As you might be aware, I not only write a blog post every week, but also take care of social media postings, sales on FB and Google SEO. I have also set up a Twitter account, Instagram, Tumblr, Pinterest, Youtube and Google Plus accounts and also update posts on Google's Business site that's connected to Google Maps.
So yeah, I'm trying really hard to get us everywhere!
I think it's been effective for us.
It's hard to know for sure because customers who come into the store don't always mention where they heard about us, and we don't always remember to ask.
It's way easier to know where our site traffic is coming from online though.
It helps that we are able to see Google's tracking info and also social media specific traffic.
Speaking of social media, we have links to all of our social media accounts right on the front page "Above the Fold".
That just means that when you pull up our website, you will see the links right off the bat. No scrolling needed.
So recently, we had a couple ladies come in and talk to a few of us about Comcast and the ads that they've been running for us.
It turns out that we have a 30 second commercial that runs on TV and also plays on certain websites that Comcast has the ability to advertise on. So if you watch Cable TV and have seen one of our commercials, let me know in the comments below!
The numbers that the ladies gave us are encouraging. It looks like the ad is effective in getting our name and logo out there and getting our brand recognized! This makes me happy!
On a personal level, my only real goal is to get this company more sales and customers. I hope that I am able to do this more effectively in 2018 than I did in 2017. The way things are going now, it looks like that may be the case.
I know what you're thinking.
"This guy sure likes to toot his own horn!"
To that I have to say, "Maybe a little"
Really, this blog post is just to point out how much work is going into getting the word out and letting people know that we are here and ready to serve.
The second point to this post is to highlight the Social Media websites/apps where we can be found.
Just as a note, some of the account names are listed under MotoPartsDepot because I started them when I was only taking care of the eBay account.
To answer the question "How Important Is Social Media Anyway?"
So much more than it has ever been in the past.
Let me know if you agree or disagree.
FYI, here are the links to our social media profiles.
See ya soon!
