It`s Time for Social Media!

A lot of my clients want additional exposure, but don`t want to spend the extra money, or don`t have the budget at this time. A great way to increase your visibility for FREE is to create social media profiles that link back to you. You should have these anyways, as it`s always a great idea to saturate your brand any way you can on the web.

First, get yourself a blog (more on that later) and drop links to yourself here and there. Just don`t overdo it.

Next, make a profile that links back to your site on as many of these Social Media sites as you can (some are for niche industries or groups):
