I first saw Liz on Empire Avenue. Yes it is an Internet game, but although I do not do Mafia Wars or Farmville I love EAv because it tells you about your reach on social media and reminds you where you need to put more work and how you are doing on many of the different medias. Enough about EAv. Go check it out and remember not to let the tail wag the dog.
Liz plays Angry Birds and is on EAv and I see here there and everytime I do something on EAv Liz says something nice and one day she sends me a nice personal tweet. It was sweet and very nice and I took a second to Google her and check out who she was. To my amazement she is not just another blogger.
Let me put this in perspective… Liz is a keynote speaker at BlogWorld! So why the personal note? This is what Liz does to build community. It is what I do on my sites. It is all about talking to one person at a time. It is the essence of building community.
I am honored that she choose me and am now a HUGE fan. More that that as you listen to this interview you will see the immense genius of Liz and what she does and what she believes, what she teaches and how she lives her values.
Thank you so much Liz. This interview starts out a bit rough and I apologize, but you were a trooper and did not let my fumbling deter you from making your incredible points.
Many of us struggle with social media and others are building incredible lists of thousand and thousands, but the most important and hardest thing to do on the web, in sales and marketing and social media is to build rapport and community. Some can build huge rapport and community, but have no clue how, why or if they should market them. Liz can do both and very well.
Take the time to listen to this interview more than once. This is one of the more important interviews I have done and you will learn from listening to Liz – JW
