Hate networking? Think again. Shapr is forever changing the way we connect professionally.

Gone are the days of awkward networking events and repetitive networking group. This new app is all about connecting you with the right professionals from the convenience of your phone. The Buffalo community loves to connect, so naturally, an app like Shapr fits right in.

It may remind you of Tinder or other dating apps because swiping right is how you connect, but Shapr is strictly professional. Before you start listing all the reasons why you hate networking, maybe give this a try.

 

 

The app is free to use and simple to get started. Once downloaded for iOS or Android, it takes just a few clicks to make sure your profile is ready to go with a bit of info on where you work and who you want to meet.

How Does It Work?

  1. Download Shapr on any iPhone or Android device and join the 1.3 million current users.
  2. Set up a profile. If you have a LinkedIn profile, you can sync up in seconds.
  3. Shapr will ask you to select up to 10 interests to help you match, such as #music or #marketing. You can choose interests more specific to your day job or more relevant to your side hustle. This info will help the app find the right people for your goals..
  4. Start swiping. Swipe left to pass or right to meet. Just like the popular dating apps, swiping is anonymous. The app curates a daily batch of 10-15 professionals you may be interested in meeting for coffee, lunch, or a call.
  5. When the interest to meet is mutual, you can start messaging within the app to take your new professional connection offline.

Meeting IRL is significantly less awkward when you already have common interests, and you know the person’s preferred way to meet up.

Basically, Shapr takes the guesswork out of networking. And it saves everyone a whole lot of time and money. The focus on real connections is what makes Shapr different, too. People on this app want to meet new people and the apps goal is to get you off your phone and starting actual conversation.

The success stories are legit. But really, people are finding career mentors, job opportunities, clients, and industry friends. And you totes can too.

If you are short on time, tired of networking events, or just curious, give Shapr a download. You have nothing to lose, and everything to gain. Hey, who knows a few swipes could mean major career moves for you.

 

What are you waiting for? Download Shapr today and start connecting.
