It’s our 50th day in the Social Media Challenge! Now that’s worth celebrating.
We started 2013 with three goals to make our Social Media a success:
I’m writing late as I was at Breakout Bootcamp this evening – #1 check
I’m writing more lists and delegating more tasks #2 check
#3 still needs some work 😉
As we’re celebrating a milestone, I thought we should give away the same prize, as we did when we hit 1000 Facebook Likes. Who would like to win a complete set of our DVD Social Media 101 & 201 workshops? All you need do is go onto Twitter, find me @JDGEM and type in our hashtag #SMC90. We’ll announce a random winner on Thursday’s post.
Business & Beyond With Twitter! with Trilby JeevesIf you read my first guest post on We Make Stuff Happen, you will know I went into Twitter kicking and screaming (okay… a little dramatic but I AM an actor, after all). When the light bulb illuminated the possibilities, I pulled my chair up and got the unexpected.
How many times have I heard “I don’t care what you ate for breakfast” when met with resistance to the seemingly gossipy platform. “Oh, you’d be surprised by how many people actually like knowing what you ate.” It’s the human condition. We want to know we’re similar. Or, we want to know alternative ways, other types of cereals or other cultures’ strange morning habits.
Jonathan, this time, asked me about some of my positive interesting twitter stories.
Early on in my Twitterland, my partner and I were heading to Singapore to give a “Directing the Actor” workshop at Media Corp (big television producing company). Our workshop design needed two actors for the scenes we would prep for the directing students. Well, one of the actors was obviously me, and a local actor would fit our budget, but, who?
I think you know the answer. Yes, twitter came through in spades. I tweeted our challenge and someone leapt in to help us. This gentle man not only committed his time and energy to our workshop, he also treated us to a fabulous Singapore meal. Thank you twitter!
I have “met” extraordinary people on twitter – people who in the old days would be out of reach. I have met theatre artists with whom I’ve exchanged ideas and advice. I have met authors such as Daniel H. Pink and Chris Brogan with whom I have direct contact. And, people like Kevin Knebl who truly has become a friend – OUR friend, hey, Jonathan?
I have had tips on renting theatre space in LA. I’ve seen a dress rehearsal of a Cirque de Soleil show (Kooza) because of first meeting the lead clown on Twitter!
So… Twitter isn’t just about business. It also can be about having a worldwide network of people ready to be there for you. Vive le Twitter! – Trilby
And I could join Trilby in adding many more examples of wonderful connections made through Social Media.
I’m sure immersing yourself in our DVD workshops could help alot! All you need do to enter to win is find me on Twitter @jdgem and type #SMC90. You can add anthing else you like as long as it’s less that 140 characters 😉
