Hi everyone, I hope all are doing well. Here, I’m taking a much-needed break from packing to sit down at the computer and address a few things which have come up over the past few days. I’d like to talk about my groups, in fact, I’ll be posting this a few places so if it’s a repeat for those who are on multiple groups of mine, please forgive.
I’ll also be putting this onto my blog and comments there are also wanted and welcome.
Here’s what I’d like to talk about. All of my groups are discussion groups. This means if you keep it polite, reasonably clean and remember that everyone has differing opinions and beliefs you can chat about pretty much anything you wish.
That having been said, those who post their work regularly are much appreciated. This goes for those who post as guests on my blog as well. Some who do have expressed a wish to have a bit more feedback on those things which they post. We’d also like to see a few more who are able sharing blog posts over onto their blogs, social media and into their own email groups where applicable.
If you share onto social media, it would be totally awesome if you’d tag or mention those who the work belongs to, so they know you did. If you share onto your blog and you don’t see them commenting to say thanks, it’s most likely they are not following you and don’t know you shared. It’s always a great idea to state that you shared and let the owner of the work know so they can come and comment to your followers as that’s proper etiquette.
In short, I’d like to see everyone utilizing my groups a bit more.
At the end of this email, I’ll share links to my groups and pages on Facebook so those of you who don’t have that information can pick it up and follow.
To those who have pages I’m managing please let me know what work of other’s I may share onto your pages so I may start doing so. “Networking” is the name of the game.
I’d also like to remind you who are on the IOGroups.com groups that if the daily email is ever too much for you, it is easy enough to change your email preferences. Just go to the website and make the necessary changes. Earlier in the year, Casey posted exact instructions how to do that and it is still listed in the topics online for your reading.
On the Writer’s Grapevine email group, we have about 40 members. On the Freedom To Be Me group there are about 28 people or so. Not all of them are on the other group, so between those two that’s quite a bit of possible networking if everyone actually put it to use.
I have over 400 email subscribers on my blog as well. Again, this is great networking possibility. If your work is on my blog, you need to be available to not only make an initial comment to thank readers for reading but you should also be available for follow-up comments.
This also goes for social media.
As stated, I’ve a few Facebook groups and pages as well, so you should also be making use of them.
Remember, people cannot know who you are and what you’re doing if they don’t know about you.
You don’t have to be a client to participate so please keep that in mind.
- That’s about it. I hope everyone has a great evening or if it’s morning where you are a great morning.
