You Still Aren't LinkedIn?

I am often asked by industry colleagues, "How can a social media site like Linkedin help me sell material handling equipment?"  Linkedin, in my humble opinion, is the most powerful sales tool since the phone. Linkedin, if used properly can easily double or triple an average sales persons reach. It opens door that were once permanently locked. In today's economy increasing marketing reach is of utmost importance. If your customers aren't buying material handling products, you need to find more customers. Linkedin is the perfect tool for the task. Build It and They Will Come First things first. In order to be successful on Linkedin you must have a complete Linkedin page with a professional looking head shot. Make certain you have a robust description ... Read more

Twitter, Our Customers, and the Social Media Community

I am first and foremost a marketing person, specifically business to business (or Government) marketing on the Internet. We have been very fortunate to be able to grow American Warehouse Systems from two guys in a storage closet (literally) to one of the largest suppliers of material handling products to the US Federal Government. All of this business has been generated via Internet traffic (to date we still don't have a yellow page listing). Through the years we have relied on leading edge search engine optimization and other Internet marketing strategies to bring our customers to us. With the dawn of social media I have turned a great deal of my attention toward this "new" marketing resource.  Social media is a great way to get ... Read more

A Great Networking and Educational Event

I realize that most folks that read this blog aren't in the Minneapolis area but it would be nothing but wrong if I didn't mention the Linked Minnesota Summer Extravaganza on June 21st at the Minneapolis Airport Hilton. Linked Minnesota is a group formed on LinkedIn (and still going strong) of businesses and individuals with interest in networking mainly for business. Every month the group meets for a lunch networking program somewhere in the Twin Cites and twice a year the group has a large event. Next Monday is the big summer event. This program should be great! It looks to be quite large also with close to 500 attendees and over 60 booths. American Warehouse Systems will be there for any material handling systems ... Read more

Can This Pickle Get More Followers Than @markjuelich?

There is a well known Facebook story where the pickle defeats the rock band. I won't go into it here but it does bring up several questions about social media and human beings. Let's take Twitter for example. I have in past blogs written about the social"ness" of Twitter and the desire for people to become part of a group of like minded individuals. I often like to think of Twitter as a social party where several groups of friends are gathered discussing different topics. If you jump into a group you can join in the discussion. What if you were in one of these circles anxious to join in only to realize everyone but you was a recording on a machine? You try to ... Read more
