So you want to learn about Social Media Growth?  Well you have come to the right place!

Let me start by telling you a little bit about me.  My name is Blair Kunkel and I have been an active player in the social media game for quite some time now.  See my influence here. Along my journey I have learned MANY different tips, techniques, tricks, and helpful hints for building and gaining a larger audience within numerous social networks.  I would like to pass what I know on to you!

I created this blog as a place for you to come and learn more about building your very own audience or network and why it should be of high importance to you and your online experience.

These days, just about everyone now has a Facebook page and/or a Twitter account but do you think that is all you need? NO WAY! I mean, sure it is a great start but if you really want to grow your network it will take so much more than that. One great way to expand your network is to create your very own Google Plus(G+) profile and start adding people to your created "circles".  I myself use Google + quite often to connect with my friends, colleagues, and other people who share the same interests as me. The best part about it is you can create a circle for a specific purpose. Google plus is also a great place to promote your new content.

You might be asking, what do you mean by content? Well, content can be anything such as pictures, videos, books, music, or even a blog page like this one.  I found that creating and uploading videos on YouTube is a very smart way to get your "content" seen by a larger audience.  Each time I upload a new video, I usually receive several great comments from people from all over the world. I even get several new subscribers which always makes you feel like you have accomplished something.  So how are comments and subscribers important? They are extremely important actually.  ANY new connection you make on YouTube will benefit you greatly. Trust me. No matter how many comments or subscribers I get I ALWAYS reply back to them. By doing just that, you will earn a great deal of respect from them because most are so used to people not ever replying back to them.  When you do that, they will feel that they have connected with you and they may even decide to follow or subscribe to your content on other sites as well.  I will write more about YouTube in future posts.
This post is ONLY the tip of the iceberg! There will be tons more posts coming up. Please follow/subscribe to my blog so you get notified of new posts which will be coming soon with more detail.
