    Great topic! You provide good tips many peeps overlook. My 2 cents weigh in #5. If a brand or company isn’t ready to dedicate budget or resources to Twitter/FB prior to starting accounts/pages, I’d work to find it. I’d also challenge that consultant or agency to determine if FB or Twitter are the right communities for you and if so, develop a content strategy on how to participate. Don’t just set up an account/page and park your brand assets.

      Nothing worse than looking at a blank FB page or Twitter account that is sitting there dormant! Great point Annie!

    Love all of your posts. The Contracting Trade, and so many others, are perfect for the venues offered by Social media. And it is easy to use these tools to Focus LOCAL.

    I just posted an article addressing that issue

    Several local Contractors, Manufacturers, Retailers and Professional Service providers are realizing the benefit. Of course they have been receptive to consulting and willing to ACT

    I really enjoy your articles and have learned a lot from you messages! I have been using social media for about 2 yrs now and have connected with a lot of people. Have new contractors looking at our business because of social media that other wise wouldn’t have ever meet. Keep up the great work!!
