Strategies More Effective Than Asking Someone to Coffee

If you're hoping to connect with someone new or particularly busy, try moving your requests online. You'll get the same results without all those the back-and-forth "when and where" emails. Try using Twitter to share your work; Use LinkedIn to share your resume or Use Instagram to be in touch. You still can ask to meet people for coffee (I know I do). But if you find that you're having trouble getting a "yes" to your networking request, try one of the suggested strategies.
