How Did You Get Involved in Social Media

Yesterday I was asked how I became involved with social media. Here’s my reply…

I am a novice in this world. I am a grandmother of 5 and I don’t want to be left in the dust.

So I am learning and I’m making a lot of mistakes BUT I’m also making some forward progress. Like I’m still learning when to hit the return key and when to let a paragraph just run on so as to not create two separate posts.

Two years ago I wrote a book which became a #1 best seller not because it was brilliantly written, but because I understand traditional marketing. I found traditional marketing would only take book sales so far. I needed to learn about Social Media.

Now I find if I want to keep growing and offering my very best to my clients, I needed to jump right into the “new way of marketing”. It’s fabulous. Challenging; you bet! But it’s great how this works!

I write a blog: it was just a few short weeks ago that I learned from savvy Debra Jason to use the marciaok. (dot) not the marciaok@ (at sign) when directing folks to my blog. Otherwise, they get sent to an email screen.

See it’s a big learning curve for me, but I’m Up For The Challenge!! See you at the top!!

How did you get involved??
