    Are there any social media experts on UKBF?

    I'm an old timer here on UKBF but haven't been around much of late for various reasons but I'm guessing there must be a few experts or gurus hanging around to offer some pearls of wisdom?

    I wouldn't say we're experts - and wouldn't trust anyone who said they were one - but we can certainly help.

    What do you want to know?

    Regards

    Mike

    Welcome back Gary!

    I don't claim to be an expert but have made social media work for me.

    What exactly is your query?

    Regards

    Dotty

    Agree with Mike.. the term "social media expert" is a bit risky as it's so broad, and I don't think I would trust anyone who claims to be one :)

    If you do an advanced search for the word "twitter" or "facebook" or whatever for all posts you can see the people who post a lot of answers and advice on particular areas.

    I confess to being a twitterholic and do this for clients now for lead gen (natural spin off from telemarketing I'm afraid) and whilst I would not claim to be an expert on social media in general, like the others I could probably give some advice :)

    I'm a huge fan of Twitter for marketing for all companies, and Facebook for some industries.

    I'd love to exchange advice in this thread, ask away!

    I wont say we are experts as thats been said not to be true but we have helped with social media for small companies to multinationals, If you want to send me a pm and im sure we can tell you more about what we can do with in social media.

    Most people are talking about twitter and facebook but you may want to think a bit further abroad by thinking about forums like this one and bloggers and many other platforms.

    We can help find you influencers as well as help with outreach and engagement.

    We can also help to create the assets to help with social media such as facebook apps and viral videos.

    Looks like you're saved, OP. The expert (or should I say guru) has arrived!

    Full agreement, I'd also recommend Peter.
    He even has case studies and proof of results from SM campaigns he has undertaken, top bloke as well!

    I'm a SMNGuru hell I even predicted 12 months ago that Twitter would not stand alone but be bought up as a bolt on and last week both Google & Facebook took my advice and started playing the space...so ask away.
