How To Increase Your Network Score

When you login to Connect The Dots you’ll see your Network Score. This number might seem like a vanity metric at first, but what it tells you is the likelihood of having a successful outcome. 

If you’ve got a deep network, chances are you’re going to identify someone who can provide insight, influence, or a warm introduction. If you’ve got a shallow network, chances are, you’re going to come up empty. 

So how do you increase your network score? Turns out there are some simple things you can do to amplify your relationship strength dramatically, even if you’re young in your career. 

#1 Connect ALL your email accounts 

This takes minutes to do and it ensures you’ll never loose valuable connections or important context again. Your network grows in the background without you having to do anything. 

#2 Invite your co-workers 

The fastest way to increase your network score is to tap into the relationships of your executives and co-workers. You can send one-off invitations or you could use the Enterprise Connector. By connecting at the Google Apps or Microsoft Workspace level, overnight you'd have every employee in your organization as a connector. People who have experienced it say it’s an explosion in network intelligence! 

#3 Invite your friends and connectors

Who are the people who know you at your core and would be helpful? People who understand what you do and have a vested interest in you succeeding? Who would be a super connector if you could get them on Connect The Dots? In a matter of minutes you could send off a bunch of invites and bump up your network score.

#4 Keep your network current

Once you’ve got your contacts nicely organized in Connect The Dots it’s easy to create lists of people you should reach out to. Sort your strong, familiar, and weak relationships by last activity, and make a point of sending them a note, or giving them a call every once in a while. That way when you’re in a

position where you need to make an ask it feels less transactional, and more opportunistic. 

#5 Setup user tracking 

This is an Enterprise Edition feature that Connect The Dots offers. For SaaS companies it allows you to upload a list of all the people who use your product. When these users move from one company to the next, you’ll be notified. This is gold for Sales; knowing where there are former customers in your target accounts.
