5 Simple Tips for Better Social Media Results

Gareth Edwards presented "5 Simple Tips for Better Social Media Results" at our Members Networking event back in July.

In reverse order his tips are:

5.  Remember to update the profiles on your registered Social Media sites when you do something new and interesting.

4. Include links to your website in profiles, forum entries, blog posts etc. wherever you get the opportunity.

3. Use tools like Twitterfeed, Stumbleupon, Digg and Ping (to name but a few) to distribute and share your content with other sites and other people.

2. Say something interesting!  Think about your experiences and activities and write them down.  Other people WILL find them interesting.  Use professional role models like Seth Godin or enthusiastic amateurs like Jim Reah of Heritage Polish to get some ideas.

1. Join relevant groups (like the National B2B Centre LinkedIn group) and participate in discussions, answer questions and connect with people.

    Yes, Gavin thanks for the reminders,although I have got the notes etc, this is a good place to recap.

    I am playing around with slide share where I have engaged with really interesting conversation, pertinent to my service, in addition to contributing to my development.

    So handy for when you spot relevant slides, reports etc to be able to share with others who are truly interested.

    Still haven’t got a full understadning of its use as yet (time allocation!)
