Small business people and solo-preneurs need to tell their stories to their current customers, their potential customers, and to the media. That includes social media – your online network of friends and fans.
How does this happen? Through these services.
Scheduling social media posts in advance is a great way to save time and efficiently maintain a presence online. Facebook has a schedule post feature for personal and business accounts, and HootSuite is an effective tool for managing and pre-scheduling multiple social media updates. Because not everyone can be on their smart phone, tablet or computer all the time!
All three tips are great, but especially #1. Read your emails before you hit send!
Thank you so very much! I learned so much from you and am beyond appreciative! So much so, I implemented your advice on verbiage on my first phone call out today and GOT THE BUSINESS!!! I had some sort of weird block and you gave me a much needed kick in the pants on my verbiage and it’s already paying off! Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!
