And because of that, I've always tried to share the knowledge I've learned. I don't believe in keeping secrets, even though sometimes finding any amount of success is kind of like finding a honey hole when you're fishing. I'm not saying I'm successful, but I have had interesting people reach out to me in the last few days about social media strategy, Google authorship, YouTube, verification, SEO, Google search... and more. From journalists, to emergency officials... to social media hiring managers... it's been really interesting to see people reach out and ask how to better use social media for their companies. (Am I in the wrong business?! Should I be consulting?! jk)
I want to help! I have a lot more ideas of where I think social media can be truly helpful and not just a "fun" bell and whistle... and you will probably start seeing that in my newscasts. But in the meantime, here's the compilation I put together to demonstrate how I've been using social media platforms. Since this submission, I have actually gone in different directions, but that's the nature of the beast.
