    Social Networking for Professionals - Why Network?

    (Page 3 of 4 )

    Searching out a networking site, building a profile and collecting contacts can be time-consuming tasks. Youíre a business professional, so why would you take the time to do all of this when youíve already got a job to do? Why bother with networking at all? In one word, marketing.

    Unless youíre willing to spend extra time searching, you probably wonít get a bevy of contacts through having a professional networking profile alone. But even if you do nothing else but fill out a profile, you are getting your name out there in a very tangible and meaningful way. Youíre self-promoting, and in the world of business self promotion is extremely important and necessary. By simply putting your name on a professionally-toned networking site, youíre distinguishing yourself. In business, sometimes thatís all it takes to get the ball rolling and get yourself recognized.

    Having a professional profile online means you have a link which you can pass out to other professionals to let them know more about you. It means your name is part of the online world, so you can be searched on Google and other popular search engines. A professional networking profile means exposure and opportunity. What could be better for business than that?

    Successful Professional Networking

    Thereís no point in participating in professional networking if you arenít going to do it well. You should treat professional networking the same way you would treat any other business venture -- the objective is success. But what defines success when it comes to professional networking?

    Are you a business success if you have a huge list of professional networking contacts? Have you found success if youíve found a way to build a huge base of online friends and connections? While having lots of contacts is all well and good, it doesnít necessarily mean you are reaching a sought-after business goal.

    If you want to meet new people, business professionals like yourself, professional networking is a great way to go about getting it done. You can build up a base of career-oriented people, the uses of which may be limitless. Simply having a network of working professionals from a variety of different fields can be useful. You can contact these people perhaps for services, tips, advice and a bevy of other uses. But even when you have no real interest in networking or meeting people, a professional social network can serve a purpose.

    Once again, the answer is marketing. There is no price you can put on the value of self-promotion in the business world. Getting your name out there, leaving a mark and making yourself available are the hallmarks of business success. Achieve this and youíre bound to do well.
