Social Media {Blogging}

Hi there!
Hope everyone is gearing up for a fun Memorial Day weekend :-)

Today, we'll be talking about how to use Blogging to grow your business through Social Media.
I have found Blogging to be a very valuable(and free!) tool that can be setup through sites like or to use yet another source of Social Media to connect with your customers(and future customers).

Some business owners ask us "What do I blog about"? That is the best part about blogging.
You can blog(or write) about anything you desire!
I like to blog about Social media since that is what my company is about but blogging is a way to communicate through articles and little "blurbs" if you will about topics related to your business.
Different ideas to share on your blog are interesting facts or specials your company is having, articles related to your business industry, news and events or even just insights to what your business offers to clients.
I have found blogging a great way to meet more individuals or companies that "follow" along with blog posts and can be potential clients(or just interested readers). Others can share your blog posts which will give your business even more exposure.

If you need help setting up a blog for your company contact LNT today at to see how we can help :-)

Social Media & Networking

Hi everyone!
Been a couple of very busy weeks but hoping to write some more informational articles and eventually host some seminars in the next few months. Today I want to talk about how you can use Social Media to your advantage at a networking event. I go to many networking events and organize them for my daytime job so I have come in contact with many small business owners.
The first thing you want to have done are perhaps some mini flyers or cards you can pass out at these networking events with you Social Media site links on them. You can choose to focus on just Facebook or Twitter to start out(or even your blog link) and hand out these mini advertisements for your Social Media sites to get people interested in "connecting" with you in more ways than through your website or email alone. You can even have a link on your business card if you would like, just something interesting that will catch someones attention and make them want to go look your business up on Social Media perhaps when they go back through their business cards from the networking event.
I think this is a great tool that can be done for a very nominal fee and that will help to get you those new customers that perhaps use Facebook or Twitter a lot and to inform them about your business and what YOU are all about.
Hope this helps and I will be providing more tips in the future.
Please feel free to send your questions our way and we will try our best to answer as many possible in upcoming posts.

*$99 Complete Set-up special is still going on through May so contact LNT today to make your appointment!
