Social networking is the easiest way to connect without leaping onto a plane, train or automobile. On Facebook, LinkedIn or Twitter you can connect via the virtual world of social media that is time saving and cost efficient.
If you want to get real and supercharge your networks then sometimes you have to make that extra effort to attend conferences where the movers and shakers are hanging out and speaking.
It is the face to face contact that can often help you connect that opens up a world of opportunities that can take your business and marketing to the next level.
In 2013 there are a multitude of events that include conferences on social media, search engine strategies, content marketing, email, affiliate marketing and much more that can facilitate relationships, educate and provide insights into your industry.
This year I will be attending the Social Media Marketing World in San Diego and I am looking forward to catching up with many people that I know via Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn.
