Monday Quick Tip – Best In Horsebiz Social Media Continues – Listen Live Today For ESMA Wrap-Up on Horse Radio Network
The 2012 Equestrian Social Media Awards winners will be announced this week via their ‘virtual awards show.’ A different awards video is posted each day, announcing winners from the 30 different awards categories this year.
We’ve got the links to watch the videos AND listen to the Horse Radio Network wrap-up next Monday, March 12th. If you’re using social networking and social media for your horsebiz, tune in to find out what’s considered ‘the best of the best’ when it comes to horse industry social media use.
The ESMAs will have a series of seven videos (5 awards and 2 montage videos) showcasing the best and brightest of the equestrian social media community. I’ve just seen video #1, and it’s OUTSTANDING! Even if you don’t care who the winners are, it’s worth watching as an example of a well-done equine-oriented video; you can watch the videos this week at the official ESMA website.
I feel honored and awed to be a part of this list of only 181 finalists – these are truly horse people who are transforming our industry through social media. And having a good time doing it.
Here’s to all the winners, AND to every horseman & horsewoman getting onto their computer and mobile technology and connecting and sharing via Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, Flickr, and all manner of social and online media. In the end, it makes us ALL winners!
