Tips for Networking with a Smartphone
Networking is such a crucial part of business, and these tips for networking with a smartphone can come in handy. We have all misplaced a business card or two, forgotten a conversation we had with a new business contact or have wanted to make connections with professionals when on a business trip. Thankfully there are apps for these kinds of situations; our tips can help you understand how to use them.
One of our first tips is to download WorldCard Mobile. This top-of-the-line, highly rated and recommended app helps professionals manage business cards. Now you will never lose a business card again. All you have to do is scan in a business card to the app via your camera and voila – all the information is inputted into your smartphone without any manual work. The app costs around seven dollars and can be used on either Androids or iPhones.
Out of the many tips that we have for apps that aid in networking, we highly suggest that you add an app like Contacts Journal. This iPhone app is everything a professional could need when it comes to keeping track of business relationships. It allows you to store information about your conversation topics and when you last spoke. It also allows you to add a new contact to your address book (complete with maps on how to get to their office) and lets you to schedule follow-up meetings or conversations that help keep the new relationships going strong. The app is about 10 dollars.
Another one of our tips is for business professionals who are traveling: take advantage of Here On Biz. Although it is only for iPhones, this app provides professionals with an opportunity to meet up with one another when on a business trip. The program connects people using LinkedIn. Professionals with profiles on the social networking site and who are using Here On Biz can meet up and come in contact with one another in real time. The app is free.
