What is the best way for people to stay connected with their business contacts?

Tom continues his conversation with Jason Levin discussing the art of making connections. Jason is the author of “Relationships to Infinity: The Art and Science of Keeping in Touch” and founder of the firm Ready, Set, Launch. He is also the programming chair of the National Capital Local Steering Committee for the Legal Marketing Association, which supports marketing and networking between legal professionals.

Jason breaks down the importance of maintaining connections with professional contacts and the obstacles he had to face to make headway in his networking experiences. Jason first realized the importance of making professional connections while pursuing his goal of working an internship in Paris. He explains how he moved past his discomfort of interacting with connected professionals who could help him achieve his goal. Instead, Jason developed a system for tracking his networking efforts to help him make the connections necessary to succeed.

Today he swears by Excel and other tracking systems for managing his interactions and seeing positive results from business relationships.
