In your opinion, what is the key to Live Networking?

The internet made networking that much easier. But there is so much you can do online. How can you translate all your networking efforts done online offline?

Do you guys organize events? Meet for lunch or coffee?

What do you do once you meet someone online?

I have met people from LinkedIn for coffee if there has been a mutual interest. Another great online-offline hybrid networking tool to meet people is Meetup.com. I am the organizer for a few Meetup groups, mostly around entrepreneurship and small business. I recommend using both LinkedIn and Meetup website communities to get the most synergy from online networking and be able to meet the most number of people offline. Remember the key to networking is being able to help others, and both of these websites allow you to do this.

Please feel free to contact me with any additional questions or if I can help in any way.

All the best,
