On Listening
“The difference between listening and pretending to listen, I discovered, is enormous. One is fluid, the other is rigid. One is alive, the other is stuffed. Eventually, I found a radical way of thinking about listening. Real listening is a willingness to let the other person change you. When I’m willing to let them change me, something happens between us that’s more interesting than a pair of dueling monologues.”

What is a Social Media Consultant?
Apart from driving the proliferation of cat photos on social media, what exactly do they do?

On our last live  #RayBunch  show of the season - http://goo.gl/cq84GQ we took a look at the confusion businesses have with titles.

Because many small businesses in particular, don't understand the many layers of social marketing, their first move to find help is to do a search for a Social Media Consultant.

Is this why over 4,700 Twitter bios on FollowWonk include "social media consultant?_

As +B.L. Ochman said in the show:
"There's no such thing a s social media. It's all just media."

Check out the show and post here: http://rayhiltz.com/what-is-a-social-media-consultant/ for other contributions from  +Jessica Dewell +Scott Scowcroft and +Stan Bush 
Post also includes video and podcast versions of the show.

Introduction
The great Wayne Gretzky once said, “Skate to where the puck is going to be, not where it has been.”

With that in mind, I took a year to listen & learn about social media. It took about nine months to feel as if I really “got it” (and another three to figure out my "niche”).

So, here is what I learned.

  • Secrets of social media for small business
  • Give it the best you’ve got and give it away freely.
  • As in real life, it takes time to build trusting relationships.
  • Also just as in real life, sincerity, honesty and an open heart help.
  • When the customer/client/patient is ready to buy/act/choose,
  • You’ will already be there, ready to sell/provide/serve.
  • Consider it the “Universal Principle of Reciprocity.”
In other words,  ”Skate to where the puck is going to be.

Bragging rights
Managed Seattle/King County's Public Access cable channel 29/72 for most of the 1980's and 1990's. What I didn't learn about "building community" then, I'm making up for now with Google Plus and Hangouts on Air.
