BNI Podcast Episode 360: Offline & Online Networking

09 Mar
2018

Synopsis

Today’s special guest is Mirna Bard and her topic is aligning online social networking with in-person networking. Here are some things you need to remember about social networking.

  • It’s about people, not about technology. That makes it simple.
  • Social networking will never replace in-person networking, but they work will together. (See episode 103 for more about this.)
  • When you meet someone at an event, invite them to connect on LinkedIn, Facebook, Fast Pitch, or Twitter.
  • When you meet someone online, invite them to meet up in person.
  • The VCP process (visibility, credibility, profitability) still applies in online networking.

Part Two of this interview will bring us rules for building relationships online.

Brought to you by Networking Now.
