Success via Twitter

Posted on by Tracy in socialmedia | No Comments

One of the benefits of Twitter in my biz (and life) is this amazing connection to people all over the globe! When I speak about humanizing businesses via Social Media / Marketing, people ask me all the time- “but really, how has Twitter put money in your pocket”? I LOVE that question! One example; I had a potential new client seek out our services, this client was rather large involving 5 businesses. I was ‘stuck’ and a bit fearful on my proposal and moving forward. One of my Twitter connections is a biz consultant on the East Coast. Because of Twitter we have built a relationship. I was able to reach out to him via the old PHONE and discuss ways to prepare the proposal. His help was invaluable, as is his continued support on Twitter that is helping to grow me my business. Twitter has increased my data base, income, …

5 Key Steps to Social Media Success

Posted on by Tracy in business | No Comments

After an hour consultation with a business owner yesterday, I am again reminded that many businesses do not have a clue about the benefits of Social Media and the impact it can have on their overall growth. Here are 5 key steps that you can do today to start growing a social media ‘tribe’ that can grow your business. 1.  Pick one social media platform ie; Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Pinterest, Instagram, Google+ and spend 15 minutes five days a week learning how to use it. Do this for 3 weeks. 2.  Follow, like, connect with the gurus using that platform in your industry. Watch  what they are doing and do what they are doing (without copying).  Ask them questions with an open mind that you will learn from them.  Many times people feel too competitive to do this.  Realize there is enough business to go around…if you can’t do this look …

One Simple Way to Build Community

Posted on by Tracy in Social Media Tribe, Uncategorized | No Comments

The theme I am noticing from clients and from within my own life this week seems to be the question: “How do I grow my community?”  Oh, the answers that I have for friends and clients alike are quite simple, yet often not so easy to do and do consistently. In my experience and according to countless others who have gone before me, this one strategy works in growing a happy, joyous and prosperous lifestyle 100% of the time. Ready? Here it is…….be a GIVER, not a taker.  How will you know when it is working? Your focus will shift and others will start to enter your mind more and more.  You will eventually attract the exact community that you are wishing for. When we remove the focus from “what can I get out of this,” to “how can we give back to businesses, people, and the communities we live in,” we are able to attract others into our own worlds.  We are able …

What You See is What You Get

Everyone is confident in their first amendment right: freedom of speech, religion and press, but just because you’re allowed to say and publish something, doesn’t mean it’s always the best idea to do so. With the Internet excessively progressing over time, more opportunities for self-portrayal become available for anyone and everyone to view. And it’s these new social networking sites, such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and blogging sites, that have the power to exploit people in ways that can haunt them forever. There are those pictures of the beer pong table from college, or that crazy spring break trip with a group of friends that was too much fun to not share with everyone on your Facebook friends’ list, but what about a potential future boss scrolling through those? Some of us are victims of excessive tagging. If you’re a Facebook fiend, you know what I mean… you go to …
