Social Networking

Are Social Networking Tools time and energy suckers or do they give you measurable results?

People who use them well swear by them.

There are several types:

Social Groups such as FaceBook and LinkIn

Bogging on WordPress, Blogger etc

Micro Blogging like Twitter

All of these are tools which means you should have a strategy for using them. Otherwise you will find they eat your time and you don’t get any results. Once you know what you want to accomplish you can choose the right mix of tactics and the best ways to use them.

Social sites are for finding people like you and connecting with them.

Blogging is a way to show people you know what you are talking about. Your posts should be about the theme of your blog and they should be relevant, helpful and for the benefit of your readers not you.

Micro blogging should follow the same rules as blogging. Don’t really tell people what you are doing if it’s what you ate for breakfast, but if you are reading a great book, well then share. Here’s a great place to get tips on how to use twitter effectively.

The Three Success Factors

I have worked closely with 100’s of business owners and I have seen too many struggle. I have seen what works and what doesn't.

It takes 3 things to succeed:
1. Hard work - and I know you do that already.
2. Knowledge - domain knowledge: you've got that and continue to learn; and business knowledge: this is where everyone focuses and it's easy to find
3. Mindset - This is the killer app. This is what makes or breaks small business owners.

We work on Mindset here at the Business Owners Success Club: how you think about yourself and your business.

When you focus on a business that gives you what you need to live a Good Life and gives others what they need to solve a problem, everything else falls into place and you have a successful business.

Using that as a framework we work on one aspect of business every month. February is "Your Place in Your Community" month.

In March we will open the doors to our online community. Stay Tuned.
