Announcing an E-Book titled "Networking 101 and Then Some" which brings together what every individual who networks for their business should be thinking about and doing when they are out there. Its size (its only a little over 30 pages) makes it a easy read and is packed full of real world steps that anyone can take and be a more successful networker when they go out.
"Networking 101 and Then Some" is a must read for any business networker. Most networkers don't know how to network effectively, so they show up, gather around people they already know and don't put themselves out there and usually at the end of the event wonder why they wasted their time doing this. This E-Book gives a solid range of basic and advanced suggestions, some steps that are simple to implement and some that the reader may need work on.
As a business coach I look to help people be more successful. When I entered the market, and yes networked, I found out that very few people networked well (including me, at the beginning) and everybody was begging for how to network more effectively. So I read a lot of books, took my experiences and started doing one hour seminars, it then turned into several hour fun, action packed workshops on networking. And now "Networking 101 and Then Some" which is a compilation of the things I have read learned and learned not to do.
There are chapters broken up into sections titled, Before, During, The Conversation, After, and more taking the reader step by step through what everone should be doing whenever they network. There are Quick Tips that can be found throughout the book allowing each person to improve their experience almost immediately.
The BEFORE section writes about actions each person should do prior to attending the networking event. Things like setting goals, whether it be collecting a certain amount of business cards, meeting some number of new people and so on. All designed to make the networking event more productive for each person.
There is a whole chapter on Do's and Don'ts for everyone to review so that they can look and act more professional and create that important positive first impression. Some tiny things that make you look good…or not.
While this E-Book is focused around external business networking, there are chapters reflecting on professional appearance, speaking one on one, and how your body language and tone of voice effects the conversation. These and other chapters can be useful for anyone, anytime there is a conversation.
"Networking 101 and Then Some" is designed to give everyone a ready leg up on how to be a better networker with the "and Then Some" providing some advanced tips on how someone can really stand out from the pack building deeper and more profitable relationships.
