July 2010 Dance Studio Life Magazine

Article: "Friends, Fans, & Followers"

Christina Hall, author, wrote a nice 4 page article introducing Rhee Gold readers to social networking media outlets and what they can do for you. I won’t reproduce it here for obvious reasons but here’s a brief play-by-play. [Update 7-15-10: original article here]

 

She leads off with some Facebook material, which as we know has more than 400 MILLION active users to date, and how it can work for your studio. She interviews a few dance studio owners with a Facebook presence about their experience so far. They’ve both had different experiences but both positive. The studios share a few tips they’ve learned about dealing with social networks like Twitter, Facebook & YouTube.

Next, she has a few quotes from Yours Truly on to monitor negative comments about you and your studio online without doing any extra work on your part.

The article goes into video hosting social sites like YouTube and the one we use on the RDDW system, Blip.tv. Kids & parents LOVE seeing themselves online and it can really do wonders if you work it right. She quote another studio owner who using for good measure.

The article wraps up talking about the RDDW system, how we build social media right into it and how social media can work for your studio. We talk a little bit how to participate in these various social media networks without it being a time sink.

In my opinion, really, it’s just how people are communicating these days and you just HAVE to be there or you’re missing out.

Great little article getting people used to social media with interspersed tips from real world studio owners. All in all, yet another great piece of writing from this magazine. You’re already a subscriber, right?

Facebook has some really big stats going on and it’s only getting bigger.
