Networking Online For Success

Posted by David Chism | Tue, Dec 8, 2009

I have been asked many times if LinkedIn, Face­book and Twit­ter (i.e. Social Media) help busi­ness­es grow. Per­son­al­ly, I think these Social Media sites should be viewed like any oth­er net­work­ing events we do and not a sil­ver bul­let.” In oth­er words, treat Social Media as a way to con­nect with some­one and begin nurturing/​building that rela­tion­ship. Con­nect­ing on Linkedin or Face­book take time just like meet­ing some­one in per­son takes sev­er­al meet­ings. The one thing to remem­ber is to not act des­per­ate. Remem­ber, peo­ple buy from peo­ple they like! If they like you, you’ve made a con­nec­tion! If they real­ly like you, you’ve got a fan for life. To explain the ben­e­fits of net­work­ing online for suc­cess bet­ter, please take a few min­utes to read this great arti­cle I found through LinkedIn: View Blog Arti­cle Here. If you don’t have time for the whole arti­cle, read the last two paragraphs.
