Inspired by a seminar on Social Media and Linked-In January 27, we finally are on Facebook. The seminar was sponsored by BYU Management Society Silicon Valley Chapter, San Jose State University Alumni Association and Mass Mutual and featured presentations by Arthur Jue, coauthor of Social Media At Work, and Mike O'Neil & Lori Ruff, authors of Rock the World with your Online Presence--Your Ticket to a Multi-Platinum LinkedIn Profile. Mike, Arthur & Lori are the three on the left in the photo. Also pictured continuing on to the left is Mike Rasmussen of the BYU Management Society, Brian Bates of the SJSU Alumni Association, and Susan Dittmann of Mass Mutual Financial Group.
I had been thinking about a Facebook page for Beehive for a while, but this seminar in conjunction with the assistance of my daughter and an enthusiastic employee (Lora of the Beehive Bookstore videos) finally provided the momentum to actually do it. Help us reach our goal of 500 fans by March 15. Become one of our fans (click on Facebook button on right margin) and invite at least 20 of your friends to become fans, and we will give you a 5% off code for our website or a coupon for in the store. Email me at email@example.com to let me know, and I will email you the code and/or coupon. We are hoping that Facebook will be a an easier place for our wonderful customers can share ideas and recommendations about their favorite LDS products. We will be posting videos featuring new and/or cool stuff in our store. Stay tuned!
