  • Small business social media activity is essential. Comment on your own business (if adding a thought) and other blog posts; use Facebook, Google +, LinkedIn, Pinterest and Twitter on a regular schedule.
  • Have employees, family, and friends LIKE and follow the business on Facebook, Google + and Twitter. Send everyone an e-mail with the hyperlinks.
  • Brick and mortar businesses should place a colorful “attention getting” sign in the front window announcing the Facebook URL and any other social media presence.
  • Place at sign at the reception desk or waiting area with the Facebook, Google+ and Twitter URL’s.
  • Put Facebook, Twitter, Google+, and blog site URL on business cards, e-mail signature, stationary, website and newsletter.
  • It is important to place (live URL’s) Facebook, Blog Post and Twitter information in the signature box on all the outbound e-mails. This is an important and necessary content marketing strategy.
  • When employees are on the phone or e-mailing clients, have them mention the business social media presence and have them have them conclude the conversation, e-mail, and SMS with, “Have you found and liked us on Facebook (Twitter, Google+) yet?”
  • Consider having an online contest (great on Facebook) for your audience or have a giveaway or discount that can be promoted across Facebook, Google+ and Twitter.
  • Consider having a Facebook or Social Media “Meet Up” event “offline” at your offices or at a local café for clients and potential clients; make it a quarterly informal networking event.
  • Encourage friends, family, neighbors, and business associates to like, follow, SHARE or continuously read what has been posted on all of your business platforms. Send them the links or articles via e-mail when the subjects are considered of value to them.
  • Attend as many local networking Chamber or like events as possible. It is NOT what you know or who you know; IT IS WHO KNOWS YOU.
