Reaping the Benefits of Social Networking
Social media plays a HUGE role in our businesses. It puts us in touch with people outside of our immediate area or sphere of influence. And, if done correctly, we could reap HUGE benefits of social networking. Continue reading as we share some tips on what has been working for us.

The advantages of social networking allows us to connect with people all over the world right from the palm of our hands. However, how many of you know that there are some positive effects of social networking and some negative effects of social networking.
We found the following to work for us:
- Expand your network – utilize the Suggested Friends option and send those friend requests. However, if there’s someone that you would like to connect with that doesn’t appear on the Suggested Friends list, then “Follow” them. When you “friend” a lot of people, you run the risk of being placed in Facebook jail. Following them will allow their posts to appear in your newsfeed enabling you to engage in their post; hence, they will, in turn, send you a Friend request and the relationship has already been established with that individual.
- Remember “why” you connected with them in the first place – send them a private message informing them why you’ve sent them a Friend Request. Find a commonality that you share and expound on it. Don’t pitch your business opportunity at the first shot. Connect with them on a personal level first. Take the time to allow them to get to know, like and trust you.
- Give them time – if you’ve inboxed them and they haven’t yet responded, give them time. If you get alerts that they have are celebrating a special occasion, i.e., birthday, anniversary, etc, then inbox them or post on their wall a birthday/anniversary wish. People like it when they know they are being thought of.
- If you are blindly messaging people – be sure that you: 1.) write down the names of those that you have sent messages to and 2.) be “engaging” in their posts. Interact with them; don’t just “like” their posts. People like to get feedback. Don’t you?
These are some of the things that we’ve found to be helpful in growing our business. Your social media impact can make or break your business. Make sure you’re using it to your advantage to extend your reach while genuinely connecting with others that you wouldn’t otherwise have the opportunity to meet.
