Find out how to grow your customer database through word-of-mouth recommendations using the right social media channels!
Congratulations! You've landed on the right place to learn how you can reach hundreds of potential people in your area looking for your skills, expertise and services, get people to share their happy experiences with you, and do this all quickly and cheaply. And you can start now!
You know that everyone at one time or another needs your skills, and pretty much all of them are using social media every day but you just don't know how to reach them.
You use Facebook personally and know you should be using it for your trade business to connect with the people who need your services - especially so you are the one they call in an emergency and recommend to friends. But you get stuck on what content to post, how to get people to share their reviews, and how to create Facebook ads to reach people in your area, and manage everything on-the-go directly from your smartphone.
Then, when you do finally gain followers, you don't know how to turn them into loyal customers.
"A brand is no longer what we tell the customer it is - it is what customers tell each other it is."
Then there's all that devil in the detail.
Social media is not set and forget. First you dive in and create a Facebook page for your trade business and that's when the real learning begins. When do you post? What content should you post and how often? How do you create offers for your services that people actually want to use and share with their friends. And how do you handle reviews - the good, the bad and the ugly?
Don't worry... we'll walk you through all this.
Trust us, we get it! Remember, although we're now expert in using social media, we had to start at the beginning too. And because you're reading this, we know you're ready to take the leap. But you're not alone, we're right here with you, holding your hand until you're a pro!
What if we told you all this was possible and more?
And that it would give you the edge over competitors in your region, maximise your exemplary customer service, and take you directly to your potential customers without being just another tradie using social media badly?
Well it is possible, we will help you and you can give yourself a huge leg up in social media so that you can stay top of mind with customers so they come back to you again and again
Now for the really GREAT news!
"We don't have a choice of whether we DO social media, the question is how WELL will you do it." Erik Qualman
We know you love word-of-mouth recommendations and for people to share their great results about your work with their friends, and social media is just a bigger, better, supercharged version of exactly that. BUT... unlike putting your voice on steroids and driving through your town with a megaphone, social media can connect you with the right people quickly and easily. Who knows if your next customer wants your skills now and your social media channels and friend's recommendations are how they find you. Plus by using social media well, you'll insights direct from your potential customers. And as a savvy business owner, you'd be a fool to miss out on that.
That, and you will get all our expert tips and tricks that will save you time and money. Yep, there's also that.
