Now that we can't network in person - social media and virtual calls are all we've got.
Here are my tips for turning social media into your own personal, network-building playground...
1. Follow more and connect more. You don't need to meet in person to connect. Just reach out to people you think are interesting.
2. Engage. Engage. Engage. Comment on posts, share your thoughts, start conversations.
3. Take it from comments to conversation. Send that DM! Ask for a call. You don't always need a perfect reason...just ask.
4. Connect the dots. Help you friends and colleagues connect with other people. They'll be grateful and will do the same for you.
Now is the time to build these digital relationships. They mean more than you can possibly know.
