Asking for help – Why you should!

17 Jul

I wanted to write a quick blog on why you shouldn’t be afraid to ask for assistance in getting your Blog / Social media sites etc “out-there”.

E.G.: You have just spent an hour or so creating a really informative piece for your company blog, its engaging, its interesting & its got some lovely offers on it for potential clients / customers. You post it to your blog & there it is, your masterpiece…

Now what?

Do you ask friends/ followers to share the post, do you actively request they Plus it (Google +), have you asked them to post it to Twitter? etc etc…

You would be amazed at how many blogs are just blocks of words, with no request to the reader to move it out into the world of social media.

blog postYou shouldn’t feel guilty about this, after all, this is what your blog is for… Its to engage people & to inform, you cant do this without it being shared / followed.

Also Google, the clever little thing that it is; is always looking for real human interaction & that’s exactly what follows & shares are, so the more you have the better your ultimate ranking will be.

Going forward, there are plenty of sharing tools out there, however at the beginning, there’s nothing better than the old fashioned human touch. This way you actually get to know your audience & customers, something many larger businesses have forgotten about over the last few years & something I truly believe us small businesses excel at..

However as you know by now, I believe you should be concentrating on you business & leaving the Social Media to a professional.

BUT not paying way over what you need to as BIGGER is not always BETTER and large agencies may not understand you if you are a small business  or just starting out.

If you would like any further info, please do not hesitate to contact me.
