I HAVE SOME VERY IMPORTANT QUESTIONS FOR YOU!
How do you market your business? Remember marketing is NOT selling. Marketing is how you get people to know about your business and to understand what you are offering. Selling is closing the deal at an agreed price and scope of product or service.
Did you know that the majority of consumers will first look to find a product or service to meet their needs or do a job for them through a web search? Yes, of course you did, because that is exactly what you did when you last shopped. Think about how you went about the process of selecting the goods you wanted to consider.
I think you also know that you only looked at the first four or five results of your search or the ones that best answered your search criteria! Another fact is that over 98% of clicks following a search are only on the top four results.
Does your business get listed on the first page of Google or other comparative search engines? In social media, reach is of critical importance. It directly impacts how much your content and messages get shared. It increases your business' ability to get found and generate leads.
Leveraging Social Media Meeting
Social media, and social media marketing has seen an explosion and continues to expand, the reasons are obvious. Think of all the people you know, and ask yourself how many of those people are not on at least one of the following? Facebook, LinkedIn, Google+, Pinterest, Youtube, Instagram, Stumble and that’s just to name a tiny few. A massive proportion of people who use the Internet today engage in some form of social media.
Social media is full of potential if used correctly. The secret to success using these hugely popular sites is to concentrate on building a community of like-minded people.
I started and grew my business using social media…I know it is power and if you are reading this and we haven’t met then, there is the likelihood you are connected to me through social media.
This is the reason I hold Leveraging Social Media every month to help business owners gain skills and knowledge on how to maximize social media platforms for their business. This meeting is usually packed full with a lot of information to grow your business. If you are a newbie, expert or a geek this event is for you. Connect with others, share your expertise, and expand your contacts. Come learn what’s new and what’s to come.
We keep it small:
We keep each meeting small in other to effectively reach out to each attendee helping them answer their various questions so that they leave the meeting with answers to whatever problems they have come in with.
The event is always in a friendly environment, Come join us and explore the benefits of using social media to transform your business and increase sales.

What is your next action?
To sign up? To move your business forward and remove those barriers?
Still not convinced you should attend , look at the statistics below and questions people ask themselves daily .
Instagram grew by 50% between March and December 2014 and exceeded the 300 million user mark. This means that the photo-sharing social network is now bigger than Twitter (284 million) in terms of active users and, crucially, with much faster growth momentum. Instagram is already becoming a hot space for brands due to its amazing engagement rate
Tumblr’s active user-base grew 120% in the last 6 months of 2014. The network is apparently signing up 120,000 new users every day.
Facebook: 60% of their users sign in every day (compared to 46% of Twitter users) Over 80% of ‘other’ social network users also use Facebook.
YouTube: Average number of mobile video views per day is 1 billion. Question is…should we start be putting some of our marketing efforts in this arena? Of course yes…
Google+: Business pages are already available here and the users seem to be more professional than Facebook…
Twitter: The attention span of a consumer is getting shorter and shorter…they only want to give us about 9 seconds or less to catch their attention. Many marketers believe twitter works best for them.
Linkedin: users are wealthier than the other networks with a high percentage earning over £75000 PA
As of 2014:
· Approximately 1.8 billion Internet users have access to social networks;
· 170 million of which were located in the United States, and
95% of business owners are wasting hours of time online without getting any paying customers or referrals. Statistics http://www.statista.com/topics/1164/social-networks/
