Back in 1998, I got my first PC computer and using a dial-up modem (that made the funny noises) went online for the first time and was immediately enamored by the power of the Internet. Fifteen years later, I still feel the same way.
I have seen a lot of exciting developments happen online over those years, but the biggest and most significant would be the rise of social media.
In my mind, social media is now a vital small-business tool.
By having a solid social media strategy in place, you can actually connect with a much wider audience, wherever they are located, and let them know about your services and products.
After starting my own small business social media profiles, and seeing how they increased my company revenues, without the need to invest a lot of time and money, I suddenly had a lot of family, friends and business owners asking for help with their social media marketing.
They felt overwhelmed by the amount of information out there and understanding which social media platforms would work for their business. I realized there was a real need to get useful, actionable social media marketing strategies out to business owners who were struggling to leverage these platforms fully to spread the word about their brand.
So that is why I launched Sociallution.com, which focuses on social media news and marketing strategies that will you help you, the Edmonton small business owner on a budget, build fans, leads and increase your revenues.
I am convinced social media is essential for businesses in Edmonton and beyond today, and I am very keen to show you how to harness the power of it to increase your bottom line significantly.
