In some cases, sales can be made in a short time, but usually requires more extensive than the minutes of a round process.

  • Taking notes during interviews where not only information that may be useful (name of your partner, business type, an area of operation, history, etc.) but also the personal impressions of the meetings is collected. As many meetings later can be difficult to remember details about the company or the person with whom he spoke. If you agree to submit budgets, extra material samples or presentation, make sure to leave it registered to fulfill it then.

  • After each meeting, take a picture with whom you kept the interview is a good excuse to then send, and resume contact after the round and is also useful to help them remember your face

  • At the end of the meeting rooms, it is advisable to take a few minutes to take stock and identify with whom it is worth continuing the business relationship. If you have already closed business, great! But you will probably have to move forward with the “networking” through calls, emails once the event is over.
