I am helping my friend and colleage Elizabeth Beskin of Fifth Avenue Digital get ready for the annual BizBash Event StyleExpo on Wednesday here in NYC. She is gong to be speaking to a group of event planning professionals about how they can use Social Networking to help build website traffic and credibility with Search Engines.
Here’s what we came up with:
1. Join LinkedIn at www.linkedin.com Why? This business networking site has more than 30 million members and is a great tool for reaching out to colleagues, clients and business associates.
2. Set up your Facebook business page at www.facebook.com/business Why? Your business page helps build connections between your brand and the people you know, as well as the people you want to know.
3. Create a MySpace page at www.myspace.com Why? Gain ties with other business owners and promote your services to prospective customers.
4. Join Twitter at www.twitter.com Why? Communicate and stay connected to colleagues through the exchange of quick, frequent answers to the question “What are you doing?”
