Sign up for a Twitter account

Another great social networking site out there is Twitter. Twitter is unique because you only have 140 characters to write in. I like this because people are short and to the point. They don't have enough characters to drone on. I can easily find links and other information. Sometimes I hear about things faster on there than I do on the news! It is a great way to socialize and connect with people. Below is another YouTube tutorial on how to set up a Twitter account. This one is just over 2 minutes long.

Another word of warning - be interesting! If you are always writing about your sales or your business opportunity it gets old really quick. Same thing if you are always posting about what you are eating or doing in your day. Try to include useful links, tips, inspirational quotes, a few of your sales, etc. Mix it up. If you need a friend, my username is @time4felt - I would love to add you!

Sign up for a Facebook account

Facebook is a quickly growing social network on the internet. It is so much fun to reconnect with people you know! I use it to communicate with people on my team or in groups that I'm interested in. It is also a great way to connect with new people. If you are not on Facebook already, you are missing out on a great opportunity to offer your products or business opportunity to all kinds of people. Here is a short video (5 mins) on how to set up a Facebook account.

Be sure to use caution. Don't spam people with "join my business" stuff all the time. You want to include things that are interesting to the others there. Talk. Build relationships. Then you can occasionally mention your products or business opportunity. Just be the kind of person you would want to be a friend to.

Are you Technology savvy?

The under 30 generation is more reliant on technology than any other generation. They expect everyone else to be as well. Sites like Facebook, My Space, YouTube, Twitter, Linked In and many others are places they all frequent! Most have had a cell phone for years and could almost text while sleeping they do it so often! This is how the WOW generation communicates.

Because social networking is growing everyday it is something that if you aren't should be! In my next few posts, I will help walk you through getting set up on a few of these sites. They are great to connect with people on your teams or downlines and some people even use these kinds of sites to find new people to recruit!
