If you’re going to get on the social media bandwagon, make sure you allocate time and take into account whoever is going to be managing your social media.
Westlake Village, CA (PRWEB) October 02, 2012
Nellie Akalp, Founder and CEO of CorpNet.com, was interviewed last week on FOX Business. Akalp shared tips about what small business owners do wrong when it comes to social media. Akalp’s company, CorpNet.com, helps business owners start a business, including incorporating a business, forming an LLC, or simply registering a business as a DBA/Sole Proprietorship, manage their business with corporate compliance services or registering a Trademark.
With millions of small businesses using social media to promote their products and services, Akalp states many are going about it the wrong way. She shares the primary ways small businesses fail in using social media, such as using it as a hard sell, trying to be on every social site, and this sense of need that they have to keep up with the big brands in order to succeed.
She also discusses the myth that social media is free. Many small business owners assume that because it’s free to sign up for a social media profile, it’s free to use. But with the time and money spent to manage accounts, she says, it isn’t free.
“If you’re going to get on the social media bandwagon, make sure you allocate time and take into account whoever is going to be managing your social media,” suggests Akalp, “It’s going to ultimately boil down to how much it’s going to cost for that person to manage it.”
