Transcript of "Using Social Media Professionally"

  1. 1. How to use SM to develop your professional potential AN INTRODUCTION FOR INTERNATIONAL PRO WOMEN WORLDWIDE with cultural entertainment producer Anastasia Ashman & creative entrepreneur Tara Agacayak presentation originally created for INTERNATIONAL PROFESSIONAL WOMEN OF ISTANBUL NETWORK Taksim Hill Hotel, November 12, 2009
  2. 2. Ask yourself Are you using Social Media for professional purposes? Which services, for how long? Which networks are you drawn to, and why? What do you hope to achieve with Social Media? Are you planning to join an international professional women Social Media group to pool resources, build meaningful networks, find support?
  3. 3. What the [bleep] is Social Media? Overview slideshow Web 2.0 is interactive, user-generated, crowd-sourced, collaborative Demise of one-to-many broadcasting, rise of hub-and- spoke concept of multiple points of connection, Tribes, the new attention & emotional economy
  4. 4. Top Social Networks each network has its own personality, best uses YouTube -- videos; Flickr -- photographs MySpace -- performing artists, average age 26, blue-collar Facebook -- general population, ‘reunion of who you know’, average age 31, suburban Twitter -- curated web, ‘cocktail party’ ‘continuing ed’, average age 33, cutting-edge LinkedIn -- business professionals, ‘conference’, average age 39, white collar
  5. 5. Benefits for women, expats, global citizens, professionals Social Media works best the way women work best: it’s about making and tending personal connections Social Media supports and consolidates the diffuse networks expats/global women have already initiated SM erases cultural, geographic and time zone disadvantages by providing access to state-of-the- industry practices, trending thought, leading players in your profession
  6. 6. More reasons SM works for pro international women LOCATION INDEPENDENCE (work where you are and where you’ll go) SELF-ACTUALIZATION (be an expert in whatever you choose) LANGUAGE (communicate in your preferred tongue) FLEXIBILITY (time and location become irrelevant)
  7. 7. Everyone is a platform now Business opportunity benefits of creating a personal brand, raising your profile, digitally distributing free content, establishing expertise and credibility in your field Amplify your efforts with engagement tools/techniques: like SocialOomph (automation), Tweetdeck, Hootsuite and Twitter lists (curation), Wordpress blogs, Delicious (bookmarking), ebooks, viral marketing/word of mouth as others share your story with their network
  8. 8. Case Studies Tara Agacayak’s web presences for artisan tours, entrepreneur training, web consulting, women’s microcredit, pro profile Anastasia Ashman’s web presences as a cultural entertainment producer, her group blog for global citizens + identity adventurers, pro profile Example of favorite SM use by expat women entrepreneur Megan Fitzgerald Top money-making blogs and methods of income

Social Media is the New Tattoo: Do Present yourself thoughtfully, accurately and honestly Plan for a serious, long-term relationship with SM Mind-cast, not life-cast: aim for a high signal vs. noise ratio. Use the appropriate privacy settings, separate your business and personal uses Foster Web 2.0 commodities: trust, attention, influence Provide value: offer your expertise and knowledge, solve problems, be generous, connect people, be authentic Monitor who is following you (be aware of who you are congregating with)
