I recently attended a 'how to network successfully' seminar and picked up some great ideas that I would like to share with you on how to get remembered and those very important first impressions. Before any group meeting or a one-to-one with a new contact always make sure you follow this easy guide.
- Hand out your card at the very beginning of the meeting.
- Hand the person the card with the readable side up, with a thumb on the upper corner so that they can immediately read the card.
Make it easy to offer your contact details by always carrying your cards. It is much quicker to take a card from your pocket than it is to send out an email or put a number in a mobile phone.
