I have had several people ask me where they should be spending their time on the internet. This is the first in a series of blogs I am writing to help you get started in the social media world. I am skipping the background of social media, but if you want to know more about it, and how it can bring you business, see my earlier posts.
Below are ten buttons linking to ten different websites that I have built profiles on. Each one of these sites contain links back to my primary website, http://www.timwhitehomes.com. The goal here is to drive traffic to your website! You don't have to spend hours every day on these sites, just take a few minutes to create a profile on each, and you're started.
Here's a tip: Once you create a profile on one site, copy and paste it to a word document. Expand that word document to include your intro, your business history, some personal information (wife, kids, hobbies, etc.), and keep a running tally of your websites. Once you have it done it once, you can then copy and paste your information into the other sites. I do recommend going back later and switching up some stuff here and there, when you have time.
So, for today, click one of the buttons, say hello on my site, then create your own.
You don't have to add content to any of them yet, but if you have the time, do it.
Making the first one should take maybe thirty minutes, tops. After that, you should be able to add the other each in about 5 minutes by copying and pasting. So in a little over an hour, you can have ten more websites pointing back at your website.
Did someone say Search Engine Optimization?
This is designed to be a quick get in there and get some juice going post. We'll build on the other steps later, and explore what types of content will get you better search results.
