Are you puzzled by buzzwords like "web 2.0" and "social media?" If you’re like me, you probably cringed when you started hearing the buzz about MySpace, Facebook and Twitter. At first you could ignore it because it was just for ‘the kids.’
Not any longer. You can’t ignore social sites if you’re in business and want to get known, get leads, and be seen as a credible, trustworthy professional.
Fortunately people like my partner Denise paid attention to this phenomenon early on. Another person who was a skeptic ("Online networking is a total waste of time!") is Adam Urbanski, the Marketing Mentor. He’s become a raving fan.
Read the rest of this post if you’re a skeptic but have a gnawing feeling you really should find out the essentials of how to work things like Facebook into your marketing mix. To solve the problem about what to pay attention to and what to ignore, (and how to save time doing all this) there’s a series of free teleseminars you can register for at the end of this post.
When Adam picks up the ball and runs with it, you should pay attention. He’s presenting a series of four free teleseminars June 23-26, 2008 with experts who will tell you what you need to know, and how to use these new tools for business.
Here’s why he’s doing this:
*** What You Can Learn From Adam’s Story ***
He went from skeptic to raving evangelist in 4 weeks…for the longest time he was one of the most outspoken critics of Online Networking. He regularly voiced his opinion that it’s a total waste of time!
But in the last few weeks he’s transformed from a skeptic to a raving evangelist. Why?
Well, if you found new strategies that generated good results for you, wouldn’t you "become a believer" too?
If it were you who, within only four weeks, built a network of over 2,000 people, added hundreds of subscribers to your newsletter, created several profitable alliances with new referral partners, and sold products to your new online friends – wouldn’t you believe this strategy works?
And you know what the best part is?
That he was just getting started, and… truly… had no idea how to do it right at first. And he was only devoting very little of his time to get started!
But he also noticed BIG problems…
We’ve also noticed many of our colleagues have been networking online for much longer but they weren’t getting any good results.
In fact, we noticed professionals are making 2 big mistakes:
1) They believe it’s a new fad, a waste of time, and choose to ignore it (boy, can I relate to this one!)
2) They go about the wrong way – wasting time and actually hurting their professional image.
That’s why Adam decided to create Contacts to Contracts – a Social Media Networking training for professionals.
*** How to Get Better Results from Online Networking ***
Since he’s still learning, he asked four world’s leading authorities on the subject of Web 2.0, Social Media and Relationship Marketing to be interviewed by him.
We all agreed!
Here’s just some of what we’ve already agreed to reveal…
=> How to use social media to position yourself as the ultimate professional, stop cold calling, and get new clients to call you begging for your products and services.

=> Time saving tips from the pros. Learn how to keep in touch with hundreds, even thousands of people, without getting overwhelmed in just minutes per day.
And a lot more…
*** Basic Registration is FREE ***
You can participate in the live calls for free. If you would like to get the recordings and transcripts of each call you will have a chance to do so (for a small fee) after you register.
You also need to know there is a limit how many people can get on the live calls because the bridge line can accommodate only 200 people.
So I guess the best thing to do is register now.
