In today’s business networking tip Kevin Willett speaks about the importance of building relationships n social media.
Today I had a guy reach out to me to connect on social media. When I accepted his connection request he messaged me saying ” Brother hit me up if your need my services.” When I responded that I would like to Skype with him, to learn more about him, he said that he was way too busy for that but, “call him if I need anything”?
This response is wrong on many levels. Let’s focus on building relationships. Please understand that connecting with people on social media is just the beginning of the relationship. It’s like meeting someone at a networking event, we still have to work on building the relationship and getting the other person to know like and trust us. Please do not try to skip this step, it will hurt your networking efforts.
