I’ve been working on a social media tutorial and a separate multipart Twitter tutorial for my clients and newsletter subscribers for a few weeks now. As part of my research into what others are talking about in the social media space, I came across this great video by Perry Belcher.Â
Some key takeaways from the video:
- Social media is like a big party, if all you do is talk about what you do the whole time, you end up being the biggest asshole at the party! So talk about lots of stuff you’re interested in and you’ll connect with more people.
- Don’t push stuff in people’s face. Meet a lot of people and connect with them as they will in turn know a lot of people and as your network grows these people will potentially refer business to you. It’s not about making money directly it’s about meeting people and building a network. (Couldn’t agree more Perry!)
- Spread other people’s info around (like I am doing with this video) and help other people out by connecting them. Just like you’d do a real world networking event.
If I’ve piqued your interest, have a look at the video below. You’ll learn a lot!
