These examples are simple, but they prove a point.
Uses of social media have to be timely or they lose their value. The stuff below works, and impresses me, right now, but it’ll become common later. Use them before that to leave an impact, ok?
- FAIT ICI, a local shop that focuses on local, organic food is opening next door to the cafÃ© I sit in every day to write these blog posts. Last week, they put up the banner and I got curious as to what store was going to open. When I checked my email a few days ago, there was an invite to their opening. Jackson Wightman saw that I kept logging in nearby, saw my tweets about organic meat andÂ eating paleo, and figures I’m interested. I am impressed, and tell him so.
- COSSETTE, a pretty huge an marketing agency in town. There are enough employees using the service there that it keeps trending when they login.Â I see this because I use 4sq multiple times a day.ï»¿ This paints Cossette’s as being on the cutting edge, and aware, of what’s new in social software. Who would I hire if I saw this and wanted to do LBS stuff? Right.
None of these things lead to profit directly, but all of them leave an impression and help me see these businesses differently. All of them are cheap or free, and if you have a business, you can use them too.
