In-person networking is simply one of the best activities you can engage in for your career or your business. It can be a productive activity when done well. Anyone who thinks they can sit behind their computer, holed away at home, relying 100% on social media for meeting people and developing key relationships is fooling themselves. This approach to networking will not be very effective if you really want to accomplish something.
In fact, the most effective networking approach today is twofold: one part online, and one part old-fashioned, face-to-face, in-person networking. They are two sides of the same coin. A good networking plan does not rely too much on either online or offline networking, but does include aspects of both. Get good a networking and you will get good at accomplishing things!
