Sites like Twitter and Facebook are becoming powerful tools to help you promote yourself and your business. In fact Amy Wood of WSPA, one of our local news anchors, proves this every day as she reaches out to people in her viewing area through these Social Media platforms.

Today, I had the privilege of attending and filming the presentation she did for Social Media Club Spartanburg. Amy is an outstanding example of how one person can make a difference by reaching out to a select group of people through these new mediums in a way that promotes involvement and fosters loyalty for both her, and her station.

The following videos are loaded tips and pointers that will help you better understand how to use Social Media to promote yourself and your business, and how to do this even when your time is in short supply. Enjoy, and let me know what you think.
