Get on Social Media now
I am a fan of social media, as you may have noticed.
What puts many off at the start is lack of traffic because it takes time to climb the ranks of google and get organic traffic. Who wants to wait a year for the first visitor?
What happens when traffic is non-existent or light. You question what you are doing even though you know it will take time you still hope that for you it will happen sooner.
SO .... whatever stage you are at join all the social media platforms you can. Then spend a few minutes a day on each to encourage followers.
With some, the more followers you have the bigger the potential audience. With others like Pinterest its more what you pin and whether others are attracted to the title or picture that raises your profile and visitors, not the amount of followers.
One of the best compliments I got was from a fellow crafter who had been selling online longer than me. She said, " wherever I go online whatever the platform, old or new, you have got on there first".
I was very proud of that.
My granddaughter as a teenage used to come to me and say, " Look, I have joined this amazing new platform" and I would say, "yes its good, I have been on there for a while". She would sigh and say "I should have known".
In the last few years though I haven't joined lots of new ones but I been remiss because I should have been doing so.
The sooner you join, the sooner you will start to build the accounts and the more it will help your business get off the ground.
So What Are You Waiting For?
Off you go and get joining, sitting here won't get your business seen faster.
