Moving Businesses Into the Age of Social Media

In 2012 social media marketing has become the new age of marketing to the masses. Almost everyone is on Facebook or Twitter and many of these same people will search out a company they have had an interaction with at some point.

Whether they are a pleased customer or dissatisfied on some level -- nine times out of ten they are taking to the internet to air their opinion. 

This is where One Mom Digital Media comes in!

Founder Danielle Elwood started out as a mom blogger and increasingly became interested and educated on social media through her experience in social media having an impact on the blogging community. She then took those experiences and started working with companies based in the parenting community working with companies such as Pampers Kandoo, and Go Mama Go Designs. 

After that she decided to branch out into her local area working one-on-one with business she frequents in the Fairfield County and Naugatuck Valley areas. 

Today with two years and three children under her belt she has started One Mom Digital Media and is continuing to expand her services regularly. 

Launching New Services!

For a long time I went back and forth debating on launching a new line of services through One Mom Digital Media. Since February of this year, I have been blessed with an amazing work load from thee best clients in Connecticut.

After the request of several clients and friends, I am launching a whole new blogger outreach program where I will work to connect brands locally, and across the country with bloggers. These opportunities will include brand ambassador programs, product reviews and giveaways, as well as opportunities for bloggers to make money with sponsored posts.

These are all great opportunities for brands and bloggers to connect and work together to promote each other across the board. As you should know by now, one of the best marketing techniques for any brand today is reaching out into the blogging community. In fact, most largely successful companies today have these type of blogger connections. (You can read more about why you should be working with bloggers here)

This service will also extend to bloggers. Bloggers can sign up to be included in a blogger database which will be kept as record. If you are a blogger that would like to be included in this database, please sign up.

I look forward to working with many new brands, and bloggers in the upcoming months!

Businesses: Set Up Your Google Alerts!

Google alerts -- many of you have probably never even heard of them, but if they are involved with Google it is probably a must have right?

For a business Google Alerts are a vital resource all around.

Why?

Because they alert you when your alert terms are used on the internet. Sounds pretty simple but there is really more to it!

The Key to Connection: Being Human

Ever stop and wonder to yourself -- why do some companies have 100 followers, and others have thousands?

The answer can sometimes be extremely simple: Human interaction!

Unfortunately, this is where many companies looking to bridge the gap between marketing and social media marketing fail.

The key word in social media marketing is social.
You actually have to interact, converse, and be social to make an impact.

New Social Media Tools for Your Business


What does it all mean?

There is Instagram, Pinterest, Google +, and all kinds of new and up coming social media outlets that businesses should be starting to cash in on.

But lets all face it -- these sites can be confusing. Whenever I want to put myself in the position of a client who may not know much about the social media field, I just sit down and talk to my husband about it.

What the Heck is a QR Code?

If you are paying close attention -- you will see these funny looking black and white barcode looking pictures all over the place these days.

In fact just two nights ago while sitting in my local diner, I saw one on the back of our Heinz Ketchup container on the table. It made me smile at the same time because as a techie myself I knew what it meant, and what to do with it.

If you are carrying a smart phone in your pocket too... you just may know what to do with it as well!

But what are they and why are they important to your business?
