Have a plan, and consider how sociable are you?

Where can you say it?How many can you manage and where are your consumers likely to be?

How often should you do it?Be regular, but not all at once – time your messages, have breathing space between your updates, blogs and discussions.

What do you want customers to do once they have heard you?

Make sure you have a clear call to action. Be prepared to target them directly and to respond to them directly – good or bad.

Be sociable, be engaging

What is interesting about what you do? And what you offer?

Don’t just sell it – BE it!

Tell your story, engage others and be interested in other people’s stories.

If you wouldn’t do it in the real world, don’t do it virtually!

Be sociable, seriously sociable

It’s not a personal facebook page and it’s not a personal group on Linkedin

Don’t spam it – think about what you’d want to read and try to keep your rants to yourself

Share your expertise – your presentations and papers Set up a group – based on your expertise or interest – invite

others and start debates Share media clips, images and topics relevant to your

business

You’re not just sociable, you’re an expert

How big is the twitterverse? Make sure your nugget of information is interesting enough to make an impact.

How many other facebook pages are you competing with? Make sure yours is engaging and engaged with – what’s not to like?
