New times new changes.
New networking methods. Growth by sharing is a social medium to be understood and valued.
My message to any new at creating a social media profile is:
Believe in who you are and share through any medium available both online and offline.
Learn new skills. Watch the masters and interact daily with those that wish to share their expertise in an open way. The internet gives you the ability to be online or offline – use it!
An age when business was done organisationally, business to business, in a closed selective and controlling way is coming to an end. Networking, delivering business person to person, in an open, random, and supportive way is here and the early adopters of that thinking are winning out.
Last night after a most wonderful impromptu Sunday, I twittered to a smart lady who achieved over 3,000 contacts by merely ‘Doing an Oliver Twist!’ Using her twitter 140 characters and asking for more. Her tweet went like this: “10, 9, 8, 7 contacts are needed to reach my 3,000 target. Can you help?”
I am getting much better traffic to my website through my weblog, thanks to the help given by Simon Jones Web Wizard currently but still need to turn these ‘hits’ into real customers. Last night with this in mind, I tasked myself, as I always do. I twittered easily to this American lady, as her manner was open and helpful. Her 140 characters said ‘If you need more traffic, more customers I can help?’
Love it! Indeed with the grace and ease she looked at my website, weblog articles and came back with a starter action plan. So go on Just Do it! Ask for help. Ask for more help! Get twittering, blogging, meet ‘face to face’ and grow by sharing.
