What About Your Mailing List?
Networking is a great way to build connections with other WEBOs, but its not cool to go home from our luncheon and add every single person to your list just because they gave you a business card.
Your email list is different from individual emails you might send to contacts to follow up after our luncheon. Those personal emails are fine. But, please dont add contacts to your marketing email list without explicit written or verbal permission.
To get permission, ask. Be specific. Say something like Id love to stay connected, would it be okay to add you to my list? If they say yes, make a note on their business card to add them to your list when you get home. If they decline, dont be hurt and dont take it personally.
