When it comes to social media, I’ve decided that Virtual Work Team will use what works for our business. While we’ll always implement any new social networking page on behalf of a client, the experts advise that you shouldn’t try to join every single social outlet there is. Instead, you should focus on what works for your business or brand. I’ve therefore decided for now, to stick to what I call “The Big Four” Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIN and YouTube (watch for new videos this month). They work best for us and we’re very pleased with the results of being on those sites. As a business owner, you want to make sure you’re not only keeping all your social media sites current, but that they are providing the exposure your business or brand needs.
With that being said, I have an open mind to what’s new and poppin’ for business owners when it comes to social media. I’m sincerely looking into Pinterest because of what one report has said about this website. A study was done that indicated the Pinterest sends more new traffic to websites than Google+. Here’s the direct quote from the article: “Pinterest drove more referral traffic to sites in January than Google+, Reddit, YouTube, LinkedIn and MySpace all combined” read the article here. So have you used Pinterest? Have you noticed that it’s of benefit to your business? How often do you pin something there? Inquiring minds want to know. Please leave your comments on the blog and feel free to also answer us Twitter @virtualworkteam and on Facebook; I’ll respond to all answers personally. Thanks!
P.S. Here’s a video to help you get started on Pinterest and to learn about using the Pinterest Gift Store and even Pinning Videos. Click here to view.
