Welcome to the Q Social Media June Newsletter, top tips for marketing online and upcoming events.
1) Save time with Hootsuite - social media dashboard application, post one message to 3 platforms in one go, i.e. Twitter, Facebook Page & LinkedIN. Saves logging in and out of each plaform to post your latest message.
2) Schedule Messages - out all day, got a great message that your online network connections could benefit from, but its home time. Then use Hootsuite to schedule the message to go out the next working day to Twitter, LinkedIN or Facebook Page or to all 3 platforms.
Why it’s so important to have right strategy with social media – even the big boys can get it wrong - based on article by Mark Ritson in Marketing Week - Pepsi vis Coke - click here.
|How we help
We've recently been tasked with helping a business increase their online presence via Google and Social Media tools. This week myself and Mark are going on site to the business to run a social media and search engine optimisation (SEO) audit. I'll be checking their existing social media setup, implementing quick fixes and producing a report with my recommendations. I'll then be working on these and providing the necessary training they require over the coming weeks.
Mark is checking how optimised their website is for Google and will be running through with their website guy as to what changes they could make to help optimise it. This with the long term view to try and gain page one presence on Google.

||“I attended one of Chris's courses this week and it was excellent. We all dabble in Twitter etc but Chris's course, the materials and delivery really crystallised the subject to the point where all in the room felt empowered to put the training to good use. Thanks.
