My top advice to savvy networkers is not only follow up but make your follow up count! A great way to do this is: Networking One on One. After the event is over, reach out to your contact in a timely manner. Create a meaningful message with a call to action. Foster the relationship and request a time to meet up either face to face or by phone. Prepare for the meeting and continue to share resources and knowledge. These actions make good for networking efficiency!
