5 Ways to Make the Most of Out of Social Networking

  1. Follow GDI on Facebook, Twitter, Google+, LinkedIn and Pinterest. We have profiles on all the big social sites and are always happy to chat with you, answer your questions and share news and advice.
  2. Decide which sites work for you and sign up. There’s a new social network popping up every single day, but that doesn’t mean you have to join. Make sure you’re on the “big” ones like the sites listed above and then decide if you’d like to join any other. Social networks can be very niche oriented and specific to interests, so join the ones you like and leave the rest behind.
  3. Follow and interact with thought leaders, industry leaders and successful networkers. Take the time to do searches on social networks to find out who is offering great content and is interacting with others. These are the people you stand to gain something from by tweeting and connecting with them.
  4. Use your links wisely. Include links to your website and GDI opportunity in your profiles and share them in posts. Be sure NOT to link blast, spam or just throw your link into any post or comment. Be sure to have thoughtful comments and posts and relevant links, this will drive traffic to your site and keep you out of trouble.
  5. Create content that is meant to be shared. One of the main perks of social media sites is how quickly and easily tweets, posts, or videos can go viral. For something to get shared again and again, it must be great content. Take the time to write smart posts, great videos and educational tweets. Once you have something you want to share, do so and ask your followers to share as well. Just asking can go a long way in social media.
