Social Media Job Week 1 InsideView

Starting a new job is generally a semi-stressful time. New office, new people, new responsibilities and with so much newness that can be enough to give the brain a cramp. First I had to get used to the drive which I thought was going to be the hardest part. Turns out the drive doesn’t bother me at all, parking is easy and really the only difficult part (if there is one) is that I have to set an alarm to get out of here on time to get the boy.

Getting up to speed on the social media needs of the company hasn’t been difficult. I did some of the homework before officially starting and it was mainly about jumping with both feet and starting to engage with the community. We are focusing on the big 3 social media channels; Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn. YouTube is in the works but I’m still not sure people want to see my mug in HD.

The office has a cool vibe in it. It’s an open office, so no offices or cubes. There is some sense of privacy with short walls along the desks. (I’ll have pics soon) It’s nice just being able to look across the office to see if someone is free if I have a quesion and at the moment I have a ton of them. The group is nice and for my first office job in 3 years this is a welcome environment.

I’m working on a Social Media Primer that I’m going to give to the sales team next week so they can have a better idea of what my plan is and how they can be a part of the process of getting InsideView seen by as many people as possible. (more on that later)

Other than updating Facebook and Twitter on a regular basis, I am also going to start working on contributing articles on other sites/blogs that we are associated with as well as providing comments and answers on sites. You can probably already see the Twitter stream in my sidebar that has become flooded with InsideView news. The most popular piece of content getting passed around the Twitterverse is a infographic on Social Media in B2B we produced.

    Just found your blog. I’lll be following your journey with interest, especially as I’ve just gone self employed to do very similar work for businesses in the UK.
    Couldn’t agree more about YouTube (I mean misgivings about appearing in person, not that you don’t have the face for it 😉 ) – I’ve found that tapping up the sales or product director works really well as they’re often very happy to appear on camera!
    best, Kate
