“While we’re waiting for the world to wake up to the benefits of a more inclusive society, we need to take it upon ourselves to ensure we stay visible, to fight for the things we deserve, and to embrace any chance to pursue our goals. If there’s a lack of opportunities for people like us, I suppose that just means that we’ll have to create them ourselves.
This realisation was the turning point for me. I stopped patiently waiting for things to happen, and instead began figuring out how to use my skills to form meaningful connections online; which eventually bloomed into opportunities that changed my life. And with this guide, I hope to share some insight into how you can do the same.”
How To Network Online is your one-stop guide for forming meaningful connections using technology. Created for those who struggle to leave the house or attend regular networking events, this resource provides an introduction to making an impression and meeting new people… without the need to venture outside of your front door.
Covering both passive and active networking methods, this eBook includes topics ranging from developing your own platform and social media presence, to identifying key contacts and approaching them in a way that will achieve your desired outcomes. Incorporating author Pippa Stacey’s own unique experiences of networking from home whilst managing her long-term condition, How To Network Online encourages readers to make the most of everyday technology and form connections that really could transform lives.

“Pippa’s guide provided me with wonderful insight as to how to reach out to others virtually, how to initiate and form meaningful virtual connections and relationships, and ways to make an impact, with just small changes and adjustments. As someone who has only ever really used social media for “fun,” this guide provided specific (yet not overwhelming) concrete ideas as to how I can use my platforms in a more professional sense. I’m very much looking forward to incorporating some of Pippa’s networking strategies and suggestions moving forward, and am already feeling more inspired and encouraged about finding new (& joyful) opportunities – even from my couch!” – Colleen George
Thank you so much to Holly from Life Of A Blind Girl for testing out this eBook format for screen-readers and assistive tech users. Although all text and copy are being translated as they should be by these devices, it transpires that Canva (the programme I used to create this eBook) doesn’t allow image descriptions to be added for graphics and illustrations. I’m appalled at this, and in lieu of a concrete solution, I’m offering a discount for visually-impaired people and those who use screen-readers, to make up for this frustrating limitation. Please do get in touch so I can send you a code!
