It's easy to get overwhelmed when it comes to establishing a social media presence.
The trick is to getstarted on the right foot and have a strategy before you take on too much! Don't think that you have to go build a dominating presence on every social network right-a-way. You should start with the major networks:
- My space
Don't think that you need to get them all done at once. Start by setting up your account in each of these and getting your name reserved. Then pick one and play with it over the next couple of weeks. Go back and complete your profile. See if you can figure out how to find and establish a few friends (get connected to friends in your office). Next sit back and watch and listen to how people interact with each other. Once you feel somewhat comfortable, start engaging with and building your contacts. Get one under your belt before you move onto the next project. So what if it takes you several months to get these done? Before you know it, you will have built a virtual empire!
