Smart Content Updates

[box type="info"] My Niece’s Boyfriend’s Cousin’s Roommate’s Son Just Set Up All These Social Networking Profiles. Now What?[/box]

I get this question at least once a week. Actually, that might be a slow week, because the fact is that the majority of business owners have an approach to social networking that is close to pin the tail on the donkey. Pin in hand and blindfolded they amble to the donkey with no clue what they are doing.

The fact is that I did not always understand how to properly use Twitter to grow my business either. For that matter, Facebook, LinkedIn, and other social networks also seemed like strange places where no REAL business took place. Every ten years I am wrong, mark this date down in your calendar. It will not come for another 10 years.

Man With A Plan!
What I did have when I started out was a plan. Actually, it was more of a daily ritual, which provided me the consistency I needed to push my social networking in the right direction. Every day I would make sure that I would post on Twitter at least twice a day. Then I copied one of my posts to Facebook. Finally, I connected LinkedIn and Twitter.

Good News! I Decided To Add You To My Daily Ritual!

Then I made an important discovery. I realized that I could help others by making them part of my rituals. That is when I decided to start writing tweets for others.

So here is the system I arranged.Have the clients tell me what they want from a proprietary 17 point system I created. Then just write tweets and updates based upon this system for maximum social networking success. Show the tweets or updates to the clients for approval. Schedule everything over the desired period of time.

Smart Connections

[features_box_paper_white width="75%" + border="2px"]Do you enjoy the occasional 10 hour binge to find great LinkedIn connections?[/features_box_paper_white] 
Maybe you went into business, so you could stay up late into the night following people on Twitter and then waking up early in the morning to connect with professionals on LinkedIn?
Perhaps, you wanted to actually build a business, so you could spend more time with your family or just taking part in the activities in life that excite you. As a business owner, we owe it to ourselves to create a better life for our family and ourselves.
That is why we came up with Smart Connections. You get to tell everyone how smart you are, as we gladly search through LinkedIn finding the most compatible connections for your business.

 Warning: Using Social Networking May Lead To Increased Sales!

You just set up your dream business.

Business Cards social networking check mark
Marketing Plan. Marketing Plan.

Where is the marketing plan?

The fact is that starting up a new business is easier today than it has been at any other time in our nation. The challenge with that is there is more competition than ever and less avenues to connect with prospects.

The government has a Do Not Call that has hundreds of millions of names with people that you are not allowed to call. Television and Radio Ads are prohibitively expensive. Targeted mail campaigns start with the cost of a $.44 per mailer stamp. At least you can still advertise in newspapers until they all go out of existence.

According to the Small Business Association, 2/3 of all business do not survive past two years. The facts are sobering for budding entrepreneurs that a few missteps could lead their dreams astray. That is why having the right game plan from the beginning is crucial.

I have been working with Andy Nathan and Smart At The Start for social networking strategy for Send Out Cards Business. He has been really interested in finding out about the business in order to make sure that they are appropriate and something that people will respond to when they are on the various social media platforms.

Who Else Wants To Have Their Website Live In Internet Obscurity?
Everyone told you to be a business professional you need to have a website. So, you did it. Then the “experts” mentioned that your business card would not look professional without the site listed. So, you did that as well. You submitted your site to Google just like that article told you to do. The question then has to be.
“Why in the world are the only 5 site visits from my mom, Nigeria and Indonesia?”

The idea of “build it and they will come” is obsolete. The facts are that there according to Whois there are over 131 million top level domains (.com, .net, .info, etc) on the internet today. Unless, you are creating a new niche you need to have a way to get interested readers to your site who will want to buy your goodies.
Ten years ago there were only 31 million sites online. A fraction of those were active. it was possible to set up a site and have traffic come pouring in. However, today you need to have more than a hope and prayer if you want to make sure your website investment is successful.
If you believe you deserve more than a lucky glance from someone in Indonesia then we can help you do this with ease. Our team of SEO experts have spent hundreds of hours testing out the best strategies to boost your traffic as we determine the best strategy for you.
