  13. 13. My Advice:Be There – you are not your target market (you go to the bank to get money and you go to social networks for people)Get Support – if you don’t, do it anywaySet Goals – apply them to each networkGet Help – crowdsource( everyone recruits), hiring managers, employeesMeasure – find out what works
