How to make connections?

It is not a secret for anybody that sometimes good acquaintances can solve a lot - to promote career growth, business development, and high-quality advertising services. It happens that a positive review of a friend is much more important than any marketing moves and a profitable discount system. Talk about how to make connections.

If you purposefully decided to establish contacts with the right people who can help you in your progress, you do not need to come to their office and tell you how good and wonderful you are and how pleasant it is to work with you. Successful people have many talents and not only can "make money", but are also excellent psychologists, so they will not listen to you on the second word of your first sentence.

How to make connections: tips

The best option is to attend open exhibitions, business conferences, seminars, where people with connections will be represented in the largest number.In such an environment, it is customary to meet, exchange business cards, discuss the topic of this event, but no more, therefore, to say: "Maybe I will come in handy someday" should not be. This is inappropriate and may have irreversible consequences.

Think in advance what you will say if you are asked: "What are you doing?". Too lengthy response is annoying, and no one will listen to long rantings. Imagine that this is a presentation on which your entire future career depends.

You shouldn’t talk about which of the important people you are familiar with - such bragging is not welcome. In the process of further communication, it will still gradually become clear, but in a more natural form.

Think and try to apply one of the most effective psychological methods - active listening. A person practically says nothing, but he does not listen with glass eyes and stupidly nodding when necessary, but when not necessary, but actively participates in the process with a natural interest, expressive mimicry, inserted interjections. This will demonstrate to the person your interest in him as an interlocutor, and not as the partner you need.Moreover, when you give a person the opportunity to "speak out", you can thereby help him solve a particular issue. He will remember this and appreciate it in the future.
