Networking Do’s and Don’ts

Networking Do’s and Don’ts


  • Have a networking plan in place.  Know what you want to achieve from your networking activities and how you plan to get it.
  • Know your own strengths, talents and resources.  Listen for when a situation may be right.
  • Help others build relationships,  Make only those offers you intend to fulfill,  Relationship marketing only works when you are genuine.
  • Have business cards on you at all times.
  • Develop a system to track you networking activities and the results.
  • Follow up promptly and professionally on the referrals you receive.  Remember to thank the person who referred you.


  • Wait until you need a network to develop one.  It takes time to develop relationships.
  • Give out your business cards indiscriminately.  Ask for a business card from someone you would like to give your business card to.
  • Don’t be afraid to jump in and network!  Networking is a contact sport; it requires your physical presence.
