Too Busy For Social Media?

Social Media can boost your business.

Social Media can boost your business.

Social Media for business can be hard to get to grips with.  I use it for social things, which is what is was created for.  But I don’t really use it for business, which is what it has been used successfully for by others.  I just find there are more things to do in the day which do not involve me being on social media, so when I do get on it I just want to chill out and use it for social things.

I admire people who can build social media time into their working hours and not be lured into the social side of it, instead using the time for purely business related stuff.  When I get on it all I want to do is catch up with friends, read a bit of light hearted stuff and generally play around.

I recently was given the opportunity to review a product about using social media to boost your business.  It’s called Smartt Social Media.  People often talk about the power of social media but unless you know HOW to use it effectively for your business you won’t get the great results that really are possible.

I was impressed with the depth that Smartt Social Media goes into to share the different social media platforms and how they can best be used.  I learnt a lot about them that I didn’t know, having always used them for, well, social stuff, rather than business.  It’s a whole different ball game!

So if you feel you are behind with social media and you want to catch up and propel your business forwards then go and grab a copy of Smartt Social Media now!  Just click the link HERE!

Enjoy the journey!

    Hey Mandy,

    Social media has the power to get you the exposure you have never thought about. I have 11+ LinkedIn followers and it’s because of my strategies.

    But to do that, you need a few tools. It’s important to keep your presence to make it to the right point.

    I am looking forward to knowing about Smarttsocialmedia.

    Hey Mandy,
    I was expecting more information about your recommended product in this article. Their website is bit confusing to me.
    It seems like they are providing some guides also and plugins also.

    Anyways I always try to boost my social media reach by using various viral techniques and sometimes even contacting viral pages to promote my social assets.

    I would like to know more about this product.
    Thanks,

    Hey Mandy,

    Social media works best when we’re able to be active consistently. Problem is, things come up that impede our ability to hop onto social media at regularly scheduled times. We need to have a unique angle – something that’s different, special, and tailored to our particular audience.

    We’ve been seeing a massive shift in what it means to be effective on social media over the last few years. One challenge that marketers are facing in this new era of social media marketing is connecting with audiences on an individual and personal level. The best way to do this is through creating social media campaigns that take customers through a funnel from stranger, to fan, to buyer, to advocate. Eventually, thanks for sharing your wonderful experience with us.

    With best wishes,

      Hi Amar, thanks for visiting. I agree that being consistently active is the way to make social media work. I find myself too distracted by the social side of it for it to be of any great value to my business and some of the sites I don’t even understand, but I’m hoping to get to grips a bit more with it after reading this guide!

    I’m with you about social media, I use it for being, uh…social. Have did various things to link social content back to my blog – didn’t really get any traction worth pursuing. Thanks for the link to the training.

    Interesting site, I’ve just checked it out! The balance between business and social on my SM accounts is one of my biggest challenges – it’s SO distracting! I wish there was a way to separate the two. I need strict to do lists to keep to my daily tasks or else it’s anarchy!

    HI Mandy
    We have so many social media platforms to choose from, it’s worth hunting round for the one(s) that are a good match for our businesses and our personality and skills. I need to delve more into Instagram because I’m expecting it will suit me.
    We can also look at repurposing posts across different platforms, so we can get multiple values from one post if we set it up right.
    Thanks for getting me thinking on this. I have more work to do…
    Cheers

    Hi Mandy,

    Social media is a great place to do business. It depends on the site; if it is LinkedIn, we can be more business like. However, if it is Facebook, then we need to be a little more personal with a business touch.

    I do use Facebook boosted posts to advertise also.

    Hi Mandy,

    I have to admit, I just started using social media when I started my blog. There’s so much to learn. Which sites should I be spending my time on. It can definitely be a handful.

    I am finally starting to learn which social networks are actually sending me the traffic. Which ones I should be spending most of my time.

    To tell you the truth, I’ve learned everything that I know through trial and error. I am always reading articles and blog posts that will help me improve my use of social media to grow my blog and meet other bloggers.

    Right now, Facebook seems to the best way for meet other bloggers. I’ve never heard of Smartt Social Media, thanks for the information. I’m glad to see everything is working out for you.

    Have a great one

    Social media is over rated and too much of a trend. It distracts people from minding their businesses when they’re worried about reviews and likes. Recent attention is on managing a social presence in order to increase serp rankings when there is no real evidence of connections.
