Jumpstarting Your Networking with a Newsletter



Great minds think alike. Jason Jacobsohn, in his blog Networking Insight, highlights 10 Ideas to Jump Start Your Relationship Building, and number 4 on his list is to start a newsletter!

I agree: start a newsletter. For both Jason and I it was a "transformative experience," and it might lead you in new and different directions, too. It doesn't have to be a fancy newsletter, just an informative and interesting to read one.

Jason also suggests starting a blog. That is also an excellent idea, but it can also be a much larger time commitment than just doing a quick newsletter every few weeks. Be careful.

Thanks for picking up this post. I also agree that starting a blog is definitely a time commitment. I believe that it is worth the time and effort because you can further brand yourself and connect with people who you probably wouldn't have met.
