WHY & What Contact Information Should I Share in Networking Zoom Chats?

If you are engaging in networking on Zoom, you have the opportunity to share your contact information in the chat. Different groups and events sometimes have specific items they ask for or not, so it’s important to follow their lead. For instance, some ask for only the information you would have on your business card, where others ask for who might be a good referral for you, while some ask for your latest LinkedIn or Facebook post to support. No matter what, you want to optimize this information based upon your business and marketing strategy.

My purpose for engaging in networking is to “Make an Introduction” and “Gain Favorable Attention”, so I “earn” the opportunity for a one-on-one to “Discover Wants & Needs”. Therefore, I want to share information that makes it easy for someone to reach out to me with a “Call to Action” for next steps.

You want to have your information saved on a Word Document so you can easily copy and paste it into
the chat. You might need to have additional information prepared ahead of time for different groups as I
mentioned above.

Here is my basic information and WHY . . .

Full Contact Information. I know due to privacy you may choose to leave some information out, but make sure you include any ways you’d like someone to connect. I choose to include my name, business, role, address, phone, a Call to Action about Maximizing Your 30-Second Commercial, email, website, LinkedIn, Facebook, Alignable, a Call to Action to schedule a one-on-one, a Call to Action to join the Making It HAPPEN! Facebook Group, a Call to Action to subscribe to my newsletter.

This is your opportunity to maximize the real estate within the chat. You can only copy and paste a certain number of characters within the space. The amount below is what fits. Note that I have include my full contact information and multiple Calls to Action based upon someone’s interests and needs. Be sure your links are active and begin with https:// so they are clickable. Know that individuals who join late will not see your contact information, so you may want to wait until 10 minutes into the session to post your information for all to see.
