How to Network Effectively

By John Jantsch

Marketing Podcast with Dave Delaney

Networking has always been a powerful way to generate leads.

In the same breath, it’s often seen as something to dread on both the hunting and being hunted fronts.

People are very good at networking don’t even seem like they are doing it, they’re simply always connecting people and that’s the key.

My guest for this week’s episode of the Duct Tape Marketing Podcast is Dave Delaney. Delaney is the founder of Networking for Nice People and Futureforth. He is a consultant and speaker, as well as the author of New Business Networking. He and I discuss tips and techniques to grow and nurture your professional networks.

Delaney is best recognized for his work in the digital marketing, social media strategy, and business networking spaces. He has been featured in Billboard Magazine as a digital marketing expert to follow on Twitter, and in 2015, Forbes featured him as a professional networking expert to watch. Delaney has also appeared in articles in USA Today, BBC, Entrepreneur, Mashable, and Venture Beat.
