Is social media a fad?



For many of my coaching clients, Twitter, Facebook, blogs and sometimes even websites are as foreign to them as the moon. I have spent a lot of time educating them about the importance in 2009 of creating a presence not just on stage, but on the social media stage. And it's working! My clients are starting blogs, joining social networking sites, and getting their names, products and services out there.

How about you? Are you still resisting? Watch this video. I hope it changes your mind. (Thanks to Chris Spagnuolo at EdgeHopper for the heads up on this video.)

Lisa:

Yes, a fantastic video! Thanks for sharing it.

I have had similar experiences to yours over the past year, especially with clients updating Web sites (one for the first time in ten years!) and starting blogs. I've found that once I do the initial set up for them and walk them through some instruction, they lose their fear and see the advantages --and fun-- of working those two mediums.

Social networking is still an uphill battle, particularly with the temperamental interface on Facebook, but I do have some business clients posting profiles and successfully communicating on LinkedIn for the first time.

These are definitely exciting times-- if you can keep up!

Thanks, again,

fyi
Safari can’t open the page “http://edgehopper.com/” because it could not connect to the server “edgehopper.com”.

I'm going to post this video everywhere! Let's get some momentum going.

Thanks for the heads up that Edgehopper isn't opening. I've let Chris know.
