What have we seen happen to the art of networking and navigating a crowded room to establish some rapport with a total stranger during the COVID-19 pandemic? In some; if not all cases, we have seen it come to a screeching halt. Does that mean the need to network stops completely even though your business development goals require you to continue to grow the business and keep your pipeline of prospects full?
Sure, it’s much harder to network when most networking events are being canceled, scaled back in size or temporarily put on hold. However, it’s a non-negotiable imperative that we need to keep social distancing in our neck of the woods if we are to beat this virus and return to some form of normalcy. We must look for some different ways of reaching out to people without totally abandoning some tried and true networking basics and still build effective connections from the comfort of your own home.
Networking for Success will look at some virtual networking approaches to remind your current and future business connections that you’re still around—and letting others realize that you even exist. Regardless of the need to make changes to your networking method, you can still connect with others in an influential and authentic way.
