The Power of Social Media

Really…I should know…but I always forget…the power of friendship and the appearance of great people in life just when you most need them! It all happened somehow…not really sure how…but next minute I was looking after setting the wheels in motion to put together a presentation for Thomas Power, Founder of Ecademy, visiting Brisbane.

I didn't give it much thought…hey I've put together other events for myself and others before…it'll be easy! And for a while things ran smoothly until…all sorts of things required my attention…the days flew by and I couldn't stop the time…it was a race and next minute the day was here, I had it all prepared despite so many other things crowding my time…..and then……on the last minute…..the Internet connection wouldn't work…..

WHY?? I was already rushed enough…what to do…send hubby off with a second laptop……I race to the shop to get the connection fixed…..phone call while finally on the way to the venue…they can't find the room!!!

What else can go pear shaped?

When it all gets too much….everyone turns out their best…it was a fantastic presentation…wonderful warm people attended….we listened to Thomas Power for over 3 hours…hanging on the edge of our chairs…and went for drinks after….formed new relationships, promised to keep in touch and already have….phone calls have been exchanged…thanks guys and girls!

……and today I got a really lovely Thank You card……how can I ever forget?

When it all gets too much…everyone turns out their best!!

In exactly the same way can we build and add Social Media to our personal and business lives…build relationships by sharing…listening and jumping in to help others…….and everyone…mostly everyone….will want to help with a comment, suggestion and idea.

I’ve been watching and reading……and it’s all there online…….you almost can’t help but take part in it!

What does that mean for Business owners?

Get on with it…..your customers are out there……talking about their challenges and you can offer the solution…not by selling but by giving your advice. Become part of the revolution….be active in social media as part of your marketing
