Thinking out loud about all things IMC

What are your social media victories?

leave a comment »

Edinboro University is giving me the opportunity to conduct a short workshop, Social Media 101, that I developed for job seekers, small business and non-profits to learn more about the social media landscape and all the opportunities available for those with little to no budget.  In the workshop portion, we’ll build profile pages that get results and learn how to connect and leverage social properties.

As I work in B-to-B, I am really interested in learning from others working on a shoestring: 

  • What social media victories have you experienced for a small business non-profit?
  • Where did you build that personal brand that helped you land a job in this difficult economic environment? 

This is my current list social media sites and tools, any more practical ideas?

  • The Big 4:  Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, FourSquare
  • eNewsletters:  Mail Chimp, Constant Contact
  • Blogging:  Word Press, Blogger
  • Photo/Video Sharing:  Flickr, You Tube, Slide Share
  • Product Reviews:  Yelp, Major retailers Amazon, etc.
  • Mobile:  QR codes, local Carrier tools, Groupon
  • Tools:  Share This, Google, Yahoo, Bing

I’d like to share your suggestions with our participants to help them to find success at a cost they can afford – that’s what makes social media such an excellent tool.
