These days, I get patted on the head a lot
Oh, so cute!
Paul likes to use social media like the kids do!
Do you post what you had for lunch on twitter paulie?
I don't mind, I've always loved flying under the radar.
And there are some damn smart people on twitter,
I'd rather have them all to myself.
But I was reading this article in the Globe and Mail today - "Time to adapt to social media - or face the consequences"
Now, I don't like threats but let me share a secret with you.
SOCIAL media is for weekend warriors and tweens.
I'm into BUSINESS media.
It's about relationships, connecting, dialogue.
I participate to create prosperity and abundance
for me, for my network, for you if you're ready.
LinkedIn is the Facebook of Business
Twitter is communicating at the speed of thought
Blogs allow you to explain yourself in detail
Here's the thing. One day soon, everyone is going to have to get on board. You know that day is coming, so why wait and be the last to learn?
All I'm saying is, start lifting light weight!
Create a profile, don't use it. Seriously!
In six months, start to try it out.
If you start today,
you'll have LOTS of time to play with it.
Before it becomes your job.
Lastly, we're in new territory what if you could get the one twitter handle that describes your entire sector! It's like cyber-squatting in the early 2000's!
Get out there, I'm right there with you - treading water and learning.
Soon, you'll be conducting your own social media symphony!
If you want to read ONE book in 2011 about HOW to engage? Read this one.
As always, I'm here to help, Paul
