Ask any business owner “What is the most powerful and effective way to promote your business?”
9 times out of 10 they’ll say “Word of mouth.”
Now ask the same business owner “What does your social media presence look like?”
9 times out of 10 they’ll “What social media presence?!”
Well guess what… In 2012 social media IS word of mouth! It’s how your customers are communicating about everything, including you and your business NOW.
The great thing about social media is that it’s where the people are! Think about it. Thousands of people in your area – your potential customers – are online using the various social media platforms RIGHT NOW – this minute.
Facebook gets more page views each month now than Google; Twitter is the most brilliant tool to engage with people and millions are using it; LinkedIn provides the greatest professional networking facility known to man and You Tube provides the most incredible and under utilised video platform that can sky rocket your sales if used correctly.
The fact is that together these platforms are 21st century word of mouth.
Social Media is transforming the way the world does business. In your town and your city, this week. Today.
The implications are huge and the prizes are enormous for those businesses with the wisdom and foresight to get involved – properly – right now.
There is a window of opportunity now open which is likely to close rapidly in the near future. Even if you are one of the (very small) minority of business owners who has the technical knowledge and knows what to do to properly utilise social media across the different platforms to build your business, the reality is that you almost certainly don’t have the necessary time to devote to social media to do it properly.
But how do you navigate the social media maze if you don’t know exactly what to do & how to do it?
How do you ensure that your business is visible on the social media landscape and the biggest single opportunity to develop and grow your business since the arrival of the internet, doesn’t completely pass you by?
