What To Do Next After You Commit
Set yourself up for success by having the right tools (i.e., apps) in place. The Right Tools help you keep your action plan flowing smoothly over time, even if you are not physically present to put your hands on it every second of every day. One tool that I am using more and more was recommended to me by Coach Tanya’s blog (talked about her in January)
THREE WAYS TO USE EVERNOTE AS YOUR STRATEGIC NETWORKING JOURNAL
This is a cloud-based, thoroughly indexed, socially-savvy app that you can use on your desktop pc or any other device you can think of, just about. Here are three specific ways you can use it to create and improve your strategic networking plan:
- 1. RESEARCH LIBRARY
- ~save every message, article/post, pic, video or audio that is from or relevant to the folks you are called to serve
- 2. FOLLOW-UP JOURNAL
- ~add a new entry for each new connection, then add in a new note to update the entry each time you follow up
- 3. DIGITAL LIBRARY FOR PAPER DOCUMENTS
- ~save pictures of and/or make voice notes about any paper-based correspondence or receipts pertaining to your connections (clients/vendors/prospects)
Sometimes we focus way too much on new information when we really just need to do better with organizing and using the info we already have. Evernote will help you save both time and money in this way. Also, it will boost your clients’ confidence in your expertise, as they see you remembering little important details that other people (your competitors) are not paying attention to. Your strategic plan becomes your system to help you remember more and use what you remember in wiser, more creative ways to be a BIGger blessing.
