How Social Media Can Help You Establish Expert Status
Filed Under social media
When you achieve expert status with your business you will grow by leaps and bounds, but getting to that point is the hard part. You can do all you want but if it’s not the right thing you won’t establish that status.
One of the best ways to establish expert status with your business is to use social media sites. These would include, but are certainly not limited to Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn. There are hundreds of social media sites, but these are a few of the most popular sites to use.
The best thing you can do when you want to establish expert status through social media is to have a plan in place. This plan needs to include every step of the process you plan to use and it’s important to include specific numbers so you know exactly what you need to do and how you plan to make it happen.
While you may thing advertising your business is the only way to make it happen, it’s important to know that’s not the case. Yes you need to advertise, but the most important thing to do is help others and communicate with them. You need to help your followers so they feel comfortable with you. When you help them, they’ll begin to trust you and they’ll feel comfortable with you and then they’ll look at your business.
Studies have shown for every one advertising post you make on these sites you need to post five to seven posts that are non business related. These should not have anything to do with your business at all including blog posts and articles. It’s ok to post those and you should, but it’s also important to communicate with others without the talk of your business.
Trust is the key to your success and social media is a good way to make that happen, but you must do it the proper way or it’s not going to happen. When you follow these steps you’ll find the ways you need to follow to establish expert status with your business.
