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.

16 Mar

Refferal Marketing

Join Interior Designer Chat on Twitter, Tuesday March 18, for our Topic: Referrals: How to Get Them And Keep Them Coming.  If you want to build a continuous stream of new business,  referrals from clients are important.  According to the New York Times, 65% of new business comes from referrals.

No matter how big or small your company is you will have a better chance of success if your customers and referral partners are working for you by providing referrals.  Referrals are a marketing tool commonly called word of mouth marketing.  Historically this was used in person, but now with the internet and social media, word of mouth can be passed along on and offline.

Clients who love our work and what we do, are happy to give referrals. A recommendation from a client provides credibility and often reduces doubt in a new prospects mind.  Often a client feels they are helping someone by putting them in touch with a professional “in the know” or a products that they love.   Why not get people talking about you and your company? It creates an awareness, buzz, and leaves customers feeling good about your business.

Join #IntDesignerChat March 18, for our global conversation on twitter and share how you thank and reward those who refer business your way.   

Referrals,  do you actively seek them out or simply cross your fingers and hope they come?

What are the challenges of finding referrals?

What problems do you solve and what makes you a good choice?

How do you take the time to thank and reward those who refer business your way?

How do you influence the amount of referrals you get?   What proactive approaches do you take?

What can you do to increase your referrals?

Have you ever been caught talking about a brand or a product?

What can you do to increase the buzz about your business and get people to use word of mouth marketing?

Set your iCal for #IntDesignerChat Tuesday March 18 Topic: Referrals: How to Get Them And Keep Them Coming.  6pm EST, 5pm CST, 3pm PST and 11pm GMT.
