Today’s Social Media Breakfast was about how to use your network for referrals. Scott Plum from the MN Sales Institute was the presenter. Some of the topics were when to ask for a referral, how to ask for a referral and to create an incoming referral policy. One quick tip is when you receive a referral on LinkedIn, take the time to say thank you. There were monkeys on every table with a note saying “You Can’t Expect to Benefit from LinkedIn, If You Don’t Spend Time Monkeying Around”. So take some time to update your profile, connect with new people, and refer someone you are connected with if you have appreciated their service.
The topic for March’s Social Media Breakfast will be about Twitter. If you are interested in attending, click on the link for more information. http://smbcmn.com/
