Gas Prices Westvyne MarketingIf you’re someone whose livelihood depends in part on networking to find new clients, you’re probably becoming a little more choosy about how far you’re willing to drive to the next networking event.  I know I am.

I discovered a great way to network with other business professionals over the telephone using a unique service called  In Blitztime, you can join any number of virtual networking events and talk with several people in one-on-one conversations or in groups. While you’re talking to people, you are able to see their profiles and check out their websites, Facebook, Twitter and other social media accounts and any other information they have chosen to include.  The system also allows you to request who you want to talk to ahead of time (as well as any people you might want to avoid).  After the event, you have enough information to connect with your fellow “Blitzers” and do some follow-up. 

If you become a Blitztime member, you can schedule and hold your own events.  Everyone is allowed to attend two free events to check out the service.  After your first two free events, Blitztime charges a modest monthly membership fee.  I don’t know about you, but after gas, parking, a cover charge and something to drink, I often spend more than $20 on one networking event alone. 

If you are looking for a different way to network, I would love to have you join me and other business professionals on May 20, 2011 at 12:00pm CST.  Here is the link to register:
