Current thoughts on Social Media
Plus it's playing such an important role in marketing your web based properties. Heck, even your brick and mortar ones too! Why, well let me tell you... Social Media or (SM) isn't new at all. What a shock but we have been doing business this way most of the human life time on this earth.
We always get to know people and if we like them then we have a level of trust with them. We ask their advice. We might ask them do they know a good meat market or dentist. We will take their suggestion over that of any paid ad!
So how do you use it for your business. Simple. Find the right social media channels for you and get on there. Start connecting and talking with other people. You have to remember a few things. First, every social media channel is like a country. It has it's own language and customs.
Second, it's a conversation not a sales pitch. You have to gain their trust before you would put out an offer. Now, if you are selling shoes for example you might ask for opinions on a particular shoe you have for sale. You will get opinions and you will get sales too. That is how it works in the simplest form. If you want to get into social media then do two things.
First, you might want to purchase me to professionally set up your social media channels. You don't need a ton of them and some will never make sense with your business. Second, let me run them for three months to get some following. Finally, I'll teach your or your staff how to run them.
