’s mission:
Do inquire about what their company does to learn how you can help them.
Understand the purpose of your conversation:
Do make time to help, advise and introduce people to other attendees. Helping someone out now could lead to opportunities or referrals later.
Recap and document your engagements:
Do record your contacts with any notes from the event, and follow up with a “nice to have met you” e-mail immediately.
