Blogging and Twitter provide the one-two punch that took a static site and turned it into a client-attraction tool as you'll learn in today's Friday Feature...
Since launching my blog and then Twitter profile back in May (2010), I have:
- Attracted new clients
- Connected with amazing people that have shared their gifts as well as business opportunities
- Contributed to an ebook and guest posted
- Gotten my first paying gig as a writer!
- And launched a group program (www.juicylife.ca) with ease
There's more but that gives you an idea of how much fun I've had since committing time to social media!
What was the obstacle that you were facing in your business?
What did you find as a result of using a blog/social media?
I've found that others love to support, encourage and empower people as much as I do! I've received great advice and feedback, and the kind of support that is mind boggling. I was used to that with my network, especially Facebook, but what was surprising was that it could be that way with Twitter which was a new environment for me where I didn't know many people.
What specific feature do you like most blogging/social media?
Connection! It's always been one of my core values, and I love that I can now connect with so many extraordinary people all over the world so easily. From a good friend in NY to a web master in Brisbane to a travelling nomad, the ease of connecting has amazed and inspired me.
What other benefits did you experience from blogging/social media?
I love the generosity people have shown. They've shared their time, expertise, connections, and in some cases I feel that friendships have begun.
From the beginning, I valued what Scott Stratten of UnMarketing had to say, "Stop marketing. Start engaging." and have done my best to keep that in mind in all my interactions.
Is there anything you’d like to add?
I am stunned at the magical power of Twitter, which is ironic because I resisted it for a couple of years!
