Exciting news! On the 16th of March, Alicia Cowan and I will be joining forces once more to bring more people over to the world of social media – and ensuring that it’s used properly for business. We have both had a lot of success using these tools in our respective businesses – we even met each other on Twitter!
We are not advocating that social media marketing is there to replace face to face relationships, but rather that it is there to allow people to get to know you and your business in a soft and gentle way. Each of the platforms – Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Google Plus, and Pinterest – have their own unique behaviours and uses – and though Alicia and I use them all it’s not mandatory.
The rewards of social media are undisputable in our eyes, and this is because we apply a few simple behaviours but mostly we are just ourselves.
What’s really rewarding is that so many of our previous attendees have become super active on Social Media which is a great way to keep in touch with them.
Social media is another form of networking so it’s really a long term thing, which is great as it gives people time to practice, get to know people, and just let it become second nature.
