Why do so many writers avoid networking as a marketing strategy?
Some will tell you that they just can't find the time. Others claim that there are no good networking opportunities where they live. And many will admit that they put it off because they're shy and introverted.
These might be true to a certain extent. But I've found that you can overcome any of these challenges when you follow a simple, proven framework.
Without a framework or roadmap, it's very difficult to navigate the networking waters — especially if networking is something you're afraid to do.
My guest this week is John Corcoran, a writer turned solo attorney who developed a simple framework for networking more effectively. His approached has worked so well that it landed him a staff writer position at the Clinton White House and a speechwriting gig in the California Governor’s office during the Davis Administration.
He attributes these achievements to his methodical yet authentic approach to networking. And in this episode, he details this approach and how you can use it to network with greater confidence.
