I recently learned about +Gary Vaynerchuk and have been watching every video, ordering every book, and reading everything I can about this guy online. I genuinely like him and find myself attracted to him (not in that way, keep your panties on) because he lives by everything I've ever believed in business and have been FIRED for in the past which is using  #socialmedia   and #contentmarketing  to:

PROVIDE INTENSE VALUE
BUILD TRUST
THEN ASK FOR A SALE

My question to you is: who's your Gary Vee?

5 Social Media Tips Every Startup Should Know by +Hasan Saleem 

[Article excerpt]

"Social media is often the last thing on the to-do list for most startups – there’s always seemingly something more important that takes priority (raising capital, getting clients and tweaking products/services) and it usually gets pushed to the bottom of the slush pile.

But social media is just as important, if not more, than any of those things. It is – or should be – a critical part of your overall brand. A solid social media footprint might just be enough to convince investors to throw in another round of financing – or attract the attention of clients and vendors that you never even thought of.

Startups live AND die by social media – it’s where and how they build their brand. A killer social media strategy isn’t a want; it’s a must-have, particularly if you want to differentiate your startup from the competition.

So before you go on social media aimlessly, keep these five tips in mind:

1. Develop a clear strategy. If your “strategy” consists of throwing a page up on Facebook or Twitter and just hoping you’ll get a million followers with sheer luck, think again. You need a plan – a real one, with timelines, milestones, goals and benchmarks."

An effective social media strategy should help you to:

> Identify your audience. 
> Solidify your goals. 
> Determine your social media brand. 
> Pick your medium.

Introduction

What I love: online entrepreneurship, nutrition, travel, adventure, psychology, juggling,  a good book, history, exploration

I enjoy the company of creative minds, free thinkers. I love meeting people from all over the world who know what it's like to take a chance on something.

My ideal evening is spent on a starry rooftop with my better half...the slightest breeze in the air, sipping on a bottle of Merlot, to the tunes of Duke Ellington, Ella Fitzgerald, and my favourite Harry Connick Jr ;)

I'm a published poet ...but that's another story for another day...
