Observations In Social Media
Lately I've been observing how different business are tapping into Social Media. I am a firm believer that Small Business Owners can learn a lot from Corporations and vice versa. It is so important that we find a formula that works and stick to it until a new formula comes along.
I discovered six ways Big Businesses are using Social Media:
Big businesses also use the best Social Media outlet for their target market. This is likely done through trial and error however, once they find out what works, they run with it. From Blogs to YouTube Channels to Apps, Big businesses are using Social Media to their advantage and so should you.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!
It's 2012 and everyone is frantically working to make sure that they make the most of this first quarter. Well the use of the word "frantically" may be a bit overdramatic but there is a little truth to the fact that as business owners we want to make sure that we capitalize on every fruitful business transaction that exists.
As it relates to social media, using your Facebook, Twitter and Youtube Channels, etc. can help you secure some very important business transactions. Your Social Media Sites can connect you with everyone from potential clients to future partners. They can even lure some of your old clients back and give you the opportunity to peek in on your competition.
I look forward to working with you this year to help connect you with all the key players that will bring your 2012 vision to fruition. I will be working hard to bring you the latest tips, updating your landing pages with new information and finding even better ways to turn your fans, followers, subscribers, etc. into loyal customers.

The Holiday Season is underway and it's a perfect time to tell people about your business through Social Media. Even though Christmas is just a few days away, there's still time to create a buzz about your products/services!
Choose random fans to give small gifts to and then on Christmas Day, give away a big gift like an Ipod Touch, Mp3 Player, Portable DVD Player or $50/$100 Gas Card. Build the excitement by announcing that there will be a big prize on Christmas Day.
FREE Gift Wrap
Invite your fans to your office & offer FREE Git Wrapping. While there provide them with brochures and promotional items that display your products & services. This is a great opportunity to reel them in as a client or if they're already a client get them to add-on/purchase other products/services.
Surprise your loyal fans with a wonderful Christmas present! Schedule a message to hit their inbox on Christmas Day that will give them 20 - 30% off a product/service of your choice. This will make your current customers feel extra special.
Happy NEW Year
Work with your web designer to give your website a Face Lift with a NEW Landing Page. In the days leading up to the New Year, countdown to your NEW Website! Be sure to capture client information from your web visitors. Use Facebook & Twitter to guide traffic to your site. If you have time, even upload a video to your YouTube channel to build even more excitement.
If you like any of these tips and need my help implementing any of them just let me know. Have A Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!
