It seems that just in the last two years, the entire business world took networking to the web. However, there are still pockets of people hanging out that don’t get on the Internet.
They are growing smaller and more far apart, but they are still large enough that it merits keeping privvy with networking skills we had before we got online.
One tactic you can use to network with people who are not web savvy, is to host events.
Hosting events is a wonderful way to build relationships with local business people. Just establish a location and start inviting people. Make sure to come up with a driving reason why they should be at the event.
People won’t come to an event they don’t see any benefit in attending. So be careful to craft a tempting offer and then let the games begin!
