Every time I go to my direct messages I see 100's of automated messages from followers advertising some more or less important product or service. I say more important or less because nobody cares about these DM's, in fact, people consider them spam. If you have set up automated DM's to greet new followers here is my tip: If you don't want to look like a spammer, or in the best case a "beginner", take these messages off.
The ways to market products and services have changed in the past years. With social media and its attached ways of marketing there are a few things to consider and follow.

One piece of advice we read and hear on a regular basis is, you should have a blog! If you are using social media, or digital marketing in general, you must have a blog. Here is the number one reason:

Companies that blog have 434% more indexed pages and 97% more indexed links.

If you are selling and part of your sales strategy is that people find your products and services via a search on Google, you better have a well maintained blog.

There are many other reasons why you should blog and we will mention some of them in other posts in this blog. Feel free to check back on a regular basis. Should you need support in establishing your blog, contact us.
