Yesterday I shared the 7 types of wrong people in social media to stay away from. I got feedback requesting the type of people to follow. Here are the 3 Types of people to connect with on social media:

1) The first type of person to connect with on social media is the Influencers.

Who are Influencer?

 Statistically, only about 1% of the social media users are influencers. They like to start conversations. Their posts are widely read and broadly shared. They are capable of influencing not only the people they know, but also people they don’t know. They belong to the major social networks—Facebook, Twitter, Google Plus and LinkedIn. They are typically the trendsetters and If they know you and care about you, they will help you achieve your goals. If you don't feel comfortable asking Influencers help in public, send them a private message. They understand how you feel because they were once in your shoes. They are great a starting Facebook Groups, starting trends and promoting fundraiser events. They understand it is not about them.

Influencers are like your city Mayor on social media. Good Influencers to connect with are those from your city and your profession.

2) The next type of person to connect with on social media is the Engager. The Engager makes up 5% of the people on social media and they act like the broadcasters. They're great at connecting with Influencers and broadcasting post and tweets. They're also good at generating their own post, sharing information and engaging in conversation. Engagers like to collaborate on ideas. Engagers are like the city council and school board members in your city. Good Engagers to connect with are those from your city and your profession.


3) The third type of person to connect with on social media is your Target Audience. Who is your audience? Your audience is your customers, past customers, referral partners, people from your city, people from your market area, close friends and family.


I hope this post will help you become more successful with social media. By connecting with the right people, you will find that social media will not be a time waster and will in fact help your business grow.
