There are countless guides on how to get a gazillion followers on Twitter, how to optimize your personal brand on LinkedIn, how to blog with the best of them, etc. But, I'm constantly amazed that many folks employing these social media tactics have truly forgotten the meaning and purpose of a conversation.
Somewhere along the line, it feels like we've forgotten how to just be present. We've lost touch with the idea of giving as a path to reaping rewards.
It's really not all that difficult to jolt yourself back into what a marketing or sales conversation should be all about. I've found the perfect way to show you.
If you haven't heard about Smile & Move, now's the time. If you want a guide for etiquette in the social media environment, here you go.
Watch the video and tell me that you're not inspired to approach social media with the idea of serving, sharing and a commitment to providing value.
Smile & Move works like this:
- Wake up
- Be thankful
- Be approachable
- Complain Less
- Smile. Really.
- Start early & go long
- Exceed expectations
- Have a sense of urgency
- Be resourceful & resilient
Sounds like a recipe for social media engagement to me...
Oh, and there's a book, too!
