Welcome to the Q Social Media September Newsletter, top tips for marketing online and upcoming events.

 

Top Tips:

1) Track website stats - use tools like Google Analytics to track the performance of your website and online marketing activities like social media. This way you know whether your online marketing activities are working and how they could be further improved.

2) Hootsuite Stats - another good reason to be using Hootsuite to manage your Twitter activities is you can actively track posts that have website links in them, how many clicks, which ones are proving popular, who your influencers are (in terms of retweets) and from where in the world.

3) Facebook Insights - track the number of views your Facebook postings have had, the age groups and male to female ratio. Key data if you are thinking of running a Facebook Ad campagin to grow the fan base.

How we help

For the last few weeks we have been working on promoting a new seminar and launching some new services (some still in progress):

Online Sales and Social Media Strategy Seminar - 29th Sept - Exeter - this half day seminar always proves popular and we only have 4 places left. We feel this seminar gives a good insight in to online marketing using social media, the google tools and email marketing. Here are feedback excerpts from the last seminar:

“very worthwhile morning, helped to overcome the fear of social media & clarify the benefits of using it” - Cherry Trott

Excellent introduction to using to using social media for business”- Peter Phipps

Good overview of the 3 main tools(Facebook Linkedin and Twitter) with recommendations for next steps and further action.”- Martin Truman

Online Marketing Data This month we are launching a new Online Marketing Data service using social media monitoring tools (similar to say using Google Alerts or Keyword Tracking in Hootsuite but with much more superior enhanced functionality). These are ideal for generating new sales leads or to enhance online customer service presence as part of online marketing. More details will be on our website soon. Interested?

Online Marketing Club

We are soon going UK wide, once we have launched our new Online Marketing Club, our website developer Rob Glover (@robjglover) is working hard to get the site up and running and we hope to give a launch date very soon.

This is ideal for those that like to work out how to use the social media and google tools for their business themselves but would perhaps benefit from quick reference guides for when they get stuck. We will also be providing guidance on developing a social media and online marketing strategy with website and search engine optimisation advice. Along with a support forum too. More info here.

LinkedIN eBook The third service we will be launching is our eBooks, starting with Unlock the True Value of LinkedIN for your Business. We are very excited about this as it will soon be on Amazon and other eBook stores. We are just finishing working through the first draft, adding a few more touches here and there and we will let you know once available.
