Resist Isolation…There’s strength in connection

“Resist Isolation…There’s strength in connection!”

I just love this graphic! Connections often are unseen resources created by reaching out to those around you who share your values and space.

Reach out to someone today…after all, isn’t that what ‘social’ media is all about? 😉

Community connections strengthen you...

How Can I Help You Be More Successful in Your Marketing?

I help busy entrepreneurs set up step-by-step marketing systems.

What Marketing Improvement Would Be Worth $30 and One Hour to Have Completed?

Small companies tend to have more limited budgets. To help with that, I like to break down larger systems into their smaller components. This provides the opportunity for smaller companies to assemble their own customized marketing system in small steps, rather than having to risk a huge initial investment in time and money.

I’m putting together some new 60-minute online marketing workshops, so I’m looking to offer you the most help and value I can for an affordable price. I find that I’m able to offer even more value by leveraging my time in an online group setting.

In this workshop, I will actually walk you through a process so that, by the end of the hour, you will actually HAVE SOMETHING DONE AND IN PLACE. Learning new information is fun, but busy entrepreneurs sometimes just need to get things done, rather than just spending an hour and $30 learning about it, just to have to spend more time actually figuring out how to put your new knowledge into action. 😉

Which of these (choose as many as you like or add your own ‘Other’) do you need right now and would be worth $20-$30 to get done in a 60-minute online group workshop setting?

Steer clear of these 15 social media mistakes

Mistake 5 of 15… Not using a consistent voice.

Use a business’s Twitter account for business, not personal anecdotes. While unique, funny and chatty messages can make a Twitter account seem more human, getting into arguments, insulting other brands or advancing executives’ unrelated interests pushes the platform off-message and can create backlash.

But brands shouldn’t sound like robots, either. Repeatedly sending out the same messages can create ill will from consumers. The key is to find a happy middle ground where the brand’s voice is consistent, caring and human.

Are You Following the Social Media Rule of Thirds?

AUTHOR: Hootsuite

I’m great at #2, but think my #3 needs some work. 😉

Social Media Rule of Thirds

What is Social Media’s Rule of Thirds?

  • ⅓ of your social content promotes your business, converts readers, and generates profit.
  • ⅓ of your social content should surface and share ideas and stories from thought leaders in your industry or like-minded businesses.
  • ⅓ of your social content should be based on personal interactions and build your personal brand.
  1. Put your Pride Aside and Share Another Business’s Content
  2. Why is sharing outsider content by other businesses or thought leaders so important?
  3. Make Lists: Create lists of influencers, competitors, industry keywords and thought leaders
  4. Set up Streams: Multiple streams simplify your listening opportunities
  5. Use Multiple Re-Tweet Styles
  6. Getting personal on social media
  7. Listen and engage with your community
