Power of networking for businesses

Power of networking for businesses

There’s great power in networking…from a professional and personal standpoint. In the era of social networking, several of our clients are embarking on this journey and, with a little hand holding, they are quickly becoming believers.

For instance, one client’s fans on Facebook shot up to more than 800 in just over a week due to the viral nature of the joiners. Reminds me of the days when I recognized most of the members on the list.

With many of our clients now embracing social from a business perspective there comes with it an obvious ability to speak directly to your customer…someone interested in your product or service…as well as fueling their desire to see it grow. 

A recent Small Business Blog post summarizes a top Twitter blogger’s remarks during the Search Engine Strategies conference in New York City this week.  Guy Kawasaki puts it quite simply, “Bubble Up” marketing.  It’s worth the read.  

Thanks also to @Rebecca_Rose, here’s a great piece in Newsweek about America’s first viral eatery. Both aptly answer the question, “Yes, there is a place for businesses on Twitter.”

So in an effort to help stoke the fire a bit, the following lists our clients that are new to Facebook and Twitter.  Check it out and see if something strikes you.  If so, you know what to do…and if not, you know what to do too.
