Social Media Experiment Progress Report
It’s been about 6 weeks since returning from Vegas where I conducted a social media experiment. I wore a T-shirt promoting The Toddwaz Report, with a QR code for quick access to my website. I also handed-out cards promoting the blog. The immediate results were modest and disappointing.
Since then, here are the 6 week results:
· Facebook Likes +41%
· Twitter Followers +71%
· YouTube Views +62%
· YouTube Subscribers (Unchanged)
· Blogspot Page Views +99%
· Blogspot Subscribers (Unchanged)
· LinkedIn Connections +17%
I’d have to conclude that the $100 I spent on T-shirts and cards did yield measurable results. In the virtual world, the six degrees of separation that I wrote about in June can have a widespread impact. Over the past month, only 54% of page-views on my blog have come from Canada; 18% from the U.S., 8% from Russia and 5% from France.
