#DSMMoms #DisneyOTR #Chicago2014
In June, I attended the Disney Social Media Moms “On The Road” Celebration in Chicago. It was an amazing experience you can read all about here.
Ramon DeLeon was a guest speaker at the conference. Ramon can be described in multiple words, but the first that comes to my mind is “energetic passion”. Okay, so maybe that’s 2 words, but the man has both- and lots. Ramon was social media before there was social media. He’s the “pizza guy who gets it”. He packed a bunch of info into the time he was on stage and he was such a great part of the event, I should probably create a video selfie* about it.
I learned quickly that when @Ramon_DeLeon talks, people listen. Is it because of his passion in sharing his knowledge? He loves to share, encourage and promote. Is it because of his seemingly endless amount of energy? That he does have. However, the main reason people listen when #RamonWOW talks, is because he cares. He cares and he shows it. He spent his time with us sharing his secrets. I came away from the event with a new way of focusing on social media and a whole lot to think about.
“Find the music that makes your audience dance.” – Ramon DeLeon
“If you stopped blogging tomorrow, would your followers miss you?” – Ramon DeLeon
“Ask the right questions. Empower your fans.” – Ramon DeLeon
Treat your followers like friends.
How do you make your followers feel?
Do they feel your commitment, value and gratitude?
“Would you follow you?” – Ramon DeLeon
*Video Selfies Rock!
Oh, and here’s that video selfie I mentioned:
