Developing an Internet Resources List is an important tool for Social Networking. When you meet new contacts online, adding value, offering solutions to challenges, and generally helping others with information is the fastest way to build relationships. Having an Internet Resources List on hand makes that a simple and easy process. Not having one is sure to result in missed opportunities.
Everyone sooner or later finds themselves with a chance to make a strong impression by pointing a newly acquired contact toward a great tool or site. Then they anguish, racking their brain trying to remember that name or location of that site or that free program. It’s just part of the information overload we all face.
If you are aggressively tackling the Social Networking scene, you are connecting with new people every day. When you do have an opportunity to offer something you are certain to be remembered for, you can’t afford to squander your chance. But with so many new people and so many things to cram into your head, it’s easy to forget a web name or location. That’s why a resources list is so important.
Create a file, whether it’s on your computer, stored in your phone, or a hard copy. Every time you scour the web searching for answers and you find the ultimate solution, put the URL, the search terms you used to find it, and a brief description of your find into that file.
Then the next time you are chatting online and someone tells you of a need or challenge, you’ll instantly think of your Internet Resources List. The only thing you will have to worry about is- remembering where you put it.
