Runway Digital Social Media updates ~ our plan!

Blog by Runway Digital Capt’n, Samantha Bell.


Our intention remains strong in 2013 ~ for exceptional brands to have great audiences. To connect relevant people to each other. Quickly. To have businesses tell their true and inspiring stories. To have their customers enjoy engaging with them.

Since 2006, I’ve been driven to learn the best ways and to pass on the learning. This year we’ll keep distributing great info and up to date insights on trends that are of interest. We do this to make you / your organisation’s life easier online and to have you quickly find people online who seek what you sell and do.

As always, you have the power to influence what you receive. Be involved, let us know what is working for you, what you’d like to receive and questions you have.

2013 seems like the year to cull – to work with simple systems that have big results; to cull things that don’t work as well. At Runway Digital, that means we will give you less posts of higher quality so you can get on with doing. We’re doing this through more channels: Facebook, Twitter, Google+, LinkedIn, YouTube, our website, newsletters to our email subscribers and emerging channels such as Instagram. We’re even wondering what sort of mischief to post to have you laughing.

A fortnight ago, we gave insights to creating great content and last week it was tips on specific social media sites that we’ve collated on Pinterest – and we’ll keep updating Pinterest as it’s a great location to collate interesting subjects on a topic.

This week we’re talking about strategic social media: alliances and partnerships and how they can help you grow your audience.

Tune in and learn… but not for long – we want you to do what works and see you fly high! Send us a tweet or Facebook post or note on any other site to keep us updated.

We’re interested to hear from you via Twitter, Google+, or LinkedIn. Hear’s to your lift-off!

Where to start with Social Media

Blog by Runway Digital Capt’n, Samantha Bell.


These are words that were added to Nikki White’s new online business community for Natural Therapists – a wonderful new initiative – and are posted here for those who are new to Social Media or possibly those caught in doing too much, unfocused work in Social Media for their businesses. Enjoy:

“Remember that people want to contact you via different online sites – Facebook, Twitter, email, your website etc. Work out who you wish to attract, what sites they use, and how often you want to post on these sites. Look for automated tools such as Buffer and plan an amount of time each month to plan relevant topics you want to write about (or find information on) to provide value to your audience.

A big advantage is having someone update Social Media for you. This is where a virtual assistant can come in handy or even a family member / friend who can help out. Don’t get too exhausted trying to update loads of sites. Update settings to send you an email if you don’t log in regularly. (If you log in to Facebook / Twitter etc regularly then turn these settings off – don’t double up!).

Enjoy engaging with people through these sites – get it organised so you don’t feel exhausted.”

Hope this helps. Get in touch for more support via Twitter: Runway Digital or Samantha Bell.

New Runway Digital Flight Deck: Inspire9

New Runway Digital Flight Deck: Inspire9

Runway Digital is based in Melbourne, Australia and sets up wherever great work needs to occur – to date this has included Bali, Indonesia, London, and North America. Recently we’ve joined Inspire9 – a ‘coworking’ space in Richmond, Victoria, Australia.


We’re impressed by the productive, easy environment of many people of all different professions and backgrounds and organisations working together. Largely technology-based, with many web developers and tech startups, we’ve started working with and talking to other organisations that will complement Runway Digital, while also enjoying filmmakers and photographers and other professions who are starting to work from Inspire 9.

It’s here and it’s also a window into the future where more and more teams full of individuals who are exceptionally good at what they do (and passionate about it) work easily at whatever time suits.
