Lots of folks are talking about using Social Media for business, including me. When I speak to lawyers, after the “What the heck is …” questions come the “How much time will this take me?” ones. Last week, my friend Chris Brogan published his 19 Presence Management Chores You COULD Do Every Day post on his fantastic blog. In it, he shares 19 “chores” one could do every day (or at least every week) to keep one’s online presence alive and kicking on Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and Blogs.
Here are his LinkedIn tips:
- Enter any recent business cards to invite them to LinkedIn (if you’re growing your network).
- Drop into Q&A and see if you can volunteer 2-3 answers.
- Provide 1 recommendation every few days for people you can honestly and fully recommend.
- Add any relevant slide decks to the Slideshare app there, or books to the Amazon bookshelf.
Nobody knows this growing world of “Presence Management” better than Chris, and I’d highly recommend you not only read his full post, but add some (or all) of his suggested “to-do’s” to your list.
