    Hello. I have a boutique direct marketing consulting business and am currently working with a Fortune 500 company that has asked me to help strategize their use of social media in the area of customer acquisition. I only know the basics of social media so I have a lot to learn in order to provide insight to my client.

    Elizabeth Harmon Social media is a great tool for customer acquisition! Every business is different and so they will require different strategies, however Twitter and LinkedIn are a good place to start!

    Thank goodness for this group! Now I have somewhere to ask my questions and not sound like a complete dweeb in the presence of THE EXPERTS. I've just spent hours completing my Facebook business page but have 0 likes. I feel like the nursery rhythm of having a party and no one to attend. How do I start? What's my next step in getting people to like my page? Tips?

    Elizabeth Harmon Hi Esther. I've just seen your post! Are you still looking for help? Let me know! It's tricky getting your page going to start with, but once you have a few followers, it becomes easier, honest! A good way to get going is to get your friends to like your page. Promote your pages on your website too. There are loads of other ways, but hope this helps to start with.

    I am a conducting an academic research study and exploring how social media can be used to recruit volunteers to participate. Can anyone think of any good places to post an invitation to volunteer.

    Esther Okamura In addition to Ayesha's good idea, most communities have volunteer websites. For example, in Toronto, ours is called, Volunteer Toronto and it hosts 100s of local charities.. For your web search, start with your city government, then drill down to Social Services. There I'm sure you'll come up with an umbrella group that covers many, many of your local charities. Reach out to a few of the Executive Directors of large charities (e.g. YWCA, Salvation Army, etc). Get them on-side and you'll get more help than you need!

    A Toastmasters International colleague and I are in the process of establishing a Toastmasters Club in south west Dublin, Ireland. As part of our marketing campaign we have created a Facebook page and a temporary home page on a web site. Despite this we are struggling to make contact with residents in the locality. How can we overcome this problem using Social Media??

    Ayesha Ambreen Perhaps this is because of lack of research. You might need to check where your customers (residents) are and do target campaigns to attract them to your social media pages. Besides, you might get some benefits through local listings ...FourSquare, Google Places, Facebook places, etc.. Feel free to connect if you need further help.

    Hi there My cousin and I have been rummaging around with a unique Australian themed bridal ensemble business idea for a while. We have just started putting our plans into action. I seem to be the driving force so here I am looking for all the support we can get.

    Esther Okamura Hi Kaz, for your unique Australian themed bridal ensemble business, you'll definitely want to plug into Pinterest. There you'll be able to post pictures which, if I understand your business correctly, will work well with your product line.

    Hi everybody. I have to manage the social fan pages of 3 different sites (for some small local companies). I have created only one page so far on Facebook for one of them. The question is what happen when I use my account to create another two on Facebook? And what about Twitter and Linkdin? Sorry if my question is stupid , but I'm really a newbie.

    Pierre Despres Hi Victoria, I would like to suggest to you the hootsuite.com/ It is a great FREE tool to look at what is happening on all the different accounts and pages at once.

    I happen to be a big Bruce Lee fan, and I will say that nothing is difficult - it is a matter of training.

    Brandiee Sjaarda Nothing in life is difficult ... It comes down to how challenging and fun it becomes. I know it is a huge risk to go from Bruce Lee to Star Wars, but as Yoda would say .... "Try ... There is no try. There is DO or do not". In the belief of a certain redhead .... Failure is NOT an option!
