Social Networks are taking over the Internet!
The rise of social networks has been nothing short of phenomenal – Facebook, YouTube and Twitter are everywhere you look – and they’re where your existing and potential customers are spending more and more time than on any other website.
Facebook recently overtook Google as the most visited website in the US, showing just how big Social Networks have become. It’s no secret that Facebook wants to be your portal to the Internet, ie the site that launches when you open your web browser. As a business in 2011, you need to be including Facebook and the other Social Networks in your Internet activity.
Be There – Or Be Lost
If you have a business, you need to be on the top Social Networks – Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, and LinkedIn. If you’re not, you’re missing out on great opportunities to expand the reach of your business, and engage with your customers, suppliers, and prospects, on a much deeper level. There are stories in the news every week of companies that are using Social Media innovatively and effectively, to build massive global audiences and turbocharge their profits. Used properly as part of your overall Internet strategy, Social Media could be just the thing to take your business to the next level.
You Can’t Just Spam, People Hate That
At this point it’s important for us to point out something key to your success on Social Networks – you just use them to advertise your products, forcing advertising messages on people – people really hate that, and you can get suspended from sites or even banned if they consider you to be spamming. You have to be smarter than that, building your reputation and gaining the trust of people before they’ll buy your products. You can advertise, but make it less than 5% of your total output on Social Networks – give your fans/followers/friends value, and they’ll repay you with sales when the time is right. Build your reputation as an expert within your field, provide people with answers to their questions, even if they haven’t asked them yet(!), and you’ll soon reap the rewards.

Our Social Media Interface
We offer all our clients a simple online interface through which you can easily manage all your Social Media activity. Features include scheduled posts, blog and newsfeed integration, statistics to track your progress, and link shortening & click statistics.
You can manage, and post, to multiple Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and Foursquare accounts easily and simultaneously – and, using our secret add-on (shhh), you can post to more than 20 additional social media sites at the same time with just one click – so you can update as many social media accounts as you want at once, or just the one. Icanhazcheezburger use the same application to manage over 100 social media accounts from one interface.
We can train you how to use the simple interface to quickly manage your activity across each Social Network you’re on, and help you set it up on most mobile devices. Using HTML5, the app is compatible with all modern browsers on PCs, Macs and other devices.
