a tool to take your on-line networking on LinkedIn to face to face meetings, number 32
LunchMeet is your new power tool for professional networking!
The developers say it was inspired by the best-selling book “Never Eat Alone” and built using the LinkedInTM API, LunchMeet allows for face-to-face networking wherever you are, and have time to meet.
I cant use it yet as its still only an Apple App, but they promise that they are working on an Android version.
This is how it works:
- Sign-in with your LinkedInTM account (necessary)
- Let the app know when you will be available to meet and where
- Search for other professionals in your area who are also available within the same timeslot
- Invite them to a lunchmeet!
I think this is a great tool, especially for sections of your followers who are not great inter-actors on line, but would be open to lunch. Use it and update us on the Lunch dates you have, really keen to hear your experiences.
