The short answer is a resounding YES! In today’s society most people are heavily dependent upon technology to function. There’s not only the idea of shopping online, but working online, playing online, and so many other things. Blue tooth controls so many different aspects of people’s houses: sound systems, air-conditioning, alarm systems, lights…the list goes on and on. And it’s not isolated to the U.S. With so much of society taking part in the growing attraction of technology, it only makes sense to learn how to work it into our business strategies.
Now, the other question to consider is WHICH social media platforms are the best? I mean, there’s just so many of them: Facebook, pinterest, blogs, twitter, tumblr, youtube, instagram, etsy, linkedin, flickr, email…it can be highly overwhelming! Again, the short answer is that they all have their own purpose and can each assist your business in some way. If you don’t know which one to start with, or what platform is better for you and your business, check out THIS site for brief synopsis of each.
Starting in July, I am going to be hosing a Social Media challenge in an attempt to grow my own business (selling crochet patterns). If you are interested in joining me, I will be posting all of the prompts on a public FACEBOOK GROUP and you are more than welcomed!!! The more the merrier. I am not trying to make money off of you, there are no gimmicks or schemes that I will throw in during this challenge. I am merely trying to increase my own income, and am hoping that others would like to reap some benefit from the work that I am going to be putting forth anyways 🙂 So, come on over!!
