Standing out in Professional Networks through Social Media

By: Monica Peña   (@MUNDUmedia)

Are you using social media to get the most out of the networks you belong to? As we all know, it is not enough to simply pay membership dues and wish for the best. To get true value from membership we must get involved and attend events. Same is true for those same groups’ social media outlets including LinkedIn, newsletters, Facebook fan page, etc.

Here are some considerations when tapping into these social media outlets while allowing your professionalism and knowledge to shine:

Be aware of criteria. If not sure ask.

No spamming. Be a useful contributor.

Don’t need to reinvent the wheel. If attending one of the organizations events write about the speaker and point out items learned. Members that were not able to attend will appreciate the information and start seeing you as a resource.

Interaction is key. A lot is learned from other’s thoughts and is a good way to get noticed.

Post events and attend new ones. Events are a useful ways to see people again and build those long lasting relationships.

Be consistent. As you are continuously seen virtually and beyond your visibility will grow.
