Alyscia Takes Over OWNers Twitter Account


I had a powerful and encouraging conversation with publicist Meg McAllister yesterday. She’s a true professional and I highly recommend her if your able to afford a publicist. Meg really broke down the things I needed to hear, including the challenging aspects of being a self-published author with so little funds to spare. It left me thinking, I really need to get on the ball with this social media thing. It’s so much more than just having a page, but instead engaging your audience.

After our discussion ended, I received a phone call from an employee at Harpo Studios in Chicago, IL. She sent me a direct message in Twitter the day prior asking if I would like to be an OWNers ‘takeover’. For those of you hearing this for the first time, OWNers ‘takeover’ is when a #OWNAmbassador Twitter user is logged into and Tweeting via OWNers Twitter account.

Of course, I was more than happy to do the job.

Will anything more come out of being and OWNers ‘takeover’? Like getting more recognition for Feminine Transitions for example. I’m honestly not sure. Yet, I do know that the Universe puts everything into alignment in the right place, at the right time.

To that I say, I am on the right path.  That’s not a call that everyone receives. I’m more than happy to take the blessings that follow.

Additionally, I truly learned the art of engaging an audience. How coincidental is it that one of the very things I spoke about earlier with Meg I had to put into action? I am a visual and hands on learner so I got it completely.

Last night I tweeted for the Haves and Have Nots. Tonight will be Tyler Perry’s Love Thy Neighbor , airing every Wednesday at 9PM EST. Are you on Twitter? If so, follow me at @AlysciaCPhoto and @OWNers, the account I’m taking over, and join me for the tweet party. I’ll be logged on 15-30 minutes prior to the start of the show.

I hope to see you there!
