Integrating Your WordPress Site with Social Media: Twitter, Facebook and Linkedin

Taking control of your online presence

July 16, 23, & 30

1:00 pm - 2:00 pm with 30 min Q&A sessions afterwards

It used to be enough for a business to have a website

Customers would go online to their favorite search engine, and find what they were looking for.  With an effective site, your business would be found and your business would grow.
But now, there are more websites than ever and it is harder to get the visibility your business needs from a website and search engine traffic alone. The way your customers use the internet has changed.
The internet is now a very social place to be.  There are a myriad of social networking sites where your potential customers are spending their time interacting with each other – but are the  interacting with you? Are they learning about your business?
In today’s competitive environment, it is more important than ever for a business to engage their customers where they are spending their time online – and today those places are social media websites.
But how does the average business person find the time to learn about how to effectively move their website from the static sites of the past to the connected websites of today?

Tell me if this sounds like you:

  • You have heard of TwitterFacebook, & LinkedIn – you may even use one or more of the sites personally – but you have no idea where to begin when it comes to leveraging them for your business.
  • You know you need to have a presence in social media, but don’t know where you will find the time to learn how, let alone implement the strategies.
  • You may have tried to use social media to spread the word about your business but got little to no results.
  • Using and integrating social media into your business website seems like such a daunting task that you keep putting it off.
Don’t despair!  The Website Social Media Plan is here for you – it’s a 2 week class that will get you connected and effectively using your website and social media in no time.
Kim Beasley will explain why you want your business website to be a WordPress website, so you can tap into the ever evolving power of the WordPress platform.

If your site is already on WordPress, you are ahead of the game!  If it isn’t, you will want to participate in this class to see just what your current website is missing.  WordPress is a content management system that allows many developers to create plug-ins to do just about anything you can come up with for your business website.
There are plug-ins for links, maps, video, audio, chat rooms, comments and more.  The sky is the limit and more are being developed everyday – the best part?  Most are free!  By building your business on the WordPress platform will allow you to evolve and grow with the ever changing landscape that is the internet.

Do YOU have an Online Following? Are you on Page One of Google? Can your customers find you?

Do YOU have an Online Following?
Christian Retailing spotlighted this trend recently in an article calling attention to the group of author-run blog sites and new social media forms such as Twitter and Facebook.
 Cheryl Kerwin, senior marketing manager for Tyndale publishers says, "An author needs to be online somewhere - whether it's a blog, Facebook page or a website (or twitter). Digital seems to be the trend, and we recommend this to all of our authors, encouraging their involvement in this 'cost free' communication ...which builds a loyal following."
For more tips on online marketing, I have a downloadable ebook and an audio mp3 on WEB 2.0 that teaches you how to "Be The Media."  See our PR Pro Coach Shop.
I also do group PR coaching to help authors get a "grip" on how to leverage their social networking into a loyal online following.
