Having a big heart



You may wonder why I’ve included this video in my blog today, I honestly believe that if we have heart and understanding for this message, our businesses, lives and social media marketing campaigns will flourish so much more. If you want to know the ROI in social media, it will be much more than figures. It will be the personality of your brand, and how genuine you are as a business. That means the attitude you have towards your consumers matters. People smell fake, documents tweets a mile off, and it may seem like a time-consuming activity, but it’s one you can’t afford to miss out on.

It’s not good enough to have a computer spit your tweets out on a clock either. At least not for the majority of us. Like I’ve said before, we need to be ready for those opportune moments.

Of course the other reason I am sharing this video with you is I wanted to share this with you, in the hope it touches you as it has me. It’s too easy to switch on the news to remind us of the world that we live in, WE LIVE IN.

The reason we are alive, which is for SO  MUCH  MORE than making money. Having the dream to be successful as a singer, business person, whatever; is not a bad dream to have. Might I suggest though that we consider the impact of our dreams, and that we will get more out of them when they include others, rather than exclude.

Disclaimer: I’m not suggesting we must fix the world in this blog, or that we do anything that doesn’t have heart in it. I’m just suggesting that when we remind ourselves of the bigger picture, and what is of true value in this ONE LIFE we are given. The rest I believe will take care of itself, as we are faithful with what’s in our hand.

Golden nugget: Google+ is an extremely valuable platform to be on for any business. If you are not on it yet, get on it now. Stop waiting for people to join. If you want to know more about how many tweets you should be posting, or find out more on how social media marketing can help your business then leave a comment below, and I’ll be sure to reply.

Here’s an idea: There are lots of amazing campaigns, and groups of people doing something to really make a difference. From Tom’s shoes, to A21, to a sisterhood of girls gathering together to play their part. As a business you can lend your hand of resources, or support in lots of ways, all shapes and sizes. Not because you will get something out of it, although you will undoubtedly, but because your human, and we all live in this big planet called earth that makes us ALL responsible for something. What’s your part?
