CAPITALIZE ON SOCIAL MEDIA

HOW I WENT FROM ZERO TO 380,000 TWITTER FOLLOWERS WITHOUT SPENDING A DIME

As social media is becoming more engrained in our everyday lives, it is becoming imperative for businesses to get on board. And Twitter is huge for companies, as it provides a place to share news, engage with loyal customers and attract new ones. But it isn’t easy. While some opt for quick fixes, like buying followers (something I have never done), I don’t see the point in these sketchy tactics. It may offer short-term spike, but it doesn’t provide the kind of engagement that organic followers do. When I joined the social media movement in March of 2009, I was just an observer for the first six months. But by remaining consistent and sticking with daily-following methods, my account began to grow. Now with more than 380,000 followers, people often ask me for advice on growing a following on Twitter. Here are a few very simple ways to grow your following (along with the process of what I do on Twitter) that you could also implement on your other social channels. Return favors. Follow people that retweet or favorite your tweets, especially when they take the time to read articles you’ve written and share a comment with you. Also take the opportunity to engage when possible. The more you reach out, the more folks will return and reciprocate -- by following or making comments. You can apply this across all your social networks. Remain active. Follow new people every day even if you can only afford a few minutes on each network. I usually do this on my phone while I am waiting on someone. 2 6 | TEMECU LA TO DAY | M AY • J U N E 20 1 4

Widen your net. People say quality over quantity? True, however, I would rather have both to maximize your reach. You must continue to build your community -- whether online or offline. I’ve met many of my community contacts from my tweets or share. Make retweeting a habit. Although I have many followers to focus and respond to, I make my rounds every day to retweet at least one new person a day. This sometimes will give you a fan for life. You can apply this same exact method to grow your following and community on any of your networks. I love Instagram, I spent a month focusing on following, in no time my social media presence grew there very quickly. That said, you must be consistent in harvesting your following and engaging with others on a daily basis. Pay attention. Keep your eyes open for those who retweet you often or share your blog. Favorite a tweet to let the individual know you see them. At a later point in time, perhaps return the favor as time permits. How does this help with your following? The more people see that you appreciate their efforts, they will more likely retweet you whenever online. The more visible your brand or Twitter handle lands on other pages, the more likely you will generate more organic following. Stay focused. Tweet relevant and high quality content. People will regularly visit your page to share your tweets. When people are excited to pass along your message, additional branding and visibility to your account.

Keep networking and engaging. Take it offline. These days, people share their love of food, nature and other passions. For instance, if you are passionate about photography, organize a photo walk. When you take social media offline, people will share photos of you along with your Twitter handle to their audience, in turn you will get more followers. This is a great way to start a conversation online and offline. Showcase your skills. Twitter is a great place to show off your talents, especially writing and photography. If you are a writer with informative, pertinent content, put it on Twitter. Same goes for amazing photos. People will share your articles or images and this will give you visibility to more admirers. Find influencers. Reach out to other thought leaders and feature 10 people on your blog. They will be happy to share your content to their readers and this will also grow your readers as well as followers. Diversify. Do not put all your eggs in one basket. With this last point, apply these ten tips in other social channels where the methods may fit to grow your network. Technology changes very rapidly, it’s smart to keep a pulse on the current social world. I hope that these ten points will help you grow your brand. Remember the more seeds you plant, the larger the harvest. An hour a day focusing on following will give you a robust community.

TEMECULA’S SILVER ANNIVERSARY

D E C E M B E R 1 S T 2 0 1 4 M A R K S T E M E C U L A’ S 2 5 T H A N N I V E R S A R Y A S A C I T Y. Imagine driving past the corner of Winchester Road and seeing a large field instead of the newly expanded Promenade Mall. As you turn onto Ynez Road, you don’t see Costco, BJ’s Restaurant, Overland Bridge, or even the Abbott expansion….instead there are more fields. This was Temecula 25 years ago. As you can see today, Temecula has grown! December 1st 1989 marked Temecula’s first day as a City. As they say…from that date on the rest was history! Anyone can tell you that Temecula (and Riverside County in general) has experienced significant growth during the past twenty years. Despite this huge growth spurt, we have worked diligently to maintain that “small town feel”, despite our population growth from 25,000 residents at incorporation to over 100,000 today. Maintaining our “small town feel” while providing amenities and services that you would see in much larger Cities is part of what makes Temecula unique. During the past two decades, the City of Temecula has committed itself to quality and excellence in every facet of what we do, from policy decisions to development design standards, public infrastructure, and overall customer service. Temecula has stayed focused on building a City that our citizens can be proud of! Temecula’s slogan of “Old Traditions and New Opportunities” is alive and well and has been a top priority since day one. Temecula

has strived to create a future enriched with higher educational opportunities, maintaining the highest levels of public safety, expanded job growth, a wide variety of retail, food and entertainment opportunities, and keeping well maintained roads, landscaped medians, and beautiful parks at the forefront of our efforts. Community Special Events have become long time traditions that help to define who we are as a City and are important contributors to the high quality of life that our residents have come to know and love.

As we reflect on our past accomplishments, we are thankful for the invaluable relationships created with our business community, local non-profits, and thousands of residents and volunteers who gave their heart and soul to Temecula, its people, and its causes. Without you, Temecula would not be who we are today. Together, we look towards a bright future and an amazing next 25 years! As the late Frank Sinatra sung “The best has yet to come!”

ON THE LEGISLATIVE FRONT The legislative year is off to a blazing start with lawmakers in Sacramento introducing more than 2,000 new bills for consideration this session. This brings the grand total for this two year session to 4,233 pieces of legislation without which, they believe, your life would be incomplete. Adding this to the bills left over from last year and the bills they will amend during the session, the Southwest California Legislative Council will be monitoring nearly 3,000 pieces of legislation this year aimed at taxing, regulating or otherwise impacting your business, your life and your property. The SWCLC, your Chamber advocacy coalition, has adopted positions on 23 bills so far, bills that your representatives on the Council felt would have the greatest impact on our local business community. We’re trying to be as supportive of the few good bills as we can while strenuously opposing the myriad of bad bills that would make California’s business climate even worse. It’s not easy. A m o n g t h e t h u s f a r :

b i l l s

t h e

C o u n c i l

h a s

s u p p o r t e d

• AB 2095 (Wagner) a bill that would make it more difficult to file frivolous lawsuits for ADA compliance issues • AB 2495 (Melendez) a bill that would exempt new businesses from owing the franchise tax fee for their first five years • AB 2353 (Waldron) a bill that would ease CEQA requirements for new water storage facilities during these times of drought • SB 834 (Huff ) a bill that would allow manufacturing facilities to retool and upgrade their existing site without jumping through CEQA hoops • SB 69 (Roth) AB 1521 (Fox) bills returning the pilfered vehicle license fees to the cities of Wildomar, Menifee Jurupa Valley and Eastvale Among the bills the Council has opposed: • SB 935 (Leno) a bill that would accelerate the increase in minimum wage even more than the bill passed just last year • AB 1522(Gomez) a bill mandating employer paid sick days after just one week of employment • SB 1017 (Evans) a bill seeking to expand the oil severance tax driving our fuel bills even higher • SB 1381 (Evans) another attempt to apply costly and unnecessary restrictions on genetically modified foods

• HR 29 (Gomez) a bill that would severely limit options for LOCAL government agencies to contract with private companies to provide services There has been one positive development in the fight to preserve businesses in California and that’s the recent suspension of three Democratic Senators from their floor duties. With these three relieved of their duties, there is no longer a Democratic super-majority in the Senate which means some of the more onerous tax and regulatory bills will not pass or will need to be modified enough to muster some Republican support. That will not necessarily make it any easier for Republican bills or job friendly bills to pass, but it does mean that Democratic lawmakers will at least need to negotiate again if they want their bills to pass. This is particularly beneficial for stifling the wide array of bills attacking Prop 13 by reducing voter thresholds to increase local taxes (ACA 8, SCA 3,4,7,8,9, & 11), bills that were thought to be nearly done deals by Pro Tem Darrell Steinberg. SURPRISE! If you are concerned about a bill that might have an impact on your business or industry, let the Council know at GAD@swcaladvocacy.com. Please join us for lively discussion and legislative updates the 3rd Monday of each month at noon at the Realtor House, 26529 Jefferson Ave. in Murrieta.

GOAL SETTING FOR SUCCESS B y

B r i a n

H .

L i n k

First, I think it is important to point out success is in the eyes of the individual. What I consider to be a mark of success for me will undoubtedly be different from what you believe, but that’s okay. The more important factor is how do you see yourself when you think of being successful? Is it landing the job you’ve always dreamed of, having lots of money, or is it having the freedom to do and go anywhere your heart desires. Or maybe it is all of the above. Achieving success can truly be as easy as having clearly definable goals. After all, if you don’t have a plan for success you’ll never achieve it. Paul J. Meyers, the founder of Leadership Management International once said, “Success comes from the progressive realization of worthwhile predetermined personal goals, one after another. A basic part of knowing yourself is knowing your present status and knowing what you want to achieve”.Developing a strong sense of self-awareness is key to mapping out a path for individual success. Do you really know what you want? Do you have clearly defined goals? What steps are you prepared to take in order to achieve your goals? Every person at one time or another has had a goal for something. But where most people stumble is that their goal isn’t clearly defined. And, as some people say if it isn’t written it doesn’t exist. Written goals tend to be more significant for people. A written goal is something you’ve put thought into, you took time to write, and hopefully you’ve displayed it as a reminder somewhere prominent. So if setting goals is so important why don’t we all do it? Simply stated we were not taught as children to set goals in school so it is not a learned habit, but it can be. When you decide what your goal(s)should be, whether it is personal or professional, remember be SMART. First beSPECIFIC, your goal must be specific enough you know exactly what you want to accomplish. The more specific or detailed your goal is the easier it will be to achieve. For example, “I want to make more money” or “I want to make $10,000 more income in the next twelve months”. Both statements basically say the same thing, although one is far more specific than the other leaving no room for doubt on what you want to achieve. 3 0 | TEMECU LA TO DAY | M AY • J U N E 20 1 4

Next your goal(s) must be MEASURABLE in time and results. If you don’t have a way to measure your progress in achieving your goal how will you know you’re on track for success? This is where you want to qualify and quantify your goal in some fashion. As the minutes, days, weeks, and months pass you should be able to track your progress through measurable results that build self-confidence and momentum. Ready, set, ACTION! Do you remember the quote from the famous physicist Isaac Newton, “An object at rest stays at rest and an object in motion stays in motion…”There is so much truth in that statement. People are creatures of habit and if your habit is to not act then that is exactly what you will tend to always do, not act. But, if you are the type of person that took the old Nike slogan “Just do it!” to heart than you are more likely to take the necessary action steps needed to be successful. Remember your goal(s) must be REALISTIC to your stage in life and your ability to accomplish it. Unrealistic goals, more likely than not, are unachievable. Set your goals so that you can make small victories over the course of a given time period. For example if I wanted to loose fifty pounds of body weight I wouldn’t say, “I am going to loose fifty pounds of weight by next month.” On one hand I don’t think that is possible to accomplish in such a short period of time. But if I said, “I want to loose five pounds of body weight every month over the next year.” That’s absolutely realistic and attainable if you focus on your goal and take the appropriate actionable steps to achieve it.

Make your goal(s)TANGIBLE. You are twice as likely to stay on track when you can touch, feel, and see the fruits of all of your hard work. Tangible goals are those that allow you to enjoy all of the hard work and yes sometimes sacrifice you make to achieve success. Being able to enjoy the fruits of your labor gives you added incentive to stay on track and remain focused when times get hard and you find yourself loosing interest in finishing what you’ve started, achieving your goals. Goal setting is a powerful way for people to achieve successes they want in life. It takes clarity, commitment, and a dogged determination. The proof that goal setting really works is all around us every day. You don’t have to look too hard to see successful business people, professional athletes, and entrepreneurs who all have used goal setting to map out their strategy for success. If you are seeking positive change in your personal or professional life I challenge you to map out your road to success by setting your own SMART goals. Don’t wait for success to find you… go find it! About the Author. Brian H. Link is the Senior Managing Partner of The Fidelis Group.
