How to Build a Networking Strategy, On-Air Coaching with Vern Schellenger

2 - brand messaging & positioning Oct 13, 2022

Want to know what it looks like to take a strategic approach to networking? I for sure do.

Tune into this special interview where I'm in the hot seat! I asked Contacts Count President and Networking Guru Vern Schellenger to do an on-air coaching session with me to help me craft my own personal and business networking strategy.

I recently moved to Colorado from Orlando, where I lived for 31 years. So, I need to build a new network. I can build my new network haphazardly, as I'm used to, or I can get strategic like my client Vern suggests, saving me time and making the whole process more enjoyable.

Which is what we all want from your networking, right? Who has extra time going to endless networking events or emails that yield lukewarm responses like "Ummm, sounds interesting, good luck with that."

In this episode, you'll hear:

  • The four networks we all have and the ones we undervalue.
  • How finding like-minded friends in a new city can start with strategic networking.
  • Vern's coaching approach to strategic networking.  

Be a fly on the wall as Vern coaches me on how to network in this on-air coaching session.

Next Steps:

  1. If you want a more strategic approach to networking, check out Vern's website at www.contactscount.com. And while you're there, join my team and me in celebrating this website's official launch. We have worked hard to help Vern pinpoint precisely what makes Contacts Count unique and one-of-a-kind, create messages and copy that express that unique value, and then surround those words with powerful images and a fun and engaging custom design. 
  2. If you want an online home that expresses the essence of who you are and your unique mission, my team and I would love to help you. Book a call with me at www.betsyjordyn.com/schedule, and let's chat about your project.
