  2. Podcasting can be easy and convenient, especially if you enjoy talking
  3. It is inexpensive and no major equipment is required

Here’s Angie Swartz with the weekly Social Media Minute to further explain the benefits of content:

Social Media MADE “The Guild” Succeed!

by Lemon Drop on August 24, 2010

This year at the famous San Diego Comic-Con I was given a mission to seek out Felica Day and the other cast members of “The Guild.” Admittedly, I had no idea what the show was about or why it was important until I got to the booth. As it turns out, I’ve been missing out! “The Guild” is especially interesting because the show is an online Felica Day, Creater and Main Character of The Guildseries!

Last week Facebook announced a new addition to the number one social networking website called Places.  Places allows Facebook users with a smart phone to “check in” where they are at in real time.  If you are sitting in your favorite restaurant, going to a show, or just strolling on your favorite path by the beach you can now check in using facebook places on iphonefacebook places.

How Do You Use Twitter for Business?

by Lemon Drop on August 13, 2010

You should be using Twitter for your business! As we have said again and again with enthusiasm, Twitter is a very valuable social media tool for business! It is second in searches to Google, SECOND! With over 22 billion searches, you can be assured many are business related. So the question to ask yourself is where are you, your company and maybe more important where are your competitors showing up in all of these Twitter searches?

Yes I did say using Facebook for business!  Many times when I am speaking in front of a group about Social Media for business or providing Social Media consulting services to one of our clients and Facebook comes up I often get a blank stare.  It seems many business owners do not understand how they can receive referrals, new customers, and new business from facebook.

Facebook is the #1 website online.  More people are on Facebook then any other website, it’s where people are spending time.  As a business owner you want to position yourself and your business where people spend their time.  This makes Facebook a very important tool which could generate a huge amount of referrals for you and your business.

Remember eating sweet, refreshing watermelon on those hot summer nights as a child?  The juice would drip down your chin and you’d suck out last drops from the white red white blue social media martiniand green rind. Maybe you ate that watermelon slice under the 4th of July fireworks.  Have you ever thought as you watched those bits of fire explode across the sky, how lucky you were to be eating that watermelon tasting of the succulent freedom that is the United States?  The Revolution that is celebrated on the 4th of July brought us all these sweet memories and an impressive nation that grew from tiny colonies.  Now that your tastes have matured into the ambitious adult that you are, consider taking on more mature tastes this 4th of July with our highly recommended watermelon martini; it’s full of that same sweet pink fruit juice that you remember but adds a little kick to your taste buds.

Why Should My Company Use Social Media?

by Alan Underkofler on May 20, 2010

I was just asked this question today from a new client.  Why should my company use Social Media?  The person asking intuitively knows their company should be using Social Media specifically a company blog, Linkedin, Facebook, and why-highway-signTwitter.  And the reason why they know they should be more active in Social Media is because they are seeing their customers use Social Media more and more.  Customers are viewing Facebook and Twitter on their iPhone, Driod phone, and now of course their iPad.

If you are a business with a physical presence, you will want to check out Foursquare. Foursquare is not the game that you played in grade school but a Location Based Service (LBS) that keeps track of the users whereabouts and lets users “friends” know where they are at a given time. Foursquare started out a little over a year ago and quickly grew as a result of the growing mobile web app market, by word-of-mouth and by using social media. In over one year, Foursquare has aggregated over 725,000 users with over 1.4 million venues with 1200+ offering specials and 22 million+ check-ins, and it is growing everyday. There is no question that Location Based Marketing is an up-and-coming way to market your business. If you are a location-based business with customers with mobile web phone capabilities here are some things you can do if you are a business participating on Foursquare:
