Part of your success is your online presence, which can augment your local, regional, and international standing. This includes things like having a website, writing a blog (and contributing to other blogs), and being on LinkedIn, Twitter, and other social media sites. There’s a lot to know about social media and making a splash, but the basic rules are:

  • Nobody knows what’s best, so be sure to do something.
  • Do a lot. Don’t try just one thing.
  • Be friendly.
  • Provide good content to your readers and followers.
  • Share!
