Welcome To The Buzz!

Social networking is all the buzz right now. People under 30 years old have grown up with it. People over 60 don’t get it. But everyone in between is just getting hip to it. Problem is, most people still haven’t figured out the best way to use it for their own needs.

In the movie “City Slickers”, Curly talks about the “one thing” thing that counts. Billy Crystal’s character comes to learn that it’s different for everybody, and that you have to learn what matters to you.

Well the same is true with social networking. With my clients, some are young and hip and cool and groovy. They get everything electronic, and they’re power users of MySpace, Facebook, and LinkedIn. I’ve also got older clients that can’t stand the buzz about it. They just don’t get it. Then there’s a bunch in between of all levels.

Some people will generate business from social networking. Some will connect with friends. Some will find jobs. Some will boost their websites SEO. And some, just won’t ever get it.

My advice is start slow and build from there. Sign on, enter a profile, and begin getting connected. If you like it, do more. If not, at least you’re in the game.

Coming soon will be more updates and tips from our new Social Marketing training program, that blends proven “old school” networking practices with “new school” social networking tools.

Stay tuned!
