5 Steps for Leveraging Social Media for Your Small Business

by . November 12th, 2012


There are no strictly “right” or “wrong” ways to handle social media, making the whole thing very confusing for new entrepreneurs with a million other things on their minds. Emily Stewart sent us a video with some solid guidelines on leveraging your social media presence.



The tips given are the following:

1) Make a Plan

2) Plan to Brand

3) Don’t Shy From Confrontation

4) Give, Give, Give

5) Don’t Give Up (this is probably the only tip you need to remember!)

This video is part of well-presented video series by on basic financial tips. I personally find their videos to be one of the better introductions to basic finance out there.

If any of you could suggest a better series of videos for our readers, we’d love to hear from you.
