Social Media is one of the best ways to get yourself out to your
target market. There are many social networking sites to choose from. Three of the most popular are Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn. If you are unsure of how to set up accounts for marketing your business, your Virtual Assistant can help.
Your Virtual Assistant can set up the accounts with the information you provide about yourself and your business. Your VA can add followers and friends within your target market and area of expertise. You can use Social Media to find joint ventures and partnerships within your industry as well.
Once that part is completed, your Virtual Assistant can post tweets and updates about you and your business while you interact with your followers and build relationships. To effectively use Social Media for networking and marketing, you need to spend time on their responding to replies and private messages.
One key to using Social Media to find new clients is to get to know the people you follow. Potential clients look for people they know, like and trust before they purchase anything. While your Virtual Assistant posts information about you and your business, you can spend your time getting to know your target market. That way your followers not only learn about you and what you do, they get to know you as well.
As they get to know you and what you do, they will be more likely to visit your site, read your blog, sign up for your free offer, and eventually purchase your products or services. Utilizing a Virtual Assistant to do the basic set up and business tweets allows you the time you need to focus on getting to know the people you wish to do business with as clients and JV partners.
