Right, so I know I need to start twittering but… what is it exactly?
We were recently asked to give a 10 minute social media blasterclass for one of our clients.
They knew they needed Twitter – at least, they’d been told they did and believed whoever it was they were talking to… They also knew they needed Facebook and had set up a page and then… weren’t really sure what to do with it…
So, we held hands, took deep breaths and helped them dive into the social sphere.
We talked about the importance of listening to their market place. We talked about congruence and being true to yourself. We talked about not just using the social media channels as hard sales tools but to nurture followers to create a more subtle route to market. We talked about lots of things.
And, by the end of it all, they were happy to swim alone.
They’ve set up their Twitter accounts, they’re using their Facebook pages and they’re getting ready for their shiny new website (courtesy of us).
But, what we would have really liked is this. A perfect guide to social media – despite the doh!nut misspell.
All credit to Firebox (and David Donnan) for pointing it out on… yes, their Facebook pages.
