Social Media {Networking}

Hi again~
Hope everyone had a wonderful Labor Day off and we're excited today to share some networking tips for Social Media!

Your Social Media Network is a very important tool that can be used to not only get NEW business and clients but manage and maintain current clients and contacts.
Networking through Social Media sites such as Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter and others can help you in this process daily!

Here are a few tips we found helpful when networking through "Social Media"~

*Start with your own personal network and grow your contacts from it! 
You can communicate with others you are already linked to and find out about networking groups and how to really become active in the community you already belong to.
This will lead to other networking opportunities, take the risk!

*Join FREE online networking groups and become ACTIVE. 
This is so important especially for a new businesses(like us). 
Joining a networking group and interacting with others could bring you not only new clients but friendships and mentors that can offer help and suggestions to you. 

* Don't just limit yourself to ONE networking group. 
Don't be afraid to put yourself out there and make sure your business has a presence you can grow on many Social Media networking sites. 
We have found this very helpful when posting information we think that others might find interesting or want to pass along to their clients.

* It's not ALWAYS about the number!
As a new(er) business we had to really try to grow our Social Media presence and quickly. 
We recently hit 100 "likes" on Facebook and over 100 followers on Twitter and we are continuing to try to grow those numbers daily. 
The important thing to remember though is that you want to be able to manage and communicate with your "followers" and have them interested in what you are posting. 

That's it for today!
