Social Networking and Selling

by Trish Bertuzzi on Fri, Feb 08, 2008

I must be getting a bit long in the tooth because all this talk about how to promote your business via social media has me in a panic!  Now, don't get me wrong, I love technology and I am one of the first to embrace whatever will help me expand my network and build my business. But I have to build a profile on Facebook?

I just put my picture on LinkedIn and it took years for me get up the courage to do that.  Now every time I go to my profile I see myself staring back at me.  When the heck did I have to start wearing glasses?

So, I decided to start to educate myself.  I read a great blog posting this week written by Jill Konrath author of "Selling to Big Companies".  In it she talks about what she has learned about effectively using LinkedIn to your advantage and how to present yourself most effectively on the site.  She also quotes other authors and experts - all very interesting!

I look forward to your feedback!
