As we all know as entrepreneurs one of our main objectives is to get more customers. Let’s face it, social media is not going anywhere and many of us don’t know how to use it to sell our products and services. Many polls have estimated that there are over a billion people using some type of social media application be it Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, LinkedIn and others. Most of those users are actively using social media daily. Today there are many people leveraging social media to grow their business. If you are not using social media you are likely leaving potential customers in the dark about your services and therefore leaving money on the table.
If you are not on social media and don’t have a clue where to begin, trust me, you are not alone. There are many publications online and at your local book store to get more information about social media. Look into taking a workshop on social media for business. You may want to contact your local chamber of commerce, library or community college. There may be a social media seminar or workshop offered in your area to give you some insight on getting started. There is a difference between using social media to be social and for business. Remember just because your nephew Tweets all day and is very active on Instagram, doesn’t mean he can effectively communicate with your customers. Social Media applications are great tools to help you enhance your business. One of the best things about social media is most of it is free.
