Social Media Activity List
Though the term “social media” groups social networks like LinkedIn, Google+ and Facebook all in one bucket, in reality they’re all quite different. Each one has a different kind of communication style and each one has different tools you can use to promote your business.
Here’s a list of the various different kinds of social media activities you can do on each site.
Social Media LinkedIn Activity List
Add Keywords to Your Profile – Potential employers and partners will often look for contacts by doing keyword searches. Look at other people in your industry and see what kind of keywords they’re using and make sure you’ve got the same keywords in your profile.
Join and Participate in Groups – Social Media Groups are a fantastic place to meet other people who’re in the same field as you. Join groups and be an active participant. Offer advice where you can and network.
Complete Your Work History – The more comprehensive you are with your work experience, the easier you make it for other people to get a sense for who you are. Many employers won’t even consider candidates who don’t have their career information fully filled out.
Get as Many Recommendations as Possible –Comb through your social media network and look for people who harbor goodwill towards you. Ask them to give you a recommendation.
Social Media Activity Conclusion
Actively Seek Out Connections – Look for people who’re one degree of separation away from you whom you want to meet. Don’t be shy about asking people in your network for connections. As long as you make it clear that you’re someone who gives valuable advice, people will generally be more than happy to make a referral for you.
As you can tell, each social network works a bit differently than other networks. Each network has participants interact with one another in slightly different ways. Tailor your daily activity lists to the specific social media network you’re working on.
