So before you begin on your journey, make sure you have set your goals, know your audience and focus your attention on the best impact then marshall your efforts.Anything you do in social media either adds to your value or takes away from it. So be very clear about what you want to achieve.A few best practices include:Being key word focused – remember you want to be found and without the right key word mix, your presence will go unnoticed.Know your target audience and build your network around that targetFocus attention on the best impact – watch out for the distractions do not let it becoming overwhelming – use control (hard to when you are having fun)Before we look at 4 of the social media sites let’s look at the types of social media available

      • One of the least used social media components to date
      • 46. This is where smart phones will surf to get information locally
      • 47. Have your heard of Yelp? Or Google Local (now being upgraded to Google Places)

      Organization is the key to making social media work for you. If you are spending too much time on social media, how will you do business at the same time? Organizing on your own website+ page creation+ updating with one or two entries (getting automatic)Outside Sources (outsourcing your needs)+ Social Media tracking services (hootsuite.com or ping.fm)+ Start in one place and link to others
      OurHealthIsFirst.com
    • 56. Too Much to do and SOOO Little Time
      One of the greatest obstacles for social media is the fact that there are too many places to put your content and keep track of which ones are working best for you. Another dilema is the fact that you have to build your audience for each place (sometimes the audience is the same, sometimes it is diverse).Choose Your Locations+ text+ audio
      + videoCreate an easy to follow plan+ My website or yours+ updates (hourly, daily, weekly or…..)
      + gathering intelligence

      OurHealthIsFirst.com
    • 58. Analyzing the Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats (SWOT)
      Does this seem to be an onerous task? You are probably right but in my opinion, the work you do here will eliminate a more onerous task of using ALL social media where some of it does not hit your target audience.Understanding the Tools+ What tools (sites) are available?+ rating the audience type from the list (from no value to extreme value)Using SWOT+ What are the strengths of what you are promoting?+ Name those weaknesses
      + What are the opportunities for using social media?

    • 61. The Social Media Experts?
      OurHealthIsFirst.com
    • 62. They come out of the Woodwork
      There are Guru’s for everything but are they truly experts or just writing about what they think is the best path to take? If the advice is free, take the information and check the validity by testing theories before you spend money. There is no free lunch, just plan on testing with a small amount of outlay before you order the full meal deal.
