Austin, Texas (PRWEB) March 06, 2012
A new free bonus course on Facebook and social media marketing comes with most Shoestring Publishing business startup courses, says Justin Douglas, expert marketing consultant with Shoestring Publishing. The new course is called "My Facebook Formula."
"Many people are starting startups," Mr. Douglas explains, "and according to the Wall Street Journal, more startups are succeeding and becoming profitable than ever before when combined with the benefits of online marketing. We are putting this Facebook course as a free bonus with our other business startup courses so you can be ready when you are studying with us. Some people are wondering how to start a startup. That is all explained, starting a startup can be done with the right knowledge, and we are providing the niche knowledge, as well as accounting, legal thoughts, online marketing, social media and general coaching via the startup boot camp course that is also a free bonus with our business startup courses."
According to Mr. Douglas, the course teaches how to use Facebook to gain feedback from customers and interested people, and that the feedback is extremely valuable: "Feedback is critical to your success. The biggest mistake you can make is to overlook the feedback you receive through your Facebook Page. In fact, you should be encouraging it by posting surveys, polls and through discussions. It is highly valuable because it can be used to improve your business and it's all for free."
"An important part of running a business is to think about your brand and image," says Mr. Douglas. "Brand yourself as an authority with personality. First of all, your Facebook Page advertises your business to the world, so you need to be seen as an authority in your industry. Therefore, make sure that your content showcases your expertise. At the same time, Facebook is a social media site which means you need to let your personality come through a little."
