Social Media Ireland.
If you are running a business in Ireland today it is necessary to have social media accounts like Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and LinkedIn to work in unison with your website. Imagine these social media platforms are extensions of your website reaching out beyond your own websites natural target audience. Every time you tweet on Twitter or post on Facebook you have a chance to reach a fresh customer base that may not usually visit your website and honestly who doesn’t want more visitors.
So how should you Post or Tweet?
The ideal post is short, concise , includes an image and has a link back to your website. Ensure the image is an eye catching one so it entices you to read the snippet and follow the link to the website. Things are a bit different for a tweet, you only get 140 characters which includes your link back to your website, so keep things really simple and use a link shortener like goo.gl or bitly.com to help reduce overall tweet length. Finish every tweet with #hashtags, make them relevant and use # that are trending. Finally don’t forget to add that eye catching image too!
