THREE POPULAR SOCIAL NETWORKING SITES YOU SHOULD DEFINITELY THINK ABOUT JOINING
Please note that these are my personal favourites. They are well worth considering for different reasons, which I shall reveal as we take a quick look at each one. So let’s take the guided tour, shall we?
The biggest social networking site out there today. And it doesn’t mind you promoting your business either – the right way, which is why it gets on my top three list.
You can join by proclaiming that you are a business and opening a business account, but you should be aware that you can’t then have a personal account as well. The rules regarding this are quite complex, so it’s worth checking out the help section before joining.
If you want significant results for less work, then Twitter is the site for you. Why write a long message to people who are interested in what you have to say when 140 characters will do?
That’s all you get to communicate with on Twitter, but it makes it easy to keep busy on the site. A minute or two here and there and you will soon have plenty of followers hanging onto your every word.
Some people have even created a series of necessarily short pieces of advice, labelling them ‘1 of 12’ and so on, to create interest. It works well, too, and simply experimenting with using the 140 character limit to your advantage can produce some good results.
Rapidly expanding and now owned and backed by Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg. More of an image based sharing site, but they have recently allowed video. This is still a great platform for promoting your business.
Instagram works well for getting products seen, but direct links are not yet allowed. Links can be in profile, but there is a paid advertising option that works through Facebook Advertising.
