Your Online Presence

I have recently started following Pam Lawhorne on twitter @pamlawhorne and she is constantly offering great tips or bits of advice to help contractors/companies with their online presence and general business efforts.

Here are a few of my favorites:

  • Join a group for entrepreneurs and business owners. The networking and support is great for you and your business.
  • Try to loosen up and have your other Tweeters do the same by being honest, intimate & real with your readers.
  • Keep a notebook and pen around all the time. Inspiration can come from anything at any time.
  • Find a niche. Look for something that is unique & will meet the needs of a consumer sector that is being overlooked.
  • Getting away from your laptop for even 2 mins will allow your eyes to rest & keep you from getting tired.
  • Always pay attention to what others on #Twitter are saying… especially to see if they’re tweeting about you!
  •  Use #LinkedIn to learn from others & gain new knowledge so you can become an expert in other subjects & topics.
  •  Don’t go overboard w/ fonts & colors on your blog. If you think there is too much of either – you’re probably right!

Another great resource is a book I just read by Jeffrey Gitomer,  Social Boom.  Get it, read it, do what it says!

About dryinkdesigns

A marketing and business development background is the foundation for Mandi Boedicker’s passion for creating memorable branding support for a number of clients. Initially a graphic designer by trade, Boedicker’s marketing experience in the construction industry sparked a passion for networking and community partnerships. Dry Ink Designs was a natural next step. Boedicker’s freelance client work had spanned over ten years already while maintaining a full-time career, so she turned her creative energy into a career that benefitted the relationships she was building. Strengths in calligraphy, painting and photography soon grew into strengths in corporate identity strategy and marketing/communications support.
