You went to that industry convention.
You networked, meeting influentials.
You returned home
with a suitcase full of business cards.

All of this work is wasted
if you don’t follow-up
with the people you’ve met.

As Ivan Misner and
David Alexander,
authors of
Networking Like a Pro:
Turning Contacts into Connections

share

“A contact that you do not follow-up with
is a contact that will never
become a part of your network.
There will be no business
—no sales, no referrals,
no meeting the powerful CEO he knows
—unless you follow through.”

I’m horrible at following-up
and that’s unfortunate
because I meet so many people,
people who could really help
my writing career.

So this is a reminder to you
and to myself.

Touch base with your contact list.
Follow-up.
