The season is upon us...if we have a business we are looking for and thinking about ways to market same.

If we are on the shopping end of the season...and who isn't ?  Then we are looking for good buys, great products, and the perfect gift to compliment that perfect person.

Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Tobri, RYZE....and so many other social sites are brimming with hundreds of businesses...large and does one zero in and know the best place to spend our time and our dollars.

Well, from my personal assessment , knowledge gained through years of networking travels-this is what I've ended up with.  Do claim it for your own, try it, then share it...

Pay attention to the connections you make. Ask yourself -why do I need this connection, and what can I contribute to the other side. If, you don't have good feedback on these two no doubt should pass.

Once a connection is offered/accepted, consider it a commitment, keep in touch, ask questions, learn about the person and the business.....then file it away for later needs, share it with others when the need presents an opening.

This is the season to go back over all the special connections we have made over the last year and include as many as possible in our holiday options for shopping.

When we don't utilize the businesses that we connect with...then it makes networking a bit of wasted time and effort...yours and mine.

Looking forward to a happy and eventful holiday season~

I trust the same for you.
