Last week my wife noticed that Home Depot was having a big spring sale on mulch. Since we had a lot of mulching needs, we were happy she found this information with 2 days left in the sale. It’s good to get a deal, especially when it involves buying something that you throw on the ground and let it rot.
Instead of privately enjoying her discovery, she decided to share this information. A quick Facebook update alerted all her gardening friends to this opportunity. One of her friends then did the same to her Facebook friends and before long there were a lot of people talking mulch and buying it on sale at Home Depot.
It’s so easy these days to bring a little happiness to others. Social networks have given us a vehicle for providing others with information that they will value, requiring only the smallest effort from us. Of course, we have to be on the lookout for useful information. Then we need to remember to share it.
Building a network with lots of contacts isn’t in itself useful. Adding value to that network is. Sure you have accounts on LinkedIn and Facebook. Maybe you are way edgy and even use Twitter. Want to bring these tools to life? Find a way to add value.
If you think this little article added value to your day, you can start by sharing a link to it on your social networks. Do it now before you forget.
