How do you build, grow and nurture an online community?  How are you using the power of social media for communications and connections,  that are emerging into relationships?   Tuesday,  April 8, 2014 @IntDesignerChat will take to twitter to discuss;  How to use the influence of social media to create meaningful relationships with others and maintain a consistent focus on building your brand.  Surprisingly there are still designers, individuals, and companies that are resisting social media.  These individuals and firms are missing out on a free opportunity to build a following.

Spotting opportunities to build your brand,  requires being generous.  If all you do is take, people will stop responding to you.  To grow in social media you need to establish partnerships with other top influencers in your niche.  And provide your audience with quality content that aligns with their interests and passions.  Are you seizing opportunities to build your brand? 

Social Media is powerful in that it helps to make connections, build relationships, and even build a business! Any one can hop on the social media train and reach out, get engaged and get connected. Reach out and say hello!  Take the opportunity to establish new contacts and relationships.  Whether you’re a professional designer, artist,  architect,  manufacturer, vendor, or a blogger… establishing social media influence, requires investing  your time and attention to creating your brand.

Over the past several years, Interior Designer Chat has worked hard to build and grow a vibrant and interactive community on social channels including  Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Pinterest, LinkedIn, and Google+.  Building a following takes effort and time, and there are no shortcuts.

Interior Designer Chat will be discussing how brands and individuals can leverage blogs to earn influence.   Building and defining influence on the personal and brand level has long been a favorite discussion among the #IntDesignerChat community.

How do we best communicate?   Do we prefer “real-time” interactions with multiple people or do we prefer to have time to think about our thoughts and put them down all at once in a blog post?

#IntDesignerChat will discuss the topic of how individuals can leverage blogs as a way to build influence and their personal brands. And we’ll discuss how brands can use blogging as a way to build influence.

What do YOU think?  If you could only pick one tool to use to build awareness for yourself and or your company, would it be Twitter  or Blogs?   What are the advantages and disadvantages to choosing one over the other?

Blogging is always a popular topic among our #IntDesignerChat community!  And we can guarantee the brands are listening.  Make time to join #IntDesignerChat on Tuesday, June 25, 2013 at 6p ET, 5p CT, 3p PT, and 11p GMT on Twitter.

Q 2:  Which Tool is Better For Building Awareness?   

Q3:  Why do you blog? Is it to get clients or industry connections?

Q 4:  How do you define blogging “success”?  Will you share some of your success stories.

Q 5: In order to be a successful as a design blogger one must be innovative. How do you plan to be innovative?
