Have you ever want to connect with someone and just didn’t know how to start. While the great thing is over the past decade we’ve had the opportunity to connect with people on a much greater degree than ever before. Instead of phone, mail, and possibly fax, we now have an endless array of communication devices from mobile phones, VOIP, email, and now social media.

Web 2.0 sites such as Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, LinkedIn, YouTube, and a host of other social networking sites have allowed us to connect with a great variety of people and increased our relationships with those near and far beyond what was previously imagined.

The journey that most of us take to reach these connections generally starts with those people already in our lives. Social networking expands our current network of family and friends to those just outside of our social circle. So why does this matter?

We now have an endless array of people that we can connect to spiritually, emotionally, and financially. Think about these connections in terms of business, your friend who’s a real estate agent.

As a mortgage broker, you want to connect not only with your realtor friend, but also her friends. Previously, you might be dependent upon your connections to connect with you third party connections. Now with Facebook, you do not even have to ask them for their connections. Instead, all you have to do is find out who is connected with your realtors on Facebook and send out a friend request.

Instantaneously your world is opened up to a whole new sea of possibilities. Take this extreme, and realize that every person that you know has somewhere between 250-500 personal connections. What if every person you knew was connected with you on Facebook? How much more remarkable would your sales be when you have expanded your network from 250 to 5000 people? There is only one way to find out. Go on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and other social networking sites to see what it can do for your business.
