Social Networking And Home Based Business
Social Media isn’t a fad, it’s a fundamental shift in the way we communicate with each other. When I was first introduced to social networking, I thought it was just for the “young” people and that it was just fun and games. We have been in the home based network marketing business industry since 1995 and we had built most of our business without the internet. So when the internet was introduced to us, we took a while to get used to Web 1.0 – email, and all of the websites. It worked pretty well, until I was introduced to Facebook by Shannon Tecson, one of our leaders in Hawaii. She insisted more than once (thank goodness for her persistence) that I take a look and then she started to “monetize” from her Facebook page, and that got my attention.
I have to admit, I was a little slow to understand how incredible this new tool was. As I started to connect with more people around the world, I realized how powerful this could be for relationships and business. One of the reasons I love being in my home based business is that everyone in our business became my family. All of the people we do business with are our friends and our family, because we all love what we do, therefore we share it with everyone we know. A lot of our business comes from “Word of Mouth” because of how we look, how we feel, and the freedom we all have. People want to look and feel the way we feel, and have the freedom of working at home, so they become a part of our business too.
As we began getting excited about the exponential growth of the internet from Web 1.0 to 2.0 and now to 3.0, we realized that social networking is word of mouth communication with a huge advantage. We can now talk to the world! It now has become a global “world of mouth” communication, which is really referral marketing. If people like how they look and how they feel, and, if they feel good about you and your company, they tell others about you, your product and your company. Wow, what a concept? And technology has made communication around the world possible for free!
I am so grateful to companies like Facebook and Skype who have revolutionized the way we all connect with each other. I have made so many friendships with people in many different countries whom I would have never met if it were not for these emerging technologies. I just love it!
The world has changed forever. We are now able to have family and friends all over the world whom we have never met in person, and yet we are able to connect with them on such an intimate level. We are all so fortunate to experience this evolution during this time when the whole world will become One!
