I must admit something. I hate creating graphics. I just do. I can write articles in my sleep (I have actually done it before). I just am not good with graphics. So I went looking for someone to create graphics for me. I went to one of my favorite Facebook groups, Atlanta Women Entrepreneurs, and asked around. Someone (sorry I don’t remember who) recommended Gadsavage to me. His work is awesome! I got a logo done and he did my business cards too. I promise to post the header once I get this work caught up. I just wanted to give Gadsavage a quick shout out for the fabulous work he did.
I started a series about following up with prospects based on the following thread in one of the Facebook groups I belong to:
There was so much information in that thread, that I decided to make a series out of it. So here is another question and answer for you
What is your suggestion for those who express interest, and ask for a card but you have no way to follow-up. Is there a trick to getting there information? I get a lot of those.

Many people hear a speaker say, “Networking is a great way to get new clients.” They rush and join sites such as LinkedIn and twitter and then just sit there. They don’t add any new contacts, they don’t reach out to people from their past, they just sit there. Then after a few weeks they say, “That speaker was a load of crap. Networking doesn’t work.” I’ve got news for you. Networking is an active thing! It only works if you work it regularly. By “work it” I mean you have to be in touch with your network at all times. Let them know what you’re working on in your status updates. Offer to help with what they are working on.
I must apologize for getting off schedule. I haven’t been feeling well the last few days. I’m feeling better now. Here’s an interesting article I found about Networking. I hope you enjoy it.

Networking Do’s and Don’ts
I always enjoy speaking at networking events. I get there an hour early to set up everything for my presentation and then I stand in the back of the room and watch people enter.
