That’s an important question! Often entrepreneurs commit this mistake i.e. they simply overlook the follow-up process. Sometimes they do the follow-up after a month or so. This can be a blunder as you shouldn’t expect the event attendees to remember you after a month, unless you are dashing guy or girl who turns head!
Usually a follow-up is suggested after a day or so. You can call or drop an e-mail, referring to some interesting discussion/conversion that you had with the person. Rather than talking about a business deal, you can offer to help; e.g. you can provide information or a small service, which might help the person. And yes, you can show your willingness to strengthen the connection over a cup of coffee.
Now, that you have checked my tips on networking, it’s time to buckle up for some real action! Don’t take failure and rejection seriously. Focus on long-term goals and plan your networking activities accordingly.
