Use Social Media to Get Some New Attention for Your Business — 46 Comments

  1. This is a great post. Social media is so important these days and such a great way to get involved with your fans.

  2. I know social media is soooo important for growing your brand but I’m really bad about it. It’s actually one of my goals for this year, to social media my stuff better 🙂

  3. I use social media as well but sometimes not as faithful as I could.
    I totally forgot I was even on Instagram until I found it on my phone (oops) and G+ I used more when I was blogging on blogger. Time to come up with a new strategy to get everything working together.

  4. I REALLY think that social media is THE WAY to get your business “out there”. I wish Instagram was a little ‘better’ though. I think they should allow your links to be clickable. Much better advertising that way.

  5. This is a great post for small business to begin the transition into the social media world. Awesome overall explanation of each platform.

  6. I use all of these social media outlets and they help, Facebook used to be my top traffic supporter but it was dropped and is now Twitter. Great resources to have – thank you for sharing!

  7. What a great post for those learning about social media! As some of your other readers have stated, my goal this year is to really utilize Google +. I feel much more confident with the others.

  8. Great post! I’m a social media manager for a homeschool math company and it tremendously helped his business this year being active on Facebook, Twitter, G+ etc!

  9. I use all the social media outlets to promote my blog. I would love to get more familiar with StumbleUpon. I have heard it is great for social media promotion, but it still confuses me a bit.

  10. My social media reach has grown a lot the last couple of years. Twitter and Pinterest are my two favorite platforms at the moment.

  11. I’ve been working much harder on using them to their best advantage, or at least better than I was using them a year ago or so. The problem is time!

  12. Pinterest is my #1 referrer so I focus a lot on that (I have a craft/home blog so my content does well there). I put more time into FB than G+ last year and I think that was a mistake so I’m putting more effort into G+ and Hometalk this year

  13. I use all of the social media outlets you mentioned to promote my blog and business, as well as for personal use. I think it’s very important to always remember when posting on social media that even if you’re not specifically talking about your blog or business, you’re always representing it, so be careful what you post 🙂

  14. I think it’s very important to use social media nowadays to attract attention to your business. I know that my blog would not be where it is today if I wasn’t active on social media!

  15. Great advice all around. I use them all but I think Instagram is the one that I use the least for business. In all honestly, it sometimes bothers me to see a bunch of non-personal things on my feed so I limit that.

  16. I use all of these, but sometimes get so frustrated by Facebook and how it chooses who sees my post. I need to start using G+ more often, I heard it will be the highest ranking site in the future…

  17. I have such a love hate relationship with social media. It can be such a great tool though and businesses that don’t recognize that I think are ultimately hurting themselves.

  18. So, I really need to learn more about Google + so that I can use it to be more organized and interconnected. I already use gmail – I could be much more efficient in 2014. Thanks for the new info!

  19. I use social media a lot, mainly G+, Pinterest and FB. I have to learn about how to be better at Twitter and maybe create and Instagram account too.

  20. Social media is so incredibly important to a business of any size. Don’t jump in and try to do everything at once though, find where your audience is spending most of their time and start your focus there.

  21. I enjoy facebook, and I have discovered google+ is the best way to be “found” on the ‘net. My goal this year is to really press into google+ and not as much on facebook. I enjoy pinterest, too, for pictures, but I haven’t dabbled in instagram. twitter? Maybe I’m too old for that!!! It’s going to be a fun year!

  22. I currently do a lot of Facebook and Twitter. I haven’t totally gotten into Instagram and Google+ or even Pinterest. I know I’m going to have to get the hang of them soon since so much people are using them. I guess I may also need a handbook for dummies on those.

Tell me what you think.
