Perfect Networker – A Way to Network Perfectly

Writer Shelly Meyer writes about Perfect Networker

Perfect Networker

Perfect Networker is an online community that connects business professionals all over the world. Currently, there are over 12,000 members and more people are joining every day. Business professionals can network with others in their field to gain valuable information in their line of work, thereby increasing their presence in their industry with feedback and referrals.

Everyone on Perfect Network supports and communicates with one another via forums, blogs, groups, and by setting up local events where offline relationships are created and long-term contacts are made.

I became a member of Perfect Networker earlier this month to help with my writing career and I have already made some great contacts in the writing, publishing, marketing, and public relations industries. There are forum posts on just about every topic in almost every business community, and you can join groups in networking, marketing and special interests.

There is a classified section with job postings, for sale items, housing and office space availability, and business opportunity listings. Included in this section are featured ads promoting marketing and assistance with many business needs from office supplies to “jobs wanted” to help with starting your own business. In the events section, you can search for workshops, seminars, networking conferences, and employment job fairs in your area by doing a specified search.

On the Perfect Networker site, you have the ability to invite your friends and colleagues to grow your, and their, networks and contacts. Within the blogs, you can read what other members are doing and what they have going on, all within a specific line of business. All it takes is doing a search for the type of information you want. There is something for everyone, in every industry, on Perfect Networker, including music, local and world business news, polls, and articles.

It is very easy to set up your own account on the Perfect Networker website. Go to PerfectNetworker and sign up with your email and password. The next step is to set up your profile with as much information as possible so others in your field can find you quickly and easily, and where you can search profiles of other members in your industry.

Again, their website is PerfectNetworker. Sign up and find your perfect network.

LinkedIn: Are You Getting the First Degree?

Founded in 2002 by Reid Hoffman, the former Vice President of PayPal, LinkedIn.com is an online professional contact database where members can connect directly with people they already know and trust. Unlike other networking sites, you have to know these contacts directly by having worked with them, attending the same school, or being in a similar group or organization . This immediate connection with people that they already know is considered, according to LinkedIn, as a first-degree connection.

Then members can form second-degree connections by linking with their first-degree contacts’ connections. Then third-degree connections can be developed by going through their contacts’ contacts’ contacts. And so on and so forth. (Wow! Does this get confusing?) Actually, it’s quite simple. Through your friends and contacts, you can connect with their friends and contacts.

This method was created to protect LinkedIn members’ privacy and to develop trust. It was also developed to keep spam and unwanted solicitation at bay.

The power of belonging to such a trusted network means that you can connect with someone who knows someone who knows someone else. Can you imagine contacting the owner of the company in which you wish to gain employment through a friend or colleague of his/hers? Or how about connecting with someone who you might never get a chance to meet or talk to in real life? This increases your chances of success and meeting your goals as well as helping others succeed. This is the power of LinkedIn.

So getting the first degree isn’t such a bad thing after all, is it?

The WRITE of Her Life!

words

Julia’s eyes lit up and her voice exuded confidence when she talked about fitness and showed others how to set the machines. As a gym floor attendant, she had just started her own personal training business. She had no problem passing on her hard-earned knowledge and assistance but when it came to telling a potential client about her training services, she just couldn’t gather up the nerve.

She wanted to find a way to be more confident, know what to say to people, and how to present her new training service to others. Yet when she tried, she stumbled through the words and before she could get them out, people were already telling her no and she continued to give away her personal training skills.

Amidst crocodile tears, Julia told me that she did not graduate high school. Then she married young and spent many years caring for her children and taking them to work with her. Janitorial work was her job. She gained that employment after many failed interviews and her self esteem wilted away. The message, “You’re no good. No one wants you.” was what she heard repeatedly as she was turned down job after job.

I worked with her for a year. It all started with the words that she told herself. The words that she heard from those who told her that she was not worthy were allowed to play in her mind repeatedly. Together, we rewrote her story. As typing was a skill she did not acquire, I had her type out her story on the computer. I asked her to write about herself from my eyes. “But you view me in such a great way” was her cry. I told her that I view her in a realistic way.

Day by day and month by month, she poked at the keyboard, typing out her story again but this time, in a more positive, realistic manner. During each biweekly session with Julia, I directed her to locate her strengths. At first she said that were none. I told her to explore and refused to move on until she could see what others see when they asked her for fitness advice.

As she rewrote her life, she found the right words to use for her biography, her introduction, and a way to promote her new business. She found a way to help others by offering them her personal training services. Julia is now a successful personal trainer with many clients. She was also able to do something else that she had always dreamed of which was to type her husband a love letter and e-mail it to him as he had no idea that she learned how to type and use the computer.

To this day, I still get cards and letters from Julia….

Google, Yahoo, and MSN have just laid off all their employees?!

Have these search engines decided that the visitors and users can do the job without any paid staff? Are they now encouraging the world to continue supporting their businesses by providing the content, images, videos, ads, and culture?

Have the major search engines really given their staff the boot? No!

But they do have their doors wide open, as always, for anyone to contribute by continuing to take part in the production and publishing. In other words, the success of the Internet is due to the participation of the users.

This has led to the new buzz word “social media”. The best way to describe social media is that it is the content that has been created by its audience, its society. Facebook, MySpace, LinkedIn, and Twitter are forms of social media as the content is created by their members.  Although you may not work for the search engines or social media sites, you are helping to create their content and culture. How amazing and powerful is that? Wow!

So the next time you sit down and tweak your profile, post a blog, or add a comment think about the tremendous step that you are taking in expressing yourself to the world. It is indeed much bigger than your 140-character tweet!

Networking is the New Revolution!

thenetwork__.jpg

Here are some of the reasons why networking is growing at lightning speed:

The ability to express yourself.

Connecting to others locally and globally.

Connecting with people you may typically may not get a chance to talk to.

The economy crisis leads more people to post their profile and resumes on line in order to look for work, switch careers, and/or promote what they have to offer.

Higher prices lead to staying home more which means more time so it helps to beat boredom.

Networking sites are usually free to use.

Networking sites come in many formats. They offer a wide variety of applications, allowing users to be able to add profiles, photos, blogs, articles, classified ads, upload videos, and much more.

Joining different groups of interest has also made networking such a hit.

There are many more reasons why networking has become the new revolution but there’s not enough room in this blog. Here are some of the most popular networking sites according to InsideCRM:
  1. LinkedIn: LinkedIn is a popular networking site where alumni, business associates, recent graduates and other professionals connect online.
  2. Ecademy: Ecademy prides itself on “connecting business people” through its online network, blog and message-board chats, as well as its premier BlackStar membership program, which awards exclusive benefits.
  3. Focus: Focus is a business destination where business professionals can help each other with their purchase and other business decisions by accessing research and peer expertise. Most importantly, Focus provides open, quality information for all businesses that is freely available, easily accessible, and community powered.
  4. YorZ: This networking site doubles as a job site. Members can post openings for free to attract quality candidates.
  5. Xing: An account with networking site Xing can “open doors to thousands of companies.” Use the professional contact manager to organize your new friends and colleagues, and take advantage of the Business Accelerator application to “find experts at the click of a button, market yourself in a professional context [and] open up new sales channels.”
  6. FacebookFacebook is no longer just for college kids who want to post their party pics. Businesses vie for advertising opportunities, event promotion and more on this social-networking site.
  7. Care2: Care2 isn’t just a networking community for professionals: It’s touted as “the global network for organizations and people who Care2 make a difference.” If your business is making efforts to go green, let others know by becoming a presence on this site.
  8. Gather: This networking community is made up of members who think. Browse categories concerning books, health, money, news and more to ignite discussions on politics, business and entertainment. This will help your company tap into its target audience and find out what they want.
  9. MEETin.org: Once you’ve acquired a group of contacts in your city by networking on MEETin.org, organize an event so that you can meet face-to-face.
  10. Tribe: Cities like Philadelphia, Boston, San Francisco, New York and Chicago have unique online communities on tribe. Users can search for favorite restaurants, events, clubs and more.
  11. Ziggs: Ziggs is “organizing and connecting people in a professional way.” Join groups and make contacts through your Ziggs account to increase your company’s presence online and further your own personal career.
  12. Plaxo: Join Plaxo to organize your contacts and stay updated with feeds from Digg, Amazon.com, del.icio.us and more.
  13. NetParty: If you want to attract young professionals in cities like Boston, Dallas, Phoenix, Las Vegas and Orlando Fla., create an account with the networking site NetParty. You’ll be able to connect with qualified, up-and-coming professionals online, then meet them at a real-life happy-hour event where you can pass out business cards, pitch new job openings and more.
  14. Networking For Professionals: Networking For Professionals is another online community that combines the Internet with special events in the real world. Post photos, videos, résumés and clips on your online profile while you meet new business contacts.

You’re an amazing person with a lifetime of experiences, skills, and talents to share. But if these qualities are not shared or properly displayed, the world may never know. No matter where you are in life and what your goals may be, people are the most important resource to help you meet your goals and dreams. Others need you, as well, in reaching their needs and wants.

This is why networking is so important. But only the right type of networking and not the ones that lead you to frustration, spending needless time, effort, and money. Genuine, positive, and mutual connections and relations should be the focus when networking. In other words, relational-business connections should be the goal as it is the balance between social and business networking. For example, if your connections are strictly business, then this may work a few times or temporarily but approaching someone with a business-only approach won’t be effective in the long run. In fact, it usually is a quick way to make a not-so-good first impression. You know these types of connections by their immediate e-mail or chat, “Hi. Check out my website and get a 20% discount if you purchase within the next seven days.” People tend to want to flee from the all-business “introduction”. Like in reality, many people, when approached with a sudden sales pitch, want to find a way to get out of there fast, make excuses, or if they do make a purchase, it’s very unlikely that they’ll buy again or tell their friends.

On the other end of the spectrum, those who are too sociable and/or mix too much social networking with business tend to run people off due to their lack of professionalism and unclear goals. You can spot these people by their profiles, websites, and conversations. “Hey, how ya doin’? So I have this commercial fishing business and, well, you should hang out with me some time and we can throw back a few beers, and, hey, check out the prices of each trip at my website.” Their pages and sites contain a mix of personal photos, some professional links, some scanned letters from loved ones, and their posted comments (whether written by them or posted by others) are extremely varied. This is not effective when trying to conduct business and to network for professional purposes.

A balance between the two (business and social networking) which I shall call “relational business” networking provides the best approach for positive, genuine, and mutual connections. These connections are similar to the way we successfully conduct business in the real world. A little bit of getting to know someone on a personal level mixed in with talks of business projects and collaborations. A conversation about a possible conference blended with a hint of humor. You get the point as it’s just natural and logical. In other words, just be REAL.

So go out and network to your heart’s content but keep it genuine, positive, and mutual. Then you will find much success through your networking efforts.

Jobs are at an all-time decline. Business Networking is at an all-time rise.

newsTwo million in the USA lost their jobs since March 2009. This brings the total up to 5.1 million people having lost their jobs since the beginning of 2008, reports CNNMoney.com. This is the highest unemployment rate that the United States has seen in 25 years. The unemployment rate has climbed to a staggering 8.5%. The industries hit the hardest are manufacturing and construction. The amount of hours for the work week has also been cut in all industries. People have to turn to different methods in order to look for work, promote themselves, and their businesses, and to increase sales. This is one reason why networking has become so popular. Networking is not just for socializing anymore. By networking with others, one can reach his or her goals faster. There is only so much time and energy in which an individual has to accomplish things. Yet if he or she has a network of people with whom he or she can turn to, then much more can be accomplished. Business networking is seeing an enormous rise and the popularity of business networking sites have soared dramatically. Yet many still fail to understand networking. The biggest problem is that most people begin with a first impression –their profile — that is incomplete or even nonexistent. Having a profile that truly reveals the personable you and the professional you is the first impression that you send out to the world. This is the one chance that you have to get the world to take notice and to take action. So don’t blow it. Make that profile work for you! Don’t be shy to celebritize you. You do it all the time naturally. You did it when you landed your jobs before using your resume and/or phone calls and interviews. It’s not different online other than the fact that it is called a profile. Make that profile completely reveal who you truly are!
