It’s me again, the German social media manager of advanc3Design. Our designer is currently training his two aides in the shop/office work, that’s why he doesn’t find the time for blogging these days. Besides, he stepped up the piece output by doubling his castings per day. So this is why you have to put up with me today. 😉
Yesterday I started reading a really interesting book. I don’t know if our designer mentioned it in a former blog post, as he read it, too. It’s a bible for everyone who wants to start something and it’s titled: “The Art of the Start” by Guy Kawasaki. So far I really love this book and I can’t wait to go on reading it tonight (I always read before I go to sleep). It’s so motivating and inspiring and it’s encouraging the reader to believe in themself and their skills. I can’t recommend the book yet, as I’ve just started reading it, but what I’ve read so far was really good.
Talking of our social media profiles, there are no big news right now. I’m still thinking about a stategy for both Facebook and Twitter. I’m happy that we gained some more Twitter followers this week. Anyway, there are little to no interactions on both Facebook and Twitter yet and that makes me a little sad. I mean, I also manage other Facebook fanpages and Twitter accounts where people love to retweet, share and like my posts. Why not on advanc3Design?
I’ve made the experience that it’s more difficult to reach Americans on Twitter and Co. than Germans. I don’t understand why, because Twitter and Facebook are American social networks. But anyhow, Germans seem to be more active when it comes to sharing, liking and retweeting. That’s at least my experience. Maybe the reason of the little interaction rate is that we haven’t started selling our products yet.
By the way, we are seriously thinking about creating an Instagram account in the near future. I personally love Instagram, so I’d welcome that. But, of course, this makes only sense when we have products to share photos of. So we first have to produce some more pieces, before we can get started on Instagram.
