How To Nurture Your Contacts

This is the only way to do it, unless you were born into high-society.

I’ve already gone over ways of finding new friends and meeting new people, but today I want to talk about how to nurture those new connections. 

As you know, your ticket into affluent circles will be through connections, acquaintances, affluent male friends and girlfriends.

These types of relationships need constant nurturing because if you don’t stay in touch, you will become yesterday’s news.

The most successful elegant ladies know how to socialize.

Your socialising has to come across as genuine because you don’t want to seem opportunistic. Here are some key rules for nurturing new contacts:

1. Always exchange numbers!

If you meet a new person who is in the circle you desire to be in, always exchange numbers. Don’t be shy and always take the initiative, it’s fully normal and nobody will think you’re weird. 

If you want to take it to the next level, get your own business card. You don’t need to have a corporate one, just having one with your name, email and telephone number is totally fine. And make it look expensive, as it will give people a good impression of you.

2. Follow up!

After exchanging numbers, always follow up. Never wait more than 1 day to follow up. You don’t need to have a long conversation, unless it happens organically. Simply acknowledge that it was nice meeting them and ask to stay in touch. It’s that easy!

3. Stay in touch!

Nurturing your contacts is all about making sure you’re not forgotten.

After you’ve done your follow up, it’s a good idea to exchange a few lines on a weekly or bi-weekly basis just to touch base. Staying in touch could even result in being invited to new events, gatherings or trips that could benefit your social circle on a bigger level. 

4. Being outgoing has an advantage!

Being a lady who likes to go out helps A LOT with the contacts. Going out and about means you’ll be going to the same places and bumping into the same people.

This is an effective way of nurturing those contacts, as it gives you an opportunity to catch up with new acquaintances and possibly meet more people through them. This approach will ultimately improve your lifestyle. 

The more successful you are at socializing, the more opportunities will come your way.

5. Be your best self!

Be kind, fun and interesting. Be yourself! It’s hard to be successful at networking when you have a bad attitude. It can be tiring, but if you want to nurture your contacts, then it’s simply the game you have to play.
