If you make the habit of trying to connect to at least one person a day you could have generated up to 250 new contacts each year. Sending an email takes no more than five minutes a day and so it will be a valuable investment of your time if you do generate a new connection. Of course you have to accept that not everyone will get back to you, but remember, people are busy and they may not have been suitable. However, this should not dishearten you, plenty of people will get back to you and you’ll be well on your way to building your network base.
