Recently, I made my first plunge into social media for the purpose of business. I help organize a local event management and production company – everything from finding local entertainment, talent and labor to now working to setup their social media platforms. This is the first time that I’ve had to do this on a professional level but my lack of inexperience, along with no ‘professional’ education, has me rather nervous! However, I do have experience with social media itself so I am hopeful that if we buy twitter followers at http://buytwitternow.net for her new profile, we’ll be able to get things into motion.
The important thing is going to be able to interconnect all the social media platforns in order to get the word out. Read more
As someone who runs my own business, I have to try to work hard to keep up with new ways to bring in enough customers to keep my business afloat. I have a website, and every once in awhile people find my business that way. But because many new people were not finding me online, I wondered for awhile if keeping and paying for the website was worth it. I was at a networking event and mentioned my dilemma to someone else, and they told me I really needed to find an expert SEO service to get help. You learn something new every day, and I’m glad I discussed it with someone.
I worried that the cost to get help for my business site would cost a lot of money. After all, I have had to spend thousands of dollars in the past just to get my business advertised in local media. I was pretty surprised that the cost would only be a little over $100. It sounded too good to be true, but I had been told by my peer at the networking meeting that the service would be worth it. So, I decided to give it a try.
The company explained that the work they would do for me wouldn’t get my page found overnight, but that I would see a difference in how I would show up in search engines within about a week or so. They also said that I would see an even bigger difference in a couple of month’s time as well. It was in their hands, so I let them get to work.
After just a few week’s time, I began to get inquiries through my site about my products from people who were not previous customers. I asked each of them how they found my site, and three of them stated they found me on the first page of a search they did. Wow, the service was working, and it still is!

Ever since internet marketing started becoming so popular several years ago, some marketing professionals have had a hard time coming up with new ideas and keeping up with customer demand.
