One of the best ways to network is through the use of technology and the internet! Entrepreneurs no longer need to gather in a room to exchange information.
With apps and websites like LinkedIn, Instagram, and Alignable, networking has become unbelievably easy, but once you connect with a person or business, you have to keep that relationship growing!
This is where email becomes extremely important.
When sending a networking e-mail, you must remember they can't see you or your expressions. So your message has to be clear and easy to understand without being misinterpreted.
Make sure you always include the following information in an initial email. You may also want to reiterate this if you're following up to a previously sent email:
· Who you are, including the name of your business and your title
· Where you met the recipient or who referred you to them
· Why you are contacting them
The networking email is one of the first, and most important, stages of establishing a connection. This email can lead to additional connections, information, and support.
So set those fears aside and send that email!!
