Social Media - Ain't Nobody Got Time For That!

May 31, 2014

A common thread amongst business users of social media is that owners just don’t have the time to do it.

Of course, when I hear those words, “don’t have time”, I’m always reminded of this news video of Sweet Brown that was turned into an auto tune sensation.

This link specifically has over 43 million views.

So it begs the question…why don’t YOU have time for Social Media?

Social Media is growing and the number of new platforms is growing and so are the features available to users.

Twitter, for example, is a social media platform that only a year ago I would have said “Twitter?…Aint nobody got time for that!” It seemed like a complete waste of time.

But then I met and worked with Don Power, a social media guru, who helped me to see how valuable Twitter was for my business.

He showed me how to use Twitter, when to post new things, the “what to do’s” and “what not to do’s” using Twitter and for the first time in my life I began to see how Twitter was invaluable.

I’ve met a lot of great people through Twitter. It’s a great way to promote your business and it’s a great way to interact with your followers..and of course…potential clients.

If you haven’t already done so I would highly recommend picking up Don Power’s book, Twitter for Skeptics, and see for yourself how Twitter can work for you.

Now for the exciting part!

On my new web series, '2 Red Chairs', I interviewed Don Power and it was fascinating to find out more about how Social Media is changing how we interact with businesses and the public in general. The main topic was all about Content Marketing and you can watch the episode here!

So stay tuned!  There is a lot more I have in store for you all.
