Social media marketing can't be airy-fairy theory if you want tangible results. And just being on a site like Twitter isn't enough - you must engage with your audience. With this netbook giveaway I'm able to both participate with my audience on a large scale and give something back to a few lucky community members.

Michelle MacPhearson, author of Social Media Daily, announced today that she is sponsoring a free giveaway offering Twitter users the chance to win prizes, including an Acer Aspire One netbook.
Social media and Web 2.0 sites like Twitter have gained massive popularity in recent months; Twitter itself gains 5 to 10,000 new users each day.
Many small business owners are aware of the huge marketing potential of social media sites, but are not knowledgeable in how to access that market.
"This Twitter contest is a great example of the kind of innovative marketing strategies one can leverage with Web 2.0 to create new fans, inspire brand awareness and generate website traffic," says MacPhearson.
"Using social media sites like Twitter to transmit your message to interested contacts en masse is a powerful medium, and as these kinds of sites gain traction with the mainstream, we have the opportunity to reach out to prospects, with their permission, that we never would have before."
The contest grand prize is a Acer Aspire One 8.9-Inch Netbook with Windows XP and a 160-GB hard drive. Second prize is a Snowball USB Microphone, and the third prize is a copy of the book Ready, Fire, Aim: Zero to $100 Million in No Time Flat by Michael Masterson. Full details on the prizes may be found at Social Media Marketing.
Michelle Macphearson blogs on cutting edge social media marketing strategy and teaches other small business owners how to harness the web 2.0 revolution to promote their businesses. The Twitter contest celebrates the launch of CrowdMountain.com, an online course giving entrepreneurs an internet marketing plan for using search engine optimization and social media to generate website traffic and sales.
