Use Business Cards After An Event To Build Your Network

December 6, 2018 · Print This Article

Did you know that you could use the business cards you collect during an event to build your network? After the event, you can easily reach out to those people you consider to be potential business contacts. Instead of leaving all the other business cards in your car or stuffing them into a desk drawer, use this as a golden opportunity to start building your network. Here are some things you can do to help you make the most of this opportunity:

  • Do A Google Search

A business card doesn’t really give you a lot of information. You may be surprised to discover that the person who came across as “average” is actually a well-respected person in the industry. Do a quick Google search to find out what’s being written about the person before you decide to discard the business card.

  • Search For Their Profile On LinkedIn

LinkedIn is a great place to do a bit of research on a person. Here you can get a neat overview of the following:

  • Someone’s work history and experience,
  • Where they studied,
  • Who their contacts in the industry are, and
  • What type of skills they are endorsed for by their peers.
  • Store Their Info In A Digital Archive And Reach Out

It’s tough to keep track of names and contacts. So, make sure you are capturing the information digitally. Also, be sure to reach out via email if it’s someone that you want to connect with in the future.
