Your image is your number 1 marketing tool and asset when networking! We can not deny how important it to create a positive first impression. You need to be mindful that it only takes 7 seconds for delegates to make a judgement about you. It is essential to portray a positive image at all times as you never know when you are being watched when networking.
I always remind my clients, that a positive first impression will also demonstrate confidence. Let’s be honest, we are more likely to make a sale with a delegate that portrays confidence especially as “people buy people”. Think about it, when your image looks successful, you will be viewed as being a successful person.
Take a moment to think about, how do you want to be remembered when networking? After exchanging business cards, the last thing you want is new contacts to forget you the next day when they review their business cards.
I would like to share a useful tip with you, wear a splash of colour in your business wear and dare to be different! Think creatively about how you can stand out in the crowd. Being a successful Networking Guru, I am known for wearing colourful dresses and bold accessories. In my early days of networking, I took a risk and it paid off because I wanted to be noticed. Unfortunately networking has two major competitive constraints; one being how many delegates attend and other the limitation of time.
