Networking as in centers of influence or prospecting more specifically? We’ve been talking about this quite a bit and it’s hard to completely stop business. For me personally, I’m checking in with prospects that I’ve worked with, but didn’t necessarily end up coming with me at the time. So I’ve called and just said I was thinking about them, etc etc. it’s actually gone well and I think of it more as helping than selling. If it was a purely let’s grab coffee and shoot the breeze, I think most would think the timing was inappropriate and you might hurt your image more negatively in the long term.

I agree. This is a hard time for new introductions or aggressive sales conversations, but checking in on existing contacts can show that you value them and strengthen your long-term dialogue.
