I recently added about 50 contacts and in my usual way, I visit their website and social media presence. Out of the 50, a dismal 8 people had Facebook pages, 17 had Twitter accounts, Google+, Pinterest and YouTube were nonexistent. I went to a popular search engine, typed in a person's business name and their site did not show up.
Here is what you should do right now:
1. Google Your business name - If you don't show up then your "Web Presence" is too low!
2. Have your friends search for your business name in Facebook. It took me several tries, but I finally found some of you! You will always find you because your page is connected to you.
3. Put your big girl and boy pants on and grow your network! Get on social media and increase your web presence!
If Social Media isn't in your plans, you may want to rethink your strategy. Your clients will be looking for you in some interesting places. Check out this Forbes article:
