7 steps for connecting and engaging journalists on social media

[guest post by Debbie Leven] You want to get the word out about your business. I get it. That’s exactly why you are reading this blog. And, you know that social media is an incredibly powerful tool for connecting and engaging with exactly those people you want to get in front of.
But, if you’re not using social media to connect and engage with the media too then you could be missing a trick. Why? Because, journalists are using social media just like you and they want to hear from people who have ideas and views that will help them to do their jobs.

Think Outside the Social Media Systems Box

[guest post by Mallie Rydzik]

Hootsuite, Buffer, Edgar, Latergramme…they’re all great tools, but they’re also old news.

As smart business owners, you know the importance of hanging out where your customers are.

But people aren’t on social media to be sold to. So how do you “hang out” AND sell your products and services to all those potential clients without feeling sleazy and pushy??
