Always be networking: 4 ways to automate your connections
ABF. Always Be Flirting. This is not meant romantically. Relationships should be something you aim to build throughout your entire career.
When the time comes that you’re looking for new opportunities, you won’t be scrambling through your contacts to reach out.
This kind of networking can be so tedious for introverts. However, Zappier can help you automate that!
To start, you’ll click on pre-made workflows and customize them.
Organize your cold networking
What if you had your own CRM for networking? Creating this enables you to work on follow-ups and organizing professional contacts.

Keep your existing network updated
Keep your mentors—and other folks in your professional network—updated on what you've been doing, and offer to help them out as well if they need it. The simplest way to do so is by setting up an automatic workflow to create email drafts on a schedule to send out.
