How to Grow Your Network in Two Weeks

Meeting people and building your network is easier than you think! First off, design and print at least 500 business cards–it can be simple and nothing fancy. This is your ultimate marketing tool when you contact with other professionals.

Meeting people

You don’t have to go far to start building your network. Give your businesses card to people you meet–at doctor or dentist offices, libraries or the local coffee shop. Remember to say good morning to people and be polite. There are opportunities everywhere around you to build and grow your network.


Join Facebook groups and add people to your network. Open lines of communication by offering to help out–answer questions for example. Always ask if you connect on other social media platforms.


Try to connect with professionals in your area and close urban areas. Offer to answer any of their questions (if they have any) and share useful content. Make it a habit to send out personal connection requests and don’t be scared to ask for referrals.

Two weeks and beyond
