If you are connected to business contacts on Facebook via Groups, Events, on Pages or as Friends, make sure they can learn about your business from your Profile info.
Leaving this info out is like going to a networking event without business cards.
One of the fastest ways to build your business social network is to connect with business contacts with your PERSONAL PROFILE.
Wait… aren’t businesses supposed to use PAGES? Well, yes, but there are many features that allow you to connect to contacts with your personal profile: Groups, Events, commenting on your Friends’s posts or Pages. I’m connected to hundreds of business contacts through these channels and I’m always surprised how few have their business info on their profiles.
This simple update will set you apart from your competition, and assure that the people who know, like and trust you can move forward with your business.
