In honor of social networking quickies this will be a brief article (relatively speaking, however, if it was not relative would it then be unrelated). This is for the habberdashers and the archiloquy’s. My apologies I found a cool site with interesting words. Without getting into a lot of quibbleism, let us discuss our fiver social networking quickies.
Social Networking Quickies That Will Tremefy You!
- Beg A Friend Or Ask Me Nicely On Skype (Contact Me On Skype on the sidebar here) to invite you onto Google Plus. Then actually accept the offer and start up your profile on Google Plus.
- Answer three questions on LinkedIn Answers related to your business. It is amazing the type of people you meet when you help them out a little!
- Think of a funny tweet to write on Twitter. It will get more retweets than your promotions, and build your reputation. For something funny I always stick with “knock! knock!” jokes, because they were hilarious as a child. Or think of something adults might find humorous as well.
- Go onto Youtube, and watch 2 relevant videos. Preferably under 5 minutes each, or the idea of a social networking quickie might be blown. If you like their video, then, wait for it, like it! Then leave a nice comment. Mean comments should be placed on notube.com/notreallyasite.
- Troll through your email inbox with the 6,484 unread messages. Delete the junk, block them, create rules for your other messages that can be put in folders, and then find 3 emails that could become money. Email them and find out how they are doing. Maybe you could do a follow up call.
- Bonus: You can continue reading other amazing posts by me on this site or maybe just have me do some social networking quickies for you!
Hope that these social networking quickies cause you much venustation!
Great list Andy … I’m not familiar with Linkedin Answers, which is no doubt one of the reasons every time you write about Linkedin I respond that I “still don’t GET it.” I’ll definitely check that out. Thanks!
LinkedIn Answers is just like Yahoo Answers for professionals. I hope that makes sense?
I’m always looking for productive ways to utilize my time, especially when I’m at work and have a few breaks. I love these productivity tips for things you can do on your break, lunch hour or whenever.
I usually spend my free time at work blog commenting if I can get a block of 20-30 min or so. I find I need to focus more in order to provide a good comment. But it can become a bit laborious.
Now I will also try some of your tips and see if the variety helps!
20-30 minutes can give you about 4-5 really good blog comments, however, longer is preferred.
These are great tips! Some times (okay most of the time) we make things so complicated when they can be really simple and effective.
I have never (read: all the time) overcomplicated things.
These quickies are great for the social savvy-less individuals out there. This will help get people in the groove of using different social site and get use to how they work.
Fun stuff too!
Nice list. I am going to apply a couple of those I haven’t been doing much with.
That is great! Glad that this list was helpful.
What I liked about your tips is you included , twitter, You Tube , Google+ and Linkedin, and your tips include engagement and sharing your skills and giving value. I will be back to your blog. All the best Rosemary
Thanks! Glad you enjoyed all of the tips I put in here for the different social networks.
You gotta love “quickies” ( Networking “Quickies” of course )
This is a handy list of tasks that will not take much time, but will help us to engage and grow our social networks and possibly help our bottom line.
I personally appreciate the idea about LinkedIn Answers. I used Yahoo answers in the past with some luck and I am on LinkedIn a lot, but I have never used LI answers.
It makes great sense, based upon my experience on Yahoo answers and as you mentioned…this is a professional version.
Keep up your great confabulation,
Definitely love the quickies!
You should really used LinkedIn answers more, because it is one of the best parts of LinkedIn.
I love these tips but that is something I have come to expect from your blog by now. Honestly, people should take the time to go through your blog posts. Your blog is loaded with valuable information that we all can apply in our own businesses.
I have not utilized G+ and the last time I tried to go there they said they were full so had to be put on que for an invite or something like that. Well I am going to kindly request you on Skype to invite me (LOL).
I am also going to take the advise on going through my emails and deleting all those unread or junks sitting on my inbox. I probably have over a 1000 unread emails.. not nice. So on my down time tonight this is what I will work on.
Thank you very much! Glad that you like my blog.
I hope now that you are having fun playing around with G+!
Make it a habit everyone few weeks to go through emails. Need to do it myself again.
thank you for providing these great tips.
Will have a look at the linkedin answer.
I am gradually building my social networking muscle and I am learning through great posts like yours what else I can do to add to my ‘regime’.
LinkedIn Answers is a great thing to add to your social networking muscle!
Useful list, and I like the fact that you’re not taking yourself too seriously. Getting into social media seems like a mammoth task, so I like these ‘bitesize’ tasks.
Treating yourself tok seriously is a bad way to create connections through social media.
