2Goal #2:  Spend less time social networking and more time making money!

Here are five tips to save tons of time on your social networking:

  1. Block out 15 minutes each day for this activity
  2. Know what you are doing: posting on walls? Making new connections? Sending birthday wishes? This will help you target your time and not get distracted.
  3. Create a system for what to do and when: accept friend requests on Mondays & Thursdays, respond to messages on Tuesdays & Fridays, build new friends & post on walls on Wednesdays.
  4. Don’t do it yourself! If you have a system, why can’t your VA or even your teen help out?
  5. Turn your virtual friends into real friends! Pick up the phone at least twice each week to talk to some of your new friends. Build those relationships now before you need to sell something. Promotions will be much easier later on.

Don’t Make Yourself Sound So Boring

Don’t Make Yourself Sound So Boring

GUEST POST FROM JOAN STEWART (see credits at bottom of post)

I’m not mentioning any names.
