So far I have been strongly resisting joining the social media movement. Until recently I don’t think I really understood the value of participating in blogs, Twitter etc. (aside from the fact that everyone is doing it). A few weeks ago I went to a marketing seminar on using social media. The facilitator shared with us that for him, social media is a way to build relationships with his clients, customers, colleagues etc. This really resonated with me. The ability to connect with all those people in a regular, on-going way in which they will gain some value. Not just as tools to promote my business. I think that this is where I was stuck, not wanting to use social media just as a way of marketing my business. Instead, using it to open up insight into who I am and what I think about the world around me.
Ready to join me on the journey? Remember, I am a new blogger. The first few posts could be a bit bumpy!
