Power Tip #6 is Be Connected with your Community (See Power Tip #5) for Social Media For Women Events Success. This power tip is part of day 6 Social Media Club South Florida 30-Day Blogging Challenge #SMCSFBlogOff!
Since I love music (See Power Tip #3), I am inspired to write Power Tip #6 while listening to Billboard Hot 100 Playlist by Billboard.com on Spotify…where people listen to millions of songs for free. I love to be connected with the latest and most listened to songs being created by artists. I share the playlist below for you to also listen and enjoy!
It is important to be connected with your community to:
- listen to understand your community needs;
- engage to build mutual trust;
- and create solutions for inspire action.
There are several ways you can be connected with your community. Each person using the internet and mobile phone has an email address so he/she can be connected via their email and social media networks. One way to be connected is using email and social media marketing campaigns. There are several email marketing solutions available that also integrate social media. For example, I use Constant Contact so I connect with SocialBizMembers.com Community. The advantage to use an email marketing solution is that I create one email message that gets distributed to the community at the same time by the click of a button. I also create separate group lists to remind myself where I first met fellow community members. My purpose (See Power Tip #2) is to be connected with the community to listen so I understand their needs, engage to build mutual trust, and create solutions to inspire action.
To Be Consistent is key (See next Power Tip #7 Be Consistent – Social Media For Women Events Success.) The more you stay connected with adding value to your community, the more inspired action is created for the greater good of the community.
There are several ways to collect email addresses for your community. One way is to leverage the power of social media. For example, I use SocialBizMembers.com Facebook page to invite new community members to join. (See photos below.)
