Ambitious Entrepreneurs - Know Your Social Media Ps & Qs?

If so, you can achieve "your 15 minutes of fame!"

As a small business owner or entrepreneur, keeping up with social media can keep you breathless.  Social media moves 24/7/365.

Some new media and technology online resource outlets have been known to post in excess of 40 updates per day.

And there are oodles of outlets!

For the newbie, it becomes like a tornado of icons and letters and acronyms (oh, my!).

The ABCs

A - Analytics

B - Blogging

C- Conversion

If those aren't enough, there's ROI to contend with (Return On Investment).

Of course...

The Big Three

  • Facebook
  • LinkedIn
  • Twitter

Hopefully you're familiar with those and doing okay.  (If not, I know a good social media consultant).


Don't forget some other popular venues: Empire Avenue, SlideShare, tumblr, and YouTube.

The XYZs

Did you even know about these?


Y - Yelp

Z - Zahmoo

Overwhelmed...?  Understandable.

The Ps & Qs

Small business owners and entrepreneurs can do well with the following:

  • Pictures.
  • Podcasts.
  • QR Codes.
  • Quora.

These are all newer, interesting, fairly easy, and can attract a lot of attention from followers and potential customers!

Taming The Alphabet

Annemarie Cross hosted Keri Jaehnig of Idea Girl Media on her podcast, The Ambitious Entrepreneur!If you've visited before, you might remember this article where I introduced Annemarie Cross - A Branding Specialist and Business Coach.  From Australia, she hosts the WebTalkRadio show, Ambitious Entrepreneur.

Annemarie was gracious enough to have me as a guest of her podcast to talk about Quora.

Good Things Come In Pairs

For me, I got to talk about Quora - the social network - and become more familiar with Podcasting.

Annemarie's audience was lucky enough to hear about two tools that can really bring life and credibility to your online marketing plan:

  • Quora.
  • QR Codes.

Quora is like the Wikipedia of questions - a social network where professionals can answer questions in their field to bring credibility to themselves and establish themselves as the experts they are.

QR Codes - a relatively new tool and technology - can lead people more directly to small business owners and entrepreneurs through their smart phones.  Stephanie True Moss is the second guest on Annemarie's show.
