Can You Do Social Media Reruns?

Can You Do Social Media Reruns?

I don’t really know but I’m going to give it a whirl. Actually I have been giving it a whirl to rerun social media reruns since I committed in October 2014 to speak at the 2015 New Orleans MDRT in June 2015. This commitment also included speaking on a panel of coaches, publishing a book and designing a brand new exhibit.

On top of that we have been very very busy with coaching clients, speaking and enjoying life since that time.

There have been some decent social media posts since October 2014 that include the speaking transcription submission for the MDRT, transcriptions of the questions and answers that I offered on the panel of coaches at the MDRT, as well as the following;

  • October 24, 2014 – Do The Mind’s GPS Cells Position, Navigate, Remember and Repeat Insanity?
  • November 10, 2014 – On December 31, Will

    Taking a Social Media Time Out

    I’m Taking A Social Media Time Out From 140 Character Posts To FaceBook, LinkedIn And Twitter.

    My unique abilities are coaching, speaking and writing.

    Just at the moment I’m at near capacity with coaching and the writing that is required for multiple 2015 MDRT New Orleans deadlines that include speaking presentation bio, transcription, book and tradeshow booth. This is on top of the creative work that is required for upcoming speaking dates.

    Here is the cover of The Inspirational Tipping Point Financial Services Edition Book.

    Top 50 Social Media Terms All Advisors Should Know By Amy McIlwain

    Sometimes the social media landscape can feel like a whole other planet.  It comes with its own unique etiquette, customs, and language.  If you’re an advisor just starting to explore this strange new world, or if you’re an old pro, there are always new words and phrases to learn.  To help you get all the social vernacular straight, we’ve created the Financial Social Media Dictionary (a close relative to Webster). Here’s our list of need to know social media lingo for advisors, broken down by platform:

    General Social Media Terms

    Authenticity: A trait which is valued on social media and blogs.  This allows consumers to get to know the real person behind your financial firm.

    Compliance: Social media activity that meets the regulatory conditions

    Does Social Media Fuel Business Unrest?

    Does Social Media Fuel Business Unrest?

    My January edition of Wired Magazine arrived early last week and the cover headline caught my attention – #RIOT – How Social Media Fuels Social Unrest.

    The cover headline triggered the memory of a recent conversation that I had with a corporate communications specialist.

    The corporate communications specialist was telling me that it was essential for big business and corporations to have a social media manager to monitor and respond to what’s being said about big business and corporations on social media.

    Here Is A System To Improve Your Recommendations On LinkedIn

    Here Is A System To Improve Your Recommendations On LinkedIn

    Here is a system that we just created to simplify receiving Recommendations on LinkedIn.

    I believe that clients have far too much on their mind today to stop to take the time to create a LinkedIn recommendation.

    Just like asking for testimonials, we have always used this procedure to create these kinds of testimonials.

    We have taken the step to another level by writing the following procedure to give our advisor clients that have given us testimonials the instructions on how to imbed their specific testimonial into a LinkedIn recommendation.

    I believe that the advisor or coach in our case must make it easier for their client to do the recommendation or it will likely not happen.

    Given the strength of our client relationships and the testimonials, the recommendations on LinkedIn should be seamless.

    One last thing, as far as do’s and don’ts when asking for
