@ginidietrich great list! It's sad that most brands aren't currently practicing these steps now. You took everything in my brain and laid it out nicely on paper. : )

@yvettepistorio great article! I started the same way as you so you're not alone. But now that we know how to do social media strategy and report on our success it blows my mind when clients don't want help doing just that. Some of my "really" big clients don't want to track their marketing campaigns to direct sales, etc. they just care about increasing page likes.
Do you have any advice on how I can make them see the importance of strategy & results?

@ginidietrich Yes, Yes I am.

@ginidietrich I'm with you I use WordPress, that way I can access my drafts at anytime and edit them when I have the time and then boom I have a blog post. I use email, reminders or notes on my iPhone for jotting down ideas so I don't forget. I would forget a notebook. : )
Gini I agree with all 12 points, 100%. I do have a quick question though, if you don't mind. If your blog didn't have any traffic before you started managing it and it now has a lot of traffic, the percentage of growth is huge but that's expected. Is there another number to look at for the wow factor? Monthly visits?

@ginidietrich Yeah you can guess, I'll text you, no DMs.

Thank you @ginidietrich you just solidified a decision I have been negotiating for the last several months. This is exactly what I needed, a reminder of what is really important and why my decision is the best decision for me.
This made my day, and i needed it with my mind focused on Boston. Thank you. @creativeoncall you should get your own day of the week, #WiseWednesday?! Just saying. : )

@yvettepistorio I'm right there with you! I worked remotely for a year and it was the best thing I ever did. I did work more hours, I was much more productive cause I wasn't always getting interrupted by co-workers and I had a much better work/life balance.
Thanks for this cause I was just debating this with my boss an hour ago!

@ginidietrich @RebeccaTodd I promise that I do actually care. : )
@RebeccaTodd I'm not sure that I understand your comment : )
@ginidietrich I fight this battle every day. I've recently brought in 2 clients from the relationships I've built with them, that's all, just acting like I care and checking in and trying to help them solve their everyday problems. Not pitching, not cold calling, it was all done through email, Twitter and Facebook. I hope this article will help me cause I have no other ideas.
@ginidietrich Gini it will, the FTP section is exactly what I'm looking for!

Thank you, thank you, thank you Lindsay! I am very excited for this webinar, if it's anything like the Google Analytics webinar it's going to be "off the chain." : )
@Shonali you nailed it, I can't think of anything that you didn't mention. One thing I do preach is that your tweets should mirror your bio, somewhat. It's annoying to me when I follow someone because of their bio but they never tweet any information that relates to why I followed them. Thanks for the list!

@ginidietrich I was using Facebook Video chat to talk to my boss daily when I work remotely from Maine, but I just switched to Skype and I stay logged on all day so he can call at anytime. We also text each other with quick questions or if we need something.
I think you can get as much done working remotely as when you're in the office, I get more done when I work remotely. Although, I believe the company needs to be set up for it. When I worked at WIN Home Inspection we all worked remotely and it worked really well cause we were set up for it, we used Voice over Internet phones, instant messenger to chat quickly with each other and we stuck to the meetings we scheduled.
On another note, I did miss having co-workers to chat with. I solved that problem by attending multiple networking events each week and going to learning seminars.
I applaud you for trusting your employees to get their job done when they're not sitting next to you.
