Make the Most of Social Media Networking

Genecia Alluora Luo (pictured), founder of Soul Rich Woman (SRW) network and former Miss Singapore tells Việt Nam News reporter Phương Uyên that her mega mission is to empower Southeast Asian women to succeed in business.  Her aim is simple: change their lives for the better. Sounds very familiar to WEGG!

In the information age, to get in touch with customers, gain market share and arrange inventory, I [Genecia Alluora Luo] suggest the women make the most of social media networking, online shopping and delivery platforms. And by giving women entrepreneurs more access to capital, resources and investment opportunities, we can accelerate economic growth in the region, Việt Nam included.

Genecia hopes to encourage more and more women to advance and continue helping others run a [global] business successfully and make extra income, no matter how big or small.

For Evita Turquoise Robinson, Facebook Is the Capital of the Internet


Evita Turquoise Robinson, founder of the group, Nomadness Travel Tribe, has more than 10,000 members from all over the globe. The distinctiveness of her group is that while it is open to travelers of all ethnicities, it is primarily African American, age 25 to 40, with 80 percent women.  How did she build up such a following?  Social media was the key to the group’s growth.

“There are so many social media outlets: Twitter, Periscope, Instagram. Instagram and Periscope- — the live-streaming app — allow anyone to follow along on our trips,” she [Evita] said. “If the Internet was a geographic location, Facebook would be the capital. It is where everyone is. If you can start someplace where everyone is and then push out from that point, you have the opportunity to do something special.”
