Friends and co-founders of new site SocialMediaGirlfriends.com, Britt Michaelian and Dabney Porte, reveal their new initiatives to bring together women working towards social media networking and forming social media friendships.
Online PR News – 21-July-2011 – – Britt Michaelian and Dabney Porte want to share that social media is more than just a way to connect with friends, or for businesses to communicate with their customers. Their innovative and unique site, Social media girlfriends, invites empowered women to join forces on different social media channels, encouraging and educating each other along the way. With regularly scheduled chats, a specialized Twitter hashtag (#SMgirlfriends), a blog, a Youtube channel and many other ways to connect, Social Media Girlfriends is the newest and hottest place for women to form Social media friendships while learning how others succeed in life.
Encouraged by the enthusiastic participation in their first test chat session, Michaelian and Porte realized that they had something the public wanted. The fresh community built within Social Media Girlfriends allows like-minded, enthusiastic women to form relationships with each other, and adds entertainment and support into an educational forum.
"Our community is fun and unique, because there is always someone else there to bounce ideas off of, to relate with, and to understand your goals. We love seeing women support and encourage each other, sharing in their brilliance!" said Britt Michaelian, MA, Co-Founder of Girlfriends Productions, LLC and Social Media Girlfriends (http://www.socialmediagirlfriends.com)
The other half of this innovative project is Girlfriend Productions, LLC, which helps to mesh traditional media platforms with Social media networking. Print, television, film and live events can get a boost of millions in viewership on a daily basis when they hire Girlfriends Productions, LLC on a CPM basis. "In our first Social Media Girlfriends TweetChat, we reached over 13 million unique impressions, and over 1 million people in a single hour. That's simply incredible!" shared Porte.
To join in, Social Media Girlfriends holds a monthly simul-chat for #smgirlfriends on the first Thursday of each month, allowing women to connect via phone and Twitter. The Twitter hashtag, #smgirlfriends, is active 24/7. Interested parties can obtain a #smgirlfriends badge to post on their website or blog to show that they are an active part of a thriving community by visiting http://www.socialmediagirlfriends.com. A blog is available at http://www.socialmediagirlfriends.com/blog.
