How To Network In 60 Seconds Or Less

Running short on time and contacts? Here are a few ways you can reach out and make some new connections in 60 seconds or less! But, remember that in business it is all about building relationships first. Be authentic and genuine and the rewards of that will come back to you many times over.

  • Say hello to someone new in the break room.
  • Wish someone a happy birthday on Facebook.
  • Respond or reach out to someone on Twitter.
  • Compliment someone in the elevator.
  • Snail mail a birthday or thank you card.
  • Send a congratulatory email. 
  • Post a career-related article to your Facebook page. 
  • Drop your business card in a fishbowl. Yes, this does work!
  • Go to a local happy hour. You will always meet someone new there. Rub elbows!
  • Jump on a Twitter chat. Search out hashtags (#) in your niche.
  • Post a notice on a community bulletin board.
  • Publish an article on Medium that can be read in 60 seconds. Yes, this can be done.
  • Like a Facebook page in your niche.
  • Leave your business card with your check - if you first spent time talking with the wait staff.
  • Pay it forward and buy coffee for the person standing in line behind you.
  • Comment on someone else's blog post. 
  • Update your resume online.
  • Say hello to a neighbor. You most likely haven't met all of them.
