Volunteering as a Networking Tool

Volunteering

Last week, a daily email subscriber and friend of mine, Monique Nelson, sent a message with a HUGE and TIMELY tip for a magnificent way to connect with speakers and influencers at conferences.

She writes:

I’m in post-conference follow up mode right now! Reading this email got me to wondering…as the conference QUEEN, have you ever volunteered at an event? If not, I suggest you give it a try at least once. It will be an entirely NEW experience for you.”

She then followed with a copy of a post she made about her experience in the green room at Social Media Camp…meaning her job was to socialize with the speakers.

Just a few of the perks of the job: connecting with 17 of the 50 influencers and speakers in 1:1 conversation, influencers asking her for advice and selfies, attending the conference for free and receiving a huge wealth of connection in return.

If you ever feel fear about going to a conference alone, volunteering truly is a perfect remedy. Yes, you have to work…and sometimes hard…and you don’t always get to listen to the conference (you sometimes are assigned to jobs outside the main room).

You do have a job and a purpose, and because you’re wearing the conference shirt, people come up to you to talk…so no need to work your way into conversations or stand around looking lost (often a treacherous nightmare for introverts).

And once you meet all those influencers and speakers and high quality prospects?

It’s up to you to follow through.

I just closed over $8,000 of new business last week from 2 new clients…one I met at a conference in December. One through a connection I met at a conference in April.

All while traveling to meet with two new potential business partners in another venture (I also met them at a conference).

I know of which I speak…and I’d love to show you precisely how I turn a chance meeting or a lunch or a late night conversation at an event into cold, hard cash in my account.

P.S.

If you met your ideal perfect client tomorrow at a random party, coffee shop, or event….wouldn’t you want to know exactly how to follow up and close the deal without sounding desperate or salesy or awkwardly aggressive?

If yes..my DEEP DIVE INTO FOLLOW-UP is the best $47 you will ever spend.
