Myth #5:  LinkedIn is the way to network.

Sure, online networking is a great way to reach out to new contacts and reinforce relationships with old contacts.

But that can’t be all you do!

Couple your online efforts with offline activities for maximum results.

Try these ideas:

  • Introduce yourself at an offline event then follow-up with a quick email
  • Meet your fellow tweeps in real life at a tweet-up
  • After meeting a business leader, like the brand on Facebook

*Even though I love social media, I also love making that face-to-face connection.  Together, they are unstoppable.

So, intentionally coordinate your networking efforts online and off.
