Social Networks…. The real power of the Web…

Social NetworksThe power of the web is its ability to link us together. Does your business network look like this photo or is your your network a mess…….Well, let’s ask the first question…. What heck is a social network? A social network is a cluster of points…people, ideas, thoughts… whatever…. that are related somehow either directly or indirectly….. Bottom line…. a Rotary group is a point in your social network. Your high school friends are another point…… Your church group…… your client list… Go visit Visual Complexity  for a length analysis of networks….

Several years ago a family friend shared she still is in contact with her high school classmates…. Wow.. I thought what discipline to write notes, call or visit someone you haven’t seen in 35 years or more…. As I thought more about it, the power of relationships are in direct proportion to the time and effort you put into keeping in touch….reaching out…. circling back… whatever you want to call it…. making a disciplined effort to link… keeps you connected……

Take a long and continuous look at your linkages…Because if you are not staying in contact with your clients, then someone else is……. it’s all about relationships…. So much more to share…. tomorrow…Terry……

  1. Terry — you are absolutely right. The synergy foudn in any successful sales business lies at the heart of staying in touch, “connected” to those VIPs in your sphere of influence. I like the new site!
