Conversation Agent - Valeria Maltoni - Ten Ways to Sustain Connections Over Time

« This is Not a Test | Main | Desperately Seeking Social »


I (try) my best to send a short video email 20 - 30 seconds to people I've met at a conference where we might have exchanged ideas, or made plans to connect on a business project in some capacity. I do this because it's personal (more so than a blanket email or a LinkedIn invitation anyway).

From there, I do my best to follow up with those in my network. Granted, I was better at this before. I think I need to freshen up my process and focus again on how I go about connecting and solidifying those relationships.

Great write and Valeria and thanks for the ideas!

time flies, as they say. And if you don't pay attention, weeks and months can go by before you contact someone, even though you may have thought of them. They're not mind readers, you know?

if you don't mind the giving part ;-)
