How Social Networking Is Word Of Mouth Communication

Social-Network-and-Home-Based-Network-Marketing-Business-150x150Social 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! :lol:

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!

    As the Borg would say to their soon-to-be conquests, “Resistance is futile,” so is social networking to us 40-somethings who go into “fight or flight” mode when the topic arises. I was so overwhelmed the first time I opened my FB account and returned a week later to find posts from everyone I had invited to be my “friend” detailing snippets of their daily lives. TMO as my 10-year-old would say. I went into shutdown mode but thanks to you, am getting better. We have a choice as to what we read and engage our attention to. There is no turning back when it comes to social media. Grow or die, as author Eckhart Tolle says. Thank you Kellie for helping us focus on what’s important so we don’t have to be inundated and overwhelmed. What you’re doing here is a valuable service for us who have raised our hands to get better every day. You are a gem!

    Aloha Kellie:
    Great blog…thank you for furthering your knowledge into our new world of technology. I feel it’s an incredible way to stay “connected” with those we love…as you said here “family.” Family in our homes, family in our businesses and staying close to those we love. I strongly feel that facebook, youtube and other networks have opened the way for us to gain massive knowledge from experts whom we used to have to pay thousands of dollars to go and see and now we can obtain this information for “free.” Social media has opened up the way for me to make new friends and to also catch up with friends from the past. I love social media because you have taught me how to “read” between the lines. I can find out just about anything today. With social media are lives are now transparent because the world lets us know what they’re doing 24 hours a day!

    Mahalo for you post!
    Love ya,
    Shannon

    Hello Kellie,

    Thanks again for another great post:) such valuable and interesting content as always. I was a bit of a ‘techno retard’ as a relative affectionately called me …. bit scared, ignorant and unwilling to venture into the world of Internet technologies e.g. ‘Social Media’ … and now I have entered into this world, there is no going back, ‘WOW’ I am totally amazed and grateful for the power it yields to connect us, not only with our family and existing friends, but also to make new friends all over the world, and to connect with likeminded people. As previously commented by ‘Debra A, we have a choice as to what we read and engage our attention to’ and I agree it can become overwhelming, so it is always very helpful when people like yourself Kellie advise us on how to stay focused on what is important. I have amazed myself (and my friends and family haha!) at these new technological skills I am learning, but I realize that this is only part of the fascinating journey I have put myself on. It is difficult at times with many challenges, but it is also such fun with a sense of achievement as I ‘see and feel’ myself changing to become the person I want to be and to live the life that I really want, and to also help and inspire others on the way …. such profound words hey! … so thank you again Kellie and all my new found friends who are helping me on this journey, and who I would not have known had I not discovered ‘Social Media’

    This was going to be a short post (got a bit carried away haha!) but everytime I check out your site Kellie (which I do often, despite gradually gaining new followers) you always seem to be ‘on my wavelength’ and you always inspire me :)and I am grateful to be part of your family (Ohana) thank you (Mahalo)
