Stop Trashing Social Media!
Beware mini rant.
Getting fed up with the way social media is dismissed as no good.
It's always talk about 2 options, organic traffic and paid advertising.
WHY would you pay and keep on paying when you have excellent tools at your fingertips.
It is an excellent tool BUT you need to take the time and effort to build it up.
Once you get to 10,000 or so followers on twitter it takes on a life of its own and followers just keep growing. You do still need to work at it, just like anything else.
If you make the effort of a little time every day you will gain new followers every day. Just follow and have followers in your own field, that is pointless, you are preaching to the converted.
You don't need to waste hours on there, keep it to a minimum and just do what you are there for.
I share my posts to Linked In, Instagram, Pinterest, Twitter and Tumblr. The more your posts get out there, the more likely they are to be seen and get interested people coming to read your posts.
