This is a really good video from Derek Halpern of Social Triggers where he talks about his method of making sure he follows up with people after networking events and conferences.

His technique is so simple but I bet most people have never used this. Definitely worth a watch as it's only 5 minutes long!

Tell us what you think of the video.

What techniques do you use to keep in touch with people?

It sounds really simple, but also effective. Making sure you email people you meet is essential - chances are they won't remember you as they'll have met so many people. If they don't reply then it doesn't matter, at least you've tried. If you DON'T email them, there's a ZERO chance of them getting in touch!

It's also brilliant, as he says, to make it sound as though there is something that YOU can do for THEM. People like people who can help them, so it's the perfect thing to do. Sometimes, just starting a conversation can bring about discussions that become incredibly valuable in the future.

If you're in business, particularly when you're the boss, it's completely your responsibility to get the contacts that you need in order to succeed. If you don't do it, nobody is going to do it for you, so bite the bullet and just start to put these steps into place!
