I have to admit that this is my first ever experience blogging. When I was hired by Stork Craft back in May, creating a Stork Craft Blog and signing us up for Facebook and Twitter accounts were only a small part of my job description. Things started slow….really slooooooooooooooooooow. If I remember correctly, Stork Craft only had 4 followers of this blog in the first month of its existence (one of them being myself).
Being new to the ‘Social Media World’ I was discouraged with the lack of instant results. Why weren’t more people reading our blog? I kept telling myself that I had to be patient and that eventually the readers will come. Being one of the the world’s largest baby furniture manufacturers in the world, I knew we had the customer base. But did the customers know that Stork Craft was finally online and ready to connect with them?
Through contests and other Mommy Blogs being extremely helpful with tips and referrals (Dee at Twoofakind, Jolly Mom, Barefoot Mommies and J Leigh Designz) we have finally achieved a strong reader base for this blog, on Facebook and Twitter. While we certainly have a ways to go before I will be fully satisfied with the Social Media Department here at Stork Craft, I can safely say that there is nothing that I enjoy more at work than interacting and connecting with customers and fans of Stork Craft online. Whether it be a simple email asking me questions about new products, or comments on our blog, or tweets on Twitter, or thumbs up on Facebook, the feeling that I get from responding to customers is one of satisfaction and gratitude.
Thank you Mommy Bloggers, fans and customers of Stork Craft who continue to read this blog and show interest in our company. Your support is what motivates me to make this blog what it is today. Feel free to contact me at anytime if you have any questions or comments about our products. Blog post suggestions are always welcome too
