Social Media Power

JL Santiago Aquino

After i log -in on the internet the first thing that i will do is to check my Gmail account. After that I will check all the updates of all my primary SNS (social networking sites) like Facebook, Twitter & Plurk. I have so many accounts on all these SNS. Twitter, Plurk, Digg, Friendster, Facebook, Multiply, FormSpring, Tumblr, Yahoo Meme, Identi.ca, Fizzer.PH, BrightKite, Aloo.PH, FourSquare, StumbleUpon, Youtube & a lot more.

I signed up primarily not just to gain cyber friends & to create an online presence for myself. But to promote my blogs too. If done right, you will be amazed on its effectivity. For instance in the opening of another season of Pinoy Big Brother, (the hit reality show of ABS-CBN) one of my blog got a whopping 11,213 hits on one day, no SEO done.


Just pure social media marketing. I created a Facebook Fanpage and a Twitter account for this blog of mine few months ago and little did I know that I can fully utilize the power of it few days ago. 60+ % of my traffic that day is from Twitter & Facebook & the remaining is from those organic searches from Google & Yahoo. I found out about this trick accidentally and I want to learn more about it. So The 3rd Social Networking Conference 2010 is really apt for me because I live and breath on the internet. I am online for more than 7 hours a day and being a struggling blogger I can really use all the lessons learned after I attend this conference. Here are the other reason...

S - ocial networking. this word is so vague I need to fully understand all the concepts that surrounds it.
O- nline media. This is the "in" thing now. Gone are the days where you have to wait for the newspapers to print out before you read the latest news.
C - onference like this one will help people like Social Networkers, Bloggers, (like me) Managing Directors, General Managers, Digital Strategist, CRM Managers, Direct Marketing Managers, Database Managers, Brand Managers, Category Managers, Product Managers, Advertising Managers, Corporate Communication Managers, Marketing Managers, Internet Marketers, Media Managers, Content Providers, Web Developers to fully utilize the use of social media as a way to get to traffic to their website, to create brand awareness or just to create an online presence.
I -  n this generation, where all people are already jumping on the social media bandwagon. I don't want to be left out.
A - BS-CBN's Maria Ressa who once worked for CNN will be present in this conference to give a talk. Enough said.
L - ots of online people I know & I admired will be in this conference & this is the right time to finally meet them.

N - ew Media. That's what they called online writer or BLOGGGERS which already got a lot followers on their own. They are considered as a source of reliable news now. I want to know how did they do that, by attending this very important conference.
E - mail Marketing talk by CHINIE HIDALGO-DIAZ of Teleforce Asia Inc. is so interesting because almost all people think it's already dead.
T - he awarding of of Social Networking Awards, where I nominated a handful of companies & various start-ups, will also happening here.
W - orldwide. That is your audience at at Social Networking Sites.
O - ne of the people I admired online, Janette Toral, the founder of DigitalFilipino is also here to give a talk on Social Media Study.
R - ight now I don't really consider myself as a pro when it comes to this field, so attending this event will take me a notch higher.
K - nowing the right people. that is one key to success in Social Networking.
I - 'm so  interested on the topic of Janette Toral entitled "Using Social Media in Search Engine Marketing Campaigns and It Influences Your Search Engine Rankings" It really suitable for blogger like me.
N - otable online people like JOEY ALARILLA, the Social Media Editor of Yahoo! Southeast Asia will also be present on the event. I can't wait to meet him.
G - lobe Telecom's Paul John Pena is so interesting too. They are the one of the leading Philippine company when it comes to online presence.

New Blog Header For SM City Marilao

JL Santiago Aquino

Since all SM Malls will changed their logo this April 2010, I made a little changes at the blog of SM Marilao, I just changed the logo on the shopping bag that girl is holding & add some lens flare too :D I don't like their new logo..

"Parents spend the first part of our lives teaching us to walk and talk, and the rest of it telling us to sit down and shut up."
