As a Networking Expert/Coach, I developed Referrals Unlimited Network (2005) and recently launched Contacts to Connection! In walking my talk, I have more than 12,300 first-level connections in LinkedIn and approximately 1,500 “friends” on FaceBook and more than 5,000 followers on Twitter! I know you do need the numbers before you can accumulate quality connections, because not every connection will be a good one for you. My passion is helping “Main Street Businesses” (offline) get known, liked and trusted in the online world. I coach these businesses in the art of social networking and social marketing. Connections + Conversations + Communication + Caring = Creating Relationships = More Clients + More Customers and ultimately, more Cash!
Through my networking, I help others learn to do what I did, helping to save them lots of time and heartache, by teaching them how to network efficiently and effectively. The knowledge I share as a Networking Expert/Coach comes from real-life experience; my passion is in developing relationships and teaching others to do the same. I have fine-tuned my networking and netweaving skills by operating my own business since 1993 and “practicing what I preach.” Building relationships with others is the first step in building a social circle or a circle of influence. When others know, like and trust you, your name will be remembered when the possibility of a referral arises. Who would you rather work with . . . someone who was referred to you by a personal friend or connection or someone you found in a directory, with no background available for use in hiring.
Public speaking is one of the ways that I market my practice. I am available as a speaker for various groups online and offline. Please visit my website at http://www.contactstoconnections (currently being constructed) or at my blog at http://www.CarolConnectsPeople.com to learn more. Both sites are currently undergoing some upgrades so check back often.
