Using Web 2.0 to Increase Visibility, Market Better and Close More Business!

Being amazing and achieving what you want doesn’t have to be hard; you just have to be smart! I mentioned that social networking has increased my ability to grow my business, and the feedback was—How?

OK: here are my 10 tips:

1– Join sites that interest you, so you will participate, which will also give you a chance to showcase your expertise.
2--When you sign up, make sure you are a REAL person! Don’t be “sxychk2008” or “businessmama.” Use your real name – after all, how can people do business with you if they cannot find you?
3--Actively participate by commenting on discussions and starting your own discussions.
4--Spell check (at least) all your posts! Type your posts in Word, and then copy and paste! Depending on how serious you are, I highly recommend an editor (OK, at least for your blog posts). Linda Jay, my editor, is fast, excellent, and worth the money! See her contact info to the left!
5--RSS your blog to your personal page, and then people can learn more about you. If you cannot do that, at least post the link!
6--Get a quality picture of yourself and use it – it will post everywhere you post! People always tell me they can feel my positive energy from my picture. (AND if you know me personally, not just on the Internet – that IS my personality!) A good picture should showcase the “real you.”
7--Post comments on others’ discussions.
8-- Be careful who you become “friends” with – do your homework first. I had one woman ask me to be her friend, and she turned out to be a card-carrying member of the Vampires Club! NOT the right connection for me!
9--Make sure you set up your settings to get email reminders if people comment or leave messages for you! You do not want to forget, you want to be prompt, and it’s a good way to remember to check out what’s going on!
10-- Show up! Social networks will not help you grow if you do not show up! Plan to be on the site at least three times a week (you have heard you should blog daily to increase Web exposure--well, I am not saying that much, but more than once a week!).

If you are struggling with how to use Web 2.0, and need more depth, join AME-zing Woman – we will coach you through the right sites and what to do!

Networking IN Person and Online
Knowing how to network is incredibly important to your success whether in person on a networking site. When you practice the right tools, you will grow your business. 96% of women are doing it WRONG! Challenge yourself and AME to do it right!

Leadership Development
Leadership is about vision, strategy, influence and ultimately the ability to get people to “BUY IN” to what it is you want to do. Are you leading clients and customers into your business? Learn the secrets to applying this to your business today!

To Staff or Not to Staff, and How to Manage When You Do!
We as women make some common mistakes when we hire: hiring because we want to “help” someone, or hiring because we like them! Learn to make smart hiring decisions AND how to be friendly and still get results!

Building your Memorable 'Elevator Speech"
What do you say when someone asks: “What do you do?” Are you engaging, interesting and leaving them asking you more? Or do their faces draw a blank, and you can SEE they are turned off! Change that forever!

Sales Skills
Let’s talk sales! Understanding the basics makes it easy! As a business woman you need to understand “overcoming objections: “selling value not price”, and the secrets of closing! These fundamentals WILL increase revenue!

Marketing Skills
Marketing: there are 7 levels of successful marketing. Some are more expensive, some less. Some require your time. Understanding what will get you the greatest ROI is key!

Social Networking CAN Grow Your Business!

Do you need more exposure for your business? Do you want ways to connect quickly with many people? Then social networking is for you! Web 2.0 has greatly changed the face of business – it is simply amazing! What you want to realize is that trusted friends refer and do buisness faster than just an advertisement.

Some groups I like:

Wisdom Women was created for women born before 1977. It is a fun abundant place to come and laugh with women! As the group grows, they plan on clubs in cities near you, and travel! That will be fun!

ONE IMPORTANT rule: you must participate! Plan to spend time AT LEAST 3 times a week posting to the site or it will not work! More on networking soon!
