Start 2013 On the Right Foot #SplashChat

Thursday, January 10th, 2013 | 0 Comments

The other day, on Facebook, someone was complaining that she was tired of people wishing each other Happy New Year. Since the year was all of 6 days old I thought that just maybe she was jumping the gun a bit. Heck, I’m still working on putting together my Goals and Objectives for 2013! I’ll be wishing people a happy new year well into the month and possibly a bit into next month!

I love the start of the year (clearly you’d guessed this by now). I love how it’s a fresh start full of possibilities. It’s a time to take stock, to make plans, and to think about how you want to shape the coming year.

Join us tomorrow, Thursday, January 10th at 10am PST/1pm EST for our next Twitter #SplashChat. We’ll discuss tips and tricks to getting the year started on the right foot so we can all make 2013 awesome, both on personal and professional levels!

What’s #SplashChat? It’s our monthly non-sponsored Twitter chat geared towards other social media professionals or anyone who wants to join a smart, informative, and fun group of people intent on growing and learning together! (You know, you!)

No need to RSVP, just come chat with us! “See” you there!

Holiday Wishing Granting by eBay

Monday, December 3rd, 2012 | 0 Comments

Black Friday. Small Business Saturday. Cyber Monday. Giving Back Tuesday.

If you aren’t in a holiday buying frame of mind yet, you must be living somewhere very still, very quiet, and off the grid. (Take us there too, please and thank you!) For the rest of us, ’tis the season to wrack our brains with “Who to shop for? What to buy? How much to spend? Where to go for the great deals?

It can be maddening, especially if you’re doing more juggling than jing-jing-jingling all the way this December!

Just in the nick of time, eBay is here to help! Not only can you shop eBay for the most amazing deals online, it can also you find the perfect gift and keep track of your holiday shopping lists with their new Facebook gifting app - the Holiday Gift Shop

You can use this app to create gift lists for whomever you wish– a spouse, your co-workers, your book club. To add someone to your lists, just type in their name. Once their Facebook profile comes up, eBay experts will instantly make gift recommendations based on whatever your friends have posted on their profile. How cool is that!

Once you’ve found just the right gift, you can click to buy it without even having to leave the app or Facebook.

The Holiday Gift Shop app allows your kids to get in on the holiday fun too with an interactive “Kids Toy List” section. With adult supervision, of course, your kids can scroll around and click on the toys they want. Once their list is complete, they can send a very special and very urgent message the North Pole– an eBay direct line to Santa!

It’s so simple and easy to use. To review the app, I created lists for my Splash Creative Media colleagues…

What’s on it??? Well, they will just have to be good little social media experts and wait until Christmas to find out, because no one on your lists can see what you’ve created. These are lists a just between you, eBay… and well, the big guy with the all the reindeer. (wink)

The eBay Holiday Gift Shop app makes all of you holiday gifting super convenient. It ties right into the eBay site and the eBay mobile app so you can shop any where, any time! But don’t wait until the list minute to use it… No. No. NO.

From now until December 21, 2012, anyone who simply creates a gift list, for themselves or for a child, will be entered for a chance to win their “Wishlist Granted”. Each day, eBay will award one lucky winner one of their gift list items (valued up to $200) PLUS a $100 eBay Gift Card to do more shopping!

Happy eBay Shopping!!!


Disclosure: eBay is a client of Splash Creative Media and I have been compensated for this post. Please refer to the eBay Holiday Gift Shop Sweepstakes Official Rules for more terms and conditions for the chance to win an item on your gift list + an eBay gift card.

Communication Expectations: Tips and Guidelines #SplashChat

Thursday, October 11th, 2012 | 0 Comments

In the time it took me to think up the title of this post I probably received 40 emails. Granted, quite a few of those were probably from Facebook informing me that someone left a comment on a post or another, but some were possibly important and in need of a response and some were probably in that dark zone of emails that could be answered or could be ignored.

In a world where we get over 300 emails in a day, where we get texts, phone calls, Skype messages, and who knows what other pings from the outside world, we’re constantly faced with the need to decide what to respond to and how, what to ignore and why.

Let’s spend a bit of time chatting about communication expectations: what requires a response, how to best respond to emails, how to use communication to our advantage.

Join the Splash Creative Media team on Twitter Thursday, October 11th (tomorrow!) at 10amPST-1pmEST for an hour long #SplashChat. We can’t wait to hear what you have to say!
