Small Business Social Media


I am often asked by business people “why do you tweet and blog – what business benefit does it deliver? Aren’t you putting yourself ‘out there’ a bit too much?”
There are many reasons why I do what I do. I blog because I am in the fortunate position of learning, reading or experiencing something new almost every day.
I collect information and I need to keep it somewhere. So I thought I may as well share what I have learned or what is on my mind
So I thought I may as well share what I have learned or what is on my mind on a blog.
Tweeting for me is different – it is about being a lone voice that combined with millions of others is a true voice of the people.
Example: the movie Bruno got great pre-launch press, people who saw the movie opening weekend tweeted their opinion – faster than any critic – and the voice of the people had cast its vote. The movie was not considered all it was cracked up to be.
Then, I use Facebook on a personal level.
RedBalloon also delves into social media with Twitter, Facebook, Youtube and Flickr. In today’s world, both big and small business social media presence is a must.
It might not be mainstream media, but it is authentic.
I have teenagers and I don’t want to get to a point where they consume information and connect in a way that I have no idea about. I’m not that past it!
Why’s it important? Because everyone is on a level playing field, meaning opinions matter. See, for example, this disengaged employee’s impact.
How are you using social media for your small business?

Answering your #1 Biggest Business Challenge question tip: 

Go beyond just saying "Poor Cashflow" or "Unreliable Team". 

Instead, give Naomi details & specifics on how this is currently your #1 Biggest Business Challenge. 

I.e. "Every month I'm struggling to pay my bills on time because there just isn't consistent cash flow coming into the business. I've tried sticking to budgets in the past & pay myself less to keep some extra funds aside for emergencies, but still every month there seems to be another financial fire to be put out. I don't know what to do about it, so I'm just grinding it out."
