I read a very cool piece on social media at www.businessinsider.com . Although he was harsher than I would have been, one of the points that resonated with me was this: “You’d never give the intern permission to write the corporate press release to accompany an announcement, so why the hell are you listening to the 22 year old who says, ‘We’re going to do this social media thing because it’s cool?”
I’m working on the online marketing for a client of mine who is a highly respected XXXXX. The client is XXXXX and they have their own range of beauty products in the marketplace. As a well placed beauty blogger I thought your blog at British beauty blog would be a great place to get some coverage of the products. I have products that I can send out and I was looking to get some reviews of the products themselves.
I’ve got a whole file of social media bloopers.. I’m collecting them like I collect nail polishes and can safely say that while my nail polish collection has been years in the making, my bloopers file has taken moments. It would be nice to know that somewhere in the ether is someone who has a mix of both social media skills and social skills.
