How Many Ways Can You Bring Social Media Into Your Writing Business?
If you find out the answer to that let me know. But seriously, my guest this week is Jeff Sieh and he gives us a great information on several. Jeff is the host of one of my favorite Google+ HOAs The Manly Pinterest Tips Show. He recently brought the show back after and I am thrilled that he did.
I didn’t lay this all out there on the show but here it is…
I started watching the Manly Pinterest Tips show last year and it allowed me to really see how I could use Pinterest in my business. Jeff brought on terrific guests and each week the show added another layer onto my understanding of the ins and outs of Pinterest. If you are reading this Jeff, thanks you for that.
If you have not set up a Pinterest account for your business, stop what you are doing and DO IT NOW! It is fun, effective, collaborative and a wonderful learning tool. Make sure that if you setting your account up as a business account that you certify your website! Visit my Pinterest for Business Board for more reasons why you should be on Pinterest and resources that can help you get started.
Facebook and Your Writing Business Recently I have been thinking about Facebook, I have not been active on Facebook for awhile now (like a couple of years). It was more of a time management decision than anything. I found that in my business it wasn’t helping me at all but now I am rethinking that decision. I probably won’t go back to using the business account but for The Writing Biz I KNOW it is valuable. Keep an eye out for the news that I am there, so you can be my friend and I won’t be so lonely!
LinkedIn is Far More Than a Place to Host Your Resume
Have you checked out LinkedIn lately? It is changing and evolving in some amazing ways. If you blog you MUST chack out the publishing platform. I was stunned at the amount of traffic my posts get on LinkedIn and the amount of traffic that they brought back to my website! If you would like to check me out on Linked in CLICK HERE.
