All-Inclusive Tweets

Want a quick and easy trick for increasing the visibility of your Twitter for business tweets?  Always write a few words before the @username (i.e. Thank you @name…) to ensure all followers of both accounts see your tweet.  If you start your tweet with @username, then only mutual followers of both accounts see the tweet.

Reach Out with Tags

Like many other business owners and social media managers, has your diminishing Facebook for business reach been driving you crazy?  Try this tip: Start tagging other Facebook Pages in your posts as those tagged posts could reach an entirely new audience.  The social network recently announced, “when a Page tags another Page, we may show the post to some of the people who like or follow the tagged Page.”

Control the Message

Are you using LinkedIn for business to network with fellow business owners and establish yourself as a thought leader in your industry?  If so, then you need to stay on top of your LinkedIn Endorsements to ensure visitors to your profile are seeing the endorsements that matter most to your business success.  Go to Edit Profile, click “Edit” in your Skills & Expertise, then click Manage Endorsements and you can take control of how your LinkedIn Endorsements appear on your professional profile.
