Social networking in our current economic downturn is vital to the success of your company. While the options are nearly endless, think through some specific ways sites like Twitter, LinkedIn or Facebook could benefit your company.
These social media sites allow for easy and powerful networking. Each site has their own way of doing this, allowing the user to get the most out of the site. Facebook encourages a low-pressure social community where ideas and photos can be shared, questions can be answered and conversations can start.
LinkedIn is a site specifically for the professional community, focusing on where you’ve worked, what you’ve done and who you’re connected to in the business community. LinkedIn is a way for you to stay connected with the business information of people you know – to exchange ideas, information and opportunities. It’s also a great way to track down coworkers from previous jobs and stay current with professional contact information.
Twitter is today’s top microblogging tool. By sending a short “tweet” out into cyberspace you can promote new products, talk about upcoming events and let your followers know what your business is doing.
Social networking allows you to build the professional identity that will help your business grow as well as stay current on who your competitors are and what they’re doing. Click here to find us on:
