Thank you, Social Media!

Okay, I finally gave in to Facebook and at least one excellent thing has happened. I set up an account after attending Banded Together's social media gathering on July 20. While I really only wanted a P.S. Writes Facebook page for business, one has to have an individual page first, so that's where I've been bending my learning curve. Special thanks to Karey Bader, Blizzard Communications, for my private tutoring. Looking forward to more learning at your August gathering.

My Facebook friends now number 110 and I've been keeping tabs on other business owners, friends and even family members for a couple of weeks. The value of social media for a business like mine has been a big question mark for me, but that question mark became more of an exclamation point this week. The most excellent happening: I won a free 60-second Web video from Munoz Productions. I "like" them and their Facebook post said they were giving three free ($150+ value) Web videos away to the first businesses to contact them. 

I'd managed to find my "news feed" area, and was exploring all that my Facebook friends had been doing when I saw Dave and Margie's post. Looking forward to working with these two pros and to saying that "I won something for my business!" the next time someone asks me how social media is impacting my bottom line.
