Doing the Do on Social Media Platforms
The “Do” I’m referring to is getting down and socializing. Carrying on conversations with real people.
For the sake of simplicity let’s use Twitter as the “social media platform” of choice to talk about today. #Twitter just so happens to be my favourite.
Now, when I say socialize, I mean you know “talk” via tweets. That’s the point right? To engage fellow social media types into back and forth “conversations”.
Do you comment when you retweet? Yes? Great! Oh oh, did I hear a no? If you never initiate a conversation (attempt to engage) how exactly are you “socializing”?
Don’t just like and retweet, make a comment snarky, funny or sweet! Ask a question, make a request something that encourages a reply is best…

Intense Synonym List…
Ever find yourself in desperate need of an attention grabbing word that means the same as another aka a synonym?
So my niece was working on her homework and we were looking for a POWERFUL synonym for solemn…
We chose INTENSE. Now that’s a power word if ever I’ve read one 😉
It’s Wednesday. I figured why not turn our latest INTENSE homework session into a round of Wacky Word Wednesday.
I’m being EARNEST, when I say that these funky little lists of synonyms SERIOUSLY come in handy when I’m stuck for attention grabbing words.

That was one SERIOUSLY PASSIONATE synonym seeking session! Pursuing synonyms for a SOLEMN word somehow ended with a FLIPPANT word like JOKEY. Isn’t that ironic?

Social Media Followers Hint…

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again and probably again a few times after that. Words do matter! They should jump out at you.
Here is today’s list of whacky attention grabbers.
Notice the theme? Yup, suggestions from a thesaurus for the word wacky/whacky. Let’s see what else can I share in 49 words or less? I know, here’s a terrific #Twitter tip from @KimGarst. “Make your Tweets stand out – be funny, poignant, or otherwise unique”.
The way I figure it is, if I’m myself when I tweet then I know I’m being “otherwise unique”.

Stuck for words?
Social Media may be all the rage over video right now. Tweets with pictures are wayyy more engaging than those without. Opened and read newsletter e-mails can deliver powerful results BUT bottom line is the “words” you choose to use.
They get the click or they don’t.
Words have to SCREAM read me. Words are the central driving force behind getting the response you want to your calls to action.
Tweeting has taught me how to make my point using carefully chosen attention grabbing words. A combination of powerful words that gets people to read and react. Fun words that encourage engagement.
Where was I? Right! Yup I do get stuck for words. Good news! Social Media word ideas are all around us. Click here for a list of 25 social media word ideas from a comic book…
