You already have a Facebook page, right? So what’s the big deal? You got online, got the page set up and connected with your friends and coworkers. And then what? Nothing that’s helping your business, right? The key to successful social media use for business is the same key to it in person. It’s all about who you know and whether they see you as adding value to their business.
Everyone is communicating all the time, all over the place, in a million different ways and social media has ramped that up in a big way. With the splintering of companies all over the country and the world and the rapid change in the way business is done, you need to stay on top of a network of people that’s more than just the folks in your building or on your immediate list. Yes, they’re important. Sometimes very important. But what happens when Joe or Suzanne, your trusted connection at XYZ Company loses their job? Or worse, the company gets sold or closes its doors?
Truth is, the most important thing you can be doing for your business today is building a network online and social media is the way to do that. Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, YouTube, and the many others provide endless opportunities to connect your business, and you, with people you never met or people you’ve forgotten about. You get to establish some recognition for yourself in your field, connect with people easily and for free, build relationships by keeping in touch, stay on top of competition and work to establishing a referral business.
