Zvi Band has a typical background for a startup founder? he worked as a software developer, and then Chief Technical Officer for a startup, and of course he spent some time as a software developer intern for the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission.
Well, 2 out of 3 ain’t bad.
Actually, Zvi did spend a stint doing software development for the NRC but he says the main lesson he learned was he didn’t like working in government.?
Today, Zvi is the CEO and co-founder of Contactually, a software platform that helps you to manage and build relationships.
I use Contactually and love it, which is why I asked Zvi to come on the show.
However, I didn’t want this episode to just be a love affair for Contactually, so I think this episode will be really helpful to you, whether you use a CRM program or nothing at all.
He has a ton of great advice in this episode for how you can keep in better touch with people in your network already, and deepen your relationships with people who you meet.
In this interview, we discuss:
- How to get into a habit of managing relationships
- The #1 thing you should do to start building better relationships with people in your network today
- The mistakes people make when ?networking?
- How to use introductions to grow your network
