Here we go. I am going to follow the steps provided in the post by Robert Scroble on Quora. There is quite a conversation going on there, so I am am going to highlight a few of the steps that I am going to take to get more exposure to the blog here @EzyInsights. I’ll update over the next few weeks if there are visible improvements, but I need your help with this too.
If you don’t have interesting content or a reason for people to interact with you will find it hard to engage peoples attention. I’m trying to write content that might be useful for you at some stage. Perhaps not now, but one day you may think: “Oh yes, I remember EzyInsights talk about Social Media (and other stuff) – maybe they’ll have insights into the subject matter” – or at least know someone else who might..
Get your name known. Comment on similar blogs, add insight or just plain thank people for their time in posting on the subject matter. It’s always good if you can add something to the conversation,
Social Media is all about relationships. You might start as a little fish in a big pond but it really helps if you are able to make a few friends and nurture these relationships. I’m sure you know yourself if you work in a larger company you will be more responsive to someone that you have met in person and not just had email conversations back and forth.
There are very few places to hide in Social Media. I know you can make your own wonderful personae in forums and chat rooms, but in places of business, transparency is always the best method. Period.
There’s more to life than Social Media. Give me a phone call or let’s get-together in person. Many forms of written communication can be misinterpreted There is nothing like the real life conversation..
What are you doing to enhance your presence in Social Media?
