Social Media took me some time to understand. I for the longest time never understood why I needed a website, or a fanpage or even twitter....Now after teaching myself about the internet based business, I have learned the relationship between myself and my guest. I taught myself how to build a website, which I am proud of. I realize with almost 30,000 hits in a year it is a mistake for a business not to take this whole internet, social Media serious. Certainly with such sites as the FORBIDDEN YELP...(I do not go here because some things are just ridiculous.) I needed to establish my social media footprint so I could drive potential guest and return guest to the information I wanted them to see, such as specials, news releases, Tv spots and much more.
I know now my guest want to relate to me, they are supportive and most of those who have been with me since I started feel a better connection and share with me what they like or dislike...I can enter into one on one communication with each person, something I may not have been allowed without this Social Media outlet. Depending on which site I use I can directly see who, where, what and when they are looking....I learn what they like to see and try to manage that level of communication between us.
Social Media is a positive and I have to keep up on it to drive the sites I want seen when you search me to the top of the search list. So follow me on Facebook Fanpage, Twitter or my web page :) I love the exchange because really it all seems to be positive or constructive :) Reality is that is how life should be.
