Promote your business with Social Media

Have you considered using social media to promote your business?
I bet you’ve already started seeing your competitors using it – and if you haven’t – now is the time to get started!

Did you know

  • Almost all social networkers use Facebook. In fact, as of September 2013, 71% of adults using the internet use Facebook.
  • Around 60% of Facebook users sign into their account everyday compared to 46% of Twitter users.
  • Average Twitter users spend three hours per month on Twitter and since it began over 300 billion tweets have been sent.
  • More than 2 business users sign-up for LinkedIn every second.

Social-Media (3)The chances are your competitors are already involved on social media, which means your potential social media traffic and conversions are being poached. Don’t let your competitors get ahead of you. If your competition is not involved on social media, there’s even more of a reason to get started—the field is open.

Without social media, your inbound traffic is limited to people already familiar with your brand and individuals searching for keywords you currently rank for. Every social media profile you add is another path leading back to your site, and every piece of content you syndicate on those profiles is another opportunity for a new visitor. A good social media stream has also been shown to improve the conversion rate of existing visitors to your website, as they will take your busy social content into account when judging your competence and professionalism.

Many business owners don’t have the time to write regular and engaging content for their social media feeds however now you don’t have to worry.  We are offering a service that takes the heavy lifting out of social media leaving you time to run your business safe in the knowledge that your social media feeds are active with recent, interesting and amusing information about your business.

If you are concerned about what we will write about your business then please don’t be.  We work from a business profiler that you complete and your website to put together your core sales messages then we add into the mix relevant and interesting hints, tips, facts and trivia to put the fun into your social media pages.

We also include lots of links back to your website and relevant hashtags to encourage new followers. We can even post professionally edited images that make your social feeds look awesome and attract more attention.

So how much does this cost?  

The price is cheaper that you may think.  We have a range of packages that start from just £49.95 per month. We are so confident you’ll love our service we don’t tie you into a contract.

The sooner you start, the sooner you reap the benefits. Social media is all about relationship building, and it tends to grow exponentially as your followers tell their friends, and their friends tell their friends, and so on. The sooner you start, the sooner you’ll be able to start growing that audience.

To help get you started we are offering NO SETUP  FEE during October.
