“Wouldn’t You Want Dave Talking About Your Blank?”

Think Social Media is a waste of time, especially for businesses?

Chris Burdge of bWest Interactive shares an entertaining YouTube video (“Blank”) in his March 1, 2012 blog post “Meet Dave…

The video illustrates advertising company 22squared.com’s trademarked phrase “When advocates talk, brands grow,” and shows how Social Media can empower consumers to become advocates – who take action.

How many lives do you think one person can touch in a week through Google+, Twitter, Facebook and WordPress?

If your clients are using Social Media to talk about your business- don’t you want to be part of the conversation?

May 2012 Social Media Tip

In his March 20th, 2012 post, “A Guide to Managing the New Facebook Timeline,” Chris shares a link to a free interactive course about Facebook Pages created by the Facebook Team.

His post also answers the following questions regarding Facebook’s changes to its user interface for both individual users and Facebook (Business) Pages:

  • What is the difference between Tabs and Application Pages?
  • Why would I pin content to the top of my Timeline?
  • What does “highlighting” or “starring” a post on my Timeline do?
  • How have the dimensions of the “Tab” pages changed?
  • No more default landing pages?! What do I do instead?
  • What are the dimesions of the cover images?
  • What isn’t allowed to be use in a cover image?

The Start of Something Good: New Social Media Workshops

2012 started with a bang in terms of updates and changes to some of the most popular social platforms including Twitter, Facebook and Google+.  It seems like Facebook changes its interface every time you turn around – did you know Facebook pages will soon be adopting the “timeline” format. And just when you think you’ve got that figured out, along comes Google with a whole new social platform to learn.

Or perhaps you’re new to social media and haven’t been affected by the changes because it’s all new to you. But you’re hearing from everyone that you should be on Twitter or have a Facebook page. What they don’t tell you is what comes next or why you should be there.

Well you need not worry because Sector Learning and Chris Burdge have partnered to create a series of informative, hands-on workshops to help you navigate the social media waters and effectively leverage it to grow your business.  You’ll learn some potential social media strategies, how to track and measure success, as well as which tools work and how. These workshops lead with strategy, these are not “twitter is cool” presentations. Businesses want and need to know how to make social media work for their bottom line, otherwise what’s the point.
