3. Social Profile Image & Signatures
Make sure that every site where you use a profile signature has a link back to your website or your latest achievement (ebook, pdf, video, webinar).
4. Product Launches
Your ebooks and pdf’s can be used to create promotion launches, virtual book tours, and guest blogging posts. It doesn’t have to be a big book. Just a small how-to of tips & tricks. Then post about it all over social media.
5. Outsource It!
Many of these tasks can be outsourced to your virtual assistant. Today outsourcing is the number one way entrepreneurs use to save time.
– Expert research and detailed spreadsheet reports.
– Find and interview the experts in your subject.
– Schedule, proofread, edit and draft your posts on Social media.
– Watch the video and see why a virtual assistant can increase your sales, while saving you time.
Remember, if you don’t have an assistant, you are an assistant.
It’s just a matter of good planning, good attendance and making sure you’re following up with the right people. Social media has a lot of pros & cons, but if you use these 5 tips and tricks you should realize the benefits and start building a better business.
