The secret is to stop seeing social media as another advertising platform and instead see it as a chance to really connect with and engage in conversation with customers (both current and potential) without having to be in the same physical space with them.  Show them the non-selling side of your business.  What is your corporate culture? What else do the people who are part of your business do besides try to make money? 

The people I know who have a business who are the most successful on social media don't even talk about their business or its products on social media.  Instead, they engage with people about their hobbies and outside interests. 

For example, fantasy author Margaret Weiss very rarely talks about writing or her books on Face Book.  The rare times she does, it's never an advert. Rather, she talks about the ups and downs, frustrations and occasional triumphs of writing in general.   The vast majority of the time, she talks about her dogs and her adventures in doing Flyball competitions with them.  People love it! She has hundreds of FB friends and most of the time, they are connecting with her through the dogs.  If they want to see more about her business, they can click on her name in blue and go to her main FB page where the links to her business websites are.

Sometimes when someone on FB asks her a question or makes a comment that really resonates with her, she'll reply to them specifically rather than just replying to all of FB in general.  Getting a personal reply on Social Media from someone with hundreds of followers is a powerful thing.

Introduction
Author and social media strategist. Co-author of The Art of Social Media: Power Tips for Power Users with Guy Kawasaki. 

Social media is my passion. And my job. I'm here sharing my professional experience working day to day in the trenches of social media, marketing, and blogging. I work with global brands and leaders in the social media sphere every day. I've spearheaded successful social-media campaigns for Motorola, Audi, Canva, Google, and Virgin as well as having been a brand ambassador for Kimpton Hotels. I work with the best brands and make them even better!

I'll share tips and tricks, provide positive inspiration and answer social media questions through the content that I create and curate. I'm active across all social media platforms with a special focus on visual marketing and Pinterest.

What sets me apart? I'm an innovative idea girl that follows through and gets the job done. Social media is my career, not just a hobby. If you're interested in how I do what I do, I wrote The Art of Social Media to help explain it.

If you're interested in having me speak at your next conference or event, please contact me.



I travel frequently and love to share my experiences and photos. I love photography! I'm currently shooting with a Fuji X100S and my mobile. 

You can find my writing on my blog  PegFitzpatrick.com. I'm also a Huffington Post contributor and Co-Editor-in-Chief at 12 Most.
