Eve of Disruption – Networking
Digital Tools Are Disrupting Relationship Building
When the pandemic hit, I was worried networking would become limited to zoom calls with the same familiar faces. But then I discovered Lunchclub, an AI-powered platform that matched me with fascinating people worldwide for virtual 1:1 meetings. We bonded over shared interests, had meaningful conversations, and helped each other. My world expanded exponentially.
Networking is due for disruption. As social media and remote work reshape human connections, transitioning to digital networking opens new possibilities. This post explores emerging technologies enabling smarter, faster networking and relationship building. The future of networking is now.
In-person events are limited. Digital networking transcends geography, allowing you to build community from anywhere.
Here are some ways to embrace the digital networking revolution:
Use tools like Lunchclub to connect with people globally based on shared interests and warm introductions. Go beyond your existing bubble.
Be active on LinkedIn to keep up with contacts and join groups aligned with your industry and passions. Provide value by sharing insights.
Cultivate your brand on social media by being authentic and approachable. Give people a glimpse into who you are.
Attend virtual conferences and workshops. Use the chat to make new connections and follow up afterwards.
Share knowledge and opportunities without expecting anything in return. Form genuine bonds.
Continue nurturing relationships online. Digital networking can be incredibly sticky.
The possibilities are endless.
