How to Ballyhoo..

We all have talents, gifts and abilities that are interesting to others and marketable. Whether its a blog written in your spare time or a product that you lovingly make.

Not everyone can afford to hire Sales Reps to peddle their wares, or the over heads of a shop front . Rotary, Toastmaster, Lodges of different sorts and sporting groups and womens auxiliries were once the social network through which connections were made and businesses were promoted. less and less do we have the time to attend traders association meetings, join clubs and community groups to promote ourselves through  and likewise, customers don't have time in which to seek you or your services out on the net. This is why a social media marketing strategy is a must for modern business. Network marketing or marketing yourself through a network has been the first step to a successful business since business began.

But how do you separate yourself from the rest of the information out there? How do you make yourself stand out so you don't become more of the whitenoise and static? 

Effective promotion via social networking can be tricky...and word of mouth is still arguably the most effective means of promotion around. Your mission should you choose to accept it, is to combine the two. A customer has more faith in the opinions of their friends than they do in you or your product. So lets make that work for you. Lets earn their trust and let them convert their friends for you.

There are so many hints and tips sheets on how to effectively social network on the web, that you could spend hours researching what works best for your audience and still not find what you're after. Especially if you're not exactly sure who your audience is or what your goals are. 

 I'll save you time and effort by putting down what I have learnt by doing the hard yards myself, so you can learn from my experiences. I can't  teach you to convince those that aren't in your target audience to buy from you, but I can help you learn to target your actual audience more effectively. I can show you how to ballyhoo.

You may not be able to please all the people all the time, but you sure can social network effectively with a little thought.
