Four Things a Small Business Must Do in Social Media

Business owners often ask us what they should they be doing for social media their company. In our “expert” (LOL) opinion, this question cannot be glossed over, let alone without doing bonafide research. That being said, asking is the first step and so we will answer it with the help of social media expert Nicole Fletcher (follow her).

Here is Nicole’s quick list of what your company MUST first be doing to get into the swing of things – (source: Jacob Tyler)

1. Create a Facebook fan page and Twitter account and use them. Keep them updated with fresh, relevant content and bring in your personal network for growth.

Welcome to the Social Media Revolution!

At Catalyst House, we are beginning to embrace social media as a powerful marketing and branding tool – and, we’ve yet to think of one business that couldn’t benefit from some sort of social media component in their marketing and advertising mix.

However, there are still skeptics. One of the most common questions that we get from them is, “do you think it’s a fad?”

Watch this short exciting video – it paints a powerful picture of the rapid growth and pervasiveness of social media. The video is a stealth promo of last year’s best seller Socionomics by Eric Qualman and it is must reading for any serious business owner… but at least watch the 4-minute video, guaranteed to expand your horizons.

We believe that it’s here to stay…at least until the next paradigm shift occurs.  It’s completely changing the way businesses engage with their customers and is not slowing down.

And stay tuned as we research and share ways for small business owners to catch this new wave of business potential!
