Tight and Proper Handshake
Begin your formal self-introduction, i.e. with a firm handshake while making eye contact, smiling, and saying names. This close handshake is an open secret to show the professionalism and credibility of the person being spoken to. In fact, it has often been researched that this close handshake will create a positive reaction between you and your chat partner.
Wear Formal Attire
Although there is a saying don’t judge a book by its cover, but it seems that this saying cannot be used when you are networking. Because, when you first meet people, the appearance must be the number one thing to note. For that, wear neat clothes to give a good impression. Use shirts with neutral colors, trousers or jeans that are not perforated, also shoes that are not dirty.
Bring Your Business Cards
This is also an important thing you bring when you are networking. It is undeniable, business cards make our identity more credible and look professional. Having a business card also gives the impression that you are serious about the business that you are doing. The other person can also get various information about the product, address, telephone number, website, etc. with just one card. So as not to bother, print business cards online that are easy and fast only at Printerous Business. Choose one of the hundreds of templates available, complete the data, wait for print products done, and sent directly to your address.
- Gives Impressive Question
When networking, don’t just be a listener or talk about yourself. Try to communicate by asking questions that show you are interested in what work or business is being done by the person you’re talking to. Dig as much information as possible so that in the future you can create a wide network.
- Follow Up
After chatting, exchanging business cards, information, etc., don’t forget to follow up after the event. Don’t just collect business cards, but try to call or e-mail the other person to talk just for lunch or a coffee together. That way, the relationship doesn’t just end. You may not be able to establish a cooperative relationship at this time, but by maintaining this relationship you might be able to work together in the future or be introduced to friends who can help.
