You have seen many posts telling you “Why Your Business Needs Social Media” but let me take this opportunity to tell you why Social Media needs your business and how you can help.

  • How many of you have created leads for your business using Twitter/Facebook and other social pages?
  • How many clients have you created a personal relationship with because of your interaction with them on various social media sites?
  • How many times have you thanked social media for giving you the most up-to-date information about your competitors and helped you step up your own act?
  • How many compliments have you got from your clients for always being online and available for them, because of social media?

If you have answered yes to at least one of the questions above- Have you thought of how you can pay-back?

Social media is free and available to all but it’s all a give and take. You cannot expect to keep receiving from it if you don’t initiate a “giving” from your end too.

Twestival (or Twitter festival) Melbourne 2011 is your chance to give back to the community. The Twestival is a great night to network with like-minded social media advocates over some drinks and bid for some cool goodies in a public and silent auction. This is your chance to let the community know that your business is social-media savvy and ready to go an extra length for the community.

This year Melbourne Twestival is raising money for STREAT, an Australian social enterprise providing homeless youth with a supported pathway to long-term careers in the hospitality industry. STREAT runs street cafes in Melbourne where youth get their hospitality training. The food is inspired by street hawker food from around the world. More information about them here

By being part of the Melbourne Twestival you can make a real difference to the lives and livelihood of someone currently living on the street.

The Twestival organized for Melbourne will be held at the STREAT offices on Thursday evening 6-9pm on March 24. We encourage you and/your business to be a part of the Melbourne twitter community and raise awareness and worthy funds for this project. Get your tickets here

Think of all the support and connections you have in the Twitter community, now is the time to reach out to your local community and give them some support

To find out how your business can be a part of this great initiative and to keep updated with the latest news before the 24th March, tweet us on Twitter @TwestivalMel or join us on facebook here
