Interview: Mallie Hart From Social Solutions Collective

The other day I had the pleasure of interviewing Mallie Hart about her new project Social Solutions Collective.

“When you work with a collective that can provide you with everything from unique graphics to ghost writing for your blog, your social media marketing isn’t just covered, it ROCKS!” -Social Solutions Collective


1. What is Social Solutions Collective and why did you start it?

Before I was invited to write for Steamfeed I was contemplating creating a collaborative group of my own. Knowing that a variety of content, discussion topics and ideas collectively drive true social engagement, it seemed silly not to build a group to make the curation and creation of this content and discussion something bigger and better. With that in mind I started sending out feelers, to gauge interest and to see if anyone else thought it was a good idea. I would not have continued with the project if I had received “WHAT WERE YOU THINKING” responses. I got some great initial feedback, cautionary and positive, from Robert Caruso and Kittie Walker – both Steamfeed members – and then from parties of interest and I decided it was something I wanted to take to the next level.

2. How did you decide who would be a part of the collective?

Great question. First I had to decide how we’d divvy up topic areas. I felt we should have one person covering a specific topic so that we could build a deeper understanding and delve deeper into specific social business topics. So, each member covers a niche. For example, with my long time spent in the graphic design trenches, it seemed quite fitting that my niche cover social design. Current members fill a wide variety of niches, anything from content curation to best practices for non-profits utilizing social media. The niches drive who gets asked to join the group. As the “owner” of the collective, I have the final say on who fills a niche, but all potential new collective members are discussed by the group before we even let them know we are interested in them. While someone has to take that final ownership role, we do try to make decisions in a collaborative and collective fashion.

3. What goals does the SSC have?

Our overriding goal, and, in fact, our tagline is “Social media and social business solutions collective intent on doing social right.” To take it a bit further, much like the crew at Steamfeed, we have seen and been disturbed by the shift and focus in social media toward a certain group of “experts” that don’t appear to walk the talk when it comes to engaging in the behaviors and actions that make social such a valuable part of business marketing and interaction. While we have no intent to point the finger at any one individual or action as “wrongdoing”, we do like to discuss what we call “less than social” practices and actions. We discuss them in a general sense, rather then throwing any individual or company under the bus. It’s equal parts education and entertainment, so I guess you could call us edutainers, though I don’t know if Grandma Mary has taken legal action to make term solely her own!

That being said, the second name in our title is “Solutions” and we have lofty goals for products, services and eLearning opportunities in 2013 and beyond. We think this blurb from our web site explains it quite well:

“While we all run our own businesses, some of us more than one, we understand that in the fast-paced, ever changing world of social media you don’t want to work with a jack of all trades, master of none. Sure, each member of our collective excels in a multitude of social situations. But, we also know we all have our “best” skills. By coming together, each of us with a different “best skill”, we can each offer real solutions that can be rolled up into one rocking package.”

4. Is the SSC a girl’s club only?

Ha ha! While it has turned out that way, that wasn’t our initial intent. If you ask anyone who knows me, they’ll tell you I’m not particularly interested in the “Go GIRL Power” movement. Initial salvos regarding interest in the collective were sent to an equal number of men and women. For whatever reasons, none of the men gelled or made the connection that makes our group really click. As we continued to move forward we found that our style of communication and decision making appealed to most of the women, but fewer to the men. So, it sort of turned into a group of women with the intent to discuss and share ideas in our bid to showcase social done right. Our following, which is growing in a slow and steady fashion, is a very nice mixture of men and women. We have some growth goals and plans for 2013 which we hope will continue to appeal to a wide audience. We also have an interview series planned (so it’s quite funny I’m your first interview), and we have as many males on our want list as we do females, perhaps more!

5. Is there anything else you would like the SteamFeed community to know about the SSC?

I put this question to the group members, as their opinions – both collectively and individually – matter very much. We support and help each other, as well as our fans and followers, by sharing knowledge, tools, tips and more, and by answering questions posed by the group and by those same fans and followers. Though we do work together as a collective, we each have our own unique ideas and voice, which allows us to look at every angle before we answer a question, allowing for understanding of the gray areas that are so much a part of social business. We realize there are no tried and true, this is black and this is white, solutions or answers that fit every unique social question or issue. We are a diverse group, though we are all women. We are young and not so young. Some members are new to the entrepreneur scene while others are more seasoned. We span the United States and even have a voice from Canada. So we bring unique perspective to each niche, to each question we are asked and to each idea we generate. Then we collectively turn our unique ideas and understanding into a supportive and savvy group effort or answer.

If you could start over with your business, what would you do differently?

Are you thinking about starting a business or have you recently started a business? You may want to take a look at the following answers from our SteamFeed authors for some tips and advice.

Here is the question we asked some of our authors: If you could start over with your business, what would you do differently?

 

Albert Qian (@albertqian):

If I could start over with my business, I would probably be doing JUST my business instead of my 9-5 job.

 

Randy Bowden (@bowden2bowden):

I would go all-in with more confidence in myself and my abilities and not worry about failing! I already knew how to fail, doing nothing or doing something stupid because of my fear. So I would figure out exactly what I need to ensure success and go after it with greater self-assurance in my ability! Believe in success.

 

Keri Jaehnig (@connectyou):

My business has evolved from where I was in the non-profit sector, honing in on demand and what was working, to where my business is now – Online marketing for business brands, non-profits, and political candidates. What I did then has gotten me to where I am now, so no — I would not change that. If I were to do anything differently, I would have started blogging sooner. And I recommend to any small business owner not to delay in launching their blog!

 

James Oliver, Jr.(@jamesoliverjr):

Have a capable, technically-oriented, founding partner.

 

Gerry Michaels (@gettysburggerry):

I would have started sooner and definitely kept my blinders on, trusted in myself more from the begining.  If what you are doing is working, don’t stop doing it because someone who thinks they know it all tells you you are “doing it wrong.”  You know YOU best, and if what you are doing is working, build off of it. It is smart to listen to advice from others, but it is smarter to think that advice through and be sure it works within the methods that you employ. In short, don’t be afraid to believe in yourself. I lost time growing my business by trying to mold my business to someone else’s idea of what my business should be.

 

Derrick Jones (@djoneslucid)

Surround myself with more advisors and get a better understanding of the mental game. The mental game is an aspect of entrepreneurship that is not talked about enough. That is why I spend considerable time talking about it in my book.

My Biggest Challenge in Marketing!

We’re back with another question for our SteamFeed authors – This time we’re discussing challenges in marketing:

As a small business owner, what is your biggest challenge in marketing, and how do you overcome it?

 

Randy Bowden (@bowden2bowden)

 

Defining Target Markets: If you want to be successful with you’re marketing you must have a clear idea of your target market, who are they and where can you find them. Develop a profile of who your ideal customer is, include everything you can gather on them and write it down. With a concept of your ideal customer you can prepare a personalized and relevant marketing message to the intended recipients. Each time you are developing or writing promotional messages refer to the profile and it will guide you in your efforts to communicate more effectively with your target market.

 

David Schwartz (@1ad_dad)

As a small business owner you are expected to wear many different hats – let’s be honest too many different hats. All of the necessary skills to run a successful business are extreme in their nature. For instance, if you opened a restaurant your expertise might be as a chef and so you would understand the back of the house operations. Those skills are very important to a restaurant operator but so is the front of the house, which includes hiring and training the staff to name just a few. Now, how about marketing?

First thing first, set a marketing budget for the first 12-18 months. In my opinion, the biggest challenge in marketing for a small business owner is to understand how to set a marketing budget. Once that budget is set, be sure to understand that you need to spread those dollars out throughout the year. Don’t jump at every offer that walks in the door. Believe me, there will be plenty. Try to avoid long-term commitments. Far too often small business owners spend the majority of their marketing budget in the first 3 months upon opening. Make the right investments, start with CMS (Content Management System) website that is Search Engine Optimized and mobile friendly. Your website should be the hub of all your marketing activity, traffic from traditional or digital communication should all funnel through your site. Keep in mind, a well thought out budget along with a marketing plan greatly increase the chances that your marketing dollars will be spent more effectively.

For more ideas on how to get started, see this post “Stop Spending Without a Strategy“ that includes 10 Basic Steps to get you started with a marketing plan.

Megan Harris (@MHarrisWriter)

My biggest challenge is marketing myself locally and in person. I have a number of great clients, but the majority are in other cities and states. Sometimes, I even work with folks in other countries! I am not a very outgoing person, and marketing in person is difficult for me.

To challenge myself to do it more, I attended a business expo in my city this week and am trying to attend more events to meet people. I’ve made a number of connections via social media and I’m finding ways to meet more people. I think this will help me find more leads, meet other folks and get out of my shell.

Nice Guys Finish First in Social Media

The way people interact has changed dramatically ever since social media has been a part of business.

It’s 2005…

Social Media NetworkingWe just met and it’s finally my turn to speak but you keep on nodding your head and saying “yup” over and over again while looking in every direction but mine. You have no idea what I’m saying because you’re not listening to me. You and your ego had a good run but the times are changing my friend…

2012 – The World Has Changed. Enter Social Media.

No longer can one spew nonsense and expect to build quality relationships. You can no longer be a self-promoter – social media simply doesn’t work that way. If you’re not engaging with people in a positive manner you will probably be unfollowed by many on a daily basis. People appreciate manners and common courtesy online. Here are a few things you could do to polish up your online manners:

Engage

It takes time and commitment, but if you engage with your followers and even reach out to new people on a regular basis, your network will grow and rise in value. If people tweet at you, comment on your blog, or post on your Facebook page, you need to take the time to respond to them. Being nice goes a long way. These people will become some of your biggest supporters in the future.

Be Helpful

The more you give in social media, the more you will receive down the road. Go out of your way to help people. People remember these moments, especially when they’re just starting out.

Be Personal

It’s simple but true – let people get to know the real you. Social media is all about sharing and listening. You don’t have to be all business all the time. You can maintain your brand while sharing tidbits of your personal life. Just make sure you keep it clean (don’t share pictures or comments you wouldn’t share with your Grandma).

Be Kind & Genuine

You’re no longer in competition with just the person down the street. Your competition is always one click away from setting up shop. Separate yourself by going above and beyond, which includes being kind on a day to day basis. Courtesy goes a long way.

The bottom line is if you take the time to consistently care about others, your reputation and network will reflect that over time.

 

Social Media Tips For Small Business Owners

We asked some of the SteamFeed authors to answer the following question: If you could give one or two pieces of advice to a small business owner who just signed up for their first social media account today, what would it be?

Here’s what they answered:

 

Carrie Keenan (@carrieatthill):

1. Learn a bit about the “rules and norms” of the social channel you are joining. (No hashtags or #FF on Facebook etc). Once you have an idea – jump in!

2. Take the time to grow & nurture relationships with people. Don’t use social media as a billboard, it is about the people. Find and build your community.

 

Mallie Hart (@themediabarista):

Begin as you hope to continue. It’s easy to go gangbusters as you’re starting out, but it can be hard to maintain the momentum. Social marketing is a marathon, not a sprint. Pacing yourself is key to success, as it’s easy to get burnt out. Successful social presence and sharing requires research, reading and response. Only have time to research and read the content that will become one or two good posts per day, as well as carve out the time to respond to any questions or comments those posts might create? That’s fine, as long as you can maintain that going forward.

 

“Engage but don’t overdo it! Be genuine!”

 

Albert Qian (@albertqian):

1. Figure out what your goals are. Nothing is worse than being on social media without a goal.

2. Make time to engage with your audience. Audience is not just your customers through the door, but also those whom talk to you online! You can miss valuable opportunities by not speaking to your online audience.

 

Keri Jaehnig (@connectyou):

1.  Many people hop onto social media and feel like, “Okay, now, what do I do with this digital thing?”  If you boil it down, social media is just the opportunity to put “old time” business and customer service tactics back into place via modern technology.  We’re no longer just websites online.  You can put a face to your brand, and offer more personal attention than we have been used to doing for a number of years.  We can just reach more people with the power of the social platforms and the way they work.

REMEMBER: It’s not about you — It’s about them.  If you want people to react to your social media efforts, find a way to put your fans and followers in the spotlight; find a way to feature your customer.  If all of your messaging is broadcasting sales & marketing about your brand, those you are trying to attract will tune you out.

2. Resist the temptation to click those buttons and connect your Facebook and Twitter.  While you’ll think you would be saving time by posting to both at the same time, each network is different.  Facebook users don’t typically take to “Twitter-ese.”  And Twitter users don’t typically click on Facebook links in their tweet stream.  Find other ways of creating efficiency and appreciate each network for it’s unique ability to forward your brand.

 

David Schwartz (@brand_education):

The first thing that I would do is congratulate the small business owner on jumping into the exciting world of social media. I would encourage them to take time to learn the format, depending upon the social network, the communication can feel like learning a foreign language. Don’t get discouraged, social media success does not come over night, remember it is a marathon not a sprint.
Once they familiarize themselves with the medium, strategize a plan of attack. How do they want to use the social network?
  • Customer Service
  • Relationship Building
  • Education
  • Marketing
  • Build Awareness

Once they create a plan; set goals, track growth and activity. Analyze the results and re-set goals and adjust the strategy. Be flexible, have fun and engage with the most wonderful vehicle created for company and customer interaction.

 

Daniel Hebert (@danielghebert):

1. Make sure that your profile is 100 percent complete. Update your descriptions/bio, add links to your website, update your profile pictures, etc. Make sure that your audience knows exactly who you are, and what you do. This will make it a lot easier for your fans to engage with you.

2. Protect your brand identity throughout all platforms. Reserve your brand name on different social networks (even if you’re not necessarily using it). Use a tool like KnowEm to quickly check if your brand name is available on all of the popular networks.
