Tips To Improve Your Networking Skills

Networking is all about interacting with people to exchange information
and develop professional or social contacts. Clearly, it is everything
in the business world. From gaining job opportunities to bringing in
business for your company, networking is the key to success. 

Jumia Travel shares tips for networking like a pro.

Have your business cards with you all the time
You do not know whom you might meet on your itinerary, it is therefore
important for you to have your business cards with you all the time. You
never know when you’re going to need your business cards.
Brag about your accomplishments
There’s absolutely nothing wrong with bragging about your
accomplishments or your company to get people interested. However, do
not overdo it so that you won’t appear arrogant.
Use social media
You should be on all of the major social media platforms, and you should
use them often. Network with everyone in your industry that you can,
and post frequently so that you stay on everyone’s minds.
Network with everyone
There is no need to discriminate when you network. So, endeavour to
network with everyone and do not forget to be friendly.  This will make
everyone remember for good reasons.
Attend Events
You can’t network if you’re stuck in the house or the office. Attend industry and community events so that you can meet people.
Make plans
When you hand over your business card, ensure that it results in
something concrete. Tell the person to call you on a particular date or
you can tell them to expect your call. And ensure you call.
