Dell features Socialmedia.biz

I've been following the social media work of Bob Pearson, VP of communities and conversations for Dell, for some time (he's @bobpdell on Twitter).

So it came as a surprise when a friend IM'd to say, Hey, did you know Dell is promoting your blog? Well, no. But a look at their lead 58-second introductory video on Facebook about Dell's efforts with social media has Pearson showing off a blog about social media — this one.

Thanks, Bob! I've been aware of Dell's efforts to make social media more accessible to regular folks through its written guides and video screencasts, and I hope to highlight those in a new social media learning center I'm starting to put together.

You can join the Facebook group Social Media for Small Business, powered by Dell, here.

JD Lasica, founder of Socialmedia.biz, is now co-founder of the cruise discovery engine Cruiseable. See his About page, contact JD or follow him on Twitter or Google Plus.

  • JD, appreciate your post. Our goal with our Facebook page for Small Business is to continue to share ways for SB’s to best utilize social media. We’re starting to add more examples of companies in action and are continuing to look for ideas from the community. Like much of social media, we are learning with our customers in real time on the best way to do this. All the best, Bob

  • That has to feel pretty good knowing your blog was being shown by a company as popular as Dell!

    I wasn’t even aware that they had a group on Facebook until I read this post. I’ll definitely have to check it out, as I am working in a rather small business right now!
