Meeting new people and building a strong network is one of the best ways to advance your career.
As Rob Cross and Robert J. Thomas write in the Harvard Business Review, “The executives who consistently rank in the top 20% of their companies in both performance and well-being have diverse but select networks—made up of high-quality relationships with people who come from several different spheres and from up and down the corporate hierarchy.”
Networking is a great way to grow your network.
But once you meet people at the event, you still need to keep all the names and contact information straight.
So how can you effectively do that, when you don’t have enough time to input contact details of all the people that you met inside your address book as you arrived home? And more important, how do you ensure that your business card, that you shared with others, is not ending up in the trash?
RoloNext’s entire focus is to eliminate the need for paper business cards. You can create a card for free in the app and customize it on the website. Then share your digital card with others during networking events.
One thing the networking app does well is provide an easy way for attendees to keep all exchanged business cards in digital format so there is no need to manually input contact details of all the people that you met. All the contacts that you have in the app you can also access on the web and easily export it.
The ‘digital backpack’ that attendees take with them after the event, is that all new contacts are in organized digital format that they can easily import into any CRM. Then they can focus on more important tasks, like following up on leads instead of administration of tons of paper cards.
