Humorous Networking Poem and Do’s and Don’ts

Networking Do’s and Don’ts

I all the time get pleasure from talking at networking occasions. I get there an hour early to arrange all the pieces for my presentation after which I stand behind the room and watch individuals enter.

This is the chance for them to rub shoulders and minds with different professionals and but the most typical factor that’s achieved…a hesitation when getting into, a “look see” for anybody they acknowledge, after which a beeline to that individual and a flip of a serviette on the again of their chair to ensure a “protected seat”. What a poor funding!

The purpose for networking is to EXPAND and EXCELLERATE alternatives to be of service to others. By far, being a useful resource of data to attach others with these that may assistance is a a lot better place to carry than the “salesperson” who’s pitching their stuff.

Enterprise has modified dramatically. At one assembly this girl had 4 completely different enterprise playing cards holders and needed to determine which one to offer me. At this identical assembly a person got here up and confronted me along with his brochure in my face and rapidly informed me about all of the options of his enterprise. I used to be searching for a plug I may pull to cease the recording! So in honor of them…I wrote this poem….

The Unproductive Networker
I am an unproductive networker
I’ve playing cards up the wazoo
Nobody desires to speak to me
Or ask me what I do

I simply cannot perceive it
Do not know what the issue is
I’ve playing cards of many colours
For that and that and this

I promote insurance coverage and juices
I’ve nutritional vitamins galore
I arrange web sites on the facet
And I promote candles in my retailer

I educate yoga in my spare time
And assist people who smoke who need to stop
I groom doggies on the weekends
And I even clear up …sh…..oot

I work arduous all day and nite
And I am devoted too
I need to have that actual success
For me and in addition you

So will not somebody please assist me
And inform me what to do
I am open to obtain recommendation
I am listening to you

So let me offer you some fast do’s and don’ts to organize you when networking.

DO – Take into consideration the PURPOSE of the assembly you might be attending. Who’s going to be there? How are you going to be a useful resource to that viewers of individuals? Have that one card prepared to offer out and solely that card.

DON’T – Take out each card of each enterprise you symbolize. It solely appears to be like like you might be scattered and never targeted or severe about doing enterprise.

DO – Ask extra questions on what the opposite individual is searching for and why they got here to this specific assembly.

DON’T – Pitch your product or companies. No one goes to get their verify e book out and order and pay tonight. Be affected person and understand individuals do enterprise with individuals they like and know – so focus extra on attending to know that individual and the product they symbolize

DO – Observe up! It amazes me how many individuals stack their playing cards and put rubber bands round them and that is it. Are you able to bear in mind who you noticed when? Did you name them, write or ship an e mail to keep up a relationship with these individuals?

I consider in case you breathe air you carry a present to lifes’ celebration. Once I stroll in a room I can not wait to unwrap these presents to search out commonalities and THEN do enterprise. Strive it – it makes networking thrilling and FUN!
