Our findings:

1. Facebook

No one can deny that 1.15 billion active Facebook users with a 21 percent increase in usage over the past 12 months is something to ignore.
RECOMMENDATION #!: If you are not “on” Facebook, STEP UP! Get a personal profile so that you search, explore and be in the know!
RECOMMENDATION #2: Getting a Business FanPage is like being listed in yellow pages or in the phone book. If you’re not there, you are no longer relevant to some segments of the population.

2. Google+

Second biggest social network. Though ignored by many, many agree that people are more curious how to use it. Most speculate that it will be EVEN MORE IMPORTANT with easy integration of all gmail accounts / google products.
RECOMMENDATION: Set up your business profile. Simple things like having your profile pic, email and phone number are openly searchable in ANY person’s gmail account getting you found quicker. Doing “shares” of your posts in Google Profiles automatically get emailed to your CIRCLES; an equivalent of doing a blast email / email blast without any set-up!!!

3. Twitter

Simplicity. Fast. News breaking qualities. By far the single most important feedback / comment creating & generating tool for customer service to sales to network updates to reaction.
RECOMMENDATION: We can teach you everything from account development, cultivating followers, proper use of hashtags, starting conversation and  moderation conversations.

4. LinkedIN

LinkedIn has been my favorite platform since the beginning. At first just a CV / Resume building opportunity has become a platform for sharing my client list and affiliations.
RECOMMENDATION: Explore Groups and consider starting one. You’ll quickly discover that facilitating the conversation as administrator generates more than just feedback and interest!

5. YouTube and 6. Vimeo

YouTube…. (and VIMEO)…. get those videos created and find ways to make them go viral. That has been the single goal of millions of people gaining their 15 seconds to fame. I have many friends who do that professionally and will be unveiling my list of top notch directors who are avail for hire!

7. Instagram

Instagram… 100% photo sharing and simple captions.

8. Pinterest

READ MORE on my take on PINTEREST: http://broekmancomm.com/how-to-use-pinterest/

Pinterest helps people collect and organize the things they love. You create boards showcasing things that you like. Each board tells a unique story about what we care about. People can FOLLOW your boards whos pins they like (like yours!). A pin could be a gift, receipt, quote, picture of a desired place to visit or place of interest. If you add the “Pin it Button” to your website, other people can use it to pin your stuff to their Pinterest board. 😉 Then lots more people can REPIN those things or click back to your website adding to NEW DISCOVERY!

9. Vine

I recently embraced the use of VINE for marketing promotions, PR and business development. I’m the type of guy that can always find a way to make something practical, but VINE for the 30-something marketer…. definitely out of the box. READ MORE HERE – http://broekmancomm.com/vine-promotions/

What is Vine? Vine is a mobile service that lets you create and share short looping videos. Videos you post to Vine will appear on your Vine profile and the timelines of your Vine followers. Posts can also be shared to Twitter or Facebook. (straight from Vine’s website (https://support.twitter.com/articles/20170317 – yes, Twitter owns VINE!). For more, check out the FAQs!!!!

10. Tumblr

Tumblr lets you effortlessly share anything … Post text, photos, quotes, links, music, and videos from your browser, phone, desktop, email or wherever you happen to be. You can customize everything, from colors to your theme’s HTML. Let’s compare this to WORDPRESS as a blog.
