Thanks for visiting! I hope You Enjoy My Blog….
I began my online networking exploration on Ryze, a new social web site which was, along with LinkedIn, one of the first social networking and business networking sites.

It wasn’t until 2006, after I’d already joined a number of additional social networking websites, that I learned that these sites were the precursors of a much larger social media phenomenon. I also learned about the importance of blogs.

Third BlogiversaryI launched this blog, Online Social Networking, in November 2007, and yes, I am celebrating my third blogiversary.

In Social Media One Bite at a Time and 7 Tips for Winning the Social Media Marathon, I discuss the social media mindset and some of the social media strategies I’ve found very helpful.

Building My Social Media and Web Presence


Here is a list of my 10 top strategies for building my social media and web presence:

1. Partnership – Building relationships though blogging, online social networking and social bookmarking sites.

2. Content – Writing and publishing well thought-out and occasionally useful articles on my two blogs.

3. Search Engine Optimization – Ongoing keyword research and SEO. 50% of all my web site traffic comes directly from search engines.

4. Diversification – Creating a presence on diverse social media sites and cultivating diverse web site traffic sources.

5. Innovation – Experimenting with many ideas, some worked out and others flopped while avoiding urges to follow the crowd.

6. Boldness – Haven’t been afraid to test the limits of social websites and social media strategies. Twitter removed @larrybrauner from their search results, Sphinn terminated my account, and Facebook sends me sweet little love messages when I become more ambitious than they like. All I can say is, “C’est la vie.” Meekness isn’t a good quality in a marketer.

7. Planning – Always researching and frequently reevaluating and refining my web marketing and branding plan. Flexibility must accompany social media and web marketing planning.

8. Attitude – Persevering, staying upbeat and focusing, even when I didn’t feel like it, such as when my Dad passed away last year, or when my search engine traffic dipped during this past summer.

9. Tools – Taking advantage of a variety of social media, SEO and web analytics tools.

10. Widgets – Integrating social media with my blogs through using website widgets.

Thank you for partnering with me and helping me all these years with my social media and web marketing efforts.
