Greetings from Paris everyone! This month’s Top 10 HOT list is being brought to you from a little apartment in the Latin Quarter in Paris, France where I will be working this Fall. If you want to keep an eye on what I’m doing, follow me on my travel blog at 2SistersinParis.
I am always looking for adventure and ways to make business more exciting and this year I have travelled to Paris to take on a few creative projects that are a bit out-of-the-box for me. I will talk more about that in later posts. My wonderful team is available to handle any physical needs my clients and the business may have while I am away. But with technology, we are never really “away” – at least we don’t have to be – so I am available via email, phone, SKYPE, Facebook, etc!
Using Social Media to develop relationships
A very cool thing about this trip is that I will be meeting with several people – now my friends – that I met on Facebook. Over the last 4-12 months we have been communicating, and as a result have developed friendships that span thousands of miles. I will be meeting with them to enjoy food, wine and laughter, and also to brainstorm marketing and discuss new projects. This is the “magic” of social media and global connectivity. If you have not made the leap into Social Media marketing for your business, it’s time you do. If you have jumped in but can’t make sense of how it can “benefit” you (other than wasting a lot of time), I can help!
Lyric Marketing has a Social Media management program that is offered for a range of budgets. We call it our “Online Reputation Managment and PR Program”. Fun huh? (And you didn’t even know you needed to watch your “reputation” online, did you?) Simply, we will create your online presence and tell your story via social media – creating what I love to call a “celebrity voice”. The strategy we use creates AWARENESS of you and your business, garners CONSIDERATION, and creates PREFERENCE/ACTION – and you know what that means, increased business!
It is almost 4th quarter 2012, it is time to get your strategy in line for next year. Let Lyric Marketing handle your online marketing and PR for you. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and let’s discuss ideas for your current marketing – right here from Paris! When you email me, put CELEBRITY VOICE in the subject line and I will also send you my presentation on “Creating the Celebrity Voice”. This presentation will help you understand the ADVANTAGE of becoming a “KEY INFLUENCER” in your market and how that can mean increased business and more relationships with your friends, followers and contacts.
Ummmm, I am smelling the fresh baked goodies from the Patisserie below my apartment, going to go grab a cappuccino and explore the sweeter side of the Parisian life!
Love & Peace,
