The Ins and Outs of Virtually Networking – Part 1

Virtual networking

Virtual networking is using social media as a platform for networking. It’s an especially useful tool for introverts: those who are shy and feel uncomfortable at initiating and making the small talk needed in face-to-face networking. Benefits associated with virtual networking are:

  • It’s successful. When done consistently and strategically, virtual networking can be just as successful – if not more successful – than traditional networking.

  • It’s precision targeting. How many of us miss out or overlook potential connects at traditional networking events such as conferences, tradeshows, and the like?

That doesn’t happen when you network virtually.
