Online Networking

Navigating a crowded room, scoping out people, striking meaningful conversations and giving out flyers used to characterize physical events before. Now, we have embraced a new chapter where new breakthroughs are getting ready to be discovered.

Online Networking is the process of creating building and nurturing virtual communities and relationships between people online. So everything is now basically shifted from face-to-face to online…from physical to virtual.

Online networking is a practical, inexpensive way to develop and cultivate business relationships online. It gives their members powerful tools for growing their businesses, finding jobs and collaboration among other things. Online networking also creates responsibilities for networkers. None of the obligations that come with traditional, face-to-face networking are eliminated online.

Working Out Loud

Working out loud is an approach or method to building relationships that can help you in some way. It’s a practice that combines conventional wisdom about relationships with modern ways to reach and engage people. When you work out loud, you feel good and empowered at the same time.

It involves collaboration in which employees form a virtual network and are encouraged to talk about their work and publish what they do. The goal is to allow others to communicate with them, respond to their work and learn from them, so that they can subsequently apply this knowledge to their own work.

Working Out Loud is an incredible way to build new relationships that can be valuable in many different ways, such as achieving a new goal, developing a new skill, or exploring a new topic. Although it can be said to have resemblance to traditional networking, rather than relying on new connections, WOL invests in existing relationships by making voluntary contributions. The results of this process will become apparent over time. After a period of time, the provided input creates a sense of trust and connectedness, which increases the chances for sustainable partnerships.

Author and speaker John Stepper explains the WOL approach based on five elements.

  1. Make work visible. The goal is to make work accessible through blog posts or videos so that people can easily search for it.

  2. Lead with generosity. Like all relationships, it is about giving and taking. Therefore make sure you also like other messages and respond to them.

  3. Build a social network. When people in a network discover useful and valuable information, this is a good incentive for building a mutually beneficial relationship.

  4. Make it purposeful. Given the infinite amount of contributing and connecting you can do, you need to make it purposeful in order to be effective

  5. Have a growth mindset. Adopting such a mindset means you’re more likely to try new things and to persist even when someone, for example, doesn’t respond to your contributions as you had hoped.
