Every new industry has leaders.How do you become a leader? By starting conversations – by bringing relevant topics of discussion to light and getting others to talk about them… Creating engagement. Conversations can:
- Build authority
- Establish credibility
- Move and inspire people
- Improve your listening skills
- Sharpen your communication skills
- Develop connections
- Lead to business opportunities
- Provide ongoing real-life education money can’t buy, and much more…
Accepting Responsibility for Your VoiceBy participating in conversations on the social web, you accept responsibility for contributing to something bigger than yourself. So many people sit back and let fear prevent them from accepting that responsibility. You can't excel in
business or anything for that matter with low self-esteem and an unwillingness to accept responsibility. Responsible people are a highly sought after commodity. Businesses are built on these. Getting Started in the Conversation When you start to communicate with others on a regular basis, you begin to discover your voice and contributing value to conversations becomes second nature. The key is to just get started buy leaving a comment on a blog, responding to a
tweet, jumping into a Linkedin discussion or just by simply interacting with friends on Facebook. You have to start somewhere. Here, there, everywhere you come across something of interest that prompts an opinion, share it liberally with others. That’s where and how conversations can begin to enhance your social media experience. The conversations that are happening everyday on Twitter, Facebook or your blog – is where all possibility resides. Everything you’ve imaged that can happen on the social web is just one conversation away.
Becoming a Social Media Leader Social media leaders create conversations that are relevant to the communities they serve. They bring people together, increase engagement, inspire commitment and encourage accountability. They understand that everyone has a voice and
that everyone can contribute value to others. There is no one voice that is shaping the future of the social web. There are communities of voices that are shaping the best practices, applications and strategies to continue to grow the industry. All of this is made possible by conversations and the people who lead them. Are you participating in conversations that are shaping the social web?
