Start Social Where You Live! Social Media Tip
We acknowledge that social is here to stay. We work on ways to engage our target audience and grow our followers every day. In a nod to an old adage “Charity begins at home” I have created a new adage: “Social begins where you live”.
We often don’t think about those closest to us, our friends, our families and our local businesses as those with whom we ought to share our handles. This is a great and often, untapped resource. You never know who your connections and followers may have connecting and following them: These secondary connections and followers could in fact be part of your targeted audience.
It’s often the simplest things we forget to do, or don’t think to do because it seems so simple.
When we make it easy for people to give us a helping hand, most are more than willing to do so. My suggestion to you is to create a document, or a list (List.ly is great for this) you can easily share, and that includes all your handles and links for all the social sites that you use both for personal and for your business.
I have named my List ‘Please join me on my social sites’. List each of the social platforms you use most, with all the handles related to that platform. Many of us have more than one handle for sites such as Twitter and Pinterest [some have both personal boards and business boards].
This seems like such a simple thing to do yet it can grow your audience exponentially.
Below I have listed my social sites and added the link to My List.ly List.
