Here’s What Social Networking Is All About

I never claim to be a Social Media “Evangelist” (whatever that means) like all the whako’s on twitter, but my brother-in-law, David, (who happens to be the CFO down here at Samuelson’s) got a Facebook response that really sums it up.   He posted a link to our Samuelson’s Diamonds Fan Page on his profile and said, “Become a Fan”.  Plain and simple.  Below is the response from a friend:

“I am a fan. I will say pre FB, who would have thought I would be a fan of a jewelry store I have not even been to. Or even just a jewelry store for that matter..Yet I know the history of the store, and watched the footage. Prince on the big screen etc..Even Ron’s Strat…
PS..Ron, go for a Gretch Nashville next…Heaven on Earth!”

There you go.  It’s not about shoving product down people’s throats.  It’s not about selling yourself all the time.  It’s about being yourself and showing everyone your brand and what YOU are all about.  Whether it’s next week or in 10 years, if this guy is ever in the market for a diamond, I think I’ll be on his list.  And even better, maybe we’ll have a jam session!
