Invite people to your website, engage with people who are looking for your services, ask questions, answer questions, respond to feedback; good or bad it can serve you positively if handled in the right way, interact with news headlines and try and relate it to your service if possible. Engage and be social, make your work fun in the process.

Twitter
Facebook

Take baby steps, pick the right social platform for you and stick to it. As you begin to become more social savvy begin to expand and integrate more social media platforms to increase your target audience.

Set up an account for the new year - dont expect instant results or followers, social media is a free powerful marketing tool, followers and activity grows organically much like a website, continue to be proactive discover market gaps, market trends and contribute with people daily.

Tip #3 - Tell a story - Write a Blog

One of the best ways to get noticed on the web for your services is to write new and fresh content on a regular basis. Attach a blog to your website - write posts daily about upcoming trends and share the latest blog on social networks. Mention those all important key words related to your website in your posts and you´ll be the king of social before you know it.

Some of the best blogs out there for you to use:

  • Easy Blog - Contact us free for details
  • Tumblr
  • Blogger
  • Wordpress

It is important to keep your users engaged - keep your content company focused; writing about what you had for dinner is not the way forward for a super blog post. Keep it specific, fun and relevant to the point, keep your readers enthused - blogs dont always have to be lengthy mix it up with the occasional short and sweet. Share a relevant or interesting link or two.

Tip #4 - Theres no such thing as free

Make time for competitions within your company & share them throughout your social networks - Freebies are an ideal way to get your followers engaged, in return you can gain a unique follower base and a potential growth in clientele.

Make your subscriber or follower base work for your product - Who is tweeting about you? Who is sharing your website? Who is engaging with you? Discover who really appreciates what you do.

Tip #5 - Keep those addresses

Email addresses - Keep them all - Keep them accurate and have a genuine correct spelt name associated with them. Most important of all make sure they are your clients and your clients only.
