This email made my day. It's exactly what I aim for, making #SocialMedia easy to learn and implement: 

"You have such a great way of explaining this "social media" stuff and keeping it in lay terms."

If you haven't checked out my One-Year Social Media Challenge, be sure to do so! http://ibloom.co/social-media-challenge/

Have you ever taken the #StrengthsFinder Assessment? If not, I highly encourage you to do so. Once I took the assessment, I had such a better understanding of myself and the way I tick.

One of my "strengths" is Empathy and according to StrengthsFinder, "You can sense the emotions of those around you. You can feel what they are feeling as though their feelings are your own."  

It's no wonder why this week has been so hard for me as I see my dear friend hurt. But having an understanding of who I am, allows me to see how I can use my strengths to live out the calling that God has placed on my life.

If you have not taken this assessment, I highly encourage you to do so. Stop trying to figure everyone else out and instead, figure out the YOU that God has created! #BeYou

I don't know why I'm continually shocked at opportunities that businesses and organizations are missing on #SocialMedia.

This week, I had a local university "favorite" 3 of my tweets that were about their campus. All positive. But you know what, they only "favorited" the tweets, not once did they reach out to engage with me. YIKES!

What if I was a prospective student?
What if I had a child that was looking to attend that school?

They could have made a really big impact by joining in the conversation, asking me questions, ENGAGING! 

Hmmmm...I'm thinking they need me to come in and train their social media staff! #HigherEducation #SocialMediaMarketing

In life, sometimes you have to be willing to give something up in order to experience the movement of God in your life. Don't let people or things become your idol. #BeDifferent

Key #Business  Tip: Before anyone will buy from you, they have to know that you truly are an expert in your field. They have to see the value that you provide. Don't expect people to purchase your products and services without proving to them that they not only need you, but that you know your stuff.

You can do this through:

* Free Downloads
* Free Webinars
* Quick 1-2 minute videos where you share a tip
* Posting valuable tips that your audience can use right away

    Social Media Specialist and Project Manager, 2013 - present
    As the Social Media Specialist for iBloom, I LOVE helping businesses, both large and small, with strategy, implementation and monitoring of their online presence. Social media provides business owners a unique opportunity to make a positive and personal impact on their audience! It is truly my joy and passion to help businesses utilize social media platforms in ways that will create an awareness of their business. Furthermore, I want businesses to see how social media can be an avenue where business owners can build relationships with clients that will turn a business into a life changing community! I also really enjoy bringing order out of chaos while implementing and sustaining the mission and goals of an organization. I love new projects and challenges and might be a bit OCD when it comes to doing everything with efficiency and promptness!

Introduction

As the Social Media Specialist for iBloom, my passion is to help businesses, both large and small, with strategy, implementation, monitoring and training of their online presence. I have been able to assist a variety of businesses in creating their brand awareness on one of the largest social media platforms. Additionally, I have had the opportunity to not only train and work with a recognized Forbes Top 20 Social Media Influencer, but I also had the opportunity to train and help a variety of business owners on a variety of social media topics including:


Social Media Content Management
Social Media Lead Generation
Twitter Strategies
Facebook Strategies
List Building Using Social Media
Social Media Strategy Development
Facebook Advertising

As a former Senior Social Media Account Executive for a social media marketing firm, I had the opportunity to lead a team who worked collaboratively on a variety of corporate accounts. These accounts included: 

* taking a client from the "concept" stage of development to a large interconnected social media platform. Within a 90-day social media growth campaign, I helped generate 17,000 new Facebook likes and 18,000 new Twitter followers. 

* developing, building and managing a social media strategy for a business school whose social media platform was ranked as the 16th best across all accredited business schools (700+). 

* developing from scratch the social media presence for a leading travel agency that has over 150 travel agents working in several offices across the southeast. I helped manage the content, growth, and engagement on Facebook and Twitter. The company now dominates most of the competition with 25,000 likes on Facebook and 16,000 followers on Twitter. 

I am the author of: “My Soul Mission: A Step-by-Step Guide to Helping Students Discover Their Unique Soul Mission." I am also nearing completion of my Doctorate in Curriculum Development/Instructional Leadership.
