This topic should definetly interest those of us who have small businesses.
There’s always ways to improve and things to implement to make our businesses work more efficiently and faster.
We are just four days into the new year and and I keep hearing about Aweber. I’ve been using a different service but quite a few people are talking about how they love Aweber. Then I saw this infographic.
Data and infographic by AWeber
Being able to have auto responders set up is going to make your email marketing campaigns faster and easier.
I think it’s really encouraging that 67% are going to increase their marketing budget.
There are 3 areas I’m going to start focusing on even more.
I found the social sites and the percentages to be quite interesting as well. I see that 50% plan to increase their social presence on Google Plus. Personally I really like the way Google Plus is set up. The fact that you can have groups (circles) is very handy. You can make a post and send it to only those in certain circles which I like better than Facebook. It’s set up to be clear and uncluttered which I also like. The other aspect of Google Plus that I like is the fact that you can have your “hangouts” (video conferencing) and it’s not only free but super simple. It’s a great way to communicate.
I have to get more involved with Linkedin and obviously I’m not alone. As a matter of fact 49% of businessses plan on increasing their presence on the site. As with any social media site there are ways to improve your experience. I looked long and hard for a way to do this and found an awesome course on how to get the most out of Linkedin. I was hesitant to purchase it but I’m sooo glad I did. The course is extremely impressive and you may want to check it out. After doing my research I found out that only 5.8% of the people who purchased this course returned it. The course is extremely impressive and one I feel very confident in telling others about.. Be sure to check it out here.
The third place I’m going to focus on is Tumblr. It’s interesting that 72% are going to increasing their use as well. Today alone they had 87,439,803 posts! Monthly Page Views?
17,790,816,256. Does that get your attention? It sure got mine! It makes sense to post at Tumbr as well as on your own blog for more exposure.
Which social sites will you start focusing more on this month?
