Networking Event Tip #1 - Show Up (Repeat Often)

This post is one in a series on how to make the most of in-person networking events. If you're going to go (and I suggest you do if your business benefits from relationships), you might as have the most fun possible and give and receive the greatest benefits from the occasion.

Networking Event Tip #1 - Show Up (Repeat Often)

These events can be great business builders but you have to show up. But you can't go just once, go home, wait a week, and then say, "Well, THAT doesn't work!" and never go again. Think about it. Networking events can refresh and solidify existing relationships and be a chance to meet new people. If you only attend once, don't expect much - except maybe some great appetizers.

Speaking of which, da-dum, tonight's hottest networking event will be the Wilmington Downtowners Meet & Mingle at Front Street Brewery at 9 Front Street from 5-6:30PM.

This event, organized for people who live, work, and do business in Downtown Wilmington, showcases 2 or 3 local companies or organizations each month and overlaps the Brewery's free beer tasting at 6PM. See you there!
