Social Networking is Like a Party

I 've been saying this for a long time (well, as long as you can when it comes to the concept of social networking), but social networking is more like a "party" to get to know each other and start down the "know me, like me, trust me" process. Just as you wouldn't attend a networking function and expect to "sell" someone something the first time you meet them, the online social networking world is all about creating relationships (friends) and getting to know each other. It's not until they "really" know you that you may be presented with the opportunity to earn their business.

The video from Perry Belcher below is a good representation of this process and wanted to post it here. I'd be interested after you watch the video in your comments and thoughts. I think he makes some good points and does a good job of putting it into "real world" terminology.

So, given the information shared in this video, where are YOU having your "party"? If you're interested in getting help (think "party planner") be sure to let me know. As a Certified Internet Business Consultant and part of the global WSI network, we've helped people (and businesses) just like YOU with their "online parties"!
