Are you “In”?
October 14, 2009
A few random thoughts that came to mind this morning, while meandering about the yard looking for pictures to take…
If you’re building a network via social media, here are some “in” questions to ask yourself:
- Am I being informative?
Am I being insightful?
Am I instigating new ideas?
Am I inspiring others directly to be their best (and being an example)?
Am I being interesting?
Am I encouraging? (OK, that’s an almost in-)
Am I inundating with trivia? (Don’t!)
People have a pretty well-developed instinct for figuring out if we’re just there to sell, or whine, or collect connections to feed our egos. We’ll build a substantial and loyal network when we enter into other people’s worlds and provide them with genuine value. Especially the part about encouraging.
Hmm…on second thought, maybe this just has to do with life, social networking or not!
OK, now back to work…
