Helping Small Businesses Embrace Social Media

How often do you read or hear something like this: “Social media is a MUST for business these days.” Or: “Your business NEEDS to be on Twitter and Facebook!”

Social Media Marketing: Facebook & Twitter for business. SM Consultant: Micky Stuivenberg, Coffs Harbour NSWHardly a day goes by without seeing another story about the importance of social media and the need for businesses to be active on social networks such as Facebook and Twitter.

Almost all speakers at business networking events tell their audience they would be fools to ignore the power of social media. In fact, I went to an ETC Business Leaders event in Coffs Harbour just yesterday (17 May 2011) where David Koch (“Kochie”) reminded the more than 300 business people in the room they needed to be on Twitter and Facebook if they’re serious about their business.

And I agree. Most businesses can benefit greatly from social media interaction. But only if you know what you’re doing, otherwise it can be a waste of your time.

Social Media Marketing: Helping businesses make the most of it

As a web consultant assisting small businesses and organisations with their online marketing and communications (as well as copywriting and SEO), I have been helping businesses get started on Facebook and Twitter for a few years now.

After joining Twitter myself in early 2009, I quickly embraced it and now can’t imagine not being a part of that wonderful network. For me, it’s the perfect and easiest way to follow industry leaders, to interact and socialise with peers and very importantly: to learn, discover and stay up to date.

Although I’ve offered social media consultancy/marketing/management services for a while, it wasn’t mentioned specifically on my website before. It is now: Social Media Consulting.

SOCIAL MEDIA SERVICES: I offer social media consulting, training and workshops, social media strategies, setting up of professional Facebook Pages and Twitter profiles, getting targeted followers and if required, full management of your social media accounts.

Although I am based in Coffs Harbour on the NSW North Coast, Australia, I offer social media consulting and management to clients around Australia and anywhere else in the world.

If you want professional advice or training to learn how to effectively use Twitter and/or Facebook for your business, you can find out more here: Social Media Marketing & Consultancy and if you’d like my help, please get in touch with me, Micky Stuivenberg of Triple W Communications, to discuss your social media goals and requirements.
