So I went to a music conference... now what?

If you were like many of us who attended SXSW this past weekend, you probably met a bunch of cool people. So now what? Well I would first go through all your new contacts and start by sending an email to each person you met. Let them know it was a joy meeting them in Austin and let this be a start to a great professional relationship. This business is all about networking and making contacts. Don't blow someone off because you think they can't help you. As my friend Sean Agnew says, "you don't know who you don't know."

Be sure to follow-up with all your new friends this week whether it's an email or a personal, handwritten note.
