This piece is by Mark Schaefer, - if you're not active on Pinterest, after you read this based on actual research, you might want to rethink your strategy.


Here are some highlights from The Social Habit research of American social media users shows some pretty staggering insights. Here are a few highlights:


  • Usage of Pinterest is already nearly as large as LinkedIn with 21% having a Pinterest account versus 26% on LinkedIn
  • More than half of Pinterest users visit the site each day.
  • We could be seeing just the tip of the iceberg for Pinterest’s growth. 38% of U.S. social media users plan to use Pinterest more often
  • 70% of the site’s users are women and 64% of the site’s fans are under the age of 34. In fact, Pinterest is the third-most widely-used social network for women 18-44 (behind Facebook and Twitter).
  • The most popular pins?

7 Key Habits of Super Networkers

7 Key Habits of Super Networkers | Inspiring Social Media | Scoop.it

The ability to network successfully can be one of the greatest assets in business. It allows some people to find incredible opportunities, while others just watch from the sidelines.

 

Here are seven of the most important habits to develop:

 

1. Ask insightful questions.
Before attending networking events, get the names of the people who are expected to attend and search social media sites like LinkedIn to figure out which topics they're probably most interested in.

 

2. Add value.
One of the most powerful networking practices is to provide immediate value to a new connection.

 

3. Learn their 'story.'
Ask successful entrepreneurs to tell you how they got where they are. Most people think of this as an exercise in rapport building, but hearing these stories can tell you a lot about a person's approach to business.

 

4. Share a memorable fact.

Mention something personal that defines who you really are.

 

5. Keep a list.

Lists give you something to reference in conversation the next time you meet.

 

6. Make small promises and keep them.

No matter how small a promise you make -- such as sending an email or returning a phone call -- delivering on that promise reflects on your character.

 

7. Reward your 'power' contacts.

Keep a list of your top five to 10 networking partners and do something each week to add value to one person's life or business.
