• What to wear to a Social Media Buffet
1. Unlike formal buffets – Wear what you want! Sweats, shorts and t-shirt, and my personal favorite – pajamas!
• The first byte to Tasting the Internet…Facebook
1. A great place to begin along with more than 200 million other people
2. Make it personal. Establish you as a person and as you introduce your business people will want to know more about what you do, because you have taken the time to know them
3. It’s all about the relationship. Get to know people, be interested in them, chat with them about their business and how it’s going
4. Build a strong presence. Ultimately it is about building your business, but have fun along the way with all the great new friends you have.
• Adding other Social Media sites onto your plate (Twitter, LinkedIn, YouTube)
1. Twitter is the currently fastest growing SM site. It’s an incredible tool that is easily used
1. Got a blog? Set up a Twitter feed for it.
2. LinkedIn is more professional, with less “fluff” like photos, games, etc. But it is a strong SM site made up of groups and discussions that you can join in.
3. Got a training session or workshop scheduled? Get a Flip Camera and interview the participants as they leave to get their feedback. Makes great testimonials.
• The Main EntrĂ©es - Blog and Article marketing
1. Blogging is a Hot area for online business success. It is your private forum to discuss anything you like. Search Engines love blogs because they are so interactive
2. Article marketing ranks right up there with blogging. You can quickly become an expert of your topic by writing some articles and submitting them to article submission sites
• The Cherry On Top! – Cross-linking all your social media sites
1. No one has time to visit every social media site they belong to, so by cross-linking and cross-promoting them you keep your content fresh and interesting without killing yourself to keep up.
