I’ve never been a big fan of that fancy web 2.0 stuff like Myspace, Facebook, etc. I hardly ever talk to my old high school buddies on my social networking accounts. It just never really caught on with me personally. Even with blogging, I’m still uncomfortable doing it at times.
I started because some marketers I respect say I need to do it. And hey, if they are more successful than I am, I listen.
But something unexpected happened when I started doing all of this stuff…
I started recognizing people! I am now connecting and talking with people that I probably wouldn’t have noticed otherwise.
For example, if you look on my blog in the right side column, you’ll notice that I have lists posted for active commenters.
When you leave comments on my blog, I see it!
When you say something intelligent in a comment, I notice you!
When you’re leaving comments every week, I start looking for you!
When you reply to something I say on facebook or myspace, I actually read it and see who it’s from!
And when it comes time to do business together, you’ll have a MUCH better chance of getting a yes!
There’s people that I remember from my blog. And if I find them on places like Twitter or Myspace, I add them to my friends list just based off of that.
I realize this is part of what web 2.0 is all about. But I’m amazed at how much you can stand out just by one simple gesture.
It’s unfortunate that it took me so long to realize the power of web 2.0, but better late than never!
If you’re like me, don’t be afraid to jump in and give it a try. You never know who you’ll meet or if some big name marketer might be interested in learning more about you!
