3 Must-Have Assets Required to Successfully Network


Posted on

There’s never a bad time or place to network. From the gym to a local church group—the opportunities are endless. However, to ensure that you get the most out of networking, you must come equipped with the proper tools. These tools will set you apart from the pack and help you connect with the right types of individuals—ultimately taking your business to the next level.

Contact information

You’ve heard it time and time again—you must come prepared with your contact information. Although repetitive, I can’t stress the importance behind this thought. In fact, your contact information is the gateway to building long-standing relationships. Be sure to bring along all business cards and flyers that display your information—phone number, email address, and social media handles. If you’re looking for an item that truly provides value, consider handing out promotional copies of one of our personally branded magazines.

Value proposition

Your value proposition is what makes you unique. It’s advantageous to develop one while you’re building your brand. However, living and breathing it at a networking opportunity has major advantages. For instance, if a local community member is interested in finding a real estate agent, describing your shining achievements and your passion for the industry can set you apart from your competition. Although your value proposition won’t necessarily be printed material, you’ll want to wear it on your sleeve throughout the event.

Snazzy outfit

In the business world, perception is everything. A networking opportunity should be taken just as seriously as a meeting. You wouldn’t attend a meeting in sweatpants and a T-shirt, would you? Well, I sure hope not! That being said, make sure you look the part during an event. Dressing to impress will help people remember you in a positive manner. If they’re able to recall you and associate you with professionalism after the event, there’s a better chance that they’ll get in touch with you.

All in all, networking is timeless. Being prepared with the proper tools and materials during an event will help you feel more confident, helping you make the most out of each opportunity. Happy networking!
