Getting involved in social media sites isn't that difficult, and it can open any business up to thousands of new potential customers, or even more. We wanted to offer them something that would be an easy, clear guide to their first few steps.
Seattle, WA (PRWEB) June 21, 2011
Blue Sky Projects, a leading Seattle-area web design and online marketing firm, announced today that they have made available a guide to "Getting Started in Social Media Marketing." The single page PDF document, which is free and available for download from the company's home page at http://www.blueskyprojects.com, features quick, easy-to-use advice for small and medium-sized businesses that want to profit from Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn.
Blue Sky President and Founder Marc Rapaport was quick to point out that the release of a social media quick start guide is long overdue. "Every day we talked to business owners and marketing managers who have heard that hundreds of millions of people are joining sites like Facebook, and that there are billions of dollars to be made."
"And yet," Rapaport continued, "They don't act on this information because they aren't sure how to get started. Getting involved in social media sites isn't that difficult, and it can open any business up to thousands of new potential customers, or even more. We wanted to offer them something that would be an easy, clear guide to their first few steps in social media marketing."
The release of the tips sheet is the latest move by Blue Sky, which has recently won a number of high-profile web design and online ecommerce marketing clients, to increase the small business community's awareness of social media opportunities. Rapaport mentioned that the firm also regularly releases content through their company blog and social profiles.
"It's important to get the word out, because social media sites aren't going away any time soon. What we try to impress upon people is that their best customers are already using sites like LinkedIn. If they can learn some basic social media marketing strategies, they could easily deepen relationships with existing clients while being able to reach a much larger potential pool of business. But for any of that to happen, they just have to get started first."
Rapaport says he expects the tip sheet to remain on the Blue Sky Projects home page indefinitely, and will continue to offer free consultations to business owners who want to know more, or who are interested in finding ways to make their social media profiles impactful.
"The field is so new that there aren't a lot of established rules yet. Still, where most smaller companies fail is by not keeping up, or not having professional content to share. It doesn't have to cost a lot in terms of time and money to succeed in social network marketing, but it does help to have a professional team to guide you in the right direction."
