Tips on how to use Twitter to connect with influencers from Carmen Lascu

• How many hashtags should we use? …I would say on Twitter no more than two, three. On Instagram, you can use 10, 11. On Instagram the more the better. And then on Facebook, maybe two, three…

Doug: Well, welcome back listeners to another episode of Real Marketing Real Fast. Today in the studio I’ve got a special guest joining me, her name is Carmen Lascu. She is a social media expert with over 15 years of experience in mass media, public relations, marketing, events, business development, social media, and digital marketing. She was a finalist in the UK Blog Awards in 2017 and 2018. She is a social media influencer and actually, that’s how I met Carmen was online through Twitter. She is an author of three social media books published on Amazon. She has been featured in the Huffington Post, Business Cloud Magazine, and other printed and online magazines.

She was born in Romania. She’s living in the UK since May 2011. She is happily married with a little girl born in March 2013. She is a follower of Jesus, loving people and empowering them to do great things. I’d like to welcome Carmen to the Real Marketing podcast today.

Carmen: Yeah at first I think everything started with my desire to share with others how to use social media for business, because from the beginning I thought okay, social media is good, it’s a great way to communicate with family, with friends, but it’s good to use for your business t
