Tips for better business networking
I’ve thought a lot about networking lately. I don’t mean networking in the sneaky salesman style, but rather, in truly concentrating on how to be better at growing and connecting with your network.
Building your network is not just about having people available to help you, it’s so that those people can depend on you to help them too. Networking is about two-way relationships.
Tonight on Twitter, I asked for tips for better business networking. Here are the excellent replies that I received. Thanks for chiming in friends. Please leave a comment below with a tip of your own. I’d love to explore other great ways to improve networking.
@davedelaney take the online relationship offline at some point. Face to face is best, but even the phone does wonders.

@davedelaney meaningful conversation. Stop selling and start communicating, let those around you decide your worth based on your actions

@davedelaney Always talk to people when I am out creating photo captures and it will always get around to me handing out my business card.
