Putting the “Social” into social media: online and offline

Sunday, May 30th, 2010

Ya gotta love the Internet!

It’s nothing short of a Godsend for those who dream of working from home: Think stay-at-home parents, those with transportation challenges and the self-employed, such as yours truly. 

It can be a dream come true
Where else can you set up a virtual business and do business with anyone in your city, country or on the planet without ever having to leave the comfort of your own home?  It can be a dream come true. 

But what happens when . . .
But what happens when doing business requires you to be social – and I’m not talking Facebook or Twitter.  The social I’m referring to is about face-to-face communications; carrying on real-time conversations with real people in real life.  It may even mean visiting a prospect’s office to demonstrate and persuade why your product/service is best, or giving a presentation to upper management to close the sale.  Or – the horror! – giving a speech to an auditorium full of people.

Hire a communications coach
For those instances, it pays to hire a communications coach. Or at the very least, hear one speak about the art of communication.  As I mentioned in a previous post, I’ll be doing a presentation at the MagNet Conference in Toronto later this week and, if you’re attending MagNet, I want to rcommend one of my fellow presenters. 

Learn to communicate better
You can learn to communicate your message better – and “Say It With Power” at MagNet from one of Toronto’s best communications coaches, Thomas Moss.  He has a unique approach to helping people overcome their fear of public speaking.  You may want to check out his session.  And you can check out the entire MagNet program at http://www.magazinescanada.ca/magnet/index.php
