Social Media Is Changing Online Business
If you are a business owner in 2011 chances are you have some type of social media page. But how effective are your efforts? Most business owners do not see the value in putting resources into managing an ongoing social media campaign. I am here to explain the money involved in having a strong social media presents, and how to get started on a budget.
Tips To Getting Started:
- Hire a local college student to create at least 10 accounts to the major social networks, such as Facebook, Linked In, Twitter, Blogger, Squidoo ect.
- If you are on a tight budget you can sign up for these accounts on your own, and use free software like tweet deck to set up a months worth of automated posts.
- Invite friends and past customers to join the social groups you create for your business. The more fans/ friends you have the more people will notice your brand. You can even buy friends by the thousands on websites such as fiverr.
- Whenever you have the opportunity to take photos of your company in action, or at work in the community post the pictures to your social sites. People respond well to companies and brands who they can connect with visually.
