I always tell clients that it is no longer enough to be beautiful when it comes to marketing online.

 

No matter how much money you spend on a graphic designer, a social media expert, and a community manager, you may very well not find the kind of success you want and expect from your investment in social media and social networks such as Facebook, Twitter, Google+, YouTube, and Pinterest.

It’s thought that Facebook’s IPO will raise $10 billion and place Facebook’s value at $100 billion. To put that in perspective, only companies such as Visa and GM have ever raised so much in an IPO. And the $100 billion valuation will make Facebook a more valuable company than McDonald’s:

How to turn LinkedIn into a relationship filter

How to turn LinkedIn into a relationship filter | SM | Scoop.it

The following interview is with Dave Gowel, who has been recognized as a “LinkedIn Jedi” by Inc.com and the Boston Globe, is the CEO of RockTech, and author of The Power in a Link: Open Doors, Close Deals and Change the Way you do Business Using LinkedIn (Wiley, December 2011). Gowel co-founded RockTech with Mark Rockefeller to build software tools that help corporations increase productivity through quicker adoption of underutilized technologies. The interview has been edited for clarity.


A lot of people see LinkedIn as a recruiting or job hunting network. What are some of the other ways professionals can put LinkedIn to work, once they’ve landed that dream job?

 

I think one of the key ways to think about it is really a relationship filter, that when you put in all the relationships that you already have, it allows you to see the ones that you could have more easily, or get information about potential ones...

5 Tips To Turn Your Personal Profile Into A Professional Place | Fast Company

5 Tips To Turn Your Personal Profile Into A Professional Place | Fast Company | SM | Scoop.it

BY AMBER MAC, Jan. 16th 2012
http://www.fastcompany.com/user/amber-mac

When Facebook launched Pages late in 2007, big brands finally had an opportunity to use the social networking platform to better connect with fans. Soon after companies signed on, well-known personalities and public figures started to use the new Pages tools to publicly bring their communities together online.

***

While the division between personal profile accounts and public pages seemed like the perfect answer for individuals keen to separate their personal and public lives, for many people using Facebook for professional purposes, these two offerings just added to the digital confusion.
Recently, Facebook introduced a few new features that will help someone who wants to use their personal profile for personal branding purposes. If you want to use the world's most popular social network to promote what you do professionally, here are a few tips to get you started.
*****
1. Add a Subscribe button.

Facebook recently recognized that many people with personal profile accounts would like to open up their updates to the public. The Subscribe button is the answer to that problem

http://www.facebook.com/about/subscribe

****

 2. Protect your timeline.

***

3. Update your information.

**

4. Choose photos wisely.

*

5. Post consistent updates.

Within your Activity Log (which only you can see) you'll be able to view everything you've ever shared from the time you joined Facebook. If you're promoting your personal brand, make sure that you're engaging with your community on a regular basis. Compare your activity with how many new people are subscribing to your account to see if you're doing a good job reaching the people who you want to connect with on a professional level.
