Idea Girl Media collaborates with Smart Boy Designs on social mediaWhat’s the value of personally connecting on social media?

I hope you’ve had the exciting experience of walking away from an introduction thinking, “I’m so glad I met that person!”

It has been my distinct privilege to meet and collaborate with Christian Hollingsworth of Smart Boy Designs…

An Incredible Introduction

We first became acquainted through Triberr.  There, we had mutual friends, and Christian and I are now both part of a small handful of groups of like minded individuals sharing interests centered on social media, internet marketing, and business leadership.

Initially I was amazed that this young guy had such an established online network.  He is only 20 and has more tan 66,000 Twitter followers!

Visiting his blog, I instantly noticed multiple interactions for each post.  So, I gladly joined in the conversation and also subscribed to comments for the post where I commented.  Very soon my email box was flooded others’ contributions.

WOW – What a thriving online community Christian has created!

A short list of some of his other accomplishments:

  • Valedictorian of his high school class.
  • Several leadership awards.
  • Eagle Scout.
  • Responsible for events with more than 20,000 participants.

Christian Hollingsworth Knows His Stuff

At Smart Boy Designs, his tagline is, “Make money online while changing lives.”

His audience is entrepreneurs, solopreneurs — small business owners.

Christian walks the talk!

Having already owned and operated one of the world’s largest dog sporting magazines and online shopping carts, he teaches others how to make the most of their wishes and talents at his website.

It’s no wonder I’m talking about the VP of Social Media for RTO Investors, Seven Seas Industries & Long Ravine Resorts.

Through his blog posts, and conversation, Christian has taught me a thing or two!!

Socially Engaging

Wherever I see Christian online, others regard him well and invite him to take on key roles.

So, I invited him to “guest-star” on my Facebook Page just last week…

My purpose was to bring Christian some new attention, a new audience.  He jumped right in and went after getting to know everyone personally. His positive nature and desire to know everyone for who they are is just contagious.

I believe these two attributes are Christian’s personal asset, and the reason his social networks are so strong!

Interestingly enough, I might have gotten more from the interaction than he did – Christian brought with him over 100 new fans to my page, and some that were already fans made their presence known with a comment or a like for the first time.  🙂
