Let’s see if this sounds familiar. . .
You attend lots of mixers, meetings, coffees and conferences. You collect tons of business cards and connect with hundreds, even thousands of people online. But what do you have to show for it?
You’re “busy”, but not “busy” in a good way – with clients and customers and growing your business. You’re racing around with too much to do and never getting anywhere.
Try this instead: Whenever you register for an event – whether it’s a conference, networking mixer or other meeting – schedule time for following up. Look at your calendar and put some time aside in the day or two after your event to follow up with the people you meet. Having it “scheduled” will make it more likely to happen.
And remember, if you’re too busy to schedule any follow up time, then you’re too busy to be going to yet another event.
