How Social Media has helped my business (1)
Is it just hype?
When I am out networking, I am have been struck by the number of people who still need to be convinced that Social Media actually works. People often say that
1) they don’t have time and
2) they are not interested in finding out what people had for their lunch.
Yet business is being done! It doesn’t have to be time consuming and it is not all about cheese sandwiches!
I thought it might be useful to interview a series of people who have made Social Media work for their business.
My first guest….
is Heather Bestel. She is a Psychotherapist and Hypnotherapist who lives in the middle of nowhere in South West Scotland.
She managed to secure a great publishing deal through building up relationships via Social Media. Her series of Meditation CDs for children, called Magical Meditations 4 Kids can now be bought around the world. Heather shares great tips on using Social Media and tells her story about how she was successful.
Social Media has helped her with networking, growing her customer base and researching what people want. She advises going onto forums within your niche and building genuine relationships with people. People do business with people they know like and trust. She encourages you to be authentic so that you are giving out a congruent message.
