Awhile ago I promised to totally embarrass myself and dance for my Facebook group if we reached 1600 fans. Well, we made it …and then some, in fact we continue to grow everyday!
So here, as promised is your own little piece of blackmail Makes me wonder what I should do for my Boutique Cafe TWITTER followers when we hit 8000!! Thanks everyone for supporting Boutique Cafe on FB and beyond!! XO Daria
I know you’ve been there, the next great networking conference is announcing all of their fantastic speakers, events and mixer opportunities in your niche market. You read the tweets, you see the blog posts, you can’t escape the Facebook Status updates from all the cool kids saying “I’m going!” and you literally wilt in your chair. You KNOW that if only you could attend it would catapult your business into stardom, you’d be rollin’ with the homies baby!
We’ve all been there when the reality sets in that this time (maybe every time) you have to pass on the chance to connect in a real live “face to face” situation with heavy hitters in your industry. It’s crushing, it’s depressing, you wonder if you can ever develop a connection and lasting business relationship using alternative means of networking. Can you get results, win friends and influence people without the actual face to face connect a conference setting provides?
This is the topic we’re tweeting about and discussing in the Boutique Cafe Facebook group this week. Have you had a similar experience please come share it. If you have found other means and methods of alternative networking it’s time to spill the beans and share your secret to networking success. That way the next conference that rolls around that we can’t attend won’t send us into a tailspin of chocolate eating and deep sobs. – Daria
