For everyone who attended BlogPaws, I imagine it was a whirlwind of networking, knowledge-filled sessions from great speakes, meeting new friends, reconnecting with old friends and pawtying until all hours! But now you're back home, the luggage is unpacked, the swag is being distributed to your furiends and you have a stack of business cards in your hand. What do you do now?
Here are my best tips for making the most of those connections, keeping in touch and building on the momentum started by your attendance at BlogPaws 2013:
- Follow up. If you received a business card, send an email as a quick way to touch base. Use the subject line to remind them where you met. If you remember what you'd talked about, bring that up in the email. If you have a product or service to sell, don't do that in your initial email... use that first email contact as a way to build the relationship.
