So far, I’ve been a social media dud. I can attribute this in part to the fact that I’m an introvert. I used to run a blog about healthy cooking and eating habits. I did my own posts and videos, but got cold feet when it came to promoting my site. My networking consisted of opening an account, posting a link to my site, following a few popular people, and retweeting the catchy stuff on Twitter. Keep in mind that what I retweeted had absolutely nothing to do with my niche. You can guess what happened. All of the content that I worked so hard to create went unnoticed, and my site did not do as well as I hoped. Epic Fail. Now, I’m looking to change all of that. Instead of using my introverted personality as an excuse to fail; I’ve vowed to work towards improvement. First up: Twitter I decided to make good use of the webinars on VAnetworking. I wasn’t sure which social media account to tackle first, so I just chose Twitter. I found a webinar called “Twitter tips for VAs” by Kathy Colaiacovo. There is a lot more to Twitter than meets the eye! For instance, its sister sites: Twellow and TweetLater. These are great tools for creating connections and keeping up with current ones. It’s more than tweeting and following. There should be an organized method involved. Kathy gave a lot of other helpful hints, and I gladly soaked it all up. There are a few more Twitter webinars on VAnetworking, which I plan on checking out. Also, Kathy has a YouTube channel that I plan on using as a resource as well. It’s the end of my workday, and this post is the last task that I will complete tonight. But, tomorrow’s to-do list includes setting up accounts on Twellow, TweetLater, and Friend or Follow. I am excited about using these tools to grow my network! What’s Next? I don’t expect to become an expert in social media overnight. But at least I now know that I can get better. I believe that following Kathy’s tips will really help me to improve. Of course, there is more to social media and networking than just Twitter. Twitter is only a piece of the puzzle. My next stop is LinkedIn. I have a profile and have joined a few groups. However, I have a feeling that I am not using LinkedIn to its full potential. I’m saying a quick prayer of thanks for the webinars that will guide me. Happy networking, Meghan www.mgrayva.com
