Chocolate Delights


Actually, I wasn’t looking for chocolate, I was looking for a good coffee. I was craving a latte and I was in San Anselmo near Redhill shopping center and wanted something besides Starbucks or Peets. I saw the little, tiny, charming store in Redhill called Chocolate Delights and remembered they had coffee.

socila media

In today’s modern world social media is probably the most important marketing tool out there. Social networking builds relationshipsbuilding relationships builds familiarity and trust familiarity and trust builds a successful business. Social media is the marketing of today and the future. Traditional marketing techniques are being replaced by social networking on the Internet. Social media can create a powerful positive buzz online about your brand due to its capacity to reach out to thousands of people instantaneously. First class customer service requires paying individual attention to your customers and social media makes possible personal relationships with thousands of people through the internet. Social media is critical these days when everybody is using the internet to socialize, communicate, date, meet others, work, and research and make decisions about their next purchase. Today’s market bases their buying decisions on knowledge and trust; they talk with others and listen to what others are saying, “78% of consumers trust peer recommendations”. Social networking can make or break a company today. “Social Media is not a fad; it is a fundamental switch in the way we communicate” –Socialnomics.

  • There are currently more than 1.6 billion active users on Facebook.
  • “Given the passion and high profiles of “Twitterverse” denizens, the service has evolved into a vital early-warning system for businesses seeking to stave off criticism, and as a way to build better relationships with customers. That is why companies need to know Twitter. Embracing it can help a business thrive; ignoring the service could well hurt it.” – Julio Ojeda-Zapata, Author of Twitter Means Business: How Microblogging Can Help or Hurt Your Company

It is essential for corporations and businesses to be on social networking sites for many reasons, to name a few: damage control, customer service and relationships, BUZZ, etc. Twitter can be used for damage control (when someone bad mouths your State Farm agency, someone from your office steps in and rectifies problem immediately showing the world that this State Farm agent cares about its customers.) Also, being active on the various sites (Twitter, Facebook, Flickr, YouTube) will improve your Website’s SEO and bring more traffic (more potential customers) to you.

I believe social currency is very important. The more people that are familiar with your business and love and trust it the more satisfied customers you will have that will be your ambassadors.

Today’s consumer is turning to the internet to compare costs, read reviews and obtain information before making decisions. That’s why job 1 for any business should be to increase their web presence as much as possible. Social media is extremely effective and is much more affordable than traditional marketing.

In the News


When I was little my picture was in the local newspaper. I was so proud! When my grandma came to visit I showed her the newspaper with the picture in it and she said, “Sally it is not nice to brag about yourself. It is okay you showed this to me but you probably should not show it to other people”. Sorry Grandma, Love you, but I disagree!
