The Power of the GREAT UNDERSTANDING in Social Media Marketing
It was all over the place recently at the blogworld expo
It was ROCKING HOT.
People tweeting about it, blogging about it, sending mobile
uploads, podcasting live, ustreaming about it.
What a great event and I love las vegas and the climate. But also
the greatest part of it was the education that someone could learn
I would suggest that you get on the bandwagon and be there next
year. Scott Monty was there. The founders of twitter. Many
different Directors of social media was here for many fortune 500
And Scott was even interviewed on CNN about the social media
revolution. GO Scott! How about Chris Brogan? And all the speakers
there? it was an AMAZING chance to learn and grow in social media.
Why am I telling you this?
Social media is FOR REAl.
And it is happening bigger and grander than you could ever imagine.
And it is in its infancy. If you have a traditional business or
even a home business, you need to understand what i call the GREAT
UNDERSTANDING of Social Media.
The Train is getting ready to leave the station and if you are not
on it, you will be left behind and playing catch up for a long
Twitter. facebook. Youtube. LinkedIn. Stumbleupon. Wordpress.
Help.com. Digg.com Ping.fm. Mybloglog.com And the list is 3,5OO
Get in social media.
Get ON THE TRAIN (and stay there everyday. Not just every once in
while. It MUST be daily.)
Get in the conversation.
Get out of the ancient thinking.
And GET WITH the rest of the folks who do get it and start looking
to social media as an incredible way to market, communicate, build
relationships, get your message out, and connect with your market.
Understand these 5 Great things:
1) Video Communicationis taking over the web and marketing. It is
the new TV station. You MUST adjust and start video marketing with
a relentless focus as video will soon be the new billboards on the
internet highway. Get you a flip video camera and GO.
2) Blog communicationis the new way people look for articles and in
many respects, it is the new newspaper. If you do not blog, then
you are not in the coming mainstream media or power communication.
Put your thoughts on a blog and rock the world.
3) Social Nedworkingis the new way people shake hands initally and
get to know each other. We all have networked, but this is
networking on steriods. You MUST become good at it, and help others
become good at it. This alone will explode your business and
4) Podcast communcation is the new radio. Get yourself on
blogtalkradio as well as other podcast sites and make sure that you
do this weekly. It can drive traffic to you like a tsunami. Become
a radio personality like my friend Tom Chenault. It is a GREAT way
to get your message out.
5) Social Bookmarking is the new way to organize and publicize your
marketing efforts and content. You have heard of digg.com, and
reddit.com. Use them daily and befriend folks as they will help get
your message out in a more powerrful and exposure soaked way..
Do NOT miss thie train. It is geting ready, like a bullet, to leave
the station folks.
Social Media marketing is amazing tool. Be amazing with it in your
social media blueprint.
