Summary What we have sought to do in this first chapter is to steer you away from thinking of professional networking as pressing your credentials on an ever-extending number of people. Left unchecked, this kind of activity will achieve little and will only serve to send you crazy – so don’t do it. What matters about networks is not their size, but how you use them: ᔢ How you select the people you are going to network with. ᔢ How you come across to these people. ᔢ How you control the messages you are sending out to them.

Approachability means not putting off the people you want to network with by being stand-offish or difficult to talk to. Networks, remember, thrive on two-way traffic so, when someone rings you to pick your brains or ask a favour, you must be welcoming and helpful to them, at all times. This kind of evenness, however, is not always easy to achieve and one of the big problems we all have today is the sheer pace at which we live our lives. Being short or less helpful than we can be because one of our network contacts happens to catch us at a bad moment transmits an immediate signal which the other person will be quick to pick up.

If you do this, it gives you the further option of using your mailmerge facility to send out mini-mailshots to people on your network. Why should you want to send out mailshots? For a start, you will need to advise everyone if your address changes or if you move companies or if, for any reason, you should get a new telephone number. Occasional mailshots have another function: they act as a reminder to everyone that you are still there, still as approachable and available as ever and still just as keen to network with them.
