Did you know that in the last 30 days the Generation Blue Experience Twitter hashtag #GenBlue was used over 200 times? Not bad considering the conference hasn’t even started yet! One of the major reasons that the Gen Blue conversation on Facebook, Twitter and other social media outlets has been buzzing is due to an amazing group of social media stars now known as The Gen Blue Social Squad. These individuals have made the Coldwell Banker brand and Generation Blue Experience part of their daily conversations with their networks which include over 100,000 people.
The people who have been selected as members of the Gen Blue Social Squad are Coldwell Banker enthusiasts. Think of them as our version of those Apple diehards who are the first in line at the Apple store anytime there is new iPhone, iPad or i-anything. They then tweet, blog and share their passion for all things Apple.
Well, our group does the same for Coldwell Banker. In my first two months at Coldwell Banker I’ve been amazed at the amount of social media activity these leaders produce. While there are others, I know you are going to enjoy their dispatches from New Orleans. To a person, they understand the value of the Coldwell Banker brand and love using social media to share news, tips and advice all while having fun.
The goal for the Social Squad is to help capture and enhance the Gen Blue experience for both attendees and those who are unable to make it. They will be tweeting, blogging, facebooking,(yes, that is now an acceptable word) sharing videos and pictures and even recommending places to visit on Foursquare during the conference. Please be sure to follow them!
