Until a few months back, had you ever imagined networking without pants?
It would have been unthinkable not too long ago, right?
But now… Not so much.
After all, Virtual Networking is definitely a way of the now.
And from trends we are seeing in the business space, it’s not going anywhere soon.
But if you’ve been reluctant to embrace the idea of virtual socialisation, have no fear!
We’ve got you! And we promise to make it easy and painless.
Now, some people think less of virtual networking compared to the traditional ways, but it actually has a major advantage…
Communication is More Convenient
As they say, first impressions matter.
Think about how much time and effort you used to put into your appearance when attending traditional networking events.
Are your shoes clean and shiny?
Are your clothes neatly pressed?
Do your accessories match?
Does your hair look tidy?
Now, imagine paying much less attention to your appearance when talking to other people.
Of course, this doesn’t mean you’d want to jump on a Zoom call straight out of bed!
But with virtual networking, there’s much less emphasis on how you appear to people.
Appearance matters less, so you can really focus on your substance.
And if you’re networking through chats or video calls with your camera switched off, guess what?
Your appearance doesn’t matter at all!
Of course, you do have to put in some effort to be presentable on a video call. An uncluttered background and good lighting can go a long way.
But there’s definitely much less stress when compared to an in-person networking session.
There’s really no reason to miss out on what virtual networking can offer. After all, it offers so many unique opportunities that can’t be found through in-person marketing.
