How to Grow and Mobilize Your Social Media Followers: My Bridge Conference Presentation

Posted: Updated:

I've been invited to do a presentation at the Bridge conference next month. The presentation title is, "How to Grow and Mobilize Your Social Media Followers." I am sitting on a panel with three other great women. It promises to be a fantastic event.

I was in the middle of organizing my slides for our upcoming discussion when it dawned on me. I should go out into the social media universe and ask my friends, followers and readers for their advice.

What are your thoughts?

What do you find particularly useful when working on growing and mobilizing your Social Media followers?

What have you seen others do that you think has been the most effective/helpful?

What are some of the worst examples that you have seen?

What about the best examples?

Thanks in advance for any thoughts that you care to share!
