Greetings all! Ready to rock 'n roll with ?
Tonight: Matthew Holden of
Getting the ball rolling on questions.. Up next.. conversation / discussion starter (the questions)
Q1 How much of your social media marketing involves images and media? (Or how much would you like?)
A1) Not nearly enough! Major objective TY for me!
Announcement 3 of 3: This series... CEOs and prizes lined up for you, so tune in (same time/same place).
RT : Q1 How much of your social media marketing involves images and media? (Or how much would you like?)
A1: I try to include media/image when required to help support my content. Sometimes, visuals help build point.
Good for you, Wayne! Have you ever found yourself adding an unrelated visual to get attention? (it works)
RT : A1: I try to include media/image when required to help support my content.
I have never really considered it.
Q2 How do you share your media elements like images, video, slideshares, now?
I hadn't either. a nice eye-catching (i.e. colorful) picture of a rainbow, flower.. something to get attention..
A2) Blogposts, slideshare, Twitter
Yes, that is correct. I always include an image in some of my tweets to support a comment.
Stats have shown that tweets with images (native images) get 2X the amount of engagement as those without images.
Q3 What challenges have you faced in your social media sharing of multi-media?
A1 Every piece of content I create contains at least one image to promote it to social media
RT : A1 Every piece of content I create contains at least one image to promote it to social media
Stumbleupon and reddit are a few other popular platforms for sharing
A3) Time to prepare good content
Yes, the stats reflect that images are definitely the way to go! I wonder if it is ever more than 2x
I don't usually promote my tweets. I just share moments that interest me. No promotional for me.
RT : Stumbleupon and reddit are a few other popular platforms for sharing
A2 I'm switching from mostly sharing manually to Twitter card pulls and pushing through
Sabrina - Have you found effective ways to use Reddit? I always wonder about group voting (or down voting)
RT : A2 I'm switching from mostly sharing manually to Twitter card pulls and pushing through
some challenges I've faced have been sharing original content /media that hasn't already saturated the web
A3 Slow internet upload speed makes uploading videos painful; can push them natively
Good point, Sabrina! Original content helps, but the more original, the more time it takes
RT : some challenges I've faced have been sharing original content /media that hasn't already saturated the web
RT : A3 Slow internet upload speed makes uploading videos painful; can push them natively
if done effectively it can def gain some traction but I wouldn't make it the ONLY platform you rely on
Gail - wouldn't there still be the upload time, for ? Or, u mean pulling through the net?
Yeah, multi-pronged approach is best Good point.
Really? Automated downvoting?
Q4 What improvements would you like to see in your media sharing?
Yes, but only ONCE and then you can push them natively to Facebook and YouTube
A4) More original content of various types
Yes - refresh the page and you'll see that votes come and go and come back again
A1: I think that most, if not all SM marketing should contain images and media. People are more likely to look.
That is true. People do like images and media. I notice I get a lot more engagement for media and images in tweets.
RT : A1: I think that most, if not all SM marketing should contain images and media. People are more likely to look.
Thank you, glad to be here!

We are, too. Welcome, Stephanie! RT : Thank you, glad to be here!
I do too! I notice myself looking at media more as well. Our attention spans aren't what they used to be.
Q6 What will you be adding to your strategy this week, after (Hint: try MavSocial :) )?
You mean creating the images?
A2: I usually just use the social media platform directly!
Q7 Please feel free to share what you are up to and attach the hashtag, too :)
A3: I usually don't face challenges besides what media is the best media? What will make people click on it?
A4: More engagement! I am working on learning what people like and what people just scroll past.
A1 I like to switch it up. I love images and try to break up text with them. I don't like too many images though.
I'm more likely to be doing it for others than hiring someone to do it for me - at least right now
A1: I have been trying to add more images though because I know it gets more attention.
Well SM is here to stay and people's attention spans are less so I think it's here to stay.
A2: I share images in blogposts, Twitter and Pinterest. Sometimes Instagram as well.
A3: Remembering to create images to share when sharing a blog post.
Yes, I believe that most owners will be hiring serious social media savvy bloggers
Agreed on the fact that it's here to stay.
A4: I would like to be more consistent when it comes to adding image sharing.
A5: I would like to know how others are using It is always inspiring to hear what others are doing.
This goes back to your thought that bloggers should be "apprenticed". But who should do this?
A6: I will definitely check out to see what it is all about.
MavSocial is way easier to use
This may have been asked and answered. Are there stats on how relevant the image needs to be for business purposes? .
Awesome. I will try it out this week.
Bloggers need to reach out to and offer to manage for them after they create a process
A7: Closing out so going back to blogging about beauty, love, relationships and blogging
I guess right now my mind is on new opportunities for those looking for alternative careers, etc.
There are tons of opps for those who go out and talk to businesses and ask for the business
Using Mavsocial for images on Facebook & Twitter create a lot of my own so works well for me!
Hi Tamara. Only a couple of months. Found out about it on google+ & liked the new Sound Card feature for
...you can post a sound file directly on to Twitter and people can listen to it there. Thought that was pretty cool
Hi Deborah like and will keep on using it for now.
Missed the ? Stay tuned for Tweets letting your know the archive/summary is ready.
For inspiration I will go to google or pinterest and search for keywords. The images that pop up give me an idea.
