I’m quite proud of myself right now. I’ve finally gotten my own social networking up and running.
(This is something for me to celebrate. You see, as a marketing strategist, I’m far more likely to focus on my clients’ marketing strategies and ignore my own.
And then it turns into a “do as I say, not as I do” situation.)
So what finally convinced me to get my act together? Well, it was several things but the most relevant (at least for this article) is I’m doing variations of this for some pretty big clients, including Alex Mandossian. (Yes, THAT Alex Mandossian. He’s pretty private about his team, but I asked him for permission to let my list know I was working with him and he said that would be fine.)
Before I start telling my clients about certain marketing strategies, I like to test out them out for myself. And, I must say, I’m pretty excited about the results. I’ve only been doing it seriously for about 2 weeks and have already seen a jump in my traffic and subscriptions.
Here are the links to the 3 social networking sites I’m focusing on right now. (And if you have a profile, or start a profile on any of these, please feel free to invite me as a friend!)
MySpace — http://www.myspace.com/michelepw
Linked In — http://www.linkedin.com/in/michelepw
Ryze — http://www.ryze.com/go/Michele243
(Note — don’t make my mistake with Ryze and open an account years ago with some goofy numbers in the name because I didn’t realize that was going to be my Ryze name for life and I was going to look ridiculous marketing it.
So what is social networking? Well, today’s brand new article will give you the low down and some basics on getting started.
