Need of Professional Networking
It has been rightly said that “Networking is more about Farming than it is about “hunting”. It’s about cultivating relationship ~Dr. Ivan Misner
And this sounds a perfect quote for me being a professional working with corporates for 10 long years. We all need the right professional networking for numerous buzzing ideologies, for chartering growth plans and even to advance up in specific roles. For these objectives, we often look out for people, that right connection, all over the web, isn’t it? But, try thinking in the past, how many times have we really found those “Right Individuals” who could match the possibilities listed out? I’m sure, the answer would be “very few times” and this is the reason why the real potential of networking had not been explored until..BlueTie came!
But, there is a happy news now, since we already acknowledge that “our network is our net worth”. It’s no longer adding up more and more connections, but it is all about “Engaging qualitatively” with the right person. And BlueTie , a Professional Networking app has tapped the right chord, which had been missing for long.
Let’s meet BlueTie : A professional networking app
Professionalism demands a quick response time, less Time lag, efficient filters and that’s how you meet BlueTie, which involves a quick download of the app, either from Apple Store or Google Playstore followed by really simple and efficient 3 step registration process. I would rather call those as a “Profile building” steps, wherein after entering your basic details as Name, Industry, what you need is, add your forte (your skills) and uncover your networking objectives.
“Having plethora of Objectives like Exchange Ideas, Strategic partnerships, Job/Freelance opportunities, Seek /provide mentorship, seek funding, make an investment, is what is the key here. Your Forte (as SEO content writing / others you get here) and these objectives is what brings you closer to what you need.”
