We all know how much COVID has impacted the economy and many businesses. That’s why networking is so important right now! However, networking the old, pre-COVID, word-of-mouth way is not quite an option again yet, so we’ve comprised a list of networking tactics that you can do as you get your business back on its feet:
We know that these tactics will probably push your comfort zones to the max. At first, it is very uncomfortable to talk to people that you don’t know or that you thought you weren’t connected to anymore. There are no promises that they’ll be up for connecting. However, the chances that they are and that you both can benefit each other’s careers and businesses is worth all the risk and discomfort.
The nice thing about all these tactics is that they can all be done virtually, over the phone, or online. You don’t have to network in-person to strengthen your business. Despite all that COVID has done to our world, you can still communicate with others and your business can still make an impact in our communities and the economy.
