These business people have proven to themselves just how advantageous it is for this business to establish a social network for their clients online. Not only did they experience a growth on their profitability but as well as on their product’s quality. With all these happening around you, don’t you think it’s about time that you create a social networking website for your business as well ?
Some businesses are not so confident about having their own social networking site yet and so they’re still testing the waters by actively using popular networking sites to promote their business. Some use more business-related sites to cultivate a good relationship with many professionals in the hope to find people who will work for them and contribute to the business’ growth as well.
Many developers have seen the growing need for business people to create a social networking website of their own, not only to rely on “generic” business networking sites. This website should be tailored to and focused on the specific business and its users as well as on meeting their needs. Some website companies will offer to create the website for you while some would offer you software that you can use to create your website. The latter is more advantageous for you if you have someone in the team who is technically-inclined since you can really personalized the website according to your needs and also fully control it on your own discretion.
There are so many applications that will help you towards your social networking endeavours. Some may be free while others may incur that you spend some money but I guarantee you it will be all worth every penny. Surely you already know the so many benefits of creating a social networking website for your company, so what’s stopping you from joining the trend?

Kids, Social Media and Internet Safety for Homeschooling Families – iHomeschool Hangout
Social networking – everyone is doing it but are we doing it right? Nowadays businesses are spending big bucks on improving their brand awareness and this means they are joining their teenage children on all the big social sites!
It seems even the big businesses are having to succumb to the huge advertising boards that are Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn to mention a few. No one can afford to ignore the reach of social media.
So how do we control what is being written about our business? Social media is a public forum so once it’s out there you have to remember there is no going back.
It is not just your business pages that have to be monitored; one of the biggest concerns is naive employee’s posting comments on their social pages about your business.
A social media policy needs to be flexible but clear for all your employees. An outright ban on social media sites will not work; almost all of us have access to a smart phone with all these apps under our nose. Don’t dictate but discuss!
Set your brand and stick to it; this way you will be recognisable and stand out from other similar companies. Talk to your employees, novel idea, but by discussing the dangers of social networking as well as the advantages you may open up a forum of ideas that could benefit you and your business.
Open discussions are less condescending than an email telling you what your employees can and can’t say or do in their spare time.
We have to remember there will always be a small minority of people who will do something silly no matter what you say, honesty and trust is crucial in your relationship with your employees.
Always remember what you are trying to achieve by your social networking; think about your audience and what they want to see.
What about blogging? Blogging seems to be the path to enlightenment these days or certainly to a spot in Google’s good books. Make sure the content is fresh and interesting. Think quality not just quantity! Articles should reflect what your business is about and offer something of interest to the reader whether this is advice or just an informative view on your business.
Think about what your clients are searching for and write about it! Don’t use obscure titles, it may seem clever but your potential audience won’t find you! They are going to search using key words so make sure you include them in your article and title.
Ask questions and involve your reader in a discussion, this makes the experience more individual and draws them in. Remember the better the article the more likely people will share your link driving traffic to your website and potentially improving your customer base!
Working in HR we have to be very aware of Social Media and it’s pitfalls but we also need to remember what a great tool this can be. I try to make my HR Blog personal whilst passing on useful HR information, hope you enjoy it. Let me know if there are other topics you would be interested in, I would love to hear from you.
Social Networking Trends to Watch for 2013
When I first started on line like most I had absolutely no understanding of how many social media sites there were out there. AND it is growing daily. With sites like Ning everyone can now create their own social media site, will it ever end?? As I learn more I continually hear people talking about the aggregation of their social media sites and have read a few blog posts on how to use them. Here is the wikipedia definition:
Social network aggregation is the process of collecting content from multiple social network services, such as MySpace or Facebook. The task is often performed by a social network aggregator, which pulls together information into a single location, or helps a user consolidate multiple social networking profiles into one profile. Various aggregation services provide tools or widgets to allow users to consolidate messages, track friends, combine bookmarks, search across multiple social networking sites, read RSS feeds for multiple social networks, see when their name is mentioned on various sites, access their profiles from a single interface, provide “lifestreams”, etc. Social network aggregation services attempt to organize or simplify a user’s social networking experience, although the idea has been satirized by the concept of a “social network aggregator aggregator.”
As you join more sites your content becomes spread all over the place and it becomes necessary to take some sort of control. If you do not then social media can be a BIG waste of time. Just think if you were using 25 different social media sites, how long does it take just to sign into them all? Here are 3 of the social network aggregation sites I have looked into…
Friendfeed “Read and share however you want – from your email, your phone or even from Facebook. Publish your FriendFeed to your website or blog, or to services you already use, like Twitter.” I admit to not really getting this one, I signed up for an account months ago and almost never use it.
Fuser “Manage your email and social networking messages from one inbox” Looks interesting but I have never invested any time to learn how to use it. I would love to hear from people who are successfully using this one.
Spokeo is a “search engine specialized in organizing people-related information from phone books, social networks, marketing lists, business sites, and other public sources.” This one was recommended to me by an associate and it does look interesting
You will need to decide exactly what you want the aggreation site to do for you, because there are many out there and more to come. Each one will do a little something different for you so it is best to look at the sites from the perspective of what you want it to do for you rather than what it has to offer. Take control or it will take control of you!
