There is no “right” way to electronically market your business. There are, however, proven practices to help maximize your efforts, engage interaction online and make a lasting impression on your audience. People want to be entertained, so put on a show. Learn to produce web videos that actually get watched! Find out what people really want to read on your blog (I’ll give you a little hint, it’s not your latest APR special, or employee bios). Finally, kick start your business’ Facebook page by posting what people care about: the news, weather and Lindsey Lohan! No one logs onto Facebook to see a picture of your new showroom or hear you gush about MPG. Find out how common sense is your best friend when it comes to your online presence. Give the people what they want, and they’ll end up wanting you! Christine Knowles is sharing her expertise with you.
