There are only 2 sides to social media and owning a home business. They are…..
Twitter in social Media has become part of the communication culture in the Social Media and web 2.0 Zone. There are a lot of great blogs out there that write about twitter excusively including Darren Rowse’s “TwiTip” and “Twitter handbook“ by Deb Micek and Warren Whitlock.
But there are three HUGE Mistakes that people seem to make with their twitter tweets.
Are you making these critical mistakes and what are they doing to your marketing and your brand??
There are 3 questions in social media you can ask
1. How can you help ME ?
2. How can I help YOU ?
3. How can I SERVE YOU ?
The last question is a HUGE difference between the other two. Serving in social media marketing requires GIVING and GOING that extra mile that most will not. SERVING is not limited to helping, but it soars to the level of ONLY YOU. You become so valuable to them they think of ONLY YOU concerning your message.
That is the place you want to be in. ONLY YOU are thought of when it comes time to move on your message and products.
That is the power of social media- being on the top of their mind when it is time to purchase or hire for their needs.
Social Media is a serving zone.
There are really only 2 kinds of folks that are in social media marketing.
Ones that are looking to create VOLUME in their business, and Ones that are looking to give VALUE in their conversations. One is focused on self, and the other is focused on Success.
Volume is great, and needed. But the only place where Volume comes before VALUE …is the dictionary.

In the blizzard of folks in social media and home businesses-HOW do you set yourself APART from the crowd?
Do and say what the crowd is NOT saying and doing, and GIVE MORE than the crowd would ever think to give in VALUE in your message.
“De-Crowd” yourself and quit looking at the crowd, thinking like the crowd, talking like the crowd, and behaving like the crowd. OPPOSE the norm and OPEN UP new doors and ways to do things that you are marketing and getting your message out.
What can you do and say that will be so brilliant it will JOLT people into NEW THINKING and NEW WAYS to solve their problems?

Here is a FIRE Nugget for today:
FIRE Nugget: One of the challenges you have is getting noticed on the social sites. LOTS of folks on them. Most people are looking for something of VALUE to CONNECT to. YOU be that VALUE with your message. Give people something so Valuable they will Connect to you and talk ABOUT YOU to others. I call it “Value-tising.” Your Message becomes the Valuable resource and an advertisement at the same time. But it ALL starts with VALUE. http://www.newrulesofhomebusiness.com
