Face to face networking is key to building professional relationships within the digital marketplace.
According to Fast Company, 93% of marketers use social media for business only. With more and more companies managing a social media strategy, in-person connection can be left out of the mix.
Networking in the digital age isn’t merely about connecting with customers, clients, or suppliers, it’s about staying connected. Over 51% of Instagram users admit to accessing the platform daily, and 35% say they look at the app several times a day – what if you could tap into that audience for your next business event?
Constantly searching for new, innovative ways to connect with clients in a social media world, companies are quickly learning the power of combining in-person networking events with the fast-rising social media industry. Embracing this new frontier in fun, creative ways, GrubHub launched the first-ever “SnapHunt,” a scavenger hunt completely through Snapchat. Creating a buzz on social media, networking events like this can help to boost the reach of your business.
Constantly finding creative ways to stay connected, Hustle Humble hosts bi-monthly networking events and offers a monthly subscription box with best practices for entrepreneurs. Not only do they encourage traction on social media with the use of a curated hashtag to mark each event, the team includes crucial elements such as speed pitching to different brands which gives real hands-on experience with experts, as well as an innovative spin on the traditional meet and greet.
Committed to crafting monthly content, entrepreneurs are encouraged to share their boxes over several platforms – keeping them involved while active on social media.
