How Social Are You?

There has never been a better time to be involved with a network marketing based business. Can you imagine how difficult it was to get ahead before the days of the internet and email? It should make you appreciate how nice we have it these days.

The last few years have seen advances in communication tools like we’ve never seen before. If you spend any time at all on line, you’ve heard expressions such as “Social Media”. What we’re talking about are social networks and the potential of these networks is nothing short of astounding for someone involved in an MLM business.

Let’s take a look at a few of them:

Twitter – This is the quick but robust Jack-Rabbit of social media circles. Folks follow one another and build a network of followers. Communication is done through “tweets” – essentially 140 character or less instant messages. It is very easy to build a community and the effects are amazing. You can group with like minded folks and expand in whatever direction you would like. The potential for business growth and exposure is unlimited.

Facebook – If you are not on Facebook, you need to get there and get there today. You have the ability to connect with many people very quickly. You can also start a group, invite your down line to participate and really become a force to be reckoned with.

LinkedIn – A bit more formal arrangement than Facebook, but still effective. The potential is still there to do great things, it’s just a slower build.

The only thing that jumping into these is going to cost you is a little of your time. They are all free to join and with all three you can be up and running in minutes. From there you are only limited by how much work you are willing to put into the media.
