Episode # 4: Francis Waller – Gap Management

Part 1 is Test Your List. Your lists of Contacts (not Clients) is a very important asset to be managed. By reviewing a sampling of the contacts you know that you have now, you will discover your strengths and weaknesses. “Many contacts” is not enough: you need “contacts of many types”.

Part 2 is Networking Notes. When you use a simple way to record people’s information after meeting them, you can focus on meeting more people. It will really boost your results when you can reliably write down key facts while the conversations are fresh in your mind.

After you get back to the quiet of your office, move that information into some sort of Contact Management system. Then your Networking time investment will start to pay off as you organize your contacts, to focus on the “right few”. By growing relationships with the right types, your reputation and circle of influence will expand.
