Hey everyone just writing you this message on a wonderful Saturday morning here at home. I was actually inspired to write this particular blog by some of the recent events taking place in our country. Last week there was a major earthquake on the east coast and would you believe that the news broke (from what I’ve seen) on TWITTER. I could not believe that something so important and so relevant to our country was broadcast first on Twitter. However, it is important for us (myself included) to realize that things like Twitter and Facebook are the new medium. They are the new way to spread news and get your message to millions of people and we need to embrace it.
The trend right now is changing as more and more people use Social Networks like Facebook and Twitter to find out information, report information and just share daily thoughts with other people. Gone are the days when you have to wake up and walk to the front yard to grab your newspaper, now you can just get an app for that on your phone. Most mornings I read the news on my cell phone before I even get out of bed. The Internet and this insane “connectivity” that we now have has simply changed the way we live our lives all the way down to how we wake up in the morning.
It’s a crazy thought, but it’s very true. So with that in mind I want to embrace it (as should you) and start to publish/broadcast more of our information via sites like Twitter and Facebook. As you know last week I ran a contest and gave away $100 on my Facebook Fan pages obviously this was an ethical bribe to get you to join me there so we can keep you updated with the information and trainings I am publishing weekly. This week I am doing the same thing, but on Twitter so here’s how it works.
I am giving away $100 to one Twitter follower – Announcement will be via Twitter so you’ll need to keep watching to find out who wins!
If I can hit 10,000 Twitter followers by September 6, 2011 I will up that to giving 5 people each $100 … therefore increasing YOUR ODDS of winning… you can help me get more followers by simply hitting that RE TWEET BUTTON right above this post.
Simple request. Great ethical bribe… and in the end you and I stay more connected and after all that’s what it’s all about!
