Has anyone got any good advice on getting their name around on the social media? I'm pretty useless and twitter but ok on fb and I have a business page. How do I go about getting people to follow me on twitter?
Follow other people, especially people whose businesses align but don't directly compete with yours. Comment on their work. Ask people you meet to follow you on twitter/FB. Add interest to your feeds, ideally daily, at least twice a week. Make sure your business cards and website direct people to your social media sites. Join LinkedIn, it's very searchable, and put twitter/FB links on there.
Go for quality not quantity! Who do you want to speak to? You need to find a way of engaging with them. Keep your feed fresh, tweet or retwewt a couple of times a day and not just 'buy from me, I'm great' but also things that might interest your potential customers.
