When I hired my Member Services Coordinator, one of the top five questions was, "Do you know how to use Facebook?" She replied, "I check my Facebook as soon as I open my eyes." She got the job.
She has built a following for my start-up business and I credit our Social Media efforts with much of the word-of-mouth buzz SEADAC is getting! As I am tightening my advertising budget for 2010 I am less stressed knowing that we can utilze Social Media to keep our name in front of people. Check out Social Media Revolution on You Tube if you don't think Tweeting and Facebooking is important!Thanks Jennifer for letting us know what it's doing for you in the Southeast. However, I've read some reports that the recession is faring differently in different parts of the country.
Tomorrow we'll hear from Niki VanEch on what social media is doing for her in the Washington, DC area.
