Kevin Willett says that doing your homework before and event, can really make you stand out.
It amazes me how few people take the time to research event attendees before going to a networking event. This one simple tip can greatly improve your results.
A few weeks ago I went to a networking event at a school and each one of the employees had taken the time to research me. They asked me about my networking groups, my book, my radio and TV show. It was very impressive and made me feel special.
I have a friend who calls me before every networking event he attends and we discuss each attendee and the possibility of them doing business together. When he arrives at the event, I introduce him to the people that we decided on who may be a good fit for him. He takes the time to review their social media accounts and website before he attends so that he can comment on their business and experience. Because so few people do this, you will really stand out at the event.
Wouldn’t you prefer someone walk up to you at an event and address you by your name and comment on your business and achievements? I think we all would, so take the time to be that person.
