After you attend an online conference or virtual event, follow up with the people you met there. You can send an email, request a social media connection, or even send a handwritten note via snail mail. Gently remind the person how you met and what you talked about. Perhaps you can suggest a book or article that would be of interest to them, or make an introduction that will help them reach their goals.
