Get in the Conversation with Social Media

Networking at it’s best on the Social Media platforms

I have to look and read my emails on the web via Gmail as I get so many these days and the general marketing I normally delete it.  Messages from contacts/twitter and notifications that I need to comment on then get uploaded to my Outlook folders and I read them later on.

I am using three emails, just set up a new one to correspond with this new Blog which will be for people who will contact me about Life Coaching and the Business Coaching which will be developed around helping new business find contacts and leads via networking.

A lot of my notifications are constantly coming up via my Iphone4, so it is impossible to miss anything important!  People that are Social Media Savvy normally get my attention by DM or @stella_holman on Twitter.

Facebook, is still one of my prime areas for marketing, building relationships to find potential projects, I currently use Ecademy and LinkedIn.  Ecademy being the prime network for me.

Everyone that I offer the Social Media Visibility service to has to create a profile on Ecademy, as this is the objective and main platform for which my services operate, at least I can offer them a 30 day trial.   I am aiming to recruit Blackstars and have a plan in which they can collaborate and we can then all make some money!

Yesterday, I was aware about another Social Media platform on which connections could give each other a type of recommendation.    connect.me .  if you are connected to me, i will be sending you a voucher at some point. This works with Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn.  For me those connections combined are nearly 12,000 connections, on which I could be interacting with on a weekly, monthly basis.

LinkedIn being a database, these days having opportunity to interact easier on the groups and also by liking and commenting on RSS threads.

LinkedIn is almost a weeks work for me.   I have to confess with having a backlog of emails of nearly 700 and also over 300 invitations of people wanting to connect.

Have to be selective of who I add, want to connect with people who it is possible to build a working relationship with as most people who connect will send an email and I am sorting through people who maybe interested to work with me.   It just isn’t practical to add people who seek work to be outsourced.  For example when I first started on LinkedIn I was adding everybody, but as I get bombarded with emails about outsourcing to Call Centres in India.  The most off putting thing about this is that these people just don’t have any idea who their clients should be.

So on a small basis; it I do delegate projects to other people  though it is really difficult to find the right person, my daughter gets involved from time to time.  She is very fast these days as she also is on Facebook.  I have been working with the Digital Coaches and when I get paid to do a project I get so behind with my own work that it seems I can never catch up.

The best way is to use a strategy this is a product that I have created  to use with Twitter tools which works quite nicely to post tweets to my various accounts, then all I have to do is build the relationships with the people who connect to me.  Also about caring and sharing, building lists in your various sectors/industries.

The same with Facebook – if you set-up your Twitter, so that updates on your Facebook pages get posted directly into your Tweet, and if you are then sharing the RSS codes with your other networks you are sharing your content with a lot of people.
