The Art of Networking
More specifically, the area of actually breaking the ice or the “icebreaker”.
Most of the time, people just over analyze a normal human activity which is networking. So let me give you a little tip about one of the easiest, FEAR FREE ways to break the ice and start a conversation with someone whether it be in person, or over Facebook chat… whatever you are using to network with liked minded people to grow your business!
How to Break The Ice: The Scary “Icebreaker”
The simplest way to start a conversation with someone on the right foot is by simply complimenting them! As you’re going about your everyday life, shopping at Wal-Mart or standing in line at your local coffee shop, when you see someone wearing a nice watch all you have to do is say “Wow man that is a REALLY nice watch you have… what brand is it?”
The person is probably now smiling and eager to answer your question about their watch! I have used this approach countless times and people just love compliments… don’t YOU?
From there you can ask them what they do for a living, where they live, what they do for fun and it won’t be weird or awkward at all!
This is SO much easier then running around trying to prospect all day just so you can pitch people on your business opportunity.
Also remember, instead of pushing to give them YOUR business card, always ask them for THEIR business card when you ask them about what they do for a living.
Show a genuine interest in them and what they do without immediately reaching into your pocket in a race to give them your business card first!
Keep it simple and have FUN!
