When I discovered this app, I knew my networking game was about to be seriously stepped up. It’s limited for iOS in the United States, but I can tell you right now you better watch for it to go worldwide because business people NEED this app.
I randomly discovered Refresh app and have been using it frequently since first download. Anything that brings me value in the way that I communicate with people instantly becomes my best friend.
So picture this: you’re on your way to a lunch appointment with someone. Maybe an acquaintance or a colleague that been in your network for some time. You’re meeting up to catch up with him but you want to show that you have been a little bit on the pulse of what’s happening and kick the conversation off in a personal way.
Refresh will ping you with an update about the person you’re heading out to meet according to information shared on their social profiles.
Linkedin helps them define if they just celebrated a work anniversary.
Facebook helps them let you know how long they’ve been married or if their kids just had a birthday party.
Your email reminds you of what you’ve recently been discussing one-on-one in case there is anything new to discuss.
Things like this get pulled together in a report of things you should know about your network member walking into the meeting so you’re armed with ways to talk about them and become the most interesting person in the world in doing so.
The app is a bit limited right now, but trust me, if you can download Refresh you absolutely should. Show off what a badass networker you are and arm yourself with knowledge of your network!
