What’s the difference between a great idea and a great success story? Networking!
The art of connecting with the right people, strategizing available contacts and building the foundation of new ones forms the crux of networking. The irony today is that everybody is networking yet great ideas are not transforming into success stories as seamlessly as they should.
You might not believe us, but the fact is that there is a huge networking bubble that you might be zorbing inside, unaware the the real Adrenalin rush of networking, the real potential of phenomenal networking lies outside this bubble.
Signs that you are Networking wrong:
- Connecting With the Wrong People
It is very important to establish that mere addition of volumes in your contact list is not called networking. If you are a freelancer or working as an SME and you are considering networking with an HR manager of an MNC, this contact might not help you network as much as the contact of an independent entrepreneur or a start up aspirant can. Remember that in networking, the potential of the other person is not as important as the relevance of the other person in your contacts.
- Forcing a Connection
There is a difference between Networking and forcing a contact. Period! Networking does not include being unprofessional and desperate to connect with someone who might help your prospects. Polite reminders or professionally drafted follow up emails should not be replaced with desperate and repeated phone calls or intruding into someone’s personal space.
- 3. Making it all about you
Networking is not a one way route. Never was. If you are thinking that networking is about manipulating your contacts into helping you gain, then stop right there. Networking I about nurturing potential together and empowering each others potential.
- Telling your story to everybody
Just like how each and every contact might not be relevant for you, in the same way, your introduction might not matter to everyone alike. If you are a freelancing food blogger, telling your story to a world renowned doctor might still be equivalent to braking up the wrong tree. Desperately throwing around your introduction trying to impress everyone around, is not even the N of Networking.
