There is power in sharing. Sharing produces pride and joy in the giver and the gifted.
One reason M&Ms candy became so popular is they understood the power of sharing.
Those small, colorful candies are wonderful to give away. The owner of the bag says, “Hey, look what I have here. Want some?” The bystander, knowing they won’t melt in the hand – hold out their hand. “Cool, thanks!” Both are happy. Pride and joy to both parties.
If you own a small business, have a website, and neglect the power of the social sharing buttons – you’re making a mistake. The buttons are small, colorful and are a wonderful way for discoverers of your content to share with others.
Ponder this: On Pinterest, one of the fastest growing social networks, over 80% of the “pins” are re-pins. A lot of sharing.
Moms share a lot. They also wield a lot of the buying power in the household. And they’re busy. Make it easy for them to share. Pride and joy for all.
