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!
Enjoy the journey!
