If you are showing up “on time” for a Networking Event…you are too late.
Thom and I talk about how important networking in person is even when you sell software like we do.
Yes…it is better to do the demonstration via zoom but at some point you need to physically meet your customers.
I find that customers who you never meet in person have an easier time moving on from you.
When you have a physical connection….the relationship means more.
By the way…the same goes if you are an employee and work from home.
Statistically…the people who DO NOT have strong in person relationships with managers and coworkers…are most likely the first to be let go during layoffs.
Thom and I discuss this further.
