How to network naturally and efficiently?

 

Have we been able to convince you that networking is important? If the answer is yes, you must be thinking about what to do to achieve this goal and exchange experiences with more professionals. Well, we’ve separated some tips:

Be useful

Helping people is the best way to start. Genuinely helping is a way to reinforce your interest in strengthening your professional relationship. See in your contact list who you can help, without wanting anything in return. Likely, this person will never forget you.

Search for people with common interests

Identify in your network of contacts — friends, family, acquaintances, co-workers — people you have an affinity with. Think those lasting relationships are those that “are on the same wavelength.” Having the same interests is a great way to stay up-to-date in your network, but also to be a part of it.

Develop your communication

You can’t create an efficient network if you don’t know how to dialogue with other people, right? Skill in writing, as well as speaking, is essential in any professional relationship. Since with it, you can express yourself clearly and objectively.

Efficient communication avoids noise and misunderstandings. Especially on the internet, where there is no way to know what tone people are using, which makes it necessary to pay extra attention to these events and consequently avoid the risk of sounding disrespectful or rude.

Use social media to your advantage

Are you the type of person who spends hours and hours on social media scrolling through the feed? Well, know that this time can be better used to ensure your professional success.

With LinkedIn, for example, you can publish about your career, share relevant news in the area, learn from your contacts’ experiences and interact with them. Just don’t forget to prioritize respect and ethics, even in the face of disagreements.

Now that you know what networking is and what the means to achieve an efficient network of contacts are, it’s time to put it into practice! The sooner you start the habit, the more fruit you can reap in the future.
