You probably already know how important it is to network. Meeting new people in and related to the language sector can help you gain new clients and spread the word about your services. However, nothing is going to come from these acquaintances if you never follow up with them. Make sure you keep an organized database with the people you have met, when you met them, and where. That way you can efficiently shoot them an email just to let them know that you remember them and as a way to say, “Hey, this is my business, and I’m right here!” As important as this is, it is something that can be easily overlooked because of how busy you might be with other business tasks. Don’t put this off, as this is a habit that makes future business opportunities available—and that can be as important as getting your present work completed.
