Yesterday kitestring hosted Snow Ball – a social media social at the Staircase Theatre in Hamilton. It was a fun filled morning of learning about social media, enjoying each others company and eating some scones.

The “kitestring players’ started the Social with a short skit titled “Lemonade Stand”, a story about building your brand using online communications. It’s the story of three lemonade stand business owners, Cindy, Kevin and Teddy.

Cindy from Lemonade Inc. has decided not to implement social media into their business, sticking to what she thinks are tried and true modes of business development.

Kevin, owner of The Best Lemonade in the World knows that he should get involved in social media. So, he comes up with his own plan to implement social media as part of his business, shouting information about his business whenever and wherever he chooses at whoever happens to be online. He plans how often he will check his social networking accounts and even what he plans to broadcast, sometimes days in advance.

Theodore, Teddy for short, from Squeezed Lemonade, also knows that social media is valuable for his business. He uses his vision, mission and values to decide how he will engage the communities that best fit his business’ culture.

Regardless of whether they knew it or not, each of these three companies are part of a new market place. We pretended that balloons were social media interactions, and that everyone in the audience was the world’s online audience.

It was a great exercise to show how building relationships, being transparent and becoming part of the conversation is a good way to get social media to work for you.

We also had an amazing presentation by Tricia Mumby of Mabel’s Labels on how social media is working for their company.

We learned about the different social media outlets from Brandon, and Jenn and I talked about building your brand using social media. Oh! And Cameron helped us all loosen up by playing a few fun ice breaker games.

The day ended with an old fashioned Tea Social, jam packed with cupcakes, cookies, tiny sandwiches and scones. Deeeeeelish!

Thank you everyone who attended! We had a blast and you made the day so fun!

I also what to thank these great sponsors!

I am hesitant to even share my Twitter account with friends and family, not because I don’t want them to see it, but because it’s mostly about nerdy stuff, and would bore the hell out of them. I made sure to update and fill in my Google profile, so that if someone was to look for me using Google, they would see what I want them to see.

Do yourself a favour – be strategic and craft it to reflect the brand you want to present into the marketplace, one that will speak to your audience, stand the test of time and, leave them with an instant positive impression. As I made my way down the journey of having our first child, my husband and I spent hours and hours discussing over what to name the new little boy that was about to enter our world.
