Now think about this for a minute.
Even kids in Kindergarten are using IPads!
Fifty percent of the world’s population is under 30 years old and they know more about technology than any other generation!
Social Media is about people – like it or not, it’s a new way of building relationships.
There are 700 million members on Facebook. Almost 1 billion! How many of you can honesty say you can’t start the day without checking Facebook? It used to be that I couldn’t wait to check my email but nowadays the first thing I do is check my FB page BEFORE I check emails. Imagine that!
Take a look at this powerful video:
So after having a conversation with my business manager and watching this video, I finally put up my very first professional speaking/author page on Facebook and ask that you take a look around, see never before seen photos and videos. Then if you like it, there’s that famous “LIKE” button.
Hope you found this very short article to be of value to you. It’s a reminder that if you have a business or want to start one, social media is the new “advertising.” I predict print advertisements will disappear because social media is much more powerful and eye-catching. It’s continually evolving and is here to stay. Therefore, if you haven’t already done so, I suggest you create yourself a page on Facebook – actually two. One personal and one for business. And let me know if you want me to “Like” it!
In closing, I think you’ll get a kick out of this humorous video. For the first time in my life, I got dunked in a tank of water in the name of charity at a local Art Walk in Fairfield, Iowa.
Let me tell you, I was SORE for a few days!!
