I just returned from an amazing social media seminar put on by Glazer-Kennedy Insider Circle (GKIC) in Baltimore. While I was at the seminar, I took a side trip to the famous Gerogetown Cupcakes in DC so that I could post a review to my new cupcake blog The Big Fat Cupcake. Because I stood in line so long for these special cupcakes, I made a decision to purchase two dozen, then some how use them at the seminar to help bring attention to me and my blog.
Thus Social Media Cucpakes was born!! Why cupcakes you say?
You see GKIC is always preaching about doing something outrageous with your business. So while I was sitting at this amazing seminar, a new business idea began baking in my head.
What I have learned from GKIC:
1. Do what you love and you WILL succeed!
2. Be Outrageous! Stand out and be different, then you will be noticed!
3. When you get an idea, implement it immediately.
4. Don’t worry about what it looks like, just do it!!
So here I stand, doing what I love. Providing yummy morsels of social media goodness along side a really cute and great tasting cupcake.
Being outrageous by delivering my social media information in a different and inciting way.
Implementing my idea immediately! While at the conference I purchased my domain name, created a twitter account, and gmail address for the business. All from my iPhone!
From these conferences, I have learned video sells. So, I used my new found twitter tools, posted on my new twitter account for those at the event to find me and I would give them a free cupcake! In exchange all I asked for was a brief video with a great social media tip. It worked!!
I will be posting a few videos each week while I am building my blog and web presence. Each video will have an amazing bit of social media goodness inside it. Along with the videos, I will expand on what each person spoke about. Providing links and educating you more on how to implement these tips in your business.
