[Twitter] A Conversation To. Engage With Grace
Follow on Twitter #EWGIt's not a revelation that social media occurs in the digital conversations of the Internet. However, some find it strange that conversations with people who might be more of an acquaintance than one we might call a "friend" often lead to important ideas. It can be easier to open discussions in the world of blogs, tweets or Facebook where your thoughts fly into cyber space. Sitting across a table, where body language and facial experssions can immediate challenge your views, before words are even spoken can be a big risk. Maybe. You might have a similar story.

[Twitter] Why I Stopped Accepting Guest Posts, and Why You Should Too!
Over time, my brand evolved from just a twitter handle to an embodiment of the professional I’m aspiring to become. About three months ago, I stopped accepting guest posts on MrRyanConnors.com. From two to three per week, to zip, zilch, nada. In a move that seems counter-intuitive, I took a stand against prior assumptions and am now refining the brand I started slightly over a year ago, which includes ending guests posts. If you’d like to know why, and learn how my reasoning may apply to your blog or website, continue on…. The guest blogging shop is closed. Images via Flickr and Flickr.

[Twitter] The No Fly Zone (Except Exodus)
Last year I gave away Twitter header images as a holiday giveaway. We are in the midst of that rare holiday season when Christmas and New Years both land on a Wednesday. People are enjoying vacations throughout the two weeks, forcing many non-retail businesses into a no fly zone. Little can be done until the new year begins and folks return to work. Like most entrepreneurs, my business will be coasting through these weeks with one exception. I’ll be giving Exodus away for free on the Kindle from December 24 through the 28th. This year, it’s the novel. hope you enjoy the book!

report that shows total number of Twitter impressions. Paradox: in an age of technology advances being gobbled like Pez, marketing and customer service are somehow getting more labor-intensive, not less. Social media and the rise of self-serve content requires that we actually attempt to fulfill the decades-old promise of 1:1 marketing – winning hearts and minds a few at a time with unprecedented relevancy and transparency and humanization and speed. And that takes time. Flickr Photo by Doc_Brown. And that’s where the problem starts. The Social Media People Problem.

By using traditional methods like trade shows, PR and direct mail along with social tools like YouTube, SlideShare, Facebook and Twitter, you can start identifying potential customers and start gathering email addresses for your database. Over the past several years, marketers have been focusing more of their efforts (both time and money) on social media. Especially in the manufacturing B-to-B space, social certainly has a place to help set you up as an expert in your field of expertise, but it won’t replace more traditional ways of communicating like email.

While having 10,000 Twitter followers or 25,000 subscribers to your blog’s RSS is nice, they are meaningless unless you can produce meaningful results for your company. There is no question that social media is the most useful innovation or tool for the public relations industry. It has leveled the playing field and allowed easier access to reporters for public relations pros. This has also served as the catalyst for more meaningful relationships between journalists and flacks. That is great for the industry and clients hungry for coverage, but social media also has a dark side.
