So, we leave for our time with The Woodworking Shows in only a few days, but I am spending huge blocks of time figuring out how to better market our business through Facebook, Twitter, Blogger, LinkedIn, Trip Advisor and a variety of other social media sites. When our students get here to the school, they have a great time and an excellent experience all around, but getting them here--at least until we have built up a longer-term reputation in the industry--has proven to be a challenge. Thus the social media push.
Which brings me to the reason for this post...What social media sites (like the ones I just listed above) do you use regularly? Are you a Facebooker? Are we officially 'friends?' Do you Tweet? Would you like it if I became one of your stalkers...er, ahem, I mean 'followers?' Do you even bother with blogs when you are researching a product, brand, organization, etc.? Do you use LinkedIn? Is it important to you? How about Trip Advisor? Do you write reviews? Do you read them? Are there other sites that I should be paying more attention to that I didn't even mention here?
I'm curious, and would love to hear your thoughts.
Oh, and if we're not officially 'friends' and you'd like to be, or if I'm not currently stalking...I mean following you on Twitter and you'd like me to (and maybe you'd like to follow me, too), then please mention that, along with whatever cool names you've chosen for yourself, in a comment here or in a private message. Thanks.
