Using Social Media For Networking, Lead Generation And Job Search
For those of us who write a blog and/or have profiles on Facebook, Twitter, MySpace and Ning groups we often use these site to communicate with friends, coworkers and family but until recently very few thought of them as opportunities to network, for lead generation, find jobs and consulting opportunities.
I will walk through the use of blogs, Facebook, Twitter, MySpace and Ning groups showing ways one can:
- Optimize profiles with keywords, locations, etc
- Use the site to search others
- Join and create groups
- Overtly and covertly say you are networking, looking for customers, jobs or consulting gigs
- Show what you are working on and prove expertise
- Engage in a regional, local and industry conversation
- Connect and network prior to and after industry events
