Getting More Social

Posted by Deidre Rienzo on

Welcome to Week 16 of my adventure of following the Start Up Version of the Grow Your Business Marketing Plan + Calendar.  In my posts, I talk about my voyage down the road of self-employment as a virtual marketing assistant, my achievements and roadblocks along the way, and I include a weekly recap at the end.
Glad to say after my detour last week, I’m back on the road this week.  I picked myself up, dusted myself off, and things are going well.
I also took some time to look at what I could be doing better on a regular basis. 

While I’ve been continually identifying new prospects, I’ve been slacking a bit on my social networking.  Today, in my outreach efforts, I realized that with a basic (free) Biznik membership, you can message three people per day without upgrading.  Instead of dwelling on the fact that I must not have tried to message three people in one day until today, I decided to use this to my advantage. 

Biznik is a network of entrepreneurs and small business owners dedicated to helping each other succeed. Its tagline is, “business networking that doesn’t suck,” and its true- it does anything but suck.  It’s a friendly, helpful network with great articles, events, information, blogs and groups.  If you don’t already have a profile, why not create one? (I’ll be your first connection!) They recently added some cool videos on their homepage that tell you what it’s all about.

Since I really think Biznik is a useful community, I’m going to reach out to 3 people a day and introduce myself. I find that when I’ve done this in the past, people are happy to join your network and help you in any way they can.  
Week 16 Recap:  This week, my promo piece is almost done.  I’m happy to have something to send out when people ask for more information.  And, I turned the page on my calendar and I see that May is when we start research calling!  I’m actually REALLY excited for research calling.  I have all these prospects, and I’m ready to get talking to them.
