Social networking is an imperative and extremely powerful tool in today’s business. December’s issue of Baseline Magazine ranked “Social Networking” #6 for “Top 10 Trends in IT for 2009”. I wasn’t surprised to see that “Software as a Service (SaaS)” came in at #1. If you haven’t taken advantage of social networking tools to keep in touch with other business contacts and partners, you should! If you’re already a Method user, well you’re ahead of the game and are already using a SaaS product, nicely done!
Case in point – I have been actively using my LinkedIn account to touch base with other consultants, QuickBooks ProAdvisors, QuickBooks Intuit Solution Providers (ISP’s) and other SaaS users. It really is amazing how many people you can meet and how quickly your connections can add up.
In mid-January, through a common group on LinkedIn, I came across a posting by Joe Woodard regarding a conference for accounting professionals, QuickBooks ProAdvisors and Intuit Solution Providers (ISP’s). I connected with Joe and we found out that we both had attended the QuickBooks Enterprise Solutions Conference in September but managed to somehow miss each other. We started to discuss Method and how it might help to solve some of his clients’ business needs. Joe and I were so excited about working together that he invited me to attend his “Scaling New Heights” conference being held in Atlanta, GA in May, 2009. Had it not been for LinkedIn, Joe and I may have never met.
Joe has invited me to lead a webinar on Method as part of his webinar series to promote the Scaling New Heights Conference. The best part is, the webinars are free! Free is always nice, especially in times like these.

I’m very excited about visiting Atlanta in May for this conference. I may be learning a thing or two from Joe after attending some of his classes.
Happy networking =)
