Are you confused about which social media option is right for you?
You’re not alone – the noise around social media is getting deafening, along with the pressure to get involved in all of it. But wait…
While social media doesn’t cost money, it’s not strictly FREE – you have to spend time and effort on building, learning about and maintaining it – and we all know time means money. This is especially true when you are at the fragile early stages of your business!
The good news is that it isn’t necessary to get involved with all social media, and that different social media benefit your business in different ways and connect you with different types of people. Sounds like an important thing to get out-of-the-way at the beginning right? It is!
That’s why I have created this brief video to take you through the main options for social media with options and have compared them like for like. This will help make your decisions moving forward MUCH easier!
Social media for your business and personal life
You may already use Facebook and Twitter in your social life, but it’s important to understand how using social media for business is different. As such, you may find that although you prefer Facebook in your own life, Twitter is great for business.
Do I need social media as well as a website?
Simple answer: yes! Although any social media site can be great for creating a relationship with prospects, don’t rely on it as your sole platform for communicating with them. It is still important to develop your online presence with your own website. In this video I’ll point out the main reason that you want to keep your own website.
