Today I’m bringing a story with the bears. I just love how they still keep showing up. I have been enjoying greeting and meeting them during the New Zealand lockdown weeks, somehow they always brought a smile to my face. I imagine you would have seen some, too?
Here is a story inspired by the bears who keep showing up.
Today is a very special time of our lives and these past few days probably were very special for many of you as well. How are you all feeling? Yeah..
I am feeling really overwhelmed... but, I have a good news
Social Media is and hopefully will always remain social, so we will always be able to connect no matter what is the current situation and limitations in our lives.
Here are some tips to consider how you can turn this situation into opportunity and how to practice social distancing - yes, on social media :)
Also an update on the workshops that seems to be the right decision now.
I thought I'll surprise my subscribers with something special this year. No, it wasn't a last minute Xmas promo, where you get a 99% discount and buy my services for double than usual :) And I wanted a bit more than just a nice Xmas message to check out before I thank them all for being part of the B!Social adventures all year.
It's some topics that I thought they might find interesting, and that are close to my heart. And topics that got most of my followers votes on Social Media that they wanted to hear about.
I've been getting some great feedback. So I decided to publish it. Hope you will enjoy it and find it useful!
Following the wonderful feedback from you all, I am excited to share with you the latest "B!Socials in the Spotlight" series - yes, now it's turned into a series! - featuring my lovely clients who we had the chance to work together with on their Social Media Marketing, and who are each doing some amazing things in their respective fields.
A big shoutout to you all who stepped up, decided to invest in yourselves, put in time & some thinking behind your posts to bring real & valuable content to your clients, dared to be brave, do something new or out of your comfort zone, and to all of you who chose to B!Social with us in the past few months to take your business or organisation to another level. Here is to leveraging the power of Social Media!
Everyone, please meet the B!Socials - connect with them, follow them, B!inspired by them and their top tips! And who knows, you or a friend might actually need one of them in your life, right now?! :)
Connecting face-to-face, in real life, with our local professional network. Expanding business opportunities through LinkedIn. Starting conversations, fostering cooperations, building new relationships AND having a fantastic time together. In a pitch free, sales free environment.
Where we meet the people behind their LinkedIn profiles.
Welcome to #linkedinlocal.
What's a really good idea to do before going for a networking event?
Top Tip: get our LinkedIn profile updated and ready to connect, as it can often serve like, or even replace, our business cards these days!
And it's much more, than just a business card, or a CV! LinkedIn is a place where people can get to know more about what we have to offer. It's a place where we can build new connections, foster relationships, inspire and share our professional experiences with each other, and this all might lead to more business opportunities.
Here is to the fantastic team at the 1st B!Social powerhour session.
“Do you want to be a judge at this year’s Young Enterprise Awards? It is on the 29th of October - last year you were travelling, I hope not this year.”
When Ventura Fitzgerald, the Coordinator of the Event contacted me via LinkedIn, I knew right away that this year I can and I will say #YES. Yes to the Young Enterprise Regional Final and Awards, yes to supporting today's youthful leaders and tomorrow's best startups in our region.
Yes to connecting with our local community. Yes to celebrating and encouraging entrepreneurship. And yes to passing on the knowledge and experience I have gathered along the years.
I knew I will have messages to share. I knew there will be ears that will listen and embrace it.
But little did I know how this experience will make me reflect, re-evaluate. Tune in and grow.
Here is a story of what I learned from the Regional YES Awards.
Inspired by #judgelife.
How can Local Businesses use Social Media Marketing to Grow? 3 Inspiring Case Studies from Nelson-Tasman
Wow, what a fantastic evening! It was an honour to be back to present for the second time with the Nelson Tasman Business Trust and share some of my top tips on how to raise a business profile to grow, get strategic and hopefully enjoy the process, too! ☺️ O
Of course, with the help of Social Media.
I highlighted the importance of a solid social media strategy and I invited 3 local business owners who started implementing what they learned at the B!Social Workshops and got some great results from it. They joined me on stage to present their absolutely inspiring local case studies.
How can businesses create & leverage communities around their products/services with the help of Social Media? I'm bringing you today an exciting live case study from the luxury watch industry. An example of an engaged worldwide community connected through - yes, a simple hashtag.
Check out this special video interview with Balázs Ferenczi, Content Marketing Manager of Chrono24, an online platform for watch sellers & buyers, and also the editor of the online Fratello Magazine. He shares with us not only the success story behind #SpeedyTuesday, but also how online communities can be taken back offline to connect fans in real life. From all over the world!
I'm very excited about this topic as I feel this is at the heart of Social Media Marketing today. #offlineisthenewblack ?! This is something I would recommend smart businesses to definitely leverage in a creative way as we move into a more and more digitalised world! Using social media to connect people. Create communities. Not only online, but back to basics, offline.
A big theme throughout Social Media Marketing World #SSMW19 this year, and the inspirational closing keynote of Mark Schaefer.
