3: Follow Up and Follow Through. Chamber membership provides you with a great opportunity to build your business so long as you follow up and follow through.
When you meet new people you must follow up with a card, call or email. Tell them you enjoyed meeting them and look forward to seeing them again. That’s why in your networking plan it is important to limit how many people you will meet.
When you refer someone, follow up and be certain that the referral was valuable for both parties. Make sure you’re referring someone who is following up and that the referrals you are giving are good ones.
When you are referred by someone, make sure to follow through within 24 hours. Give the referral a call and then let the person that referred you know that you have made contact and that you appreciate the referral.
