    Did you know buyers take businesses more seriously that are active on social media?

  • Amplify your business and find new clients and customers online in 2016.

    Posted on December 30th, 2015 Carol Lawrence No comments

    ten ways to amplify your brand online

    Can you believe it’s the end of the year? Here’s my final video for 2015. The Suns shining through the window and it’s not perfect but it is full of 10 great ways you can Amplify your business and find new clients/customers in 2016. Grab a pen and paper you are going to want to take a few notes.

    Highlight of the tips I cover in my video. 

    1. Offer a free or irresistible offer you audience can’t turn down such as free coaching, a free gift or clarity session.
    2. Create a lead magnet. A free giveaway your customers are going to love. Something they are willing to give up their name and email for.
    3. Host a monthly or quarterly webinar. Give away lot’s of great content and information. Promote your services at the end
    4. Social Media of Course!! Get active online. In this day and age it looks very unprofessional for a business to either not have a Facebook page or one they ignore and don’t take seriously. Your customers are online. They are talking about you online. Make it easy for them to find you, ask questions and share word of mouth how great you are. Bonus: Run Facebook ads to promote your Facebook business page. Unsure how to create your page? Click here for instructional tutorial. Large companies spend between 25,000 and 30,000 on Facebook ads per month. Don’t be intimidated by the big guys. Start building your presence now. Even $5 and $10 a day of “targeted” ads will begin amplifying your brand on Facebook.
    5. Guest post on blogs to increase your visibility. Add articles to LinkedIn and submit articles to places such as Huffington Post, Mind, Body, Green, All Things Healing. Look for high profile places you can submit your content to related to your niche.
    6. Create your own Facebook group. I’ve seen so much traction being built in Facebook groups this past year. Listen to video for a bit more information on this tip.
    7. Engage in 5-6 Facebook groups per week. Look for groups that are going to be full of your potential next client. Look for active groups. Don’t spread yourself to thin. Target a handful of groups to get very active in, engage, share and show off your expertise. Adding the Facebook Groups app to your smartphone will make this easy to do.
    8. Live stream with Periscope, Meerkat, Facebook Mentions or Blab!
    9. Podcasting. Having a regular podcast establishes you as an expert in your field. If you Blab regularly you can upload your replay as your podcast.
    10. Videos. As you can see by watching my video above, videos are not my specialty. Even though I coach my clients all the time on the need for videos I myself have dragged (bleep, bleep) on getting a bunch done. My goal in 2016 is to amp that up a lot! No matter if my videos are amazing or stink. I have information to share with you so stay tuned for more.

  • Blab Replay: #EncoreChat with Carol Lawrence For Older Entrepreneurs

    Posted on December 18th, 2015 Carol Lawrence No comments

    Blab Replay: #EncoreChat with Carol Lawrence For Older Entrepreneurs – Hosted by Judi Bonilla

    Ok here’s a little story for you. I did a Blab today with aging expert Judi Bonilla. I actually did two. I jumped on Sally Hendrick’s blab about Facebook ads and Lead Pages (Thank you Sally) And I did a scheduled blab with Judi. Here’s a tip… Run any updates your computer may need ahead of time or turn them off. My computer is in the shop and i’m using my husbands computer. When the updates started I lost sound then it kicked me off completely!!! It could have been a Blab glitch but i really think it was my computer. This video is take two. To make a long story short we stuck with it as most entrepreneurs usually do and did a second video for you. I’m so glad we did.  Over all it was a lot of fun. I recommend trying Blab if you haven’t already. I do think Facebook mentions is going to be the #1 way to stream in 2016 but Blab will be hot on it’s heels. I especially love how you can have a live conversation with people instead of talking at them.

    In this Blab we talk about aging, social media, writing and being an aging entrepreneur. Read the rest of this entry »

  • 25 Tips For Growing Your Business With Twitter.

    Posted on December 14th, 2015 Carol Lawrence No comments
    25 Twitter Business Tips

    Twitter Tips For Growing Your Business

    Twitter has been going through changes. For instance they have recently added moments. A lightening bolt looking icon located at the top of the Twitter home page. When you click on the lightening bolt you see all the latest trending news. If you want to stay on top of trending news check Twitter first. I often read breaking stories minutes and sometimes an hour or so on Twitter before it hits the mainstream media. Another change is the favorites icon is now a heart. Who doesn’t like hearts right? Clicking on the heart under a post shows you like it. It’s a great way to acknowledge someone’s Tweet without actually saying something or retweeting it. I know for some business owners Twitter is a bit confusing so I’ve compiled a list to help simplify it a bit for you and provide you some tips on growing your business with Twitter. Do you have any more tips to add? Leave them in the comments below.

    1. Stay active on Twitter. Twitter is fast moving and requires lot’s of Tweets to get noticed.
    2. Use tools such as http://hootsuite.com to manage your Twitter account. You can schedule Tweets, see your @mentions and keep an eye on your platform from one universal spot. You can also schedule Facebook posts using Hootsuite. Don’t just rely on scheduled tweets. A combo of scheduled and live posting is essential! You must engage, engage, engage! For an example check out Adam Chandler. He is crushing it on Twitter!
    3. Fill in your profile completely. Do not miss this opportunity to show off your expertise. Here’s a look at my profile. Add some relevant hashtags and your website link.
    4. Be sure to add a profile picture. I never follow back someone who hasn’t taken the time to upload a photo. Plus, spammers tend to not use photos. Did you know there are people who set up hundreds of fake accounts a day? When you see someone promising 20,000 followers for $29.00, avoid them like the plague. You want real followers who are interested in what you have to say.
    5. Use the Twitter search located at the top of your Twitter page to search out local businesses, people, possible clients and more. Join niche related Twitter chats.
    6. Retweet relative content to your audience. Just like on Facebook or Pinterest, your followers love it when you share their information just make sure it’s a good fit for your audience.
    7. Use your own hashtag or a popular hashtag so your conversations can easily be found. Example: I use #socialmediahelp4u If someone clicks on that hashtag on Twitter or Facebook they will see multiple posts from me. You can also see how it shows up in the search engines when I search for it on Google.
    8. Paper.li papers are becoming real popular. One of the ways these online papers generate content is by pulling in Tweets with certain hashtags. Anyone can create their own Paper.li paper. It’s free to get started. My Social Media Help 4 U Daily News features social media articles from around the world. One hashtag I use to pull in content is #socialmedia.
    9. Add a photo to Twitter. Approximately 65% of people learn visually. According to 3M Corporation, the brain processes visual information 60,000 times faster than text.
    10. Build your list organically. Buying Twitter followers is not going to guarantee you that those followers give a care about what you are Tweeting. When following people look at their Tweets, you should be able to tell if they are a real person or company.
    11. Engage, engage, engage. I’ve met plenty of new friends, gained new leads and signed new clients through the use of Twitter. I know I said this before but it’s super important. People love to engage by answering questions so add a poll. Ask a question with multiple choice answers or ask a trivia question.
    12. Tweet content and links that lead back to your website, blog posts, Facebook page, newsletter opt-in page and other social sites.
    13.  Tweet your services and tips related to your niche and industry helping you build your brand.
    14.  Follow the top leaders in your industry. Watch and learn from what they do, what they Tweet. Share their content by RT’s, mention them and build relationships.
    15.  Organize whom you follow with lists. You can create lists for customers, professional organizations, social media teachers you follow and more.
    16. Create a custom graphic and use it for your background visually branding your company on Twitter.
    17.  Publicize your Twitter account by adding your Twitter handle to all your business materials. Flyers, business cards, online signature, website, email newsletter, receipts, invoices and where ever else you think it’s appropriate.
    18. Pay for promoted tweets to extend your twitter reach to a targeted audience.
    19. Use untweeps to clean up your Twitter account and stop following people who don’t Tweet.
    20. Add photos to your tweets. For example: Add pictures of employees in action, products and business meetings. If you are an author provide multiple cover options and ask for feedback on your readers favorite.
    21. Add the Twitter App to your smart phone so you can tweet on the go.
    22. Add the Instagram App to your your smart phone. Share pictures from Instagram to Facebook and Twitter all at the same time.
    23. Tweet a Twitter only special or coupon. Give a discount on a product or a free gift to your Twitter readers. ½ off second meal, free dessert, etc.
    24. Embed a tweet into a blog post. Or use the plug-in Click To Tweet.
