The Secret To MY Success
I am very excited have won the PTPA award and also to be the 2010 SavvyMom Mom Entrepreneur of the year award winner. When I started my business I hadn’t expected it to reach the size that it has in such a short period of time. My main goal with my business was to provide me with a way to stay at home with my children. It has since grown to another passion of mine. I absolutely love what I do and am happy to see the growth that this ‘baby’ of mine has had over the years.
I have discovered the value in social media as a mom entrepreneur. My first social media find was You Tube. I was able to make videos and post them which quickly made me one of the experts in the filed of baby sign language. Millions of people have literally watched my videos and seen the name My Smart Hands associated with baby sign language. My first video has had over 2.7 million view, my total upload views is over 8 million and I am in the top 50 most viewed Canadian uploaders on You Tube. Then along came Facebook, I started a group and this continued with my interaction with other people that are interested in signing with children. Then finally came Twitter, I have been slow at getting on to Twitter but have quickly realized the networking it provides.
As an entrepreneur it is imperative that you take advantage of these social tools available to you. See how you can utilize those tools to help grow your business. Remember when you are using these outlets that they aren’t for ‘selling’ your products but for building relationships. You’ll
build relationships in your online community of your potential customers or with other entrepreneurs that will happily support you and your brand if they have a sense of familiarity with you.
I am so honored to have received two amazing awards back to back. As a Mom entrepreneur I am excited for my hard work to be recognized by both the people who voted for me; and the evaluators that bestowed the PTPA award on my baby sign language program.
