I do a lot of communicating online through emails, posting blogs, and social media updates. All of these things deserve special consideration. Usually, things go okay, but I have also pulled some bonehead moves. Some things made me cringe as soon as I hit the enter key.
Communicating online is an art form and doing it well requires lots of practice, just like playing the piano or guitar. There are fundamentals and guidelines you need to keep in mind. If you don't practice those fundamentals correctly, your communication will not perform the way you want them to. If a person can misinterpret something - you can be sure they will.
Did you know that people are constantly looking for what you do and how you do it? Potential customers are out there and they want your product or service. They don't know what you know, they don't know what you do, and they just can't find you. If you're not sharing your wisdom knowledge and products online the right people are just not going to find you.
Sharing your content is one of the best ways to get found online. When you share your content on social media, it not only improves your social media marketing efforts, but your SEO as well.
Chico Escuela once said: "Baseball been berry berry good to me!" Well actually it was Garrett Morris on Saturday Night Live. I used to play baseball when I was young and I enjoyed it very much. But, really, I was never going to be a famous baseball star.
I'd like to say, however, that LinkedIn has been very very good to me. I have found customers, old friends, great resources, and I have developed a professional mutual trust and friendship with more people that I could have ever dreamed possible. It is a wonderful tool for connecting with professionals in all types of businesses. I have connected with artists, programmers, directors, presidents, CEO, producers, and all manner of movers and shakers in the business world. I am very happy for that.
Have You Ever Found Yourself In Any Of These Situations?
In order to achieve success, businesses must first establish credibility. Without credibility, it's virtually impossible to build a customer base. This is because customers want to do business with a company that's perceived as reliable and trustworthy.
Well-established businesses gain credibility through testimonials, reviews, and a history of trustworthiness. But how does a new company build credibility? Perhaps even more challenging, how does a start-up company build credibility online? Corporate images are not built overnight, in takes time to grow the roots that build credibility.
