Welcome to CLR Virtual Connection – helping you proactively manage the social side of your business through authentic and consistent engagement.
I’m Rebecca Thompson, a social media consultant and strategist who assists small business owners with increasing the quality of their social media presence and online communities. I love social media and thrive on using it to increase brand awareness and gain visibility for my clients.
My passion is for building authentic relationships
“Build it, and they will come” only works in the movies. Social Media is a “build it, nurture it, engage them, and they may come and stay.” – Seth Godin
I love this quote by marketer and author Seth Godin. I tell people all the time that social media is about being authentic and engaging with your community. A lot of people think they can just put something up on a website or social network and say “ok come see it,” but that’s not how it works. Whether you are an individual, a small business or a large corporation, you have to build what’s known as the “know, like, trust” factor. You have to engage with people—your friends, your customers, your fans—and gain their trust. Once you achieve that, then you will have an authentic and valuable relationship with them. Your customers will become your best advocates.
Since 2008, I’ve been building authentic online relationships for MY customers. Cultivating these relationships comes natural to me, but social marketing is ever-changing, so I’m always learning and currently hold several certifications (as a Social Media Strategist, Internet Marketing Specialist, HootSuite Professional and Certified Master Microsoft Office User Specialist). I was listed as one of Houston’s Top Social Media Power Influencers in 2013 and 2014. I like to think outside the box and am always up for a challenge – let me do the social media stuff you don’t like to or can’t do!
