Many people want to grow their professional network but struggle to know where to start. There are some pretty easy steps you can take today, in order to grow your network and connections for the future.
Attend a Networking Event
At the Wealth Investing Network, we host networking events with speakers who talk about many different aspects of wealth creation including property investing, share trading, business and personal development.
Often, when you attend a networking event, you will have the chance to introduce yourself to the rest of the room. This can be a great opportunity to give your elevator pitch and tell everyone why you are at the networking event and what you want to achieve before the event ends.
Attending your first networking event can be daunting, so if you have never been to a networking event before, we have some great top tips for attending your first networking meeting.
Connect on LinkedIn
If you are looking for people with a particular skillset to add to your network, LinkedIn is a great place to start. You can easily search for people by profession and location, so you can find people with the skills you want and that are local to your area.
Once you have found someone who you would like to talk with, send them an invitation to connect along with a message introducing yourself and why you have decided to connect with them through LinkedIn.
Use Social Media to Grow your Network
Social media is another great place to make new contacts. If there is someone you follow on social media and are wanting to connect with them, send them a message and start a conversation. Perhaps, you can even organise an opportunity to meet in person, or online via a Zoom call.
Social media has many ways you can grow your network and we have some great top tips for growing your network with social media.
Ask People in your own Network
If you are after a person with a skill to add to your network, why not get in contact with those people already in your network and see if they can recommend someone to connect with. This is a great way as you already have part of a relationship built with them through having a contact in your own network.
Attending a networking event is a great place to start, so make sure to view our upcoming networking events and build your own network today.
