The advice that everyone gets when they are looking for a job or wanting to learn more in their industry is to attend networking events. If you are in this situation, it a great idea to attend an event. Now the big question is what happens next?

Well, you probably know by now that there is more to networking than just showing up, distributing business cards and enjoying the activities on hand. The best way to network is to sell “you as a brand.” Go to the event and allow yourself to interact with people; discuss who you are, what you do by focusing on your experience.

The most important thing to remember, however, is that it takes a little preparation and practice. Below are the 9 tips that can help make the event a success.

Set a goal

Before going, ask yourself the specific reason for attending this event. Set a solid, realistic and achievable goal. For instance, say that by the end of the night, your goal was to interact and meet three new individuals. Setting up goals can be beneficial and gives you a purpose for attending.

Dressing the Part

As much as people like ignoring the facts, the reality is that the first impression you make is always important. Do some research and check with the organizer or look online for the dress code. Make sure you pick a professional outfit to look professional. Wear something comfortable and fits you well as this will help you exude the needed confidence.

Take Your Business Cards with You

If you want to ensure that people remember and contact you when they need the service you are providing, hand them your business cards. Always bring a few more cards than you think you’ll need. Make sure they are properly protected in a case to make sure they are not damaged in any way. Think about printing on a thicker card stock to add additional protection such as 16PT, 22PT gloss laminated card or a 32PT thick business card. You can view all the printing options we offer.

Be Effective in Your Introduction

Firm handshake, a smile and an introduction are the things that should define your presence. Take note of the person’s name and use it in conversation. This will help you look more sincere and professional. For trick to help remember names, see “The Five Best Tricks to Remember Names.”

The Principle of Two Ears and One Mouth

They say that we have two ears so we can listen more than we speak. Apply this in your dialogue. Ask the other person a question as opposed to talking about yourself. People get more attentive when information is being demanded from them.

Sincerity and Interest Win

Most people approach the issue of networking from a gaining something perspective. The best way to look sincere is to list a few questions about the person’s background and ask them.

Be Concise

When you get your turn to say what is important to you, state it in two or three sentences. People lose interest very quickly when you keep telling endless tales. Stay focused and to the points.

Take Notes

This is the easiest way to remember important details. It also shows that you take yourself seriously. Not only will it help you remember everything that occurred during the event, but it will be useful when following up.

After the Networking Event,  Follow Up

Look through the business cards you received and make sure you follow up with individuals who you would like to stay in touch with.  Set up a  time to meet for coffee or a quick lunch to discuss more.

Attending a conference can help you take your business to the next level. However, there are a few things that you will have to do in order to prepare for it. Below, we’ve listed a few things to look into as you prepare for your next conference.

Define Your Conference Goals

You should think about what you want to accomplish from attending before going. Business owners often attend to network with their peers, learn new skills, discuss new products or services and possibly look into speaking opportunities. Others may want to get advice from industry experts and leaders.

Business Cards And Other Printed Materials

Conferences continue to be great for networking, so it’s important to have your business cards available. Before heading to a conference, allow yourself to take time and review them. You’ll want to make sure the information is correct.  If you need new cards printed, allow yourself enough time to get more printed. 

Along with business cards, it’s recommended to have additional print materials to hand out. While attending, it’s easy to promote your business with printed materials. At Primo Print, we offer a large selection of products including brochures, sell sheets, notepads and presentation folders that would be beneficial hand  out.

Take The Stress Out Of Traveling

We all know that traveling can sometimes be tedious and stressful. Fortunately, if you prepare for your trip in advance, traveling will be a lot easier. This can be done by booking your trip a few weeks before and it may save you money by booking your hotel and flight early. Additionally, allow yourself plenty of time to get familiar with the location, this can include reviewing the traffic route to and from the conference.  You can find additional travel tip by clicking here

Find Out About The Conference

Before attending, research the conference and the city before committing. Ask yourself; will this conference be beneficial? You can always read the reviews and if possible, try to reach out to someone who that will be attending or has attend in the past.

Look at the schedule of events for each day. Often times, they serve breakfast, lunch and may include a happy hour. 

Take Notes or Record Sessions

Conferences give you the opportunity to learn. Be prepared to take notes or record sessions. If taking notes, at the end of the evening, go through and organize them. You’ll want to make sure they’re easy to read and understand when you return home.

Follow-up

If you received a business card, it’s best to reach out to them following the conference. Take a few minute and send them an email expressing how much you enjoyed meeting them.  It’s always good to follow up as it can lead to a strong business relationship.

There are hundreds of conferences and events happening year-round. Below you’ll find a list of upcoming conferences. Make sure your business cards are printed and ready to hand out!
