You go to a seminar or event, and you take what seems to be a million pictures with the speakers and attendees that are there. So what do you do with those pictures? Do you take action and post them on your Facebook profile, with all the people tagged, while you’re still at the seminar? Or do you promise yourself (and others) that you’ll do that as soon as you get home?
What usually happens when choosing the latter situation, is you get home and the pictures don’t even make it off the camera. Or… you download them off your camera, and they still take days, weeks, even months to make it to your Facebook profile. By then, half the people don’t even remember who you are (or you don’t remember who they are).
People love it when others remember their name, and they also love it when the pictures they volunteered their time for are actually posted with their name attached. And if you want to contact them later for help or to joint venture with them… do you think they’d be more willing to say yes if they felt you actually took the time and effort to acknowledge them before? We’re pretty sure they would.
You asked people to have a picture taken with you for a reason… and you’ve made the connection with them. Don’t lose that through procrastination on posting your pictures. In fact, they will be tickled pink if they go back to their room at the seminar and find the picture they took with you a few short hours earlier was already online.
Here’s what someone wrote to us, and a few others, after finding out her picture was posted and tagged when she got home from the seminar…
Your business is about relationships… and you need to be diligent in maintaining those connections you’ve made. Making sure you post and tag your pictures as soon as possible after you’ve taken them is one way of strengthening that connection.
We also understand how much of a challenge it can be to remember who all the people are that you’ve connected with, and to know where to keep in touch with them. We have a system for doing just that, and it works amazingly well.

So when it comes to staying connected and maintaining relationships, one very COOL step is to take action and get those photos posted!
