Whether it be on SME, fb, LinkedIn, twitter or in person, making the connection is everything if you are serious about growing your business and career.
But, simply making the connection is nothing without follow-up.
I big problem that I see in the eworld, is that many people don’t really know how to keep the connection going, and/or how to organize their contacts so that none of them falls through the cracks.
Myself, I use a combination of Outlook, Google calendar, a spreadsheet or two , CME, a responder and a system for sending cards through snail mail in order to ensure I stay in touch with those people that are vital to my business’ growth and prosperity.
Do you do anything differently to make sure that the much sought-after connection doesn’t get lost in the mix and become a wasted opportunity?
