What’s Your Klout?

October 19th, 2010 by alex | No Comments | Filed in social media

Last week Jamie signed me up for Klout – an online tool that helps you understand your online influence and reach through social media platforms like Twitter and Facebook.  By signing up and going through some simple steps Klout will do an analysis of your social media accounts (i.e: your tweets, re-tweets, who you follow, comments posted by you or others on facebook, clicks, likes etc..)  and will generate an analysis in the forms of a Klout Summary – a measurement of your overall online influence.  At first I was a little skeptical (may have even rolled my eyes when Jamie first told me he signed up for this – will this really be all that helpful?) but I will totally admit that I was wrong with a capital W.  All of the information that Klout generated was extremely insightful in regards to what I am currently doing on FB and Twitter and what we can do to make it even better!  I would highly recommend this app to anyone who has a facebook fan page and/or twitter account for their company, brand or blog – it’s tres insightful for the world of social media!  Go ahead and give Klout a try at then come back here and tell me what you think!

Above is an example of one of the measures Klout produces:  The “Influence Matrix”.  I think this is pretty cool because it shows who you are being influenced by – and also who YOU are influencing through your social media activity.  As you can see RIU PR Girl is  classified under the “explorer” category – over time and with some additional activity I hope to move up to some of the more active categories – sharing/creating.

By the way if you aren’t following me yet on Twitter – do so today @ The Room It Up PR Girl and also be sure to like our official Room It Up Facebook Fan Page!

Location, Location, Location!

September 10th, 2010 by alex | 1 Comment | Filed in social media

Last week I put the Room It Up Corporate HQ on the map – the Facebook map that is!  While we don’t get a lot of foot traffic here in our Stuart, FL offices it got me to thinking about how these new location based platforms (i.e:Facebook and FourSquare) could be great for our Small Business retail partners.  Alas, I bring to you: Social Media Friday: All about location!  Consider this a mini introduction into all things location social media based.

(example of the room it up corporate hq on facebook)

If you have a retail storefront you should make sure that your business has a complete profile on Facebook, FourSquare and Yelp! This will enable your customers to “check-in” at your storefront.  Once someone has checked-in this will allow them to post comments, tips etc.. about your business.  As a bonus everytime a user checks in this will also show up on their various networks, such as Facebook and Twitter – giving even more exposure for your business!  By having these profiles open to the public you will not only be able to see how many people are checking in, but it will also allow you to see the comments, tips, etc.. that people are posting about your business.  This is a great way to get instant feedback and will give you an opportunity to both market directly to these users and also adjust your practices based on the feedback you are receiving.  These profiles are super easy to set up and take minimal time!

You can also have a lot of fun with these location based platforms.  For instance in FourSquare – users have the ability to become the “Mayor” of an establishment based on the number of times you have checked in at a given place.  I have seen before where places have offered “Mayor-only” discounts and promotions.  I also recently came across this article about the 5 new ways small businesses can offer location-based deals which is definitely worth checking out!  You can learn more about these sites and social media in general from one of my favorite websites, – i encourage you to visit the site and learn more about social media!  Feel free to post comments with any questions you might have to this posting and I’d be happy to help!  -Alex

Saying yes to social media

September 17th, 2009 by alex | No Comments | Filed in General

Picture 2

Here at Room It Up we try to stay on the “cutting edge” of things, whether it be introducing new fashion trends in our prints, designing user friendly e-catalogs, creating a great e-commerce website, etc… Our newest venture to add to our list is our Social Media presence.  We realize the power that Social Media has in regards to business and how it is starting to shape the way that consumers view products, companies and personalities on the internet.  Anyone who is anyone has a Facebook, MySpace or LinkedIn account right?  With all of the companies out there it is becoming more important than ever for your business to have a presence on these networks and become easily accessible for everyday consumers to see you, or you might get missed!

Today an article about Facebook on Mashable: The Social Media Guide caught my eye (and sparked the idea for this post!).  It reported that people spend approximately 3x more time on Facebook than other popular websites like Google.  What does that mean for us?  I think it means that consumers are looking to connect to people and companies on a more personalized level.  We, at Room It Up, have a presence on 3 of the largest social networks: Twitter, Facebook & LinkedIn, as well as this blog you are reading right now!  We are consistently updating our network profiles in an effort to keep our presence up to date and informative.  We find these networks to be great avenues to give and receive feedback about our line and customer service, as well as great places to disseminate quick information and promotions to our “fans” and “followers”.  We can’t wait to see our presence grow even bigger as our brand begins to expand in popularity.  In an effort to grow our presence, we recently added the social media buttons to the bottom right hand side of our screen on our websites to make it easier for consumers and retailers to find us on these networks.

Do you own your own retail business and have you created a presence on the social media websites?  I would love to hear your thoughts and what you think works and what doesn’t work in regards to these social media outlets.
