“Hey, do you have Bump it on your phone?”
“Yeah! Let me get your number” *Bumps phone*
“Great! I’ll ping you soon”
I’ve been building my brand for many years, but I wanted to remind you Networlding is not just another name for networking. No, I specifically designed my business, Networlding, to be revolutionize the meaning of networking. Old fashioned networking is equivalent to the “bump it” app on our smartphones and getting as many numbers, followers, or friends on our social media platforms. Or even simply exchanging business cards. You might think it is radical to call it old fashioned, seeing as social media is still an exciting trend to last for years to come, but Networlding is a practice all of us should adopt to to actually see results from making connections.
Inquisitive. Real. Curious. Those are some characteristics of a successful Networlder. Asking questions out of genuine interest will attract people, and when you stop thinking about how you can benefit first, that’s when the good stuff happens. It can start with one twitter follower, a few Facebook friends or Tumblr friends. All you have to do is kindle and nurture that relationship as a Networlder and that person could open the gates to a large Networld for you. And of higher quality.
