It’s hard to believe we’re nearly half way through 2012 as we approach the official start of summer. Now is a great time to do a bit of reflection on how business is going and to get a boost of energy to finish out the rest of the year on track!
Remember those New Years’ resolutions and business goals you made at the beginning of the year? How are they going? Do you find you bit off more than you can chew or have you been focused on keeping a steady pace with your goals?
For those of you who wanted to hone in on your social media this year, I thought a few quick check up points could be just the thing needed to keep you on track! Take a look!
1. Plans and Goals- Do you know where you’re going and where you want to end up with social media? Having a set plan of any promotions, news and overall guidelines for your Facebook and Twitter will keep you focused on reaching your goals.
2. Beware of Me, Myself and I- Of course a lot of what you may want to post will be about your business, but be sure to balance that with ways to interact with your clients and things going on in your community. Your clients and potential clients will still need to feel like they’re your first priority.
3. Keep it Attractive, Updated and Friendly- You want your social media sites to be appealing. If people don’t find your Facebook or Twitter visually appealing, they most likely won’t want to spend time there. Make sure all of your information is up to date, and be sure to refresh pictures and content on a regular basis so it feels “new” when people visit. Also be sure the tone of your posts are friendly and approachable. (Looking for a creative design for your Facebook page? Check out our new Facebook Timeline designs!)

Hire a Professional- If you’re having trouble keeping up with your social media on a regular basis, or you run into the problem on not being sure what to post; why not hand the task over to a social media specialist?
