Think Ink

Today’s networking tip is short and simple; Think Ink

When you’re leaving your car or office to head to a networking event you always make sure you have business cards (right?!) well, I also want you to make sure you have a pen. May sounds simple, but let me tell you why you want to “Think Ink” before heading to that event.

  1. Someone is always looking for a pen. Be the one to “come to the rescue”… even better if you can hand them a pen with your name on it šŸ˜‰
  2. Write on the back of your business cards when you hand them to people; put a little reminder of why they need to follow up with you
  3. Write on the back of their business cards (later, when you go back to your car); write a note so you specifically remember them
    1. Red hair
    2. Kid plays soccer
    3. Heading on vacation soon
    4. Wants to know more about specific product
    5. I also always make a little note of WHERE I met them… for reference later if needed

So, next time you’re heading out the door…Think Ink

Happy Networking!
