Social Media Tip

Recommended Posts

My plan for 2012 is to send a weekly tidbit of info to help you with your social media marketing, think of it as a little bit of homework from Kathy! :-) You can choose to participate or not, I simply wanted to send you some additional info to help you in this area. Working virtually with clients, you really need to have a good online presence.


Soooo...Enjoy this week's Tip!





Writing = Talking online


You need to get in the groove and simply type as you speak. This makes your words appear more natural. I like to add dashes and dots (pauses) because this is how I will talk in real life. The ... 's make a pause in my words and that is the same thing I do when talking.


Don't forget the # 1 rule of talking online is to Never refer to yourself in the 3rd person. You would never say to someone face to face - "Hey give Kathy a call if you need more info" so don't say that (write it) online.






Take 5 minutes today and go to your Twitter account and talk to a couple people (start with me: @timeontaskva) and try to write your words as you would say them. I tend to repeat what I have written out loud to see if it sounds natural. Read their update and make a comment on it. Start with something easy like a quote or tip. Respond to that person and thank them for the info or indicate why you liked it. Write the same type of thing you would as if you had heard that face to face.


Let me know how it goes!
