What are your networking goals for 2009?

I got a little behind on my blogging this week so I decided to combine blog posts. I’m combining the networking and goal setting post into one post this week, so here goes.

Do you have any networking goals set for this year? If you don’t why not? You won’t know if your social networking is succeeding if you don’t have any way to measure what you’re doing. If you don’t have any specific goals related to networking for 2009 set some now. Also, don’t wait until the end of the year to evaluate where you are with your networking. Ideally you should evaluate your progress at least every 3 months. This will give you time to adjust things that aren’t working for you.

Be sure the goals you set are something more specific than, “I want to network more this year.” Say something like I want to interact with 1 new person a week or something like that.

So what are you waiting for?
Stop reading this blog post (unless you want to comment, of course) and set some networking goals for this year.
