Grow your social capital with good netiquettes...
“Conversations among the members of your marketplace happen whether you like it or not. Good marketing encourages the right sort of conversations.” – Seth Godin
Old rules of netiquette apply to social media, whether you’re blogging, tweeting, commenting in a LinkedIn group, or posting to your Facebook stream.
Keeping these points in mind keeps your social capital high:
Be subtle, not self-promotional in your posts: Avoid blatant advertising.
Content is king: Whatever the venue, freely contribute real information. Share resources, connections, and links with other members of the community.
Avoid using ALL CAPITAL letters in any post: It’s considered “shouting.”
Avoid e-mailing individuals directly: This advice applies unless they have requested a personal response.
Respect your audience: Avoid negative comments, name-calling, and expletives. “If you can’t say something nice, don’t say anything at all.”
Expressing views or sharing feedback with friends is imbibed in human nature and hence, it becomes very important for marketers to facilitate that conversation in order to drive business value.
