Social Media is the buzz. The buzz for your business, that is!
Either you’re using it or your not.
Either you “get it” or you don’t.
Either you embrace it or you wish it would go away.
Newsflash: Social Media is not going away. If anything, it’s expanding!
I happen to be one of those people who thinks social media is the cat’s meow. I mean, I liked it in the beginning and I adore it now. The more it changes, the more I like it. The faster it moves, the quicker I move.
The fact is, it’s here to stay. In one form or another. The world wide web is where it’s at. (please excuse my incorrect English)
The other fact is, everybody doesn’t feel like I do about it. Several times a week, someone will tell me they don’t understand it at all. For some reason, I totally “get” it. Maybe because I’m a people person, maybe because I’m a marketer. Maybe a little of both. But I use it every single day and I don’t find it cumbersome or bothersome. I find it fun, exciting, fast-moving, and (here’s the part you’ll like) profitable.
How is social media profitable?
It creates relationships. Remember what we’ve said on that subject? Relationships create customers. Customers create income. You are interested now. Right?
The best way to learn social media when starting out is to take it slow. Begin with one of the big three (Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn) and take baby steps. Decide which one you want to learn first and begin.
How to get started. . . . .
First, you have to sign up. They are all free. (isn’t that great?) I realize social media can seem daunting at first so I am going to make it a little easier for you!
Beginning Thursday, June 24, I will be teaching a series of classes to help you get going.
The first series focuses on Twitter and the very first class is free. It will be loads of fun and you will have all the basics in place when we finish. Come along and enjoy the ride! You can register at the bottom of this post or click on the tab at the top of this page. It’s called “Tweet with Martha” and that’s exactly what you’ll be doing!
Looking forward to helping you out!
