I am Jyotindra Zaveri, your friendly social media marketing consultant and trainer.
I suggest you keep a pen and a notebook ready to jot down points. I will be discussing many essential aspects, takeaway and homework!
GIST OF POINTS DISCUSSED:
Because of the current health situation, a lot of us are working from home. Even if you cannot go to your usual places to network face-to-face with others at meetings or social events, you can still take action and build up your networking online.
First of all, Fear is the hidden enemy.
Important Takeaway: Do not let FEAR paralyze you. Let us use technology, such as Facebook LIVE to communicate.
The challenge today is how to remain active and productive staying at home?
Plan your time daily, say about an hour, to reach out to a few people each day in your social media network and fix an appointment to WhatsApp call. You are welcome to call me on
WhatsApp in the evening: +91 9552946949 at a mutually convenient time.
There are many ways to connect with others, even if not face to face. Send a connection request, to those whom you had met in the past, on LinkedIn or Facebook. Take out all those business cards and reestablish relations. Send a Thank You message using the Facebook Messenger or LinkedIn Message option. Do not spam. Remember, the purpose is to establish a relationship.
Homework: Expand your network on Facebook and LinkedIn.
Have an actual conversation with them. If both you and that person are comfortable with setting up a video call, I recommend connecting with them at a scheduled time on WhatsApp or Skype or similar, video platform.
Not only chat about each other’s businesses but ask how they are doing personally. Find out if there are ways you can help them. Share how you plan to utilize the time at home. Exchange ideas. Maybe you will learn something.
Fortunately, people can still build meaningful and useful relationships, even if they are stuck inside their homes.
Homework: Schedule WhatsApp video calls. Fix Date and time mutually convenient for audio or video call.
Every business wants to be the customer’s first choice. Building and managing a brand can play a significant part in making that happen. A strong brand can make any business stand out from the crowd, particularly in competitive markets.
Let us mentally be prepared to cope up with social distancing for another month or so. I hope the situation will improve.
Important Takeaway:Utilize your time in learning some new skill.
Most of you must be using Facebook and maybe LinkedIn for business marketing. But, I would like you to use all the super seven platforms.
Please register (signup) with the following SEVEN social media platforms; if already not done so:
- Slideshare (Signup with your LinkedIn ID)
- Instagram (Signup with your Facebook ID)
- YouTube (Signup with your Gmail, Not necessary to upload a video).
Homework:SHARE your URL here in Comments so that we all can connect with you.
See you again next Wednesday Live on April 01, 2020.
