“The best networkers are givers. What the system does is force you to be a giver, and to do so in an extremely consistent way.”
I haven’t tried this networking strategy yet, but it’s so simple and obvious I have no doubt it works.
Here’s how it works: You create a list of the five people most critical to accomplishing your goals and contact them once a week to provide value to them.
Then, do the same on a weekly basis for the next 25 people on your list and on a monthly basis for the next 150 people on your list.
