How To Make The Most Of Your Professional Social Network

Make sure your new or converted Pinterest account only uses existing social media logins that are associated with professional accounts. For example, my advice is to not link Pinterest to Facebook right now because Pinterest only links to personal Facebook profiles, not professional Facebook pages. Until they add that option, I would not link to Facebook. If your Twitter account is a professional account, definitely hook them up!

A quick tip – if you use multiple web addresses pointing to the same website, you’ll want Pinterest to know your actually web address. Not the name of an address that points to another website.

Creating a social media network will take time and patience. You won’t attract tens of thousands of real followers in a day. While it is possible to create an “instant hit” that goes viral within hours, that is not the norm. Just have patience and cultivate your following over time.

Pin: This is how you add an image or video to Pinterest. The file can either be a link or an uploaded image. You can also give captions to the images and videos that you pin.

How about a ‘poll ad’? This gets your business name to Facebook users that are not current fans of your fan page. A question is asked in which an answer is selected from a drop down list; the answer will then prompt the user to see statistics on the answers of everyone who has already taken the poll.

1) Make a Facebook Fan Page: Creating a Facebook Fan Page for your team is a great way to engage supporters of your program with updates on your team and fundraiser. To make a Facebook Fan Page, you must first have a Facebook profile. Then you can create a Fan Page here. Choose “Brand, Product or Organization,” select Sports/Athletics on the pull down menu and name your page. Next you will need to put in a picture for the pages social profile. That’s really the basics to making the page. To see a good example of a collegiate program’s Fan Page, visit Ohio State Buckeyes – lots of updates, pictures and discussions.

The very best thing about twitter is which you can get virtually any information that you simply may need. If you’re known for posting relevant tweets then individuals will follow you. Also tweeting the latest on-dits on what is occurring on the planet by the minute helps. This might get more followers on twitter for you.

Remember that you can only follow 10% more than your follower count when you pass the 2000 follower mark. Example: 3000 followers will allow you to follow 3300 users.
