10 Tips to Maximize Networking AFTER a Conference

Lo encontre en el blog Learning Optimism, tal vez les sirva, son consejos simples, nada raro.
Espero que los tengan en cuenta, y les sirvan de algo.

No dejen de leer el post entero, como siempre, les dejo un resumen a continuación.

I’ve been to many conferences in my career and have read many articles from “experts” about how to maximize networking at these types of events. Now that the conference is over I realize that something I’ve never read about is maximizing the value of networking AFTER a conference or an event is over. So here are my tips, which I hope can be helpful:
  1. Organize all business cards you collected into two piles: Now and Later.
  2. Make notes on the back of business cards you collected to help you with your follow-up.
  3. Don’t send out any follow-up emails the day after the conference is over.
  4. Personalize every follow-up email you write.
  5. Offer something in your email that is useful for your contact.
  6. Don’t kiss up (too much) in your emails.
  7. When you send follow-up emails, keep them short and include an action step or a question that leads to continued communication.
  8. If you have a blog, write a post about the conference the day of or the day after.
  9. If you choose to blog about the conference, make it useful and interesting to read.
  10. In your blog post include links to any blog posts written by people you met at the conference.
