Small Business Social Media Tips Galore and a Great New Web Site Service
A few months ago I talked John Phillippe’s ear off of Zsalvo design — but he asked for it! Â John contacted me to chat about social media strategies for small business and I handed out a TON of tips.
Here are just a few highlights:
- Set your marketing objectives first! Use Scott Allen’s The Virtual Handshake as a guide.
- Focus on just those social media sites that will help you achieve your objectives.
- Automate using tools like TweetDeck and HootSuite.
- Manage your time
- and More.
Great to All-In-One Web and Social Media Offer – You Will DIE For
During that conversation, John had told me that he was launching a new kind of web service. Â He was looking for ways to make it easy and affordable for small businesses to get in the online game. Â And he has absolutely done it. Â I’m telling you that this is an offer that will make any busy small business owner salivate! Â Check this out!
Who will LOVE this offer: This is an ideal offer for the small business that KNOWS they need a cool site and wants to do social media but just doesn’t have the time. Â If you are currently spending more than four hours a week messing around with your site and blog and web sites and blogs are NOT your business — then you need to see everything that’s offered.
What IS the offer?:
- Custom website
- Custom content
- Blog articles
- Search engine
- Visitor feedback
- Content changes
- Mobile ready
But wait — there’s more! Â He’s also offering four more items to his offer that are hard to turn down.
- email marketing
- social media
- pay pal
It’s going to be hard not to sound like a hard pitch sales person on this offer. Â That’s because I think it’s such a terrific, hard to resist offer. Â Here’s how to decide if it’s for you.
- How much are you spending on hosting?
- How much are you spending on design?
- How much time are you spending on blogging?
- How much time are you spending on social media?
- Have you done ANY SEO activities ?
- Do you currently have an email marketing and nurturing campaign?
There are more questions I can ask. Â But when you sum all those activities, their cost, their opportunity cost and the frustration that you might have over doing them — then this just might be something worth considering.
By the way – John isn’t going to try and sell you on this either. Â Click over to Total Site Support and see if it’s interesting to you. Â There is a one-time $149 set up fee and then $250 per month.
WARNING – Don’t be late on your bill
There is one BIG issue that I have with the site — and it may not be an issue for you – in fact, I’d be interested in hearing if what you think about it.
If you decide that you want to move the site from Total Site Support – you will lose all the content. Â In their FAQ section it says that if you do NOT pay the monthly fee – your site will be taken down. Â You own the domain name, but nothing else. Â This may be a serious consideration for a small business.
I wish they had a buy-out option here. Â Because this is such an irresistible offer to get started, but what if your business grows and you become tech savvy enough to run it yourself and you love it? Â You’re not going to want to lose all the work and the traffic that you’ve started with Total Site Support are you?
But if you aren’t in the business of doing webs and blogs, maybe this isn’t that important — I want to know what you think.
