Love Your Local Business for Valentine’s Day

Love-your-Local-Business-Co

Valentine’s Day is this weekend!

While we use the day to show the ones we love that they are a special part of our lives, there are others that are deserving of a little bit of love.

They are there for you at a minute’s notice. They are within a stone’s throw away from your homes and offices for your convenience. They are made up of people who use the same roads, send their children to the same schools, complain about the same taxes.

They are your local businesses. Show them some love this weekend.

Digital Networking Do’s and Don’ts: Social Media Posting

social_media_strategy111

Since you are here at Long Island Entrepreneurs, you probably know a thing or two about computers and the internet. You’ve signed up for most of the big social media networks. You’re probably set up a website for your company. Maybe you’ve even used some of those advertising credits that hosting companies offer, or even paid money out of your own pocket.

You’ve done all of the above, but you haven’t had the results that you wanted. You’re not alone. Because marketing yourself and your company on the internet is so easy and inexpensive, just about everybody is doing it, making your networking attempts seem more like registering in a giant phone book.

This is why we have broken down some “Do’s and Don’ts” in digital networking. Our first topic is posting in social media.

One of the first things you must do when you push forward into the social media landscape is post. It’s fine to set up an account on Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Instagram, Pinterest, or any of the other multiple social media networks and ask friends and family to like or follow you, but if you don’t post, the potential clients that don’t know you won’t be able to find you.

However, more is not better. Social media posts must be relevant to your business in both fundamental and creative ways. For instance, if you are personal trainer, you can post an article about the daily steps toward creating a healthy lifestyle. Not only are you marketing your part in that healthy lifestyle, but you are presenting your knowledge of the subject, knowledge other people may wish to share in their own networks. It is the share that brings in the new, potential clients.

Like I said, more is not always better. One of the quickest ways to get unliked or unfollowed is to post the same thing every minute of the day if possible. Try to set a schedule for posting, 1-3 times a day. Test different hours in the first week you start out and see when your posts received the most activity. This way, your posts will become efficient, and it can be an exciting part of your daily routine instead of an agonizing one.

Happy New Year!

happy_new_year

From all of us at Infinite Business Connections, we hope that the past year helped you grow personally and professionally, and wish for your continued success next year!

The new year may be symbolic, but it is a great way to reflect on where you are, where you have come from, and where you want to be. How can you tell how much you have developed, how much you have changed, how much you have improved your skills, than to see it based on the present and future. This works for both yourself and your business.

So take this time to celebrate your experiences, and prepare to build on those for the future!
