Friendships don\’t happen over night, they happen over time and guess what, relationship building in social media also takes time!
Let\’s talk about Twitter! For your information I love Twitter and have made great friends on Twitter! Have I met those friends face to face, some yes and most no. They are global! The friendships I have developed on Twitter did not happen over night, they happened over time!
Time is the key word. How much time you invest in the relationship is very important. Let\’s talk about Twitter! First thing in the morning send a tweet out and say Good Morning! You will be surprised at how many people respond with a Good Morning to you. Listen to what other people are talking about and retweet a post. FYI people love to get their tweets retweeted! It\’s a way to get noticed and connected. Thank everyone who mentions and retweets your posts. Last but not least, don\’t just post a tweet and forget about it. You would not just walk away from a conversation you started, would you? Keep tabs on your Twitter account throughout the day, retweet, ask questions, comment and ENGAGE!
Facebook is all about sharing information! What you share and how often you share is important for both Business and Personal Facebook Pages, remember a LIKE can also turn into an Unlike. Keep tabs on your audience by looking at your Insights and Analytics (only available for business pages.) You can see what\’s working and what\’s not. There is great information Facebook is sending you so make sure to review it.
Relationship Building is just that, building a relationship. It takes time! Start by getting social!
Twitter: Tweet and Retweet
Facebook: LIKE, Share, Engage
Google Plus: Give it a +1 and Share with your Circles on Google+
My last thought regarding Relationship Building in Social Media is don\’t put a time on it, put time into it!
