NAWBO Lexington Social Media Presentation

Last week, I was honored to speak at a NAWBO Lexington luncheon about using social media for business. The members asked great questions and I was happy to get to meet some of them. I plan on getting more involved in organizations such as these as it’s a great way to stay connected with what’s going on in the community. Sometimes it’s hard for me to come up for air from behind my MacBook in my home office, so these events are a great way to force me out of my cave!

I received a kind note from a member who was in attendance about the presentation:

“Emily, I just wanted to complement you on your excellent presentation Tuesday at NAWBO. You are very engaging, an expetise, and it was very helpful. Plus I just checked your blog and I love it, too.”

Using Social Media to Drive Blog Traffic

At the end of September, I had the opportunity to speak at FitBloggin, a conference for fitness bloggers, about using social media to drive blog traffic.  As a fitness blogger and a social media company owner, this was an awesome opportunity to present something I’m really excited about.

Session Overview:

So many of us love Facebook for personal use and staying in touch with friends. What if you could use Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Pinterest and other social media channels to increase blog traffic and build a stronger community? With existing social media sites gaining more mainstream popularity and new sites appearing monthly, how do you determine which are the best ones for increasing blog readership?

Topics covered include:

  • An overview of the most popular social media sites and any emerging sites that could be beneficial to blog traffic
  • Ways to optimize your presence on social media channels
  • A set of tools you can use to more efficiently use your time on social media sites
  • Ways to measure and evaluate which of your social media efforts are bringing in the most traffic
