Example of how to make social networking work for you

20 Ways To Make $100 A Day Online

Does social networking work? Sometimes.

I made this post on Twitter this morning:

My son, @NateCryns, is mentioned in the NYT as the Voice Over Recordist in a new movie. Need his help? #fb

See the #fb at the end? This enables the Twitter post to be automatically be posted on Facebook as well.

So, I have close to 4,000 followers on Twitter, maybe 300 on Facebook. Maybe 80 people will actually see my post on Twitter and maybe 20 on Facebook. With the stroke of a keyboard, Nate's name is presented to 100 people.

I agree, this does not by itself make many people aware. BUT, if you could get 10 people to do the same thing, then you have 1,000 people where Nate is not longer a total stranger.

Who knows if there is not someone who knows someone who is a kingmaker? Maybe one of those 1,000 people is a production assistant to some bigshot movie producer.

My advice is to make four or five posts throughout the day with the same important content. You may reach more people that way, but we don't want to be annoying either. Also, try putting in "Please RT" in your Twitter post. That does help to get people to tell their people.

What do you think?
