I selected this piece written by Jeff Mortimer for Herald and News because social networking (aka Social Business) is rapidly becoming a critical component to influence and drive business objectives. I found this article informative and the suggestions provided a great framework for any business to create an effective social networking program.

**62% of twitter users who become followers of a brand are more likely to buy that brand's products?
**60% of Facebook users who become a fan of a brand are more likely to recommend that brand to a friend
**74% of consumers aree influenced on buying decisions by fellow socializers afer soliciting input via social media
Here are a few out of 10 great tips for you to succeed on social networks:

**Identify Your Ideal Client: Does your client want what you have and do they value what you do?
**Discover Your Core Marketing Message: Your claim should be powerful and intentional and, once crafted, should quickly communicate the difference between you and your competitors — is it your service, price, product? Ask your clients first.
