I’ve blogged before about how social media can make the world smaller and friendlier, and I’ve even gone so far as to say that social media was made for pastors. While I came to social media kicking and screaming, by consistently spending just 5-8 minutes a day nurturing conversations and connections I’ve seen some amazing results. I’ve made wonderful connections with people all over the world – including Africa and the UK – who share a common vision.
I used to think that the only way you could relate to people was face-to-face. Do you still stand by this “old school” attitude? I invite you to venture into social media with me and try the waters. Just a note that if your only goal on social media to get business, you’ll probably be disappointed. Your first job on social media is connecting and relating, and then out of that relationship-building people are drawn to find out more about what you do.
