Be involved on Net. The most efficient way to make new contacts is over Internet. There are thousands of chats, newsgroups and forums out there. Almost certainly there are some on YOUR topic. Get in swim and meet new people.
Develop credibility. Here we go giving before we get again. While in chats and on forums answer EVERY question that you can. Don't answer if you don't know. But if you DO know, make your voice heard often. Be sure and let them know how to reach you and, over time, they will.
Be in for long haul. If you are not building relationships for long haul, people will sense that and back away. Let people know that even though many things may change over years, you won't.
If you begin with these five basics you will start to develop your own network of contacts that, over time, will mean you may NEVER HAVE TO FIND PROSPECTS AGAIN. The math is straightforward. Each contact you develop who shares even one person with you is opening you up to not 1, but 250 other potential prospects.
Remember to be honest and up front about your intentions and YOUR network of contacts will grow up to produce a bumper crop.
