Networking Questions

24 January 2010 | 1 Comment

The networking expert says that, if you are in business, then you better get good at mastering networking conversations.

Today, we will examine some simple networking questions which you can engage when speaking to someone you have just met, either in a networking environment, or even if you were introduced by a common friend.

These are all open ended questions, which means that these questions require the other person to provide responses that are beyond a ‘yes’, ‘no’, ‘maybe.’ He will need to answer them in some detail.

Then you can learn more about the person.

Here are some basic ones:

How did you get started in the …….. business?
What do you enjoy most about your profession/line of work/business?
What separates you from your competitors? What is the most basic element in your business that separates you from your competitor?
What are the new trends in your industry in the next 2 years?
What has been an effective method in promoting your business?
What one thing would you do with your business if you knew that you could not fail?

Well there you have it.

Gain complete mastery in networking question. Use it like a pro.

A word of advise: a good networker has two ears and one mouth, so it is essential to listen with eye contact when the other person is speaking.
