Let people know you're a social media user - shout it from the rooftops
If you are using these social media platforms and taking the time to leverage them – then you want to make sure that world and his wife knows they can find you out there. Let them know you’re out there and make it easy for them to find you with icons and links.
Promote your social media presence at any given opportunity. If you have a website – make sure you clearly have links to all your social media profiles. So many people miss a golden opportunity and leave off social media icons or shove them in a tiny corner of their website where no one can see them. You can have a giant ‘follow me’ at the top of your homepage if you so wish – make the most of it.
You could have a ‘like’ or ‘tweet’ button next to every blog post article you post. One click and they’re yours to impress.
You can also encourage followers/likes/YouTube subscribers/ LinkedIn connections in many other places.
All ‘communications’ and ‘touch points’ be they ‘online or offline’ – should also consider the social media channels. Including follow me@ Twitter names on business cards, letterheads, invoices, promoting blogs on sites and in ads etc. Email footers in Forums should include links to blogs, twitter and sites:
Follow us on Twitter @handle
Link with us on LinkedIn
Become a fan on Facebook
If your customers, potential clients, business leads, family, friends - don't actively look for you then they'll never know you exist. Humans are inheritly lazy - so don't give people the excuse that 'they didn't know you tweeted'. Make it dead simple for them to follow/link/like with you. Provide them with a little bird to click on and then there aren't any excuses.....Shout it from your online rooftops
