The Tipping Point Of Business And Social Media Networking

by Dr Mark D. Yates LinkedIn Black Belt POWER Networker

“Irrespective of your business background, some business networking groups are profitable gold mines just waiting for prospectors looking to mine for business leads, new and increased business opportunities and added value business contacts.”

In his Tipping Point book, Malcolm Gladwell states that trends related to social behaviour can spread through populations like an epidemic of contagious disease. When this spread takes on ‘wildfire proportions’ they converge in the tipping point.

All epidemics have tipping points and few can argue that business networking has hit this tipping point, so it’s wise to know the people involved in business social networking. At its core are five main groups of business people, Connectors, Mavens, Salespeople, Power Alpha-Hunters & Laggards. Each of these groups play a pivotal role in spreading the ‘word of mouth message’ required to drive a business trend to its tipping point.

For a message to provide forward momentum to others, it has to be dynamic, meaningful, memorable and most of all the message has to be able to make an impact. And the business networking message cannot be any simpler.

Business networking works…

 because more business connections = more business opportunities.

Ask any business marketing agent what the one most consistent form of successful marketing is, and he or she will probably tell you that ‘word of mouth appeals’ rein above the flood of other marketing strategies. In fact many I’ve consulted believe this is the only kind of persuasion most business interested people respond to anymore.

In business networking it’s usually the Mavens who spread the word.

Mavens are people who accumulate knowledge and seek to solve other people’s problems. But they are typically extremely proactive. They work hard to find out what the best deal is, & then they want to tell others about it.

Mavens have the knowledge, ability and drive to start viral word of mouth epidemics.

Contrary to popular belief, it is not just the Connectors who drive business social networking. Although by definition a Connector has to have lots of contacts, without the assistance of Mavens & Salespeople, a Connector will most likely fail to drive the trend to the tipping point.

Connectors are very good at spreading the word of mouth message identified by the Mavens.

Gladwell states: “The essence of salespeople is that on some level they cannot be resisted.” The very best salespeople can build a level of trust and rapport in five to ten minutes that most people would take half an hour to do.

Power Alpha-Hunters and Laggards also help drive the message & trend towards the tipping point.

Given the lack of time in most business networking circles, this is a critical factor to drive a trend to the tipping point.

All the above may be useful information, but how does the average business interested person begin to get a return on their business networking investment? Well in some respect it’s like the lottery, i.e. you have to be in it, to win it.

I believe the two key factors for success are:

1: To spread your own message, which others recognise has the potential to impact them or their business clients or customers.

2: Embrace business networking now. Don’t procrastinate and make the mistake of inadvertently becoming a business networking Laggard. i.e. someone who sees no urgent reason to change their business marketing modus operandi.

There is a maxim in business advertising, that an advertisement or message has to be seen six times before anyone will remember it. Keep your business message simple and memorable, because unless prospective customers and clients remember what you tell them, why would they ever change their behaviour and buy your products or services?

I have two simple messages I constantly promote via LinkedIn.

Both of these memorable messages promote me and my linkedin sales and business on linkedin business brand.

1: I am the number 1 Business Growth Specialist & #1 Business Development Director & #1 LinkedIn Expert from 340+ million LinkedIn consultancy members and I can help you grow your business on linkedin fast.

2: I am the British American Security Expert. I hold the number 1 positions on LinkedIn for Security Director, Security Expert & Security Consultant and I can help you grow your business on linkedin fast.

It doesn’t matter whether you love or loath business networking; you would be foolish to dismiss it out of hand. Especially if you are looking for personal growth or growth from new business on LinkedIn, or increased LinkedIn sales of your products or services. END OF ARTICLE:

by Mark D. Yates LinkedIn Black Belt POWER Networker
1. 2015 will be the year of the ‘linkedin International Networker’ because business social networking is spreading with wild fire proportions & it continues to defy the global economic downturn.

Link Business Marketing LinkedIn Consultancy, Linkedin Training, LinkedIn Speaker & Hire A LinkedIn Expert Service TIP:

We are beyond the Early Adopter stage, so 2015-2016 is the time to proactively embrace business social networking before you miss out on all the added value business benefits it offers, like more linkedin consultancy sales and increased business via linkedin training.

  1. As LinkedIn enters 2015, it’s still experiencing huge growth. It’s now signing up two new accounts every second.

Link Business Marketing LinkedIn Consultancy, Linkedin Training, LinkedIn Speaker & Hire A LinkedIn Expert Service TIP:

Finish and/or update your LinkedIn consultancy profile TODAY, as LinkedIn training experts advise this is precisely what your proactive business competitors will be doing.

If you don’t know how, or you don’t have the time, then contact a specialist LinkedIn training provider, or an expert LinkedIn speaker to provide you with help. To hire a LinkedIn expert for LinkedIn consultancy advice and LinkedIn training skills are not as expensive as you might think.

  1. More connections = more opportunities. To increase your business on linkedin many linkedin training experts advise you need to connect with as many linkedin power networkers as possible – as soon as possible.

Most people are granted 3,000 Linkedin invitations when they first join Linkedin. Don’t be afraid of asking linkedin consultancy power networkers, linkedIn training specialists or a LinkedIn speaker for linkedin tips & linkedin advice. And don’t be afraid to ask them to connect with you as most of them are screaming out for new LinkedIn consultancy connections.

Link Business Marketing LinkedIn Consultancy, Linkedin Training, LinkedIn Speaker & Hire A LinkedIn Expert Service TIP:

2015 – 2016 will see many more proactive LinkedIn networkers achieve ‘Power Networker’ status. 2013 – 2014 has identified several new Professional consultancy Linkedin Power Networkers who have carefully grown and nurtured global networks of professional business contacts, specifically to exploit the concept of more connections = more opportunities which really translates into more linkedin sales and business on linkedin.

  1. Ask your current & previous clients to post you a business recommendation on your LI profile page.

Link Business Marketing LinkedIn Consultancy, Linkedin Training, LinkedIn Speaker & Hire A LinkedIn Expert Service TIP:

At the very least you should have 3 linkedin consultancy or LinkedIn training recommendations, as this helps complete your linkedin profile. However linkedin speaker recommendations add credibility & kudos to your linkedin profile, so more is better, especially as many more business owners use linkedin as their first step in making a buying decision, many cite that many professional linkedin consultancy recommendations gives them increased buyer confidence in the Linkedin connection.

• 2012 maybe the year of the Dragon, but watch out for linkedin Black Belt POWER Networkers who eat Dragons for breakfast.

Link Business Marketing LinkedIn Consultancy, Linkedin Training, LinkedIn Speaker & Hire A LinkedIn Expert Service TIP:

The linkedin group of Black Belt POWER Networkers consists of the next wave of linkedin Power networkers all looking to leverage their extensive list of business contacts.

If you have over 500 linkedin connections you automatically qualify to join this proactive LinkedIn consultancy group.

Business social networking follows the adage of: ‘use it or lose it’. 2015 – 2016 will present many opportunities for more linkedin consultancy sales, especially sales of business products & services, but if you don’t proactively use linkedin to generate new business on linkedin, you will simply lose the added value benefits it brings.

I leave you and your clients with the following thought. If your business has not increased profitably, & you’ve been a linkedin training or LinkedIn speaker member for the last 12 months, then you are not maximising your full linkedin consultancy potential for increased linkedin sales and exponential growth from new business on linkedin.

6 Types Of Professional Business Networker. Which Type Are You?

Choose one from categories 1 to 3 & one from categories 4 to 6 to identify your specific type.

1: Connector:

What makes a business networker a Connector? In his Tipping Point book, Malcolm Gladwell states. The most obvious criterion is that Connectors know lots of people. By keeping a foot in so many different business sectors they have the effect of bringing them all together.

2: Maven:

Is a Yiddish word which means one who accumulates knowledge. Business marketplaces depend on up to date information and many economists believe that the people with the most information i.e. the Mavens are the most important.

Gladwell states that what sets Mavens apart is that once they figure out how to get the deal, they want to tell you about it as well. This makes Mavens very effective networkers. Many linkedin experts and linkedIn training specialists are Mavens.

3: Salespeople:

A true linkedin sales networking specialist can build a level of trust and rapport in a fraction of the time it takes most other people to achieve. This is an important consideration when considering linkedin sales from new business on linkedin.

LinkedIn Networkers 2011. Quantcast * breaks down visitor traffic into three categories:

4: Passers By:

users who visit a site or interact with media once per month. The 66% of LinkedIn ‘Passers By’ account for 24% of visits to the LinkedIn web site.

5: Regulars: those who visit a site or interact with media more than once but less than 30 times per month. The 33% of LinkedIn ‘Regulars’ account for 51% of visits to the LinkedIn web site.

6: Addicts: those that interact with a site 30 or more times per month. The 1% of LinkedIn ‘Addicts’ account for 25% of visits to the LinkedIn web site.

I’m a Connector/Addict. Which type are you?

12 Mafia Business Networking Tips For Growing Your LinkedIn Connections

Just a light-hearted reference for increasing your linkedin network connections

Quotations Taken From The Godfather Movie – Don Corleone Family

1. “Keep your friends close and your enemies closer.” The Godfather Don Corleone.

In professional linkedin consultancy business networking your friends are your business connections and your enemies are your competitors. LinkedIn training allows you the opportunity to keep your friends close and your enemies closer.

2. “Just when I thought I was out, they keep dragging me back in again.” The Godfather Michael Corleone.

Every time I think I have completed my multi business sector global business network as a LinkedIn speaker and I step out of the sheer intensity of Power Networking, a client from a new business sector pulls me back in again.

3. “The promise is, the deal will be so good we can’t refuse.” Sonny Corleone.

As a proactive LinkedIn networker you will be inundated with e-mails offering you all kinds of fantastic business deals which the author suggests are so good you can’t refuse them. Guess what? Most scams are based on the premise of greed and sold on the basis that you shouldn’t refuse the deal.

4. “Without your father’s political contacts and personal influence, the Corleone business loses half its strength.” Tom Hagan Consigliere to The Godfather.

If you are not seriously connected to major contacts and/or people of influence on Linkedin then you should connect with as many Linkedin consultancy POWER networkers as possible. Find many in the Linkedin speaker Black Belt POWER Networkers group.

5. “My business methods are as safe as these things can be, about five per cent loss. The risk is nothing, the profits enormous.” Sollozzo Turkish Gangster arch enemy of the Godfather.

As you build your Linkedin consultancy contact base you will be contacted by many unscrupulous spammers offering you unlimited earnings from joining their outrageous business schemes. Guess what? If it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck, then there’s a very high probability it’s a duck.

6. “I’ll make him an offer he can’t refuse.” The Godfather Don Corleone.

If you are going to stick your neck out and offer you business contacts an offer they can’t refuse, then make sure it’s a genuine offer, otherwise your Linkedin consultancy business contacts will desert you in their droves.

7. “The Godfather never asks a second favor when he has been refused the first. Understood?” Tom Hagan Consigliere to The Godfather.

It’s a sad, but true fact that most inexperienced Linkedin training networkers take far more than they give, and it is this single factor that prevents high volumes of people connecting with them on Linkedin consultancy.

Occasionally I’ll ask a business favour of someone on Linkedin. If they refuse or ignore my request I’ll flag them as a ‘negative’ contact and never ask them for another favour.

8. “I need a friend who has people in high places.” Sollozzo Turkish Gangster arch enemy of the Godfather.

See point 4 above.

9. “Never let anyone outside the family know what you are thinking.” The Godfather Don Corleone.

Every professional Linkedin speaker and Power Networker I know works to their own carefully crafted business networking growth plan. These plans contain ideas, tactics, goals and key performance indicators. Many Linkedin training Power Networkers belong to elite niche groups or families. I’ve never known any Linkedin Power Networker share their growth plans with anyone outside their family.

10. “It will cost.” Tom Hagan Consigliere to The Godfather.

All forms of professional business networking cost you something. Linkedin consultancy has cost me time, effort, energy as well as finance. If you want to create and leverage a professional Linkedin speaker or LinkedIn training business network, then these are the foundation blocks of your Investment.

11. “Blood is a big expense.” Sollozzo Turkish Gangster arch enemy of the Godfather.
Ever heard the phrase, ‘sweating blood?’ If you have aspirations of building your professional Linkedin speaker network to between 25,000 to the Linkedin consultancy maximum of 30,000, then be prepared to sweat buckets of blood on a daily basis.

12. “We’ve known each other for years, but this is the first time you come to me for help.” The Godfather Don Corleone.

Most professional Linkedin consultancy business networkers fail to fully leverage their business contacts. The real reason a Linkedin speaker Networker operates is to help others 90% of the time, with a 10% expectation of a return. Never be afraid to ask your Linkedin training contacts for linkedIn free stuff, LinkedIn training help, linkedin consultancy tips, hire a LinkedIn expert advice, LinkedIn case studies or information about linkedin merchandise. You will often be pleasantly surprised.
