Tip for meeting mass prospects at networking events—

Have you ever met someone at a networking event and then met twenty more people? A week later you don’t know who the heck those people are… and they don’t remember you because they met twenty people too!

Well, I jot a quick note on the back of their card to jog my memory later about the conversation we had. This note also will help the prospect remember you too!

For Example:

You can say something like: “Hi, it’s me, Ingrid, we met a week ago at the benefit for the arts, we talked about your dog bruiser… remember?”

Note taking on the back of the business cards makes it easier to follow up later and makes for better connections.

Well AR Friends, I hope your year ends strong!

Ingrid, what a great idea.  May I steal it?  lol  You are so right, you meet all these people who in turn meet people, and it's hard to remember stuff.

That is a great idea. My business card doesn't have my cell phone number on it anymore. So I give them the card then take it back immediately and write down my PERSONAL cell phone number for them.

Anne, 

That is nice, gives that personal touch to those that you want to have your number, and screens the rest... good idea!
