In our previous post on Maximizing the Value of the Seminars You Attend, we talked about some of the benefits of attending seminars and how you can maximize their value. We outlined that “the benefits include the information the speakers present, the people you meet, and the relationships you build while you're at the seminar…”.
We just came back from Mike Klingler's “Marketing Funnel Mastery” event in Las Vegas (extremely valuable event), where we gained a whole lot of new information… along with some very cool new contacts.
Taking at look at this part of the seminar follow-up:
How do we make this happen?
We could become overwhelmed with it all… but why do that? Instead, we take all this new business and social media contact information and organize it into our digital memory (aka “The Brain”).
Yes, we could file away the business cards, or organize the names and contact info into Outlook or another similar program… but how many people actually review the business cards they collect? And where in Outlook can you put people's Facebook, Twitter, or other social media addresses (where they're easy to find)?
When you create valuable relationships with like-minded individuals with whom you can establish win-win ventures, or even a mastermind group, you want to be able to get and stay connected with them. Business is all about relationships… take care to nurture them well. That is why we make sure we can find and stay connected with these people through the information we store in our digital memory.
So you can better understand what we're talking about, we created a dynamic knowledge information mind map showing the connections we made at the Marketing Funnel Mastery event. This is one small portion of our entire digital memory. After all, this is how we keep track of all our connections, information and knowledge.
