New Ways to Network (GWTW264)

Nothing inspires more dread and contempt within the introverted creative professional (myself included) than the word and subsequent action: network. Networking conjures up images of business cards, small talk, and the overly-enthusiastic sales person. Regardless of the negative connotations of networking, it is a critical function of your business development. You need a network, you need other people, and they need you.

7 New Ways to Network:

  1. Reach out and engage with the people you want to connect with.
  2. Get curious about the other person.
  3. Make networking part of a creative project.
  4. Invite people to events. If you are invited to an event, meetup with the person who invited you.
  5. Be a resource.
  6. Build relationships with a long-term focus.
  7. Don’t look at this person as a business vending machine.
