12 Simple Tips For Virtual Networking With Members of Facebook Groups: It Doesn’t Matter If You’re An Introvert or Too Shy to Network Face-to-Face, Networking Online Is Quick and Easy…

Even if you’re an introvert or too shy to go to in-person networking events in your community… you can easily participate in Facebook group networking activities online.

Virtual networking with members of Facebook groups doesn’t have to be hard or time-consuming. A lot of it is just being yourself and connecting with people. It’s just like what you do when you’re building relationships in real life.

Here are 12 simple tips for virtual networking with members of Facebook groups:

  1. Share useful and relevant stuff. Share funny stuff that members of the group would enjoy. Share advice and tips useful for other entrepreneurs. Share discounts on industry events as well as widely-used products and services when you come across them.
  2. Respond to questions. Ask relevant questions.
  3. Be supportive, generous and helpful when you reply to questions. By helping others, you can show your expertise. By being supportive, you can build trust and credibility with potential customers as well as potential referral sources.
  4. Read and respond to comments. If you don’t have a lot of time, you can respond using emojis 😊.
  5. Be likeable and friendly. Be genuine and authentic. Be yourself and people will like you for who you are.
  6. Attend events, including online workshops and webinars. It’s a great way to connect and get to know the members of the group.
  7. Show up and participate regularly. Post and comment at least twice a week. This is a great way to increase your visibility within the group… and it only takes a few minutes.
  8. Don’t try to impress. You don’t have to know the answer to everything. It’s fine to be a newbie. Show that you’re willing to learn. When you ask questions and ask for help, you will actually give others the opportunity to shine. It can be annoying to deal with a know-it-all. If you don’t know the answer to a problem, point to someone who does.
  9. Mind your own business when problems are personal.
  10. Follow the rules for the group. Being hateful and obnoxious can get you kicked out of the group.
  11. Be courteous and nice. Just because you aren’t talking face-to-face doesn’t mean you shouldn’t have manners. Don’t be rude or put other people down just because they don’t have the same opinion as you.
  12. Try to have fun. Networking should be simple. Don’t make it complicated.

Virtual networking with Facebook groups is just like any other networking you do for your business. It should be professional, but with your personality. It should be courteous and simple.

By networking online, you can get to know fellow entrepreneurs, build relationships and connections… WITHOUT leaving home… WITHOUT spending a lot of time.
