Southern Accents, realizing the important role social media now plays in marketing and communication, has worked really hard over this past year to build a presence via a variety of social media outlets. While most of you are probably familiar with social media, some of you may still be hesitant to jump on board! We would like to introduce you to the various outlets that we are using, familiarize you with how we are using them and encourage you to “plug in” and follow along with us!
Newsletter – Our primary source and best method of communication is through our weekly newsletter. Our goal is to provide a variety of interesting content that will entertain, educate, enlighten, and encourage our readers. We appreciate all the feedback that we receive and encourage you to share our writings with others. If you are a new subscriber, you can view back issues online by visiting our Newsletter page.
Blog – Each week we take the main content from our newsletter and post it to our blog. At times we will expand on a story or add additional photos to the blog post. With our blog, we have created a searchable database of information related to architectural salvage. Many of our stories contain historical data that is now publicly recorded for future use. We encourage you to subscribe to our blog. It’s easy… just visit the blog, scroll down and look for the “Follow Blog via E-mail” on the right hand side. Add your e-mail address and click the “Follow” button.
Facebook – Although Facebook has made many changes over the past year that has directly affected our ability to communicate with our followers, Facebook is still a driving force in the social media market. We use Facebook to alert our followers to new architectural and antique finds as they are added to our showroom. We also share DIY and decorating ideas, local events, and more. There are a few things you can do to ensure that you see our posts. 1) Go to our Facebook page and mouse over the like button. Check “Get Notifications”. 2) You can also mouse over the like button and click on “Settings”. You can then select “All Updates”. 3) Mouse over the like button and add us to an “Interest” list. It can be an existing list that you have already created or you can create one just for us!
Pinterest – Pinterest is an online “pin board” that allows us to post and share our own original pictures and ideas as well as ideas from all the incredibly talented and creative folks who are finding unique ways to repurpose salvaged goods. If you love salvaged goods as much as we do, we encourage you to visit and follow our boards. Pinterest is a great resource for DIY enthusiasts!
Twitter – We use Twitter to send out short notices and reminders of events that Southern Accents is involved in. We also “tweet” about new arrivals to our showroom. If you are a twitter user please follow us! We don’t want you to miss a thing!
Instagram – They say a picture paints a thousand words and we would have to agree! We have so many beautiful pieces in our showroom and we love to share our pictures with you! If you have a smart phone but haven’t discovered Instagram we invite you to check it out. Instagram allows users to capture and share the world’s moments with snapshots.
