You Sing the Perfect Song and I'll Make the Noise...

You sing the perfect song... and I'll make the noise.

As adults, our willingness to jump right into something new is often held with a somewhat skeptic eye. We look before we leap. We make a lot of decisions very quickly when confronted with a new opportunity. Most of them based on why we shouldn't. There in lies our challenge.

Social Media is all about our willingness to participate. It's about joining in online communities, making conversation, opening up and sharing. Bringing value, building trust, and paying forward.

Mandalynn... Social Networker par excellence


I had the privilege of meeting Mandalynn for the first time this past Saturday, October 11, 2009. She's one of the best Social Networking Masters I've encountered in a long time.

Mandalynn waltzes into my condo about 7:00 PM and makes my aquaintance. Asks 50+ questions and immediately notices I have a piano, three guitars, three computers, and a whole lot of other interesting stuff for a 3 going on 4 year old.
We go from one thing to another throughout the condo and investigate absolutely everything.

Suddenly she declares, "it's music time!" We improvise at the piano for awhile and take turns singing and playing. She's fascinated with my son Jeff playing the guitar and wants to play. It cracks me up because the guitar is as tall as she is.

Mandalynn sits on the floor holding it like a sitar and strums the open strings with a pick. We sing a rousting round of: The itsy-bitsy spider Climbed up the water spout... None of us adults could remember all the lyrics.

"You sing the perfect song
and I'll make the noise."

Is that not a perfect demonstration of Social Media Marketing or what?

Jump right in, have no fear, and take it on. No worries about doing it wrong, no fear of making mistakes, and no concerns if you're doing it right. Just total enthusiastic participation with joy, transparency, and authority! "Everyone's enrolled, of course!"

Right on, "You sing the perfect song, and I'll make the noise!"

I couldn't agree more with that! If you just go out there and be yourself, you will make friends, it is just like life. Have no fear, meet new people and smile while you are doing it and don't care what others think of you.
