I've submitted my Twitter and Facebook for Business Facebook article to Floor Covering Weekly. Thanks to many powerful contributions, I believe my story about the value and importance of social media and Twitter and Facebook specifically will win the day!
In the meantime, I want to thank those who responded to my Twitter and Facebook For Business Face-Off: Help Requested! plea and recap highlights.
First, who helped me with their Facebook and Twitter marketing stories?
- Larry Callahan, Callahan's Carpet One - replied via email with "Facebook and Twitter are helping me grow my business, but not because of consumers finding me via these social media sites. Rather, I am looking for things to tweet or post which has forced me to take a new look at me, my business, and how I am different than my competition. Through this process I continue to evolve and get better at what I do. Like John Wooden said – “learn as if you will live forever…” "
- Mark Hannan, NWRugs - see the post Mark wrote on Facebook in response to my Face-off request for help. This is also where you will find comments from...
- Pam Kozelka, Content Marketing Institute - see Content Marketers: Leverage Those Relationships! for an amazing success story. I love this point that she makes "What is as important as producing quality content relevant to your audience is that you engage with your audience to ensure they understand the fundamentals of what you are sharing and want to learn more from you, the expert."
