Afternoon Tea and Tweets
Good afternoon lovely Dorset Teamsters! In case you haven't already taken notice of this via the team forum or any of the Facebook pages-groups, today's Treasury Tuesday theme is 'Afternoon Tea'! Still time to get a nice treasury in if you want to participate or go peruse some of the treasuries created by wonderful team members!
In other news, our Twitter Hour this week is a social chat, a chance to get to know other team members, their likes, dislikes, habits and more! Please do join us at 7:30 on Twitter and don't forget to use the hashtag #dorsetteam when replying to the questions/chat prompts.
I was away until late yesterday evening so apologies for posting a bit later than I had hoped. Trying to get back into the swing of things is always a bit tough when one has been away, isn't it?
Last week's twitter chat theme was all about Social Media. It seems, from the discussion, that people are mainly using Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook to connect with customers on a regular basis. Are these platforms you use regularly?
Building reach on social media should also help translate into more sales and it seems that those taking part in the discussion last week came to the conclusion that the most effective platforms to do this on seem to be Instagram, Twitter and Pinterest. Posting product photos as well as work in progress ones are always a good idea as well.
All in all, it seems that we are all learning by trial and error what works best and what doesn't when it comes to social media. This is why it is great to have these twitter chats as it gives us a chance to talk things out and bounce ideas off each other. Please do join in tonight to get to know each other a little better.
Next week's Treasury Tuesday theme is: Gorgeous Greens!
Next week's Twitter Hour Chat theme is: Selling at Events, I am sure this will be a great chat especially for those of us who are a bit newer to this kind of selling.
Look forward to tweeting with you all later!
