Whether you’re at a networking event or trying to sell a product to a customer, being able to communicate effectively is a must. Speaking with unfamiliar people seems to come naturally for outgoing extroverts, but introverted people often feel shy and uncomfortable when they’re supposed to “mingle” with others. Quiet people may even miss out on professional opportunities because they don’t know how or when to speak up.
Luckily, author and self-proclaimed introvert Matthew Pollard offers genuine tips that aren’t about forcing quiet people to pretend to be extroverted in order to get ahead. Instead, Pollard draws upon his own professional success to explain how introverted people can excel in their own unique ways.
The Introvert’s Edge to Networking: Work the Room. Leverage Social Media. Develop Powerful Connections
This is Pollard’s highly-anticipated second book, which was just published in March 2021. From August 11-17, you can get the audiobook version for just $2.99 on Chirp, Apple Books, Google Play, and Kobo. If you prefer Audible, the book will be on sale for $2.99 on August 11 only.
In this networking guide for introverts, Pollard debunks the myth that you have to be talkative and outgoing in order to be successful. His book helps you transform the anxiety-inducing notion of networking into a manageable, repeatable system that will allow you to:
- Overcome fear and discomfort when speaking at networking events
- Tap into your natural skills and strengths as an introvert
- Identify and connect with relevant influencers
- Take full advantage of social media tools
- Build an impressive professional network
No matter where you’re at in your career, this book can help you achieve your professional goals while gaining confidence and valuable skills along the way.
If you’re an introvert who’s hesitant about taking on a sales position, this is an absolute must-read. Pollard’s debut bestseller introduced the simple idea that selling, just like any other skill, can be practiced and mastered over time. In other words, it’s entirely possible for introverts to become highly skilled and profitable sales professionals with the right tools.
Pollard emphasizes that, although extroverts may be more comfortable talking to potential customers, introverts can learn how to gain confidence in this area — without having to pretend to be extroverted. Each chapter contains practical and actionable tips that you can start using right away to jumpstart your selling career!
