There is a difference with making connections online and offline. Some prefer one or the other but the most efficient way is to use both hand in hand for easier and sturdier connections.
Nick Rosener from Tech Nick Creative shares his tips on how to be a well rounded networker is to consider both the online and offline when you’re doing your networking. Some people think about making sure they’re meeting people often, some people make sure that they’re connecting to people on LinkedIn often and my biggest tip is to make sure that when you do them together you can turn someone meeting them one time into meeting someone twelve times over the course of a few months.
Don’t just do one or the other, put them together and will find yourself to be a much more effective networker with a broader reach and more connections.
