Denise Wakeman of the Blog Squad joins host Angie A. Swartz this week as the guest on Twitter Talk Radio.
Each week on Twitter Talk Radio, we spend an hour broken up into four segments when we cover:
- Twitter and Social Media Happenings in the News
- A Guest Offering Great Case Studies and Examples of How People and Businesses are Using Twitter and Social Media
- Useful Tips for Listeners
Denise and I discuss the Facebook/Twitter Denial-of-Service Attacks, The Facebook Purchase of FriendFeed for $45 Million,@EV & @Sara having a new BABY, Shout out to Mari Smith (@MariSmith) on her Birthday!, Chicago Public Schools ban communicating with Social Media.
I interview Denise about her online marketing career. Denise, an early adopter and owner of The Blog Squad, had her first website in 1997 and started blogging in 2004. She says a blog is a social media tool that can add comments and personality to your online presence. Denise shares how her own career changed as she integrated Facebook, Linkedin and Twitter.
We discuss how Denise used Utterli to post updates about her progress while running a marathon. Why? Because people want to know you and allowing people to see a personal side of you opens the door to having a conversation. Many barriers are removed because of social media tools. We discuss how Denise’s career is at a different level because of use of social media. Lastly, use of VIDEO today is so easy. It can be planned, produced and up on a site in 30 minutes with tools like the FLIP camera, YouTube & Vimeo.
Denise and I discuss how she used Twitter to raise money for Micro loans via KIVA to support causes in many countries around the world. You can still contribute to Denise’s $5,000 goal-contribute today at her KIVA Challenge!
