                There are so many social media platforms out there today and everyone has a different opinion about which platform is best for your business. As a marketing consultant, you probably dabble in all of the big social media sites for your clients but, which ones do you use for yourself? Pinterest might be one of them. This colorful social media platform is a great way to drive traffic back to your website and get even more exposure for your business. The question is…how do you use it as a marketing consultant? Most people will tell you that Pinterest is mainly for B2C’s (Business to Consumers) but, there are plenty of ways that B2B’s (Business to Businesses) and specifically marketing consultants can use Pinterest to grow their reach and drive traffic back to their site. Below you will find 4 examples of how Constant Contact’s Solution Providers (our version of Marketing Consultants around the country) use Pinterest to their advantage. 1). Shelley Roth - Drive back to your content; 2). Romona Foster - Showcase your expertise; 3). Grapevine Marketing - Let your personality shine through; and 4). Buzz2Bucks - Show off your current clients

                    BILAL: How have you helped or experienced social media enriching those in business?

                    ROMONA: The biggest way I can help people is to share my own stories with them. For example with the LinkedIn classes, people inquire about how they can generate business. They say, “I am on LinkedIn but nothing happens.” or ”I have been trying to get business but can’t get anything.” Usually the problem is that they are on there, but they are not engaging with anyone. I then share my own success stories of how business is being generated. I have gotten clients from it and now participate on an organization’s board because of LinkedIn. I have gotten clients from Twitter. People show up for class whom I have only known through Facebook or Twitter. I show clients how to create a marketing strategy online for themselves based on their type of business and help them decide which social media platforms work best for them. I can tell them about different strategies, but I have to share the ones that have worked for me. I tell them that continual engagement with their connections and group members is crucial. You can’t post once and disappear, or generate interest one week and don’t come back for several weeks. Engagement is the key in relation to their business strategy.

                       Interview with
                      The Story Exchange - Empowering Women to Start Their Own Business

                      ROMONA FOSTER OF ADMIN TECH CONSULTING TELLS HER STORY

                      I started freelancing out of necessity. I was taking some event management classes in 2007. The program I was participating in required all students to complete a full-time internship and 160 practicum hours. In order to do this, I had to leave my full-time job as a meeting manager. I no longer had an income, so I started working on short-term projects for consultants and home-based businesses. In 2008, when I completed my internship and practicum hours, I began looking for work. The economy had taken a turn, so I was having a hard time finding a job. In the past, I never had a problem finding employment. Months of looking turned into years, so it really became pretty scary. I never really changed my mindset from looking for a job until 2012 when my passion took over ...

                       Mentioned on the Social Media Week 2013 Blog

                        Is your brand on Pinterest, Twitter, Tumblr, Foursquare, Flickr, Google+, LinkedIn, YouTube, Instagram, Facebook and … any others that have cropped up since you started reading that list? Are you building connections with friends, fans, followers and pinners? Creating conversations in groups, chats, pages and circles? Trying to keep up with all of the platforms in the social sphere can be intimidating and overwhelming. Fortunately for your brand (and your sanity), you don’t have to do it all. You just have to do it right. We’ve grown past the somewhat compulsive “New platform? We must create an account! We must be everywhere!” phase. The focus is now on effectively leveraging the platforms that are the best fit for your brand and your audience. This can mean anything from growing and revamping existing accounts to adopting or experimenting with new platforms that fit your brand’s content strategy and reach your target audiences. SMWWDC tackles this trend with both platform and engagement-specific events, to help you move past the need to be everywhere, and hone in on choosing the best platforms for your brand and making the most of them with a strong social media strategy. Events geared towards leveraging specific platforms, such as “Social storytelling Q+A with Tumblr” and [Romona Foster's] “Discover the Power of Twitter Tweet-A-Thon-Style” can help your brand tell its story powerfully and effectively using specific platforms.

                           Romona Foster Mentioned in Another Great Constant Contact Blog Post by Kristen Curtiss

                            You may have heard about the “new” (well, not so new anymore) social media platform called Google+.

                            If you don’t already use it, there’s a multitude of reasons why you should have a presence on Google+, from SEO value to thought leadership. One big reason you should try Google+, a reason often missing from many lists, is the Google Hangout.

                            A Google Hangout is a tool that allows you to have a group conversation. You can capture photos, share your screen, and message friends. You can also turn any Hangout into a live video call with up to 10 friends. It’s essentially Skype for more than 2 people. Once you hit the “broadcast” button on your Google Hangout, your Google+ connections can watch your video live on your Google+ page. The video will also be posted to your YouTube account to allow for promotion after you’ve held your Hangout.

                               @AdTechConsults Mentioned in See In Colors' Blog Post by Lisa Nelson

                                Just got back home from a room full of fired up women entrepreneurs! I’m talking about Spark & Hustle.

                                Tory Johnson is the visionary behind Spark & Hustle a national conference for business owners. I was delighted that one of the stops on the tour was local for me in Washington, DC. Here are a few highlights from this 2 day conference ...

                                During the 2 day event, Tory strongly encouraged and reminded us to sit at a new table after each break and meet new people. I took her advice and it made all the difference in the world.

                                So I want to give a shout out to just a few of the many fabulous entrepreneurs I met like Tceniccola, SunshineHope, ElegantGranny, AdTechConsults, TheDesignHall, NextBrides, Heidi Pommer, Saralyn Collins, Scribbles and Works and Linda Pritchett.

                                  Romona Foster Mentioned in The Inaugural Code(Her) Conference by Sarah Jedrey

                                    The Social Media Trainer and Consultant at Admin Tech Consulting, Romona Foster is a woman of many talents. Due to the laptop and projector refusing to talk to each other for a half hour, we learned that one of her talents was to memorize the name of 30 people in a few minutes. What could’ve been a dull disaster became a high-energy exchange of ideas about the role of social media and how to convince clients reluctant to change.

                                    The room, with those 30 attendees, represented a range of experience from novice to master. The conversation we had brought home the fact that “social media” is as big and complex a subject as you could imagine. We touched on strategy, platforms, engagement, content sourcing, ethics and laws, time-savers, and stereotypes, and we still hadn’t exhausted ourselves when it was time to depart. But before we did, Romona left us with a good, actionable list of tips and tools especially useful for the less-experienced.
