Social Media is Mightier Than the Sword

I’m a virtual assistant who enjoys helping others in their business. Actually, an experience I had with helping a friend set up some things for her business opened the door to me thinking being a VA is what I’d like to do. Being able to say that I can help with some of their administrative work while they spend time with a client or growing their business in someway makes me feel good.

So the other day I was helping a client set up a new Facebook, Twitter and YouTube account, the Holy Grail in the social media world. And I realized how much this was going to help their business. Setting up these accounts and creating content for them was going to bring them before a worldwide audience. And if I did my job right and used the correct keywords and a little SEO it would bring them before a target market that needed what they had to offer which would help the people and grow the business.

It blew me away! In the 1800’s it was first said that the pen is mightier than the sword. Now, we need to say social media is the new pen. For someone like me who likes to help my clients with social media that is exciting. Just think setting up a free account on any of the social media sites and then learning about it and putting the correct content on it could change your business for the better.

One of the most important things to remember about social media sites such as Facebook & Twitter is that they are conversational and relationship driven. These people want to hear about things they don’t want to have a sales pitch thrown their way. YouTube and Pintrest are more demonstrational and informative that is where Uncle Harry learns how to change the oil and Aunt Molly learns how to make a new type of cookie. LinkedIn is the playfield of the professional. There are people to connect with, groups to join and people to watch to see if business can be done. None of the above is set in stone but a general idea of the type of person on each of the sites or the type of interaction they are looking for.

If you are saying to yourself but there are so many of them. Which social media site do I start with? That is why there are people like me who can talk with you and learn what your needs are and make decisions at that point. I offer a free 30 minute no obligation strategy session so we can talk to see what your needs and goals are for your business and if I can help you set up your mighty pen, social media.

      Well, I’m glad to hear that you get back up after you fall. :) We all do certain things well and other things we should outsource. It sounds like social media is such a thing for you. Let me know if I can ever help.
