Writing for Social Media and Websites

Social Media is the sharing of information and interaction with others through online sites such as Facebook, Twitter, Linked In, Pinterest, and Google Plus, just to name a few of the more popular sites.

I like to think of Social Media as adult “Show and Tell.”

When we were little we had the opportunity to bring in something to share with our classmates. Maybe it was a toy or trinket, souvenir or story. In any case, we had the opportunity to have a forum to share with our peers. And in the end, our peers grew curious and asked us many questions about what we shared, at which point sharing became an interaction.

Take Facebook. We share our everyday occurrences, our challenges and successes, our triumphs and our defeats. We can post videos and pictures; we can even choose whom we want to include in our sharing. And in the end, we look to our friends, colleagues, fans, family to leave comments or “Like” what we have to share. Questions are asked, comments are made, and an entire conversation revolves around something we have shared. Isn’t this really adult show and tell?

When it comes to our business, we have the opportunity to “show and tell” about our products and services. We can use pictures and videos and point people in our direction, encourage our consumers and clients to “Like” what we have to offer and share it with others. Our goal is to be found by as many people as we can turn into customers, either now or in the future.

Social Media is free advertising; it is the number one way consumers are shopping. And why wouldn’t they? They can shop all hours of the day and gather information, compare prices, services, and the experiences of others. All of this can be done in the privacy of their own home, office, car, or portable device.

In order to be “found” on the web, you must invest in a social media plan. The idea is to develop a fan base that draws attention to what you have to offer. Word of mouth is a popular form of advertising, and what better way to showcase your business or service than designing, implementing, and procuring a social media plan?
