Social media!

In my opinion social media is not the be all and end all of your business (depending on what your business is) If your business is all about Social media and you don’t use it then you might have a hard time trying to convince people that you know what you are talking about. There again if you are in manual labour such as painting and decorating or a mechanic, then, while Twitter may not be your thing, Facebook might be, and the reason that Facebook might be for you is that there are lost more “domestic” users on Facebook and more likely to be looking for your services. Is that narrow minded?
The above said, there is nothing wrong with having lots of social media accounts to protect your business name but once you have your name.

Should you decide that you want to get some business from using social media then here are some points to remember.

1. Whichever social media platform you decide on, one posting per day is not enough.
2. Because your target market may be following more than one account you need to give more information more regularly.
3. Social media is a full-time job. you can't just tweet or face now and then. Keep your audience hungry for more information.
4. Don’t have the time to do it? If you don’t have the time to do it properly then get someone to do it for you. There are many individuals out there who could do with the business, just don’t get ripped off paying lots of money for very little.

There are many companies out there who would gladly take your social media business away from you in return for some cash, unfortunately some of these companies just want your cash :-)

Here is an extensive list of social media websites https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_social_networking_websites

Personally I would stick to Twitter and Facebook and maybe google+
