At Tier 1 Event Management, Inc., effective networking is an absolute must for our team members. While some are naturally good at working the room, others need to learn the right strategies first. Fortunately, we have found a number of apps that are making networking easier than ever, especially for people who tend to struggle with it:
• Happening: One of the greatest struggles for networkers is finding the right events to attend. This app aggregates listings of tons of them (currently in Boston, Washington, D.C., Philadelphia, Nashville, and San Francisco). Just enter the type of function you want to attend and the app will help you find the right fit.
• Pozify: At Tier 1 Event Management, Inc., we are often disappointed with the realities of social networking. This app seeks to bring more positive stories to the forefront of your social networks, making the whole experience more pleasant.
• Shapr: This app is the real-life equivalent of suggested friends on social networks. It helps you to find individuals who you can connect with in person. It is similar mechanically to Tinder but with a focus on professional relationships.
• Bubblews: This social networking start-up is focused on sharing tidbits of information, ideas, and content in tiny bubbles. The website even pays users who attract traffic and advertisers. It brings a refreshing spin to traditional social networking.
These applications have helped us at Tier 1 Event Management, Inc. to make the most of our networking activities.
