The team at Business Wire is no different. We looked at our best practices to help empower you with 13 tips to make you a better communicator in 2013.
1. Commit to commenting. Stop being a social media voyeur. Be active by “liking” and commenting on posts you read. After all, the comments can be as interesting as the posts; many people read them and they’re a good way to make connections.
2. Give before you ask. No matter what service you provide, even the well-intentioned invitation can be seen as a demand for time, effort, and attention. Take this tip from Chris Sacca, advisor to some of the top social media companies, “If you’re insightful and helpful, people will want to be around you.”
