Advanced online business networking, look beyond Linkedin and Plaxo.

Business networking is big business and the list is much longer the main two Linkedin and Plaxo. Facebook, Myspace and Twitter are moving into business networking, but I still consider it more social marketing than networking.  There are also sites like Ning to form your own interest groups, or Secondlife where you can live a virtual second life, with friends, a house, a job ect.

Here is a list to check out of advanced networking on-line options.

  • www.Linkedin.com  This is a must do for business linking these days.
  • www.plaxo.com  This is a nice to have to be sure 100% is covered, you usually choose one or the other, I do both.
  • www.ecademy.com  Business networking with more of an international flair.
  • www.secondlife.com  Start your own virtual business on line and meet people that way.

Here are a list of others that have been recommended to me.

Adding polls to your social media is a sound strategy, for marketing and customer service

TWTpoll

TWTpoll

Viral and engagement are the corner stone strategies that form the foundation of the social media movement. It really is a movement, driven by consumers doing what they want, when they want and to whom they want. Facebook, MySpace, Linkedin, Plaxo all lead the way in different aspects.  Each serve a different part of the social media landscape and this is only a small portion of the landscape.

Poll are a great way to put your toe in the water. I like the TWTpoll,  http://www.twtpoll.com they are free and easy to use with Twitter.  They say that, “Twtpoll is a feedback tool that helps you to create and distribute polls on Twitter, Facebook and other social media sites.” You can ask any type of question and you and the responder can see the results real time.

The question or basis of the poll has to be topical or in someway engaging that someone would want to do your poll.  Heavy consumer research is not what this is about.  It is questions to engage and get participation with you.   Plus you may learn a thing or two.  So go and try a few polls, they are a lot of fun.
