Learning, using and growing are the key elements that differentiate The S.M.A.R.T. Group from
conventional business networking groups. Instead of going for “pseudo” leads/referrals and “pretend’ relations, this group chose a completely different mission:
The focus is on business education for the 21st century, including cutting edge social media techniques and strategic business tools. The goal is to learn how to build your business while making meaningful connections within the business community.
The S.M.A.R.T. Group representatives are:
Dale Dillon Lips (@dillonadvisory): a business strategist for start-ups, new product lines, business acquisitions and work-outs
Anthony Ryan (@TheAnthonyRyan): an
entrepreneur, speaker, teacher, social Media Evangelist and more
Dale’s Presentation: “How Business Strategy Dictates Social Media Strategy?”
Continuing on the group’s educational emphasis, Dale gave an in-depth presentation on some key business objectives that social media is mostly leveraged for:
Branding & Awareness
Becoming an industry leader and building the expert reputation
Interestingly, she presented examples of Twitter profiles that matches the above objectives and used Garious Twitter profile as a prospecting example.
