    When you’re building business connections, half the battle is making the right connections. You need to meet the right people, and you never know where you’ll find them. South Florida networking events uncomplicate this process. They set up events where you’ll meet hundreds of other professionals in your field and related fields. You won’t always get it right. Sometimes, you’ll meet people who do nothing for you. The more you put yourself out there, the more opportunities you’ll have. Your odds improve significantly. Meet Me There Events provides the opportunities to do more at once.

    Once you get your foot in the door, it’s time to build your personal brand. You’ll miss some opportunities and stumble onto others. If you get more business cards, you’ll keep your options open. Before you get the card, you need to make an impression. Like you, other professionals are getting numerous cards. It’s your job to make yourself stand out. You need to stay at the forefront with people who will help you.

    The first step is identifying what you’re looking for and how you communicate. Do you use a language of logic or ego? Are you confident? What do you bring to the table, and how can you advertise that? Always be authentically you. Just put the best you forward. What else do successful professionals do to build their brand?

           Plan Ahead: Things don’t just happen. Do your background research, and determine who you want to meet. Figure out the impression you want to make. Read up on successful entrepreneurs and what they do. Then identify the things you’re comfortable with doing.

           Don’t Compare Yourself to Others: The only person you need to compare yourself to is yourself. If you’re always comparing yourself to someone else, that standard could rise too. This could leave you struggling to keep up and always missing the bar. When you focus solely on yourself and your own progress, you can identify your wins and build your confidence.

           Break Out of Your Comfort Zone: South Florida networking groups give people more opportunities. One of the most important things to do is break out of your comfort zone. Getting involved in networking groups isn’t always easy. They provide a fantastic way to meet others. They also require you to get out there and be proactive. Attend the events and talk to people. This process gets easier over time. You make the first step.

           Don’t Be Afraid to Negotiate: One of the biggest struggles women run into is a fear of negotiation. They get lower pay and pay more for products because they’re afraid. They might be perceived as too aggressive if they ask for more. No matter where you are in your career, ask for what you’re worth. Don’t be afraid to ask for a little more. The same applies to networking events. Don’t be afraid to talk to people you might normally feel are out of reach.

    If you’re ready to get out and build your brand, stop waiting for the right time or opportunity. Get out there now with networking groups in South Florida. To get involved and explore networking events near you, visit our website.

    “To get a step up in the world, you could use a ladder, or you could use your connections. I prefer the latter.” – Jarod Kintz

    How To Prepare

    • What is your goal? You need to build a network for you; your goal should be to meet as many people as you can. Keep a target of returning with at least three valuable connections that may help you later in your career. Stay focused.
    • Dress properly. Networking events are usually formal. You need to make sure you are professionally dressed to make a solid impression on everyone you meet. Dress comfortable and look confident.
    • Keep your business cards. How do you make people remember you? You make a killer impression, and then hand them your business card. Keep plenty of them; it is a shame to run out of business card in the midst of an event. Make sure you keep them handy. 

    At The Event

    • Make proper introductions. Maintain eye-contact; and always smile while you shake hands with someone you meet at the event. Introduce yourself using both, your first and last name. Listen to the person’s name carefully, and use it during conversation too.
    • Listen, and then speak. Let your counterpart begin; listen to what they have to say. This will help you relax, and make them more interested in what you have to say once they have had their chance to speak.
    • Seem interested. Ask questions about work and professional life; like, what motivates them; how did they choose the industry they work in; what career choices they had to make to reach where they are today. These questions will make you look genuinely interested in the person rather than the opportunities he has to offer.
    • Keep it to the point. Keep your work particulars precise; you do not want to bore your company. Refrain from using industry specific jargon. You can’t build connections unless the other person understands what you’re saying. 
    • Always jot down the important details. It is impossible to remember everything you talk about with different people. Once in a while, find a nice corner and take the time to note down the noteworthy particulars of each meeting for later reference. Talk about mutual topics that you both can relate to.

    What to Do After the Event

    • It is important to follow up. To keep your networking strong, send out personalized emails to each of your new contacts. Express gratitude for the meeting and mention something you discussed with them at the event.

    That’s it for the fundamentals of capitalizing on your New York networking events. If you do not know where to build your network, join us and other professionals like yourself on fun and networking events organized by us. For more information, contact us TODAY
