Some Social Media Hot Tips

I hosted a last minute (because I love your business) social media master class recently and this is the email I shared with the business women afterwards. Some of these business women were completely new to social media and others had dappled and some would even say they were getting some results. BUT they all left saying “Wow thank you!” and I loved the way one business women said “Oh now I get how to not make it take up all my time!”

So I thought I would share my top tips for them as they move forward using social media as part of their marketing stratetgy:

“I’m aware that we didn’t have as long as would have liked to go into more detail, but I hope that we were able to concentrate on what to say, when to say it, to get people interacting with you, wanting to sign up to your mailing list, reading your blog, etc, so that you are able to gain new leads and more importantly sales. 

With the use of Hootsuite it would be good to hear that you aim to get tweets, etc automated and if you were my coaching client, when you intend to put into the diary to actually do it. Even if its just to write a one week plan of what actions you could take. Everyone has to start somewhere! 

Remember to test and measure your results. Are people engaging with what you say? If not trial other times of the day.

With Facebook and Linkedin – think about what groups it would be good to join and engage with other peoples conversations. And if you want to post your profiles to me on any social media platform to discuss please feel free to.

In the future it is worth considering;

Using Eventbrite for events (because it can be so easily integrated into Facebook and helps you track where leads have come from.

Using Mailchimp, again its easy to share on your social media.

Its also good to share your press releases online (once published) for many reasons, but I will save that for another day, as well as a ton of other stuff!

Its all about sharing useful relevant content that makes people want to be involved in all that you do. Share your passion!

Here are some blogs that maybe useful too;

 And remember don’t be frightened or put off by what I share here its all about you personally moving forward, not about all being the same. Social media just like your marketing is an ever evolving thing and that is why I like teaching business women those skills so that you have them for life and constantly grow and adapt with the ever changing markets.

Keep in touch and let me know how you get on and if you feel I can assist further please do not hesitate to contact me,

And they say the proof is in the pudding, here is the little conversation that I had with one fabulous Essex business woman I’ve had the pleasure of knowing for years, after last nights session it was great to see Kate Nudds from Professional Choice Recruitment online – boy was she keen to put things into practice!;

Your Marketing Production Line

https://mandiie-holgate-business-life-coach.teachable.com/p/mandie-s-marketing-production-line

I love this simple tool for ensuring I’m selling well. Am I talking to the right people in the right ways to ensure they are interested, engaged and buying.

I’ve been on holiday in August and sold tickets to events in December that I wasn’t even promoting.

I’ve gained speaking engagements, coaching clients and even free PR opportunities and I’ve been sat in the hottub.

I’d never share something I didn’t know worked and I’ve worked with thousands of businesses to help them sell well, increase profit, engagement and sales so I know this works.

You can ditch the sales talk, and the trying. Get this right and your passion sells your wares.

Want more? You can now take the course. At your own pace to help you get in the press, get seen, get sales, heck you could even get a book deal (I did!) this really works, its the backbone of so many clients in so many sessions. 

The new how to find your target audiences and get them buying will back this up too. Knowing what to say to whom, when and how is imperative.

Would you like more support to make this work?

This online course means you can work at your own pace and utilise the tools my clients use with me to get massive results. Like Nicole from Ace 24 Consultancy who increased sales to their ideal monthly target within 3 days, and reached the ultimate “let’s think big” year goal in 3 weeks. (She really likes me!)

Or Mr X who asked for their first 6 figure contract – and got it.

Or Mrs X who went from part-time business owner to full-time company with offices and staff in one year!

I don’t hold back with the tools and techniques for another day, it’s all here, I just want you to succeed!

What could it do for you. Learn more, book it, start to see what it could do for you here. I’d love to be helping you too here.

And if you are an INsider then I can help you every day on the confidential group too and give you discounts on these courses too.
