Striking Statistic

According to Webbiquity B2B Marketing Blog: "Americans spent nearly a quarter of their time online on social networking sites and blogs in 2010, up from 15.8 percent just a year earlier—a 43 percent increase. 40 percent of U.S. online time is spent on just three activities: social networking, playing games and emailing."

Timely Tip

 

Since I use Twitter daily, I often get asked if being on a social network is really important for the success of a business.  I know it has helped me find interesting things and people. I am now reading a book that says YES, it is very important especially now when most people go to the web first for everything they need or want.  Why?  Because people are looking to their social networks to give them advice and special offers.  I am not very deep into the book yet, so check the To Be Productive blog (2bproductive.blogspot.com) for a summary later this month after I finish it. 

 

I do agree that having a social web footprint (newly created term by me to encompass more than social networks and social media) is important.  Different media and different networks work depending on the type of business or how it wishes to interact with present and potential customers.  With that in mind, I started a 3-part series on this topic.  Check each of them out using the links below if you have questions on this topic.  If you want more, see right-hand column for an upcoming presentation of this topic too.

Quick Quote

 
“Networking is not about hunting. It is about farming. It’s about cultivating relationships. Don’t engage in ‘premature solicitation’. You’ll be a better networker if you remember that.” – Dr. Ivan Misner, NY bestselling author & founder of BNI
