  1. Excellent explanation on knowing your social circles and how to use them to the best of your advantage. Thanks for sharing. Very important to be active in these circles to benefit you.

  2. Excellent timing Jacs! I have spent much of 2015 in development mode so I will be the first to admit I’d sorely neglected growing my sphere of influence, but I’ve already made up my mind that will change in 2016. I deferred several year end projects and am spending these last days preparing to “Explode Out” next year! Thanks for the tips and inspiration.

    1. Happy New Year to you Marty <3
      Thank you for your kind words, a new year is a great time to make a new social plan, and just a little every day can build up to a great explosion!

  3. Facebook takes up most of my social time because I find it hard to develop the same sort of relationships on other channels. Consistently posting and visiting others takes up a good amount of time as it is.

    Twitter with it’s word limits in particular. Any interaction and engagement there tends to come from those I know from Facebook.

    There’s a sub niche that I’m trying to build up but as yet I haven’t really reached outside my current circle. I need to find my social circle of influence for that. Thank you for the reminder.

    1. Hi Sue,

      yes, it does take time developing relationships, but it’s good to have a routine to stretch those circles, whichever sites you use or very little progress gets made, and any business needs new eyes!

      Interesting to hear of your sub niche.. Good Luck!

  5. Hi Jacs,

    I have your report but I haven’t put it into action yet. I’ve been thinking about the people that I need to look for and while I love all of my FB friends, I know I have to venture out to meet new people with my same interests, just like you do and everyone else.

    Not leaving PAC for anything but expanding my reach. Thanks for your report.

    1. Hi Monna,

      Lol! It can be a gradual process, site by site… but it takes purpose and continuity behind what you are doing. Do give me a shout if you come across any points you would like to discuss from the report.

      Pleased to see PAC has now entered the Twitter arena, you are both doing a Fantastic Job with PAC, and the site is growing from your care and nurturing… I can’t see you leaving 😉

  6. Hi, jacs

    Love this post <3. I agree with you that the currency of Social media is the "Share".

    Add to the second part of equation is "engagement". This part is harder for me to manage than the "sharing" part.I am working to increase the rate of engagement. I am expecting my result will be better as time go by.

    Have a successful weekend ahead@

    Stella Chiu

    1. Hi Stella,

      Yes the result of our engagement is the comment and the share, both shows we hit the nail on the head! Obviously there are steps to be taken to get engagement and I am working lessons around this in my group, so pop in and ‘engage’ by asking questions or for help if you need it on any post.

      Have The Best 2016 😀

  7. Hello Jacs, What a great question? Are You Neglecting Your Social Circle Of Influence?well I don’t think that I have, This was really the first year that I took consistent action on a few of the different social media sites that you have mentioned here.

    I really have not received as much engagement as I thought I would but I know I am being watched… LOL

    I have people all the time coming to me and letting me know they are there even though they don’t say anything..

    Loved your Post especially this one Explode OUT ~ Attract IN

    Thanks for sharing

    Thanks in advance.. Looking forward to it…

    1. Hi Chery,

      thanks for your fab reply… I really appreciate that you thought about the question I asked and reflected on your activity and results from last year. Just shows you are taking your marketing seriously.

      There are always watchers!! Isn’t that interesting.

      Do hope you pick up a few tips from the report 😀

      Happy New Year!!

  8. Hello Jacs,
    My blog is pretty new so I have never thought on Social much but I think this can be the one of the biggest mistake a blogger can make by neglecting Social sites.

    I think creating a account on all top social sites and checking it daily is worth for long run.

    Thanks for bringing light to the topic, it ultimately benefited me, the first thing I need to do is activating any good social sharing plugin.

    Back to you!! 🙂

    1. Hi Ashok,

      Great that your blog is up and running, but you do need to add social buttons so people can share your content… I use flare (the free version) which you can find here http://filament.io/flare but there are many available.

      Social Media is a great asset to your marketing, but you do need a plan for results, and you do need to engage in some places with your audience.

      Thanks so much for your visit… have a Happy New Year 😀

  9. Hey Jacs,

    I’m looking forward to reading more in this series as I know it’s something I should be doing more of.

    I enjoy blog commenting within PACS – and of course as PACS expands we meet more people there – but I know there are other places I should be posting to meet more like-minded people.

    It’s the time factor of course – but hopefully you’ll be including some tips to help us with that.

    Look forward to reading more, Joy

    1. Hi Joy,

      Many thanks for commenting! It turned up safely 🙂

      Lol, time is always an issue! Finding those like minded people has to be done, you are in my group and we are now moving to content based on through the challenges we have online with sponsoring and engaging others, as well as blog sharing etc… so that is a start!

      I’m right there, and churning out the lessons 😉

  10. Jacs,

    I have a lot of followers on many social media sites. When I create a blog post or find an interesting image or meme, I often share it across many platforms. But it seems to me that Facebook is the easiest and friendliest. I have several pages and a few groups. And the engagement varies. But then I am sometimes surprised and delighted as when I changed my Facebook Timeline image and got from 80 – 100 warm and caring comments from friends I have known over the years. That inspired me to want to share more consistently because I realized that people are watching, even if they don’t always engage.

    Warmly,

    Dr. Erica

    1. Hi Dr Erica,

      It is true that many people are watchers… and it takes something that resonates or touches them emotionally before they will comment. Also, once a post has some comments, even more people react to it!

      Engagement is the key, and it takes time, effort and the right posts to create this from a group. I feel it is better to have 1 group focused on your business and drive all traffic back to that on other platforms. Of course, that is not always easy when you have several interests, businesses or products. It is hard to find the time to manage many pages and groups!

      Your strategy of course depends on what you wish to attract and achieve, and it seems you have lots of watchers… engaging them more would be a productive challenge 🙂

      Thank you for all the interesting information you have shared in response,

      ~ Jacs

  11. This is an excellent orientation to Social Media, Jacs.

    You’re so right about developing a strategy and keeping it simple. It’s better to do something really simple like one Facebook post a day, than to do something very elaborate that you can’t keep up with.

    Your followers are looking to identity your brand, and they want to see you contributing consistently. If you can increase that presence over time, all the better. But to begin with, just do something, do it consistently and do it strategically.

    1. Thank you David for your valuable comment.

      Like you say, it is important that people recognise your brand so using at least one platform with a strategy will start, or reinforce this process.

      You summed it up beautifully 🙂

  12. Hi Jacs Henderson mam, wonderful information its very important for bloggers to build social circles. I have different social network accounts but time is very less to get engage with any network.I will follow this post. Thanks for sharing this knowledge.

    1. Hi Sazia,

      thanks for your comment, and yes I agree time is short! Social media is not a part of everyone’s business plan… but it is often worth setting a routine up for some free marketing.

      I wish you a successful 2016 😀

      ~ Jacs

  13. Thanks Jacs for an article on Social skills from the Social Queen!

    I know for me on Social media my biggest problems are not having a clear plan or a clear strategy, so I just do something, anything when I think of it.

    I finally got really clear about what I wanted to do in my life when I grow up so now I can clarify my social strategy to better achieve those goals.

    May 2016 be your very best year yet

    Mary

    1. Hi Mary,

      You did make me smile, and I am so happy you know what you want to be when you grow up!! Me too, and that does make it easier to produce a strategy for social media, and indeed other aspects of the plan… and there are many!!

      I wish you Your Best Year EVER in 2016 😀

  14. Hi Jacs,
    Thank you for this. It has certainly caused me to stop and think about the questions you have asked, and yes, they are worthwhile questions. As we go along our merry ways on a daily basis, we just do things without any thought behind them probably because it is sexy and fashionable to do them. You certainly have opened my eyes to many social marketing actives that I have taken for granted and some that I do not even pay much attention and worse yet some still to be done.

    I certainly look forward to the follow up to this post.
    With all good wishes.
    Vinton

    1. Hi Vinton,

      Thank you for sharing all those insights you picked up from the post. It is true, and so easy to carry on doily without thinking about what results we are creating, and are they what we need to grow our business. A strategy is essential, and of course that needs to be actioned and revised until successful.

      I appreciate your thoughts a great deal 😀

  15. Hi Jacs,

    This is a great incentive for us to put our finger on the Explode Out button. Expand our circles of influence, and there’s no better way to do it than with a sharp social media plan of action. Develop your social media rhythm and expand your influence.

    -Donna

  16. I love ‘explode out, attract in’. Social media does feel like an explosion and we can never really know who we have an impact on with our posts. It’s a very powerful platform for connections.

    Enjoy the journey!
