John Lindsay Location based social presence, unified messages - new solutions to build & maintain networks
Since professional on-line networks began to grow over five years ago many new solutions have emerged to enhance the quality of the networking experience. As people become more comfortable with networking as a part of normal business and social life, the boundaries between personal and business life, between time and space begin to blur.
The desire to access information, to communicate, to interact instantly has defined a demand for network access from mobile handsets as an addition to PC access. It is a popular trend to join multiple social networks and niche interest groups. Subscribing to numerous forums and RSS feeds is common practice.
All of these trends has created a grown need for a singe unified way of accessing and managing a socially connected life that includes.
- Unified messaging, SMS, IM, e-mail making communication convenient and instant. Can you imagine writing your Twitter up-dates from your phone with the option to "location stamp" where you are?
- Location based presence enabling you to meet contacts you want to meet more often, more spontaneously
- Messaging presence in ways that enables people to reach you via the channel you are accessible to in the moment
These needs have given emergence to a new client-based service called Belysio designed to unify a socially networked life. As a veteran networker who has felt these needs, I am using it and I have decided to support Belysio by sharing the application with colleagues.
What I like about Belysio?:
- Delivers a Blackberry e-mail service without the monthly fee
- All messages from any channel (IM, SMS, e-mail) appear under my contacts names rather than by date
- Able to see where I am even without GPS in my phone, and where my friends are
- Keeps my personal communications off the corporate network which is usually monitored by the company (especially important when I work on-site at clients)
- Able to respond to urgent messages instantly
- Instantly share photos with friends and/or business colleagues when on a trip or business event
- When I travel to interesting countries my family can follow my journey with me on their phone or PC by seeing where on the map I am at any time, which can be entertaining.
.... AND it is free.
Belysio is currently in Beta mode and it is available without cost. We are looking for beta testers, so if you would like to volunteer to give your feedback, please download the application here:

John Lindsay Tips from Bart Froyen and Jan Vermeiren
The belgian economic newspaper Financieel Econmische Tijd (FET) published a practical guideline for networking at
You can find more information about the goal of networking, the differences between networking and sales, and the networking coach Jan Vermeiren explains the 14 tips below when you visit a networking event, like the OpenBC off-line events:
14 practical tips for networking events (dutch):
1. Vergeet je business cards niet.
2. Bereid je Elevator Story voor (30 seconden verhaal).
3. Give to Receive. Geef eerst zonder iets terug te verwachten.
4. Geef je volledige aandacht aan je gesprekspartner.
5. Luister meer dan dat je zelf praat.
6. Zoek naar het gemeenschappelijke. Tip: breng naam, woonplaats en beroep ter sprake.
7. Zoek hoe je je gesprekspartner(s) kan helpen.
8. Wees bewust van je body language: glimlach, houd oogcontact, wees ontspannen,...
9. Blijf niet de hele avond bij dezelfde mensen staan.
10. Introduceer mensen aan elkaar.
11. Onthoud details over de mensen die je hebt ontmoet. Schrijf ze op.
12. Wissel business cards uit als je iets voor elkaar kan betekenen, niet om zoveel mogelijk business cards te verzamelen en uit te delen
13. Netwerken is NIET verkopen. Het doel van netwerken is contacten leggen en onderhouden. Verkopen kan een gevolg zijn.
14. Volg de gelegde contacten op een respectvolle manier op.
