So how do you build and maintain
connections?
One of the best things you can do is share
information.
• How often do you forward articles
or services you found helpful to
your network?
• How often to you post the link to
your Facebook page allowing all
your friends to benefit?
• Do you post the discussion or
forward the article to your
LinkedIn groups?
• Do you share it with your LinkedIn
connections?
• Do you Tweet and include the link
so all of those following you can
benefit?
• Do you make announcements at
networking meetings about how
you benefited from this article or
service?
• Have you passed along YouTube
videos that you found helpful?
Networking is not about
selling yourself
• Networking isn't, "Hi, what
can you do for me?" but
rather: "Hi. Let's get to
know each other. What
can I do for you?"
Networking is not about

• Networking isn't, "Hi, what

• It's about giving to get,
paying it forward, and
building relationships.

What is the best time to reach out to your
network?
EMAIL
• Alex Moore, CEO of Baydin, an email
management service, suggested that emails
sent from 6 a.m. to 7 a.m. are about three
times more likely to be opened than emails
sent at 4 p.m.
• She found that when she sent mail on Sunday
afternoon, her open rate was as high as 44
percent, while it bottomed out at 35 percent
when she sent it during the workweek.
Twitter
• Fuseworks Studios made an infographic
entitled “Maximizing Your Tweets” based on
data obtained by Buddy Media.
• Twitter engagement is higher between 8 A.M.
and 7 P.M. (turns out fewer people are “on”
Twitter during the middle of the night).
LinkedIn
