Log Home Networking

A few months ago I talked a little about a phenomenon called ‘Social Networking‘ and I recommended that those of you in the industry explore the possibilities these sites offer.  See my earlier post here…

Anyway, I had an experience over the weekend that demonstrates how small our world really is and how a networking site can bring people (buyers and sellers) together.  I have an account and an informal Log Home Group on Facebook.  My account profile lists my personal information such as my name, where I live, hobbies, etc. 

Over the weekend I received an email via Facebook from a fellow I went to High School with (many) years ago.  I haven’t talked with this guy since we graduated and we ended up living 2,000 miles apart.

He found me – and we exchanged a few emails catching-up and he happened to mention that he and his bride were thinking about building or buying a log home.  I explained that I owned and edited the Log Home Directory and he replied that they had been using our directory as their ‘launch pad’ for their research.

How cool is that?  Someone I haven’t seen in decades is actually using our website to research companies and gather information to build his dream home.  THAT is an example of how these networking sites can benefit a business.  Although I am not a representative of a log home company, if I were… you can bet I’d have a good shot at making a sale… and rekindling an old friendship.

The message is simply that these “Social Networking’ sites offer businesses opportunities to connect with like-minded people who just might be looking for what you are selling.

Speaking of Networking…
