How To Start Using Social Media

In an interview leading up to this weekend’s golf tournament, this year’s Masters’ champion Phil Mickelson was asked about a Krispy Kreme incident that happened on Monday after winning the coveted green jacket. Phil pulled up to the drive-through window in his Masters’ jacket (“it was kinda chilly out, so I just grabbed a jacket…”). Phil was fulfilling a promise to his kids that he would get the sugary donut treats once the tournament was over. The woman working the drive-through that morning recognized him, snapped a picture on her cell phone, and posted it online.

You need to find a way to marketing what you have to offer. The most common way to do this is through the web on a blog or a website. You can market it using article marketing, social media, reseller websites and affiliate programs. There are many ways to do so. The key is to keep working at it so that you generate a lot of interest. For example, if you wish to sell a product about healthy cat foods, you can create an eBook that contains all of the information that you know and want to share from others. You may be a vet and therefore have the inside track on what makes the best choices for cat food. You can then set up a website where you feature a link to where people can buy your eBook.

The music track was not synched up for some reason. Judge Howie Mandel told everyone that only 4 acts out of tonight’s 12 move onto the next round.

Secondarily you can use Google search to find what’s in the news about topics relevant to your business and publish links to those articles on your Facebook page or account as well. Don’t over-think it. You can’t break Facebook, or Twitter, or any Socialreseller tool. As long as your content is not offensive it’s pretty hard to go wrong.

Each site is slightly different so you need to read through the fine print of each to make sure you understand the expiration date, how the deal works for you etc. Another wonderful aspect of these sites is that you do not have to live in the area to purchase! If you are traveling and want to find great deals for the city you are going to, go ahead!

PETE: I really don’t know. It’s cool to see that people have adopted it and get some benefit from it, but I don’t pay attention to who or how many people are following it. Having a centralized Twitter account that people can follow for this information is helpful; when you receive a tweet from KcTrailsStatus, you know what it’s going to be about. There’s no extraneous “noise” coming from it.

I sincerely hope this article helps you in finding the news you need and as efficiently as you can, as there is always two sides to every story and many stories at that. I have found picking the right twitter account to follow with a few other choice social media accounts got me started. Then searching online until things started lining up. Then it was a simple matter of book marking and subscribing to the appropriate sources. Thanks again for reading, good luck at staying informed.
