Storified by Ileane Smith· Sat, Jan 12 2013 04:11:31

Absolutely, and it’s starting to open up in every niche as #content #marketing has gone mainstream #SocialStratContent Vitamin
RT @Ileane: I knew @TheSalesLion was good people years ago when I saw that he is using @commentluv #socialstratAndy Bailey
RT @AllieRambles: G+ seems to be wanting to integrate social with SEO with things like authorship and the +1. #socialstratLaunch.Grow.Joy.
@TheSalesLion Appreciate that Marcus! Will definitely join the next #socialstrat. So it’s every Wednesday at what time?Vocus
Hi @remi_vladuceanu thanks for the RT and for joining in the chat yesterday #socialstratIleane Smith
@alyssaavant http://bloggersmakemoney.com/be-at-my-first-ever-social-media-event/ Sounds like they might do them on a regular basis. #SocialStratJulie
@mamamakesmoney what’s this chat? #SocialStratAlyssa Avant
Yes it is an impressive group! @petertrapasso @Remi_Vladuceanu @copyblogger @ProBlogging #SocialStratJulie
@Remi_Vladuceanu @copyblogger @ProBlogging Hi Remi, Brian, and Darren! Impressive group in attendance for this inaugural chat. #SocialStratPeter Trapasso
@copyblogger Good point. Appreciate the insights :) #socialstratKev Kaye
@KevKaye Yep. Plus a lack of consistency and focus. One guest post is not going to make you. #SocialStratBrian Clark
copyblogger: @TheSalesLion There’s an idea. ;-) #SocialStrat http://dlvr.it/2mb2XMDarren
RT @RobSkidmoreMe: #SocialStrat I actually just dove into Google+ today. It makes interaction incredibly easy. So I vote yes. #socialstratRemi Vladuceanu
RT @Ileane: Tagline from my first blog in 2009: "I’m here to learn, to teach and to connect!" < Still true today. #socialstratRemi Vladuceanu
@copyblogger You’re right. And I think effectiveness suffers simply due too many options, and poor channel selection. #socialstratKev Kaye
@KevKaye It’s the same basic scenario. Is writing for the New York Times any less effective 100 years later. ;-) #SocialStratBrian Clark
@copyblogger I agree that effectiveness is strong when it initially opens up in a niche. What do u think will happen over time? #socialstratKev Kaye
@KevKaye @TheSalesLion Absolutely, and it’s starting to open up in every niche as content marketing has gone mainstream #SocialStratBrian Clark
@TheSalesLion There’s an idea. ;-) #SocialStratBrian Clark
RT @mamamakesmoney: @AllieRambles @TheSalesLion love hearing about new podcasts! #SocialStrat < be sure to check out mine too.Ileane Smith
@copyblogger This, my friend, is the type of panel debate needed at one of them dang social media conferences out there ;-) #SocialStratMarcus Sheridan
@TheSalesLion So, I’d argue it’s easier to get going now for solos with guest posting than when it was all single author. #SocialStratBrian Clark
@copyblogger That would be an understatement. It would actually make for a great article someday. #SocialStratMarcus Sheridan
@copyblogger Hmm. Good point. #socialstratRob Skidmore
@Ileane You are welcome! #SocialStratWade Harman
@AllieRambles @thesaleslion love hearing about new podcasts! #SocialStratJulie
RT @thesaleslion: Content that generates leads&sales, that’s my kind. Rest makes us feel good, but if it don’t pay the bills… #SocialStratArnie Kuenn
@RobSkidmoreMe Appreciate you my man, talk soon. #SocialStratMarcus Sheridan
@TheSalesLion I’ll say that we’ve helped launch a lot of businesses and careers by giving other authors access to our audience. #SocialStratBrian Clark
RT @Ileane: Tagline from my first blog in 2009: "I’m here to learn, to teach and to connect!" < Still true today. #socialstratMichael J Craig
@AllieRambles Thank you more!!!!! :-) #SocialStratMarcus Sheridan
Thanks for inviting me @makemyblogmoney #socialstratIleane Smith
@Vocus Yep, might have to become a regular series, very fun indeed. Keep up the great content btw over there at Vocus Blog. #SocialStratMarcus Sheridan
@TheSalesLion You’re The Best #SocialStrat!Wade Harman
@TheSalesLion Thanks Marcus. Always good to connect with you. #socialstratRob Skidmore
@thesaleslion Thanks for being a great teacher. I’ll be waiting for more podcasts. :-) #socialstratAllie
@TheSalesLion Is #socialstrat a regular chat? I think it was great!Kev Kaye
Gnight all, thanks for attending/yapping/debating/listening and all that other stuff ;-) #SocialStratMarcus Sheridan
@TheSalesLion New chat? #SocialStrat (I like the sound of this)Vocus
Have a great night!! RT @MamaMakesMoney: Thank you everyone! #socialstratAllie
RT @Ileane: 99% of my content is about problem solving. 1% is to say thank you to everyone #socialstratAllie
Thank you guys for doing this @TheSalesLion @Ileane @AllieRambles I must go fix supper! #socialstratWade Harman
Thank you everyone! #socialstratJulie
Geez, this hour just went really dang fast. I could go on and on, but no one would be following me in the morning ;-) #SocialStratMarcus Sheridan
99% of my content is about problem solving. 1% is to say thank you to everyone #socialstratIleane Smith
@makemyblogmoney I will take you up on it. :-) #socialstratRob Skidmore
@RobSkidmoreMe @copyblogger Keep in mind I’m not crying the blues for anyone with this, it’s just is the path we’re all on. #SocialStratMarcus Sheridan
Have to go and get the wifey. Enjoyed chatting with y’all #socialstratRob Skidmore
You too! Always a pleasure! Miss Ileane! RT @Ileane: @AllieRambles take care! Nice chatting with you! #socialstratAllie
You too! RT @RobSkidmoreMe: @AllieRambles Thank you. enjoyed your thoughts. #socialstratAllie
@RobSkidmoreMe the guest post invitation still stands lol #socialstratWade Harman
@AllieRambles take care! Nice chatting with you! #socialstratIleane Smith
That’s best content RT @KevKaye: . I do agree that most of the time content should have direct problem solving utility #socialstratAllie
@KevKaye Absolutely. You must read @jaybaer ‘s new book coming out called "Youtility". Very powerful read. #SocialStratMarcus Sheridan
@AllieRambles Thank you. enjoyed your thoughts. #socialstratRob Skidmore
@copyblogger As a solopreneur, it’s just that much harder for me to get going. Might have to take out the solo. #WantToBeHan #socialstratRob Skidmore
RT @TheSalesLion: @copyblogger Not sad in the sense of quality content. Sad for the solos that have a bigger mountain. #socialstratIleane Smith
@TheSalesLion …that being said. I do agree that most of the time content should have direct problem solving utility :) #socialstratKev Kaye
@copyblogger You actually bring up a great point, and that is the decision to become a "media company" or a singular brand. #SocialStratMarcus Sheridan
@makemyblogmoney I had to step out and get the kids but I wouldn’t miss this opp. THX a bunch! #socialstratAllie
@Copyblogger @TheSalesLion This guy is the next person I want to meet! lol #socialstratWade Harman
@copyblogger Not sad in the sense of quality content. Sad for the solos that have a bigger mountain. I’m love both. #SocialStratMarcus Sheridan
@TheSalesLion Ha. They’re my trademark. :-) #socialstratRob Skidmore
I knew @TheSalesLion was good people years ago when I saw that he is using @commentluv #socialstratIleane Smith
@TheSalesLion ok give it to me lol #socialstratWade Harman
You are all awesome. Great chat!!! It was like a social media party! Like it should be! #socialstratAllie
@TheSalesLion If we’re supposed to be acting like media companies (online magazines, etc) why is multi-author sad? #SocialStratBrian Clark
@makemyblogmoney What?? Shut the front door man! You can call me on my cell anytime bud. #SocialStratMarcus Sheridan
@TheSalesLion Can one be a student, while also a problem solver? Can asking someone to teach you help them find the solution? #socialstratKev Kaye
@AllieRambles You rock, thank you for doing this with us! #socialstratWade Harman
RT @Ileane: Tagline from my first blog in 2009: "I’m here to learn, to teach and to connect!" < Still true today. #socialstratJulie
@RobSkidmoreMe Dude, trust me, I’m learning from everyone, especially guys w cool black glasses in their avatar :-) #SocialStratMarcus Sheridan
@makemyblogmoney the pleasure is all mine :-) #socialstratIleane Smith
@TheSalesLion Never thought I would even talk to you! Thx for taking time to do this! #socialstratWade Harman
@Ileane you were one of my first teachers..I still learn from you. Thx for taking time for me. #socialstratWade Harman
@sbhsbh @TheSalesLion I’d agree, personal touch is best with blogs #socialstratLisa
I have learned a lot from @TheSalesLion. He learned stuff from others. Who knows maybe some day I can teach him something. #socialstratRob Skidmore
Tagline from my first blog in 2009: "I’m here to learn, to teach and to connect!" < Still true today. #socialstratIleane Smith
@RobSkidmoreMe Word to yo momma ;-) #SocialStratMarcus Sheridan
I see. Yes RT @TheSalesLion: @AllieRambles The best content marketers are the best teachers.. #socialstratAllie
@RobSkidmoreMe very nice #socialstratWade Harman
RT @RobSkidmoreMe: I think we are all a student and a teacher. We will be in both roles depending on the situation. #socialstratIleane Smith
RT @RobSkidmoreMe: I think we are all a student and a teacher. We will be in both roles depending on the situation. #socialstratWade Harman
@KevKaye There is a time for all of us to be a student, but most businesses, at least w content, need to be problem solvers. #SocialStratMarcus Sheridan
@TheSalesLion Yes, I listen to ur podcast today & was thinking that. My husband biz not good for social but good for SEO. #socialstratAllie
I think we are all a student and a teacher. We will be in both roles depending on the situation. #socialstratRob Skidmore
@TheSalesLion I think that one day its going to be so hard to get noticed on the SE that you will have to resort to SM #socialstratWade Harman
@TheSalesLion Hopefully that will change a little. #socialstratRob Skidmore
@AllieRambles From a content marketing perspective, IMO, yes. The best content marketers are the best teachers.. #SocialStratMarcus Sheridan
RT @makemyblogmoney: @TheSalesLion I think the best way is to be the best student..:) #socialstratKev Kaye
@AllieRambles I need to be the student! Show humility when building relationships & it attracts more people to you #socialstratWade Harman
RT @makemyblogmoney: Bring more traffic by selling yourself and being a friend to another blogger in your niche #socialstratJulie
@RobSkidmoreMe @allieRambles The problem, though, is that some industries still aren’t at all social, thus links must prevail. #SocialStratMarcus Sheridan
Word of mouth is the highest authority. Social is digital word of mouth. #socialstratRob Skidmore
I second that. RT @robskidmoreme: We should make this a regular scheduled chat. :-) #socialstratRuss Henneberry
@TheSalesLion Do you need to be the teacher? #socialstratAllie
@RussHenneberry Great point brother. Content gets them in the funnel, pushes them down the funnel, and keeps them coming back. #SocialStratMarcus Sheridan
@TheSalesLion I think the best way is to be the best student..:) #socialstratWade Harman
@AllieRambles that’s so true. Authorship is really based on connections. The more circles you’re in the more people will see u #socialstratIleane Smith
@AllieRambles It makes sense. Social shares are probably a better indicator of authority then links. #socialstratRob Skidmore
I think the best way to build relationships is to be the best teacher in the world at what you do. That’s my focus. #SocialStratMarcus Sheridan
@thesaleslion – Don’t forget content that retains existing Cx’s. Loyalty and Cx service are often overlooked. #SocialStratRuss Henneberry
Like that idea. RT @RobSkidmoreMe: We should make this a regular scheduled chat. :-) #socialstratAllie
Bring more traffic by selling yourself and being a friend to another blogger in your niche #socialstratWade Harman
I always say that "Connections" are KING! #socialstratIleane Smith
G+ seems to be wanting to integrate social with SEO with things like authorship and the +1. #socialstratAllie
RT @AllieRambles: We need to discuss relationships someday. What kind are best for your niche and how to form them. #socialstratIleane Smith
We should make this a regular scheduled chat. :-) #socialstratRob Skidmore
RT @TheSalesLion: @blondishnet You rock, a pleasure mlady :) #socialstratIleane Smith
@TheSalesLion thanks…lol. #SOCIALSTRATNile Flores
True!! RT @RobSkidmoreMe: I think Google+ is a good indicator that social will matter in search. #socialstratAllie
Me too! It is more fun anyway :) @AllieRambles #socialstratJulie
We need to discuss relationships someday. What kind are best for your niche and how to form them. #socialstratAllie
I think Google+ is a good indicator that social will matter in search. #socialstratRob Skidmore
@TheSalesLion True True… #socialstratSteve Hughes
RT @makemyblogmoney: @AllieRambles I too am doing less SEO. Focusing on what Ileane told me and start building relationships! #socialstratIleane Smith
It was the relationship building, not the link building that made me money last year #socialstratWade Harman
@blondishnet You rock, a pleasure m’lady :) #SocialStratMarcus Sheridan
Alright, I have karate class to get to in under 15 minutes… so I’ve got to get going. Feel free to connect w/ me anytime. #SOCIALSTRATNile Flores
Content that generates leads and sales, that’s my kind :-) The rest makes us maybe feel good, but if it don’t pay the bills… #SocialStratMarcus Sheridan
Truth RT @AllieRambles: I assume more SM will mean better SEO in the long run anyway. #socialstratRob Skidmore
@AllieRambles I too am doing less SEO. Focusing on what @Ileane told me and start building relationships! #socialstratWade Harman
RT @MurrayLunn: Blah, getting dragged away from the chat due to some errands. Nice chatting with you all. Have fun. < bye-bye #socialstratIleane Smith
@TheSalesLion very true. #SOCIALSTRATNile Flores
@MurrayLunn thanks for coming! #socialstratWade Harman
@leebenecke Careful bud, that guy will lead you astray. Weird dude ;p #SocialStratMarcus Sheridan
I am doing less SEO and more SM this year. I assume more SM will mean better SEO in the long run anyway. #socialstratAllie
Blah, getting dragged away from the chat due to some errands. Nice chatting with you all. Have fun. #socialstratMurray Lunn
It’s late in the UK but keeping up with @TheSalesLion’s current run of tweets about #SocialStrat are greatLee Benecke
@RobSkidmoreMe Yes, balance is the key…Don’t be top heavy in any one source #socialstratSteve Hughes
RT @TheSalesLion: @jayBaer loves to say content is fire and social media is the gasoline. #truedat #SocialStratgary magnone
@makemyblogmoney You have to have something to say in order to start a conversation. Content is King, Visitors are Queen! #SOCIALSTRATNile Flores
@blondishnet As it is, we both have time on our side. #SocialStratMarcus Sheridan
@blondishnet That’s fine, but I think if you and I started fresh today, without having been in the game, it would be harder. #SocialStratMarcus Sheridan
RT @makemyblogmoney: RT @TheSalesLion: @jayBaer loves to say content is fire and social media is the gasoline. #truedat #socialstratJulie
Google’s algorithm is a fickle beast. I am an SEO I know this. Depending solely on search traffic is dangerous. #socialstratRob Skidmore
Love this! RT @Ileane: RT @thesaleslion: @jaybaer loves to say content is fire and social media is the gasoline. #truedat #socialstratAllie
@RussHenneberry very good… I will have to leave in a few minutes as I have to go to karate class. #SOCIALSTRATNile Flores
@MurrayLunn: Promotion aside, I think the best use of SM for CM has to be networking as it gets your foot door w/ great people #socialstratAllie
RT @TheSalesLion: @jayBaer loves to say content is fire and social media is the gasoline. #truedat #socialstratWade Harman
RT @thesaleslion: @jaybaer loves to say content is fire and social media is the gasoline. #truedat #SocialStratIleane Smith
@TheSalesLion @sbhsbh I see more than moderate growth for my blog. Not doing another hiatus experiment…lol #SOCIALSTRATNile Flores
@MurrayLunn Yep, Take Marcus for instance…I like bloggers like him, @Ileane, and @AllieRambles that will actually talk to u #socialstratWade Harman
And from there, it’s a matter of teaming up, cross promoting, bouncing ideas, and so forth – relationships, more or less #socialstratMurray Lunn
@jayBaer loves to say content is fire and social media is the gasoline. #truedat #SocialStratMarcus Sheridan
@blondishnet — How are things Nile? Good to see you on this chat. #SocialStratRuss Henneberry
Promotion aside, I think the best use of SM for CM has to be networking as it gets your foot in the door with great people #socialstratMurray Lunn
@makemyblogmoney @TheSalesLion – you will still see me guest post sometimes, but I’ll also be around interacting :) #SOCIALSTRATNile Flores
@sbhsbh @blondishnet Heck, I plan to keep going solo, but I know that means more moderate growth. #SocialStratMarcus Sheridan
RT @RobSkidmoreMe: @makemyblogmoney SCORE! Guest post opportunity. :-) #socialstratWade Harman
Another Q: How Does #SocialMedia Play Into Content Marketing, and What Can We Do To Drive Traffic With it Through Social Media? #socialstratWade Harman
@RussHenneberry Yep, if someone wants to create a huge brand in a saturated industry, then is sure as heck helps. #SocialStratMarcus Sheridan
RT @blondishnet: @TheSalesLion I am going to keep on blogging solo. #socialstratSteve Hughes
RT @TheSalesLion: Actually, I cant even rule my own household :-) < Too many girls around for that one :) #socialstratIleane Smith
@makemyblogmoney SCORE! Guest post opportunity. :-) #socialstratRob Skidmore
@RobSkidmoreme Lol! You can post on my blog! #socialstratWade Harman
@blondishnet You can and should, but you’ve been in the game a good while. Very different. #SocialStratMarcus Sheridan
@TheSalesLion Everybody wants to rule the world Marcus. #socialstratRob Skidmore
@TheSalesLion Seems to me that consolidation is necessary. The blogosphere is so fragmented. Bloggers are all lone wolves. #SocialStratRuss Henneberry
@Blondishnet me too…It has taken me a year to get this far, its a slow process, but I’m enjoying it. #socialstratWade Harman
Anyone want to make an multi-author blog. :-) #socialstratRob Skidmore
@TheSalesLion Ok, well that’s a different conversation…I took death as extinct, not as making it to the top… #socialstratSteve Hughes
Actually, I can’t even rule my own household :-) #SocialStratMarcus Sheridan
@TheSalesLion I am going to keep on blogging solo. #SOCIALSTRATNile Flores
@MurrayLunn Nothing wrong with that, all comes back to goals. I happily admit I want to rule the world! LOL ;-) #SocialStratMarcus Sheridan
.@TheSalesLion Marcus you type too fast. You get all my thoughts out before I do. :-) #socialstratRob Skidmore
Blogging is a great skill, no doubt, but I don’t think it should be the end-all, be-all – gotta have a real skill #socialstratMurray Lunn
@TheSalesLion same theory with blogs…people like the personal touch that Mashable, etc don’t provide #socialstratSteve Hughes
@thesaleslion I agree. It feels like a window is closing. #SocialStratRuss Henneberry
Due to the multi-approach, that’s why I’m shifting away from just blogging and putting more effort into freelancing #socialstratMurray Lunn
I think solo/single bloggers will always be there, rocking thought, but more and more great talent will be lost.. #SocialStratMarcus Sheridan
Therefore, creating relationships and building integrity with other people is essential #socialstratWade Harman
@TheSalesLion I’m all for having more content on my site, but the reality is this is going to take awhile. #socialstratWade Harman
@sbhsbh I’m not saying you can’t be profitable and successful, I’m just saying it’s EXTREMELY hard to reach the very top solo #SocialStratMarcus Sheridan
The only other way a single author could reach the top is by being radically different. not much space left though. #socialstratRob Skidmore
Great point! RT @sbhsbh: @TheSalesLion For every McDonald’s there’s 5 local places making it… #socialstratLisa
@TheSalesLion For every McDonald’s there’s 5 local places making it… #socialstratSteve Hughes
@TheSalesLion I see what you mean, but can a single author blogger make it by consistently posting thru SM? #socialstratWade Harman
@sbhsbh true enough, I’ve had to eat the never word before, lol imho I dont think being a search giant is FB’s goal #socialstratNancy E Bain
Most blogs, to reach the top top, are now going multi-author. The pattern is there for us all to see, albeit a sad reality. #SocialStratMarcus Sheridan
You really should read Marcus’ post about Death of Single Author Blogs http://bit.ly/Zt2JyI #socialstratWade Harman
@TheSalesLion I agree #socialstratLisa
I just think the time is coming where *new* bloggers will have a VERY difficult time going big due to competition saturation. #SocialStratMarcus Sheridan
.@TheSalesLion Agreed. #socialstratRob Skidmore
@Ileane now that’s a great stagetgy #socialstrat straight forward too :)Lisa
FB makes it hard to create a viable marketing model with their constant changes. Not that it can’t happen still, but difficult. #SocialStratMarcus Sheridan
@TheSalesLion You Wrote “The Death of Solo Author Blogs” How Can Bloggers Create Traffic Without “Killing” Their Blog Thru SM? #socialstratWade Harman
@Ileane It made well for driving fans and I got 17 leads to finish proposals for WordPress web design on that promotion. #SOCIALSTRATNile Flores
I have done the $5 promoted post 1 time a week for a month and gained 300 subscribers. That’s not too bad. #socialstratWade Harman
I think everyone is right. Promoted posts are great for a one time action. But they aren’t a means of sustained actions. #socialstratRob Skidmore
RT @RobSkidmoreMe: Here is a great example of title baiting that I enjoyed. It does come close … :-) http://rskd.me/WzR66Y #socialstratIleane Smith
@TheSalesLion I understand what you mean. You just can’t do this all the time & expect same results #socialstratWade Harman
@Ileane for me, yes..but its just not consistent #socialstratWade Harman
To clarify: the promo post certainly made money but nothing compared to an email drop – gained a few new fans – nothing big tho #socialstratMurray Lunn
@makemyblogmoney I had great success. My goal was to have people share a post I wrote. I got well over a hundred shares. #socialstratRob Skidmore
@TheSalesLion @blondishnet Title has to do with content of the post…no question #socialstratSteve Hughes
@makemyblogmoney Not that it can’t work, it just seems like a short term solution to a long term problem. #SocialStratMarcus Sheridan
Promoted posts are great for getting more fans, but in the end does that drive conversions? #socialstratIleane Smith
Here is a great example of title baiting that I enjoyed. It does come close to the line though. :-) http://rskd.me/WzR66Y #socialstratRob Skidmore
RT @RobSkidmoreMe: I ran a promoted post on my personal account and it worked really well. I got a lot of good feedback. #socialstratWade Harman
@makemyblogmoney depends… some title baiting is so far off the beat that it belongs in a site like Perez Hilton’s #SOCIALSTRATNile Flores
@RobSkidmoreMe You’re the first person to agree that this actually works! #socialstratWade Harman
@makemyblogmoney I can see it that way. The initial hit seems to be directed at engaged members. As it goes, msg gets lost. #socialstratMurray Lunn
Interesting chat you guys are having, hope everyone is doing well #SocialStratKarla Campos
@TheSalesLion Most people I’m talking to say that…I don’t know why its working for me!? #socialstratWade Harman
@TheSalesLion Very blahhhh…. #socialstratSteve Hughes
@blondishnet Well said Nile, no one likes the bait and switch, there is a fine line to walk w catchy titles. #SocialStratMarcus Sheridan
@MurrayLunn My research proved that the $5 promotion was just as good as the $10 #socialstratWade Harman
I ran a promoted post on my personal account and it worked really well. I got a lot of good feedback. #socialstratRob Skidmore
@makemyblogmoney Yes, I recently did for an event I promoted on Facebook last week. I only ran is for 24 hours. Got 400+ fans #SOCIALSTRATNile Flores
@Blondishnet I see what you’re saying, but isnt title baiting the same thing? lol! As long as you can title bait good stuff! #socialstratWade Harman
I’ve played with FB post promotion, but to be honest, it just seems so blahhhhh. Hard to explain. #SocialStratMarcus Sheridan
@TheSalesLion I’ve been being more "real" on my page, people are eating it up.. lol #socialstratNancy E Bain
@makemyblogmoney Ran a test over the holiday’s for a client. Certainly did great in terms of impressions but lacked in sales #socialstratMurray Lunn
I use Facebook groups and Google Communities to help people resolve problems #socialstratIleane Smith
@makemyblogmoney I don’t mind catchy titles as long as it is not falsely title baiting #SOCIALSTRATNile Flores
Anyone had any luck with Facebook Post Promotion? I did some research on this here http://bit.ly/VnmC9L #socialstratWade Harman
There is so much content these days that the only way to stand out is to NOT live in the world of gray all the time, IMO. #SocialStratMarcus Sheridan
I read recently somewhere that Google has no plans to put advertising on google+ http://rskd.me/Xla9Vi #socialstratRob Skidmore
@TheSalesLion Instead of thinking outside of the box, get rid of the box as Deepak Chopra says. #SOCIALSTRATNile Flores
As for building traffic thru social media, I’m just trying to be out of the box, opinionated, and real w my content. #SocialStratMarcus Sheridan
@Blondishnet Catchy titles are my main traffic getter on these social sites! #socialstratWade Harman
RT @blondishnet: I hold events through Facebook (blogging & WordPress), an upcoming Twitter chat, speak at WordCamps #socialstratSteve Hughes
#socialstrat people resonate better with my personal FB profile than page, I’m sharing more from my page to my profileNancy E Bain
RT @makemyblogmoney: What Are You Doing To Bring Traffic Through Social Media? #SOCIALSTRATNile Flores
@nancyebain Really? I disagree…Look what FB is doing, we need to get a piece of pie is probably how meetings went #socialstratSteve Hughes
MT @blondishnet: I hold events through Facebook (blogging & WordPress), an upcoming Twitter chat, speak at WordCamps & conf. #socialstratIleane Smith
#socialstrat I know that sounds too simple but that should be what the purpose of any good SM campaign is imhoNancy E Bain
FB traffic: in "about" sec. – add a link on your profile to your Page and put a link to Blog on your Page! http://bit.ly/LXGbku #socialstratIleane Smith
I hold events through Facebook (blogging & WordPress), an upcoming Twitter chat, speak at WordCamps & conferences….etc. #SOCIALSTRATNile Flores
And like @NancyBain says it’s all about the data and the search. #socialstratRob Skidmore
#socialstrat strategy – use SM to point people back to my website where I close the deal :)Nancy E Bain
@sbhsbh Of course why put resources in to dead products. But Google+ is working. So far at least. #socialstratRob Skidmore
#socialstrat @TheSalesLion Google is first and foremost a search company I think G+ was not intended to rival FB at allNancy E Bain
@nancyebain G+ collecting an incredible amount of data daily… #socialstratSteve Hughes
Word… RT @sbhsbh: @RobSkidmoreMe haha, theyre not in it for charity…theyve shown to drop services if theyre not working… #SocialStratPeter Trapasso
@nancyebain Yep, you’re very likely right. They’ve suckered us in quite nicely ;-) #SocialStratMarcus Sheridan
@RobSkidmoreMe haha, they’re not in it for charity…they’ve shown to drop services if they’re not working… #socialstratSteve Hughes
Ok, let’s wrangle this conversation back to strategies…What Are You Doing To Bring Traffic Through Social Media? #socialstratWade Harman
The social part is the one game we are trying to always figure out. #SOCIALSTRATNile Flores
#socialstrat G+ is Google’s way of learning even more about you so they can serve up better search results.Nancy E Bain
.@makemyblogmoney No but it’s investors want it. Google already has a money in the bank and more coming in. #socialstratRob Skidmore
Blogging has always veered toward unique content & social interaction. #SOCIALSTRATNile Flores
@blondishnet Disagreement is a great thing. We don’t do it nearly enough online. :-) #SocialStratMarcus Sheridan
#socialstrat imho G+ is THE necessary evil I think you’ll eventually need an account to use all their productsNancy E Bain
@RobSkidmoreMe True, but Facebook doesn’t need the money does it? #socialstratWade Harman
@TheSalesLion I’d have to disagree with that statement on some levels. #SOCIALSTRATNile Flores
@nancyebain Agree and disagree. I think both camps are studying each other do death, trying to get a competitive advantage. #SocialStratMarcus Sheridan
@SbhSbh Social Media is growing and search engines like Google are driving traffic away with Penguin & Panda #socialstratWade Harman
The thing that makes Google+ different is that they don’t need to make money from it. Unlike Facebook and Twitter. #socialstratRob Skidmore
RT @TheSalesLion: We live in an age of wild, daily experiments. If anyone acts like they have this figured out, theyre full of #SocialStratPeter Trapasso
MT @nancyebain: The idea is not to compare G+ to FB, the goal (for Google) is larger than a social network imho < Good point #socialstratIleane Smith
@TheSalesLion That’s true, the space is still in it’s infancy..Like Martha Stewart said this wk Social Media is here to stay :) #socialstratSteve Hughes
We live in an age of wild, daily experiments. If anyone acts like they have this figured out, they’re full of sham-wow :) #SocialStratMarcus Sheridan
I am going to have to read that as by title alone, might need to write a response blog considering I’ve been blogging 12+ years #SOCIALSTRATNile Flores
@makemyblogmoney @TheSalesLion The idea is not to compare G+ to FB, the goal (for Google) is larger than a social network imho #socialstratNancy E Bain
@RobSkidmoreMe Word big dog…word. ;-) #SocialStratMarcus Sheridan
@sbhsbh Exactly, but let’s be real–They’re all "winging it." FB, Twitter, G+,Pinterest– that’s why they change daily. #SocialStratMarcus Sheridan
@TheSalesLion You Wrote “The Death of Solo Author Blogs” How Can Bloggers Create Traffic Without “Killing” Their Blog Thru SM? #socialstratWade Harman
@TheSalesLion "the truth, is the truth, is the truth." lol #SOCIALSTRATNile Flores

@TheSalesLion:Frankly, I dont even know if Google knows where theyre going G+. Flying by the seat of their pants like#Facebook #socialstratWade Harman
@makemyblogmoney They are actually going where Yahoo! screwed up over 10 years ago. #SOCIALSTRATNile Flores
@blondishnet Isn’t it funny how all the money in the world doesn’t equate to immediate success with online platforms? :-) #SocialStratMarcus Sheridan
Hi @ArmywifeJulie thank you for joining us. #socialstratIleane Smith
@TheSalesLion An argument can be made that G+ is winging it :) #socialstratSteve Hughes
@TheSalesLion Lol! I’m retweeting that! #socialstratWade Harman
Yes they have! RT @AllieRambles: G+ has made it very easy to create communities. Especially with Hangouts too. #socialstratJulie
@Ileane All of the above, any of those are touches (interactions) #socialstratSteve Hughes
@Blondishnet I agree with you. They have the market cornered on everything else. #socialstratWade Harman
RT @ArmywifeJulie: Yes it has! RT @AllieRambles: G+ has made it very easy to create communities. Especially with Hangouts too #socialstratIleane Smith
They were trying with Google Buzz and Google Wave… amongst several projects they had bought out and have integrated #SOCIALSTRATNile Flores
Frankly, I don’t even know if Google knows where they’re going w G+. Flying by the seat of their pants like #Facebook #SocialStratMarcus Sheridan
RT @makemyblogmoney: "I think interaction is actually bringing value…"<—value I think is key. #socialstratAllie
G+ Communities is just another opportunity that we have to build relationships with other people and that is what’s important! #socialstratWade Harman
@TheSalesLion Hey Marcus, :-) Checked my twitter feed just in time to catch this. #socialstratRob Skidmore
Social Search has been something Google has been veering toward for the past couple years. #oldschoolblogger #SOCIALSTRATNile Flores
RT @thesaleslion: Is "interaction" someone commenting? Is it liking? Is it reading? What the heck is it? IMO, all of the above. #SocialStratIleane Smith
RT @thesaleslion: Is "interaction" someone commenting? Is it liking? Is it reading? What the heck is it? IMO, all of the above. #SocialStratIleane Smith
@Ileane of course. :-) #socialstratRob Skidmore
I think interaction is actually bringing value to an update that is already there and building on it from that #socialstratWade Harman
@RobSkidmoreMe What’s up buddy?!! :-) #SocialStratMarcus Sheridan
RT @Ileane: A1: Google made a great move by introducing Communities and I think the timing is perfect! #socialstratJulie
#SocialStrat also the communities are awesome. I joined about 10 and talked to some really cool people. #socialstratRob Skidmore
G+ has made it very easy to create communities. Especially with Hangouts too. #socialstratAllie
I view someone reading an entire article and *not* tweeting it more important than someone skimming and then tweeting. #SocialStratMarcus Sheridan
@makemyblogmoney I think so! I think also to compete with Facebook. #socialstratJulie
@MamaMakesMoney nice to see you #socialstratLisa
Hi @RobSkidmoreMe thanks for joining us #socialstratIleane Smith
.@TheSalesLion #SocialStrat I just read an article on Author Rank that said that exact thing today. Interaction is key. #socialstratRob Skidmore
@TheSalesLion I agree #socialstratWade Harman
A1: Check out the podcast: My Tools, Tips and Strategies for Google+ Success http://bit.ly/11b52vM #socialstratIleane Smith
@makemyblogmoney They were telling us that is there answer to FB Fan Pages #socialstratSteve Hughes
I 2nd that RT @RobSkidmoreMe: #SocialStrat I actually just dove into Google+ today. It makes interaction ieasy. So I vote yes. #socialstratLisa
Is "interaction" someone commenting? Is it liking? Is it reading? What the heck is it? IMO, all of the above. #SocialStratMarcus Sheridan
@Lisapatb Hi! #socialstratJulie
I think Google just wants to corner the market even more, especially with author rank now out. Interaction is so relative.. #SocialStratMarcus Sheridan
@makemyblogmoney Q1 Answer: Google has been telling us social interaction has been important WAY BEFORE G+ Communities #SOCIALSTRATNile Flores
A2: great Q! I sure hope so because SEO is so confusing! #socialstratAllie
A1: Google made a great move by introducing Communities and I think the timing is perfect! #socialstratIleane Smith
#SocialStrat I actually just dove into Google+ today. It makes interaction incredibly easy. So I vote yes. #socialstratRob Skidmore

But sometimes you can’t always make it to those events! And even if you could, most of them charge an arm and a leg for admission, and it makes it tough on a newbie starting out because you may not have that much money to spend on an hour seminar!

Social Media Marketing Strategies for 2013How You Can Get In On A FREE Event!

When I was speaking in Ohio at one of the many blogging conventions this country has, I realized the price of admission to go to one of these things. To be honest, it’s kind of outrageous and sometimes hilarious at the price they charge just to get into one of these things.

While there, I really got to thinking about events that I could create that would be free to bloggers who were just getting started. The kind of event that you could attend in your own living room or office.

Naturally that event would have to be online, and that’s just the event I created!

Why People Go

You want to be included in events like this because usually there are some great professional ideas that come out of them. The kind of ideas that can really get your blog off the ground and start getting a name for yourself. That’s why people pay outrageous prices of admission…to be included in these ideas!

Now You Can Go To This Twitter Event!

The event that I have created is called Social Media Marketing Strategies for 2013 and it’s going to include a lot of good things that you can use to bring your blog to the next level!

This event will be on Twitter and you can come! Look for the hashtag #BlogTips to see the discussion.

Who What When Where

The What When & Where

The event will be held on Twitter on January the 9th at 6pm EST and will last until 7pm. If it goes over, that’s fine too! I don’t want to hold these great bloggers to a time limit! One of the speakers, Marcus Sheridan recently did a post where he went over his allotted time while speaking at one of the many conferences he does, and I just don’t want to limit these people at all!

It will be focused on social media marketing strategies and how you can take your social media to the next level and get some visibility and traffic to your site! There are really so many points that you have to focus on in your social media strategy and the professionals can show you some great pointers!

The Who

No, it’s not the band, but almost as good! I really hit the ball out of the park with the guest Tweeters in this chat this time!

First up is one of the greatest content marketers in the business, Marcus Sheridan. He can show you how to distribute content through social media with a more positive effect for traffic. Plus a whole lot of other good stuff that even I don’t know about! You can follow Marcus for the event here.

Next, is a blogger we all know and love. Yep, you guessed it! Ms. Ileane! I love Ms Ileane because right from the very start of our relationship she has always been super helpful with just about everything! From YouTube to Scoop.it, Ms Ileane can be found on just about every social media platform available!

One thing that always stuck in my mind about Ms. Ileane was in an interview I did about her on my blog called An Intimate Interview with Ms Ileane where she told me that the key to successful social media strategy was building relationships and communities. I’m really excited to see what she will be giving us in this event, because you know it’s going to be good! Follow Ms. Ileane on Twitter!

Next up is Alison Irish, or Allie Rambles from Ramblings of A WAHM. Allie is a true “mom blogger” and she even gets up at 5:23am! Now that’s dedication! Her theories on social media marketing are astounding to get more visibility with your updates and bring more value to the reader. Follow Allie on Twitter!

Most of you know me, I’m an ex-coal miner that turned to blogging after a serious mining accident ended my career. I simply love social media! I will show you how to bring the reader to your site from these social media platforms by giving tips on how to write catchy content that attracts the readers! Follow me for this event on Twitter!

Be There or Be Square!

I really am looking forward to this event on Twitter. I have always wanted to bring value to the reader without them having to pay an arm and a leg for it! Please check out the event in more detail!

RSVP

You can RSVP for this event in two places: Google Plus and Facebook.

Also, add me on Google Plus to get in on some future events that I will be doing called “Google Plus ‘Hangout with Wade'” where I will hangout with one or two bloggers every week and talk about different things that can improve your blog! Who knows? I may ask you to hang out with me! (My wife is making fun of me right now…lol)

Anyway, I’m not a popular blogger, and don’t profess to be, but I want to help people learn how to get visibility and make money with their blog. I know this Twitter event is going to really help you in your social media strategies, and I hope to see you there!

    Thanks for your event – Ferb

    • Wade Harman

      Glad to hear you can come! We all are looking forward to it. I can’t wait to see Marcus’ blog post about it! I wonder what he’s going to say!

    • Wade Harman

      You should hook your Facebook and Twitter accounts together and when you post to Facebook you will post to Twitter and vice versa. Check out my “Recently Posted” for a killer tool that can implement the tool and automate it too, so you don’t have to stay on these sites all the time posting!

    Hey Wade,

    Really great idea to have a twitter event. I’m not going to miss it after all I’m getting a great opportunity to ask and learn from Social Media experts.

  7. Wade, I’m in, and I will be there! That’s the beauty of Twitter in particular, you can simply follow a hashtag and boom, it’s like you’re pretty much at the event since the updates come in real-time and they come thick and fast! Have a great new year and I’ll see you on the 9th!
