Seeking to spread a little more light on the details of the Walker Studios Challenge and getting a little more face to face time with the camera before it all kicks off on Monday, here I am explaining more about the Walker Studios Challenge and what it means to me, and hopefully to those taking part.
While sitting at work the other day I saw a message flash up that Tweasier was looking for some guest content, and after asking them if I could join in they agreed. My topic of choice, Follow Friday. They mentioned that they have a blog post related to the subject, which is about a tool that lets you automatically sort out your Follow Fridays, see here for their post.
So, as I have probably mentioned before, I like social media and networking. A Lot. So, when one of my favourite Tweeters invited me to meet over a brew, I jumped at the chance. I met the amazing Amanda Jackson, of Tigerfish PR to have a discussion about Twitter and the Social Networking world in general.
If they see this, Socks For Happy People may be a little confused, as far as they are aware I haven’t done anything to them apart from Retweeting and Sharing their messages on Facebook, not they are necessarily aware that I am doing that.
I have however in my opinion done them an injustice, for as I mentioned on my last Blog post I have just finished and handed in my Dissertation based on Viral Marketing and Social Media. As part of it I had a section on Case Studies of people and companies that I believe make excellent examples of why Viral Marketing, Social Media or a combination of both to spread their message and their brand. In this section I did not once mention Socks For Happy People and this is what I believe to be an injustice.
As part of my Dissertation at University I undertook research into social media and it’s use as a means of distributing marketing messages virally. To some that would sound like an excuse for a student to sit about on Facebook and Twitter all day and to an extent those people would be right. Not about doing nothing though.
