Small Biz Tip: Networking: Social Media

Tips originally posted on October 30, 2009


The Small Business tips take a little of the shared wisdom from the 140 Characters Conference and will show you how to network with social media.

  1. Social media requires you to be social. Be human and relatable. Talk to me like I'm your sister. It's like an instant state of relaxation.
  2. Try not to over complicate things. Just use common sense in your networking approach. One step back can take you two steps forward in the medium.
  3. You should do dinner and a movie before you ask for a kiss. Basically that means to establish the relationship before you ask them to do something.
  4. Everything isn't always about you. Your network probably has more to offer you than you do to them. Letting them feel that way will help you in the end.

Daily Overview: Social media networking should be common sense: often not about you, social, simple and sweet equaling success!
