Social Media Business Hour – Show 42 with Special Guest Cynthia Sanchez


Our guest expert for this show is Cynthia Sanchez, and she’s a Pinterest addict. 

When she first started using Pinterest in 2011, she noticed that she  using the Pinterest word over and over again to my friends and family. She was discovering many new things online. She found websites and blogs that inspired her to do things, make things and even buy things. She was so amazed by what she was discovering that she decided to start a blog about it.

Her blog “Oh So Pinteresting” was launched in February 2012 and after a few months she was approached by a company and asked if I would help them with Pinterest and manage their social media accounts. In September 2012, a short 6 months after she started blogging she left her job as a full-time radiation oncology nurse to focus on building Oh So Pinteresting and her new business.

As in the medical world, social media is ever evolving and changing and requires continuous study. Since launching the blog, she has continued her education taking multiple courses and attended several conferences focused on social media.

In growing and marketing her own business, she has had to learn multiple social media platforms and how to create content for them. She writes the content for her blog, produces her own podcast, record videos and create graphics.

As a nurse, she found if she did her best to empathize with each patient to help them heal. It is proven that if nurses relate to their patients, the nursing process goes much more smoothly and the patient has an overall better experience.

She followed that approach in her business and encourages her clients to take the same approach in their social media marketing.

She is excited and really enjoys teaching and helping people find solutions. This may come from her years of being a registered nurse or from being the mother of 2 sets of twins. It’s probably a bit of both.   

For fun, aside from exploring Pinterest, she enjoys traveling with her family, crafting, and learning photography.

Keep you note pad handy as Cynthia will provide many great ideas to help you grow your business!

Then all of a sudden the your dream of hosting a hit podcast turned into a giant ‘time suck’ and distraction of research and bookings!

Then when your podcast becomes a big hit, and guest are clamoring to get on your podcast  you simply don’t want to deal with all the booking details.  Jessica solves both problems by becoming you one stop booking and scheduling agent in a simple done-for-you service.

Social Media Marketing Strategies


Executives at corporations and smaller companies are realizing the need for a social media strategy and marketing plan. Great content marketing will attract potentially high value customers, and these customers will come back for more.

The great thing about a well carried out a Social Media Marketing Strategy is that it requires very little financial investment from your side.
Developing a social media marketing strategy should not be a “try this at home” project or dumped on the IT department.

Social Media Marketing

Posting occasionally on your Twitter account or writing blogs for the sake doing so, doesn’t make a social media marketing strategy.

Today, many companies are using social media tactically by posting updates to Facebook, LinkedIn, Google+ or Twitter. Many are under the assumption that having a social media strategy is equivalent to setting up a Facebook and Twitter account and sharing a few random posts with followers this is a HUGE waste of time.

What is happening, are companies rushing into creating Facebook pages and Twitter accounts without much creative thought or marketing strategy.

What business owners and professionals should understand is, social media is a powerful vehicle for the holy grail of marketing: Word of Mouth…and if done correctly, it will empower citizen brand ambassadors with content to share with their personal contacts.

Many brands these days use social media to promote themselves and to reach out to their target audience.

You absolutely must find your audience, listen to what they’re saying, and then form a strategy around your findings for that audience. Also social media marketing is all about targeting your customers with content that speaks directly to them in their language.

Businesses can certainly use social to media to push their products and services, but it should really, be used for conversation.  Those conversations will create opportunities for your business, that you wouldn’t have had if you were just trying to sell.
