Tune in to our live broadcast Thursday at 4 pm est.

Daily we get companies offering to increase the social media followers for our business and our clients. Before we select a company we want to know if the company and the new followers legitimate or fake. We also want to discuss social media etiquette.

Often we find ourselves tagged in a post without our permission. Are these posts designed to send our audience or followers to someone else’s business? I find that many social media and real estate related businesses will become a follower simply to advertise their product or service to our audiences.

In our upcoming live show we will discuss:

  • What does social media marketing entail?
  • How to determine if the company contacting you is legitimate?
  • How to determine if the followers are fake or real?
  • What should the cost be to increase your followers?
  • Tips to help you increase your followers.


Join the Soundcheck live show and chat so we can get your experiences and feedback.

Social media marketing entails marketing or trying to sell a product by advertising on social networking or social media sites, such as Facebook, Twitter, Google +, Pinterest and Instagram. Social media marketing revolves around creating original, free, content on the sites in order to generate buzz about a brand.

Prior to doing business with any SEO agency, ask if they have provided SEO solutions in your market, but most importantly, if they have examples or references they can give you. They should be happy to provide them, along with a process for how to reach your specific goals under specific timelines.
