    Okay this is a short rant.
    A couple days ago I've started a thread asking for a content writer (freelancer).
    And I've received quite some PM's on BHW and Skype messages as well.

    There is one thing I've noticed, and if you were one among these people, then learn from these mistakes! Because these small details cost you a lot of money you've left on the table. And if you don't fix these, you will always be a low-income entrepreneur.

    Say hello, introduce yourself.

    So many times people add me on Skype and say "dude, who are you?" or similar...
    Don't do that! Say something like: " Hello ! My name is Paul, how are you doing today? ".

    And for our asian friends out there, stop saying "sir" so many times. I know you guys are trying to be polite, but it just sounds weird in Europe/USA.

    Be polite, be thankful.
    Always thank the other person for his/her time to chat with you.
    Don't be pushy, don't spam them, don't interrupt them while they are typing. Wait until they're finished, and only then start answering them.

    Don't sell, just talk.
    This is a general one, but I have to tell it.
    Too many people abuse Skype/email and try to sell stuff.
    Why not instead ask how the person is doing, how their business is going, if they are experiencing any problems that you can help them with?

    Stop asking for money, first fix a problem and then your potential client will open up doors, they wouldn't have done otherwise.
    Become their perfect friend, authentically.

    Get to the point, don't "jibber jabber" too much
    Be professional, and just say what the deal is. Talk like men do, calm & mature. Never get angry, try not to get pissed off.

    --
    PS: I'm not perfect either, I have my struggles & problems as well -- don't take this personal, I'm not trying to offend anyone.

    edit, PS: please use your real name or a nickname. But don't call yourself John from USA, while you really live in India/Pakistan. Like what the hell lol. The worst thing you can do is lie to a person.

    It totally depends on what person you are talking to. If it is a investor, surely, don't fuck around and be a dick, but nobody likes a grass ball that can't joke around a little. Networking is so crucial but it doesn't need to be stiff. Sometimes I might take someones profile picture, play with it in Photoshop and send it to the person. Great conversation starter.

    I've gotten a lot of great contacts by just becoming friends with them - not only business-wise, but actually joking around and not being so damn stiff that people think you need to be. Loosen up people!

    I don't want to be around people who can't laugh a little, or just talk about whatever really - it have landed me a great network group (that keeps expanding each and every day) of people that I genuinely consider friends, and my business benefits from them. I guess you could call them "friends with benefits" haha ;)
