I have never wanted to get involved in social networking. Opening this social networks journal is my way to get over socializing in a virtual world. I have to start from some point, the one which makes me feel comfortable. Sharing with you each of my steps of this journey will make it more enjoyable and easier for me.
It seems to be one of the most famous words of the 21st century. It means a lot. It is socializing in another way, a new way, today’s way. Something that cannot be avoided anymore. In life in general, but especially if you, like me, are starting your online business.
It’s time to network!
I was supposed to do this a long time ago, but to be honest, I was avoiding it just because I avoid everything that is popular even when is useful. However, as an online entrepreneur, I have to think outside the box. Social networking for an online business is like a cash register for a marketplace. Since it is the key to success, I have to do it 🙂
If this is your first time to visit my site I warmly welcome you to the Wealthy Affiliate review page.
As per my training at the Wealthy Affiliate, I have to activate an account on at least three primary social networks: Facebook, Google+ and Twitter.
For me, Facebook is the only social network I’ve been using actively. For the other ones I might have heard about and have opened accounts for some of them, but haven’t spent any time long enough to get to know them.
Believe it or not, there are over 100 of social networks in the world.
It’s not that all of them will work for my online business, but most of them will. It also depends on what is the topic of your website.
If you write about an online dating, you might want to be a very active member of the social networks for the online dating. That was the first thing I could remember. There are many options. For instance, if you write about art, you want to be a member of the social networks focused on artwork. There are thousands of choices in an online world.
However, there are some global networks which don’t divide people into the groups as per place of birth or the place of living, job, hobby, religion, marital status.
Those networks are the first ones on the list of my social networks journal.
Facebook, Google+, Twitter followed by LinkedIn, Meetup, and some other. I have found a list of 21 most influential social networks and will follow that list.
My plan and a concept of the social networks journal
I have opened the Twitter and Google + account already but didn’t figure out how to use them just yet. I was hoping to find some good tutorials easy to follow. I will try to make your journey easier by sharing my experience. I am looking forward to making training and tutorial for each of the social networks that I figure out how to use.
This page is going to be an experimental page and at the same time a kind invitation for you to join me in creating a place for all the newbies in the online world. All your help and tips will be much appreciated. I am hoping to hear about your experience.
Can’t wait for the day to feel comfortable using all the other networks as I feel using Facebook. That’s why I will start from it!
Whenever I open a new account on some other network, I will briefly describe a process and benefits of being a member of that platform. Let’s see how it goes.
Once again I am inviting you to share your experience in a comment section below. If you have any questions and concerns, please don’t hesitate to ask.
