December 28, 2009 | 2 Comments

The Internet connects us like no other medium, and social networking sites are a great way to stay in touch and turn connections into business. Here are the top ten opportunities that we think social networking offers and why you should stay connected in 2010:

  1. Spread a consistent message/image to a large audience about your brand, identity, and products/services
  2. Meet people in your industry, find employees and employers, ask for referrals, and get/give advice
  3. Put a “face” on your business and show your corporate personality
  4. Help build your website’s search engine ranking by cross-linking on all sites and optimizing media assets (the more quality links to your site, the better!)
  5. Compliment your existing online and offline presence (Do not replace them)
  6. Provide helpful, relevant information that is useful to the masses
  7. Turn your new and existing customers into repeat customers and fans
  8. Target specific demographics/industries/companies by using proper and consistent keywords/phrases for your audience
  9. Promote your events, promotion and specials to a wider audience
  10. Elevate your customer service to a new, transparent level
