Q Social Media February News

February 14, 2012

Welcome to the Q Social Media February Newsletter, top tips for marketing online and upcoming social media training events.

Top Tips:

1) Complement Networking – whether you are at networking events, trade shows, conferences etc you are potentially meeting people that you can connect and stay in contact with online. At the very least many business professionals are now on LinkedIn out of the 3 key social media platforms (Twitter and Facebook being the other two).  By being active and engaging on these platforms, this helps to build relationships over time, build trust and lead to new customers, suppliers, business partners, referrals etc.

2) Promote as Expert – establish yourself above the crowd, there are probably many businesses offering similar services as yourself. One way to distinguish yourself, is as an industry expert in your field and thus draw people in to you over time, known as inbound marketing. Just like I am now in providing these top tips to help establish myself as an industry expert in social media and online marketing. There are people looking all the time for the services you provide, help them choose you over others with useful helpful advice. I often find it leads to referrals as well.

Alternatively see our events below for hands-on workshops and presentation based seminars with Q&A sessions.

Social Media Management Service – working with Marie Leverett (our Social Media Manager) we can provide local businesses with a managed service where you can outsource the day to day activities to us.

We look to work closely with clients to help engage their business online to their customer base to raise online profile and to help lead generate over time. Monthly catch-ups and reports.
