Have you ever noticed how fleeting your sense of connection can be after you receive a particularly exciting Tweet or comment?
You’re not alone.
When Facebook reminds you to wish friends and clients a happy birthday and Instagram gives you the chance to coo over their kitties and kids, it’s easier than ever to form new bonds and keep up with our networks.
But even as social media has expanded our communities across time zones and borders, it’s also led to the cultivation of “friendlies” — people a step above acquaintances but not quite rising to your trusted friends and colleagues.
If you want to grow your support systems and cultivate loyal customers, you’ve got to leave your laptop behind, stash your smart phone deep in your bag, and spend some time meeting people in the flesh.
In a FREE training, Brigitte Lyons and Megan Auman share how you can ditch your fear of networking once and for all, freeing you to make the connections that will take your business to the next level.
- Why you might want to consider attending a conference or trade show.
- How to set other people at ease, no matter where you are.
- Simple steps you can take to connect with the right people in your local community.
