As you interact with other professionals, you are continuously building your relationships. It is important that you find value with each other. One way to do that is to offer to make introductions.
Listen to the needs of others to help you determine the type of introductions to be made. At the same time, ask people who they want to meet. By doing so, you will show your interest in the other person.
To build long lasting relationship, you should offer to assist others before you ask for something. So, keep an ear out for how you can best help.
By connecting people in your network together, you are able to stay top of mind with people. It is critical that you find ways to provide value to your network.
At the same, only make an introduction if you think it is a good match for both parties. A general good practice is to ask for permission to make an introduction. The last thing that you want to do is make an bad or unwanted introduction.
Be smart and strategic about your introductions. If the matches are successful, then you will not be forgotten. The favor will return to you.
