Your online presence is more important than ever. Facebook, Twitter and Blog presence is a must for any growing business.
If your company has a social media presence – be sure they are all linked together. Link your facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and blog accounts together. Just be sure not to use the same post on each networking site, as if you have followers that follow you in different areas, you don’t want them to get the same message everywhere.
Types of posts to make on social networks:
- What’s new with your business
- Your thoughts on an issue in your line of business
- Showcase of your work
- Referring other businesses you work with
