San Diego Urban Land Young Leaders Social Media Panel

Tonight, I'll be on the panel discussing how small and local businesses can use social media to their advantage. Here are my key points:

  • Focus on quality instead of quantity. Be consistent. Be real.
  • Make sure someone is assigned to the task with definitive plans.
  • Focus on Google Places, Facebook, and YouTube
  • Other secondary tools include Google Alerts, blogging, twitter, skweal.com and groupon
  • Showcase customers – not just yourself
  • Answer back customer praises and complaints

Finally, remember that the quickest way to overnight success is to work years on it.

Here are a few links that I've found that can also be of help to you:
