Smart Social Networking

The stock market saying, “the trend is your friend”, can make you wealthy when investing in stocks and when choosing a home-based business. What does this saying mean? If the stock market is in an uptrend, you should buy stocks, and if the stock market is in a downtrend, you should not buy stocks. In general, it is much more difficult to make money if you invest against the overall trend.

2) For many sectors the initial scores we see are in the 15% range. They are terrible. They stink really, really bad. When our clients hear their employees’ recorded calls for the first time they are usually stunned by how poor they are. Most reps/salespeople/employees are only doing 15% of the things they should be doing on the phone. And, not surprisingly, their sales numbers on the phone reflect that.

Not Updating Your Website on a Regular Basis. Just to clarify – regular does not mean once every 5 years! Content on the web is like produce at the grocery store. Everything has a sell by date on it. Your information will constantly be piled “on top of” by others who are creating newer information. The easiest way to stay current is with a blog hosted on your main website. A What’s New section on your home page is great, and a very good place for specials or coupon (that change on a regular basis!). Updates can be made “off-site” also. A great strategy is to upload new videos to YouTube or publish articles that link to your website. Try to do this once a week or once a month at the very least. Consistency counts!

3) Embrace your Authenticity. You have quality, helpful information to share and only you can share it in your unique way. Be yourself and be happy with who you are in front of other people. People will feel your You can’t be the best at everything and you don’t have to be the best at everything. And not everyone is your ideal reader or audience anyway. And that is totally fine. You are wonderful just as you are today. Be confident in yourself and don’t allow fear to stop you from getting to know more people.

Last but not least is using Social Media for advertising. Social media sites like Twitter, Facebook, Jeff Machin and Myspace do take a lot longer to get leads from. You have to get yourself known first by having a good picture and bio of yourself. You need to be on social sites a lot posting good content and interacting, eventually you will find someone that is interested in your business.

She replies with linkedin profiles a fury-that she just needs a job that there are no jobs where she is that her home was flooded She lives in Nashville and just wants to vent and be upset that she will probably have to go back to school but can’t because she can’t get her transcripts from her old school…etc.

This stuff makes me crazy. The posting is free, F-R-E-E, so why delete it? It’s not doing anything to you, but you delete it in a fit of misguided fury. And you’re still unemployed…good goin’.

I’m not saying social networking takes the place for more personal social engagement. I’m saying on-line social networking is a new facet of our connections to the rest of the world.
