As we count down with only 50 working days until #SageSummit 2012, we continue our posts around the ideas that we want to share with you as we lead up to the conference, throughout the conference and beyond by continuing to encourage the community of business owners to share ideas with the #blydea hashtag. If you’re not exactly sure how to use a hashtag yet, don’t fret! Click here for information on how to set-up a twitter account and follow our hashtag.
Our idea #50 comes from the fact that now you are more than just the sum of your work, you are now also the sum of who you know and who you are connected to socially. If you aren’t connecting with people socially that you know in the workplace, you are missing out on an opportunity to advance your career and build future opportunities for yourself. Not only that as a company, connecting socially with those you do business with enhances your reach and opens you up to things like referrals, testimonials and candid conversations with customers. All of these are opportunities to shine.
Also, new tools like the Social Selling hit InsideView provide ways for you to take advantage of your company’s collective network though employees and referral customers all to get introductions to the right prospect. An introduction alone makes it so much easier to earn business. Don’t hesitate to start building your network now. We can help. Check out our free webinar on how you can use social selling to your advantage.
