Welcome March!

March is here and in full swing!
What are your social media goals for March?
Maybe finally getting around to updating your "look" or timeline picture on Facebook?
Creating a blog?
Learning how to schedule posts for your social media sites?
Connecting with others through online networking?
Getting more active on Twitter?
Whatever it is, LNT would love to help.

Getting "Social" in February and Setting Goals!

Now that we're already starting February, it's time to get "social" with your business and start accomplishing the goals you set in January!
Start off with gathering your list of goals (if you haven't made one yet, no worries create one now-it's not too late) for 2013.
Now read each goal and think "how am I going to accomplish these goals?"
You need a game plan, as with anything.
Start out small and work your way up to the largest goal, or go in the opposite pattern up to you.
I like to write a list of GOALS rather then resolutions each January because then they seem more "approachable" and "do-able" to me!
More of a "to do" list but with a positive spin on it.
A few of my business goals this year are the following~
*Keep learning more about the ever-changing world of social media, so I can keep my clients up to date.
*Gain at least 5+ new clients each month.
*Complete at least one group seminar (if not more) every month and follow up with each person individually that attends...which I've done in the past but could do a better job at this year.
*Continue to grow my brand by also increasing my fans on ALL social media sites.
*Create a monthly e-newsletter and keep up with it (and make it interesting to my clients and business contacts).
Those are just a few of mine, how about yours?
Is social media on your list?
If so contact us at www.LNTSocialMediaTraining to see how we can help YOU achieve your goals for 2013!
Stay Social,

Social Media & YOUR Business: 5 Helpful Tips

Fall is in full swing and LNT Social Media Training has been keeping busy lately with lots of exciting new clients!

Today, we would like to share 5 helpful tips to kick start
Social Media for YOUR business...

1.) TIME!
Set aside time each week to focus ONLY on your Social Media accounts. This could be a simple fifteen minutes a day or once a week. Having a "scheduled" time set aside to manage your Social Media will give you the practice and patience to really take your online presence to the next level. 

Communicating with your fans and followers is key to Social Media. Make sure you are tweeting, liking & supporting posts and updates from your fans and other businesses. 
This can really help grow your Social Media and in turn have others interact with your business online.

Learn how to use the scheduling features on Facebook and other Social Media management tools such as Tweet Deck and Hoot Suite. These tools are amazing for managing sites like Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn. 
Blogging sites also offer scheduling options, which is a great idea to manage posts. Such sites make having multiple Social Media sites much more manageable when you have a busy week ahead of you and not enough hours in the day. 

4.) LEARN!
Take the time to learn about what is going on in the Social Media world. Set aside some time to do a little research on what works for other similar companies or ask for advice from mentors or business partners and friends. We had so much support when we first started out from other small business owners in our area and learned SO much by reaching out to others and supporting their businesses as well :-)

There are always weeks that will be slower than others. 
Weeks when you will only get a couple "likes" or followers and you might want to give up on Social Media...DON'T!
Your fan base will continue to grow if you put effort into your posts and updates. Remember to keep material interesting for others to keep coming back to YOUR business Social Media sites. 
It won't always be easy, but once you get that FIRST customer or new contact from using FREE Social Media, you will see that hard work really does pay off.

We hope you enjoyed our tips and if you are looking to book a one-on-one training session with LNT Social Media Training check out our website by clicking here!
