    Fantastik links. The best one for me is the one writen by Susan Gunelius. I espeically like the 3rd tip she gives in that artcile;
    “Acknowledge and recognize your audience”.

    I have seen this not done by so many people on sites like twitter. They just bombard their followers with ads and marketing messages without ever trying to make a connection with the followers or getting to know them a bit more.

    I know when you have thousands of followers, its hard to get to know all of them in a deep level, but there are things you can do to let them knwo you are not just here to constantly bombard them with your ads.

    Hi Andrew

    Thanks for the resources. I am active in Twitter and I see social media as a must for my business. It’s amazing how many bloggers neglect this important aspect. I have found by being active it has brought me tons of new visitors to my site and also put my blog out there in places it wouldn’t have been seen.

      How long do you spend on Twitter and do you set aside certain times of the day?


      • Patricia January 9, 2011 at 3:19 pm #

        I forget what the right answer to that one is Andrew so I’ll just say for as long as I am enjoying myself lol

        I have set times due to time zone differences which make it hard for us in Perth!!! So late nights are becoming normal as well as fairly early mornings πŸ˜‰

        I see it as an integral and important part of my networking as I have found so many blogs to visit and people to interact with there. If used correctly it is a powerful tool.

        Tend not to spend time on FB although few of my blogging buddies are into it so have to go over once in awhile.

        Also I have been selective about who I follow and not gone for the numbers. I know this is not what everyone advises but I would rather get my numbers up at a rate that I know who I am interacting with.

        I regularly go through and see who is active and who is not. And the spammers get deleted quickly.

          I like that approach…”as long as I am enjoying myself”.

    Well I’m not good with social media either so I hope I can learn from one of these posts and eventually implement it on my own

    • Andrew January 9, 2011 at 2:20 pm #


      We could all improve – you are not alone!

    Great post, but I think most ppl should ask themselves whether social media success is worth their time. It’s great to communicate with your customers, but is social media always the best way to do so? i find emailing your customers is a better way and a more surefire way to gain more conversions.

    • Andrew January 11, 2011 at 6:36 pm #

      I think social media can be used to get new customers…not something to use to communicate with your existing customers.

    I’m never sure how to take it when someone posts 12 links from “well-known online figures” and I recognize, one.

    I’ll check ’em all out for sure. πŸ˜‰

    • Andrew January 11, 2011 at 6:35 pm #


      Take it like…you are discovering new ‘well-known online figures’ and enjoy!


      • Dennis Edell January 12, 2011 at 1:16 pm #

        It’s just that “well known” makes me a little itchy…Ive been here almost a decade. πŸ˜‰

    I am kind of late on this one, but I already knew that social media was a great way to get lots of exposure for everything you want to do, from sales to promoting a brand.

    I know some of the post you posted and I will read some other that I found interesting (like Structuring for Social Media Success).

    Great share, Andrew!
