Adam Urbanski Asked, Denise Wakeman Asked, and You Should Ask, Too!

If you haven’t been spending much time on your Facebook home page, I’d get over there – Pronto!

Some of the foremost experts in online marketing, visibility, and social media are hanging out on Facebook. The benefits of connecting and interacting with these folks are too numerous to count and they can teach you a lot about how to “engage” your community.

So what are the quintessential business-building professionals up to these days?

In addition to generously giving you the opportunity to strut your stuff, they’re looking for ideas and asking questions.

Adam Urbanski had yet another spark of genius this week and started “Marketing Monday” on Facebook.  Every Monday he’s giving you the opportunity to post a link (okay, a shameless plug) to one of your offers.

And on Tuesdays, he’s calling his Facebook thread, “Cool Tool Tuesday” where people can post their favorite free or low-cost biz tool.

Ya can’t beat that deal!

Adam also comes up with some awesome (and thought-provoking) questions like the one he asked today: “What excites you the most about your business?”

If you want to engage your social media community, your group members, your fans, your blog readers, and your target audience, start asking questions.

Interaction is the key. We humans LOVE to answer questions and LOVE to share our knowledge and expertise.

Denise Wakeman posed a great question on Facebook today asking people how they’ve been using their Facebook business page to engage their fans.  Denise is one savvy and smart cookie.

What happened next?

Cool and creative ideas immediately starting rolling in!

By asking this question, Denise opened the door for people to put their thinking caps on, step into the spotlight, and shine.  She also opened the door for others to grab those ideas and run with them.

Win-Win for everyone.

If you’re in need of ideas to grow your business, establish credibility, and increase your visibility, start asking questions and post them on social media venues like Facebook.

Do you have a question you’d like to ask here?  Fire away!

    “Search engine love”, ya say? Didn’t think anyone would notice — anyone but someone as astute as you, that is! 🙂

    Thank you, graciously, for the compliments. You have, most assuredly, made my heart sing. And I am so honored that you stopped by today, Adam. Your presence here means more to me than a ticket to the Super Bowl!

    Make every moment magical and meaningful,
    Melanie

  • Hey Melanie,

    Your blog readers are very lucky to have a smart leader like you make them aware of cool things happening online! Kudos to you for being so observant and for sharing what you learn with others.

    Coincidently, very savvy of you to use the names of marketers who are already being searched for online in your blog post; way to score some “search engine love”!

    Thanks for the recognition and for all your support on my FB page. I appreaciate YOU!

    Smiles,

    Adam

  • Thanks, Nicole, and my curiosity is definitely piqued by the title of your recent post (Ways NOT to get people to read your blog). Yikes!! Sounds like info everyone needs to know.

    Thanks for stopping by today — appreciate the visit! 🙂

  • Great tips, some I am already incorporating and some that I plan to start immediately!

  • P.S. Kudos to you, Denise! I see you’ve added a QR Code to your blog. You leave no stones unturned. 🙂

    I coordinate the marketing for an ophthalmology practice in Glendale and we just created our first QR Code for an ad we run in the CV Weekly newspaper. The ad exec was shocked at how “large” the code is but I explained to her the size makes it easier to scan.

    See you in the blogosphere,
    Melanie

  • Delighted to see you here, Denise, and thanks for knocking on my door today.

    Blog On … and On!

  • Thanks for sharing my post about engaging on Facebook, Melanie. You shared some great ideas on that FB thread and I hope to see you run with them. Here’s the thread if any of your readers wish to contribute: http://www.facebook.com/BlogSquad/posts/177463038957358
