Social Media in Emergencies Survey: What does it tell Alberta business owners?

Oct 14, 2012   //   by Raylene   //   Blog, Lethbridge, Social Media for Business  //  Comments Off on Social Media in Emergencies Survey: What does it tell Alberta business owners?

This week, the “Social Media in Emergencies Survey”, conducted for the Canadian Red Cross, was released. The survey shows that Albertans are more likely to use social media during an emergency than other provinces. “70 per cent of Alberta residents say they would sign up for electronic alerts in times of official warnings, compared to 50 per cent of the rest of the Canadians.”

Martin Pollard, an Alberta manager for disaster management with the Red Cross, said, “[Social Media] really helps info get disseminated to the most vulnerable people at the most vulnerable time… It is transforming how people can stay informed and stay safe.” Pollard also stated, “Not only can it be used, but it can be used in a very useful fashion.” Read more >>

Grow Your Business by Building Community with Facebook Business Pages

Twitter Community Working Together in #Lethbridge

May 10, 2012   //   by Raylene   //   Blog, Lethbridge, Social Media for Business, Twitter  //  1 Comment

I see the power of social media working every day, because that’s what I do – help businesses to put social media to work – so I’m always watching to see HOW it’s working. The truth is, if you are actively engaging in a meaningful way on any of the various social media outlets, it WILL work to increase the visibility of you and your business, which in turn will hopefully lead to more clients and customers and sales!

I really like it when I find good local examples of social media at work. I often find such examples on Twitter.  The Twitter community here in Lethbridge seems to be pretty supportive and very interactive. And that community is growing every day!

The most recent example of social media working for the benefit of an organization happened just today!  It started with Lethbridge Habitat for Humanity sharing a tweet:

That tweet was re-tweeted by just ONE other user, @KirksTireLtd, to begin with. Within half an hour, 11 more visits were recorded at Habitat’s website. That may not seem like a lot to you, but EVERY visit counts, and these 3 visits OVER the previous record were a HUGE encouragement to Habitat! Read more >>
