Remember Ricky Martin? He’s the superstar singer from Puerto Rico who made a splash into American pop culture with his Livin’ La Vida Loca.
While watching Ricky Martin be interviewed by Larry King recently, I was struck by his take on social media. He said that Twitter and Facebook are the mediums he uses to get feedback from his audience on new material he is working on and how valuable that is.
For example . . . . .
Ricky Martin revealed that if he was working on a new song, he would post a little snippet on Twitter or Facebook and get people’s reactions. It was always immediate and useful. If Ricky Martin is dipping into social media for feedback for his upcoming multi-million dollar musical releases, don’t you think you should be too?
Sharing is caring. . . .
If you are creating a new product, don’t be afraid to share a tidbit with your followers. Not only will you get invaluable info but they will love you for it because you included them in the process. And, they’ll be on the lookout for that sensational new product they know is coming down the pipe.
So, you’ve created interest with a sneak peek, made them part of it, and gathered relevant information for yourself. Pretty clever, don’t you think?
Any interaction you have with your target market is always good. Take the plunge! Start the conversation and you’ll quickly find that social media is one of the easiest and simplest ways for you to connect.
Go on, give it a whirl! Make your biz a superstar sensation! If it works for Ricky Martin, it’ll work for you too!
