Twitter the best you can…

How to get the best from TwitterHere is another publication in our occasional series of getting the best for your rural business from the web.

Enterprising use of social media, like Twitter, can raise the profile of your work, give you access to and contact with your customers, as well as helping you build a following for your goods or services.

The booklet from HubSpot informs the enterprising business person how to think afresh about Twitter, as well as help with planning how to develop your contacts and new relationships with bloggers, other web publishers and influencing readers of your web site.

Twitter is actually a micro-blogging tool in its own right for your business. Download the booklet here and find out why

Enterprise news – always updated

Get news automatically here...We have just published a new secBEANS page – a newsfeed where you can find constantly updated enterprise news, advice and resources.

From The Economist to the The Start-up Foundry, you will find a variety of enterprise themed newsfeeds, which we hope you will use as a one-stop shop to keep current with enterprise developments and small business information.

Do you have a favourite blog or news source that you like to use? Would you share it with others? If you let us know, we’ll integrate into our page if we can  (…and give your business a credit too!)

You can subscribe to the individual feeds by rss at anytime, for free.

If you do not yet use rss feeds to keep up to date with enterprise news, or any news at all, this link will take you a short 100 second YouTube movie which explains how it works. Keep up to date with a news reader – makes life simpler…

You can find the secBEANS newsfeed page here… 

 

Profile or Page?
Facebook for enterprise…

Help on new media hereThe short answer to the above question for an enterprise, or any organisation that generates revenue for whatever reason, is Page!

Why should you care? Because Facebook users represent an audience of over 750 million potential clients or customers. Offering Facebook users, via their mobile devices, access to your community enterprise has got to have an influence on the sustainability and income levels of your organisation.

When you first dip your toe into the world of new media and inbound marketing it can all sound very ‘USA’ and jargon laden.

Do persevere, because your customers will, if offered lively, fresh and informative news about your enterprise on a mobile device, be one step closer to placing an order, paying for a service or booking that appointment.

Below is a download link to an easy guidebook (pdf file 1.8Mb) on getting started with Facebook, for your community enterprise. We didn’t produce it, it has been created by HubSpot, a new media company specialising in web marketing.

You can download this booklet in pdf format here.

It offers clearly laid out advice about getting started on Facebook for your community enterprise and how best to exploit the features of Facebook for your marketing efforts.

We liked it.
