10 Keys for Small Business Success Using Social Networking

1.    Always keep a Daily notebook log of all activities, call backs, to do items, follow ups, and related news and research items.
2.    Sign up on twitter right now!- just write a profile about who you are, your passions, and your experience and you will attract like-minded and highly influential people- it happened to me.
3.    Write down a list of all your passions.
4.    Choose 1 passion & Start a blog NOW talking about your passions, news about your passion, give your feedback, insights, and opinion.  Don’t worry about what other people think, if they don’t like your opinion, then they shouldn’t read your blog.
5.    Technology is your friend- start getting use to IT! (Information Technology)  Research what topic you’re interested in and learn IT!  We are doing business and living our lives in a constant connected digital age.
6.    Create a linked in account and start networking with other professionals.
7.    Set up a Google reader account for all your news and RSS feeds (this is KEY)
8.    Find a friend or follower to be your CONSTANT feedback mechanism (just ask me if you can’t find one- I’ll try to fit you in.
9.    Delegate what you can’t do to TRUSTED followers.  No one knows everything, so ask for help when you need it.  But be ready to give help when called upon. (it’s a two way street)
10.    Balance Work and Life- you only live once so work hard, do something you love (even if you’re not making millions yet like me) and you still feel good about yourself.

    Great read, I am looking into building my clientele for my massage business in Northern California

  3. Straight and to the point. I like how you’ve made it so simple. For anyone focusing on their passions is a key. I have started websites before on things I thought were popular instead of something I loved and I tell you it was really work to stay on top of it.
    Thanks for the article

    Good stuff as usual! I will RT it. Only thing I would add to Point 9 – get your employees involved. Ask them to blog about your products or services and ask them to spread the word on their networks. They will think you’re the coolest boss on the planet.

  5. While not a bad a list several of these items have nothing to do with Social Networking
