Finally, Google+

So, recently I’ve been becoming more and more of a Google+ fan. I will admit, it’s taken me awhile, but it’s slowly been growing on me.

I love the layout and the “Communities” feature. The folks that are very active on Google+ are also friendly and eager to network.

I did have one pet peeve though, it was the size of the cover photos. I mean seriously, there is no reason we EVER need the cover photo to take up half the screen….am I right!?

But I was so excited to see this morning, an update to Google+ pages, that includes a lovely, SMALLER, cover photo! Hooray!!

Picture 5 Picture 6

They look SO much better! Navigating the screen is much easier and I’m a happy social media girl, once again! Thanks Google+!

Do you like the new layout? Or do you miss the larger photos? Let me know, I’m always curious to see if my feelings match everyone else’s!

A Social Media Tip for Success

Twitter Tip: If you only tweet about yourself & your brand, but never interact with other twitter users, it’s like going to a party full of fabulous people, but you go to a back room, close the door and talk to yourself!

Talk to everyone! Be friendly, be courteous and enjoy the party!!

A whole new chapter begins…

Hi there…Happy New Year!

As 2013 begins I start a whole new chapter in my life. I have been working a regular 9-5 gig for over 13 years. For the last 8 of those years I’ve been moonlighting as a Social Media firm, crafty chica, and blogger under the name Hello Sweetcheeks.

Over the years I’ve been working with many small businesses, helping them grow their internet presence. Through all this I have realized that I really enjoy doing social media! I love spending the time making connections and building up a network for different companies. It’s a challenge that’s both fun and entertaining for me. I’ve decided this is the path I want to take.

I thought long and hard about how to make my brand the best it could be. Somehow I couldn’t imagine myself pitching the name Hello Sweetcheeks to a male owned business and ever being able to get them to take me seriously. Heck, most female owned businesses would probably laugh too!

So, as of January 2013 I have officially changed my company name to Get Social Co.

I am officially moving to Social Media for small business…full time!

This is the most excited I’ve been about something in a long time. I’m so thankful to all my friends, family & clients that have encouraged me to take this next (BIG) step and I look forward to all that 2013 has to offer.
