Small Businesses and Social Media

Got ideas for an event or function?

Are you having a launch or a seminar, a talk, a party, new products coming in or a sale?

Yes do some e-marketing and send information to your clients about what is happening in your company, shop, small business or even if you are working from home.

May I help you set up a blog so you can add blog posts about whatever your business is up to.?You can add widgets, add pictures, add a following button, tag words, labels, a visitor counter and set up a Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn account and inform your customers/clients and locals about the work you do.

I realise that running a business on your own means you have less time for marketing. Try to set aside an hour a day for this. Come in, answer emails, address your daily tasks and issues, then send an update. Write a few posts over a week and then upload it onto your site when you have a bit of down time.

Save all your photos in labelled files (yes organisation is key) so when you have 15 or 20 minutes you can quickly upload photos onto your blog, site and whichever social media site you have decided to use to continue marketing and promoting your business.

Social Media, SMO, is becoming as important as answering emails, sorting out bills, doing accounting, ordering stock, meeting clients and advertising. If you have a small business and want to be part of something bigger and which means that you can find contacts, make recommendations, help others AND build your business, then this is an easy way of marketing and keeping your clients and consumers in the know.

And if this all sounds a bit too much for you; contact me and we'll set it up together and I can write blog posts, add widgets, build your business both online and socially.
