There's no shortage of 2022 networking events. Professional networking is a valuable business practice that can help you grow your career and your company.That is to say that in-person networking counts for most of the well-knownnetworking benefits. Meanwhile there are also plenty of virtual networking events which are worth attending. On the other hand, there are some that are not worth it.

Equally important is knowing which type of networking you enjoy. For instance, some people prefer in-person, others virtual. Both are equally important. But which "style" you prefer depends on many things. For example, maybe you live and work remotely. However, there's no point in beating yourself up about not being able to attend events happening in LA or NY.

But remember, simply focus on what's within your control. In this case, that means going to virtual events and getting as much value from them as you can.

2022 Networking Events | Conclusion

In conclusion, networking is an essential practice for sales and marketing professionals. Having a digital business card you can easily exchange with new acquaintances and future partners is an essential part of effective networking. For example, a digital business card will enable you to quickly exchange info and to follow up. However, the rest is up to you. Above all, that means you must find ways to contribute value to all new relationships. For instance, don't just talk about your credentials. Listen to what the person you're talking to is saying and, if you know something - say something!

However, on the other hand you'll also want to consider that you don't want to give everything away. For instance, maybe tell the person you're talking too about a particular marketing skill you have, but don't give the exact ingredients. Firstly, Give an idea, just a bit of useful information. Secondly, you let them know that there's more information to come if they connect with you. Finally, you do good follow ups and make sure to attend as many upcoming networking events as possible!
