How to Bring in Money on Social Media without Spending Your Own.

Despite the changing work force, increasing numbers of online shoppers and recent additions of fast growing platforms like Snapchat, many business owners feel social media is irrelevant to their industry. No matter what your service or product is, from Plummer to IT Professional, your brand needs to be on social media. Why? Because it can make you money. 

1. “Educate me and I will buy from you.” Eric Holtzclaw says this often during his radio show on biz 1190 and we’ve found it to be tried and true. Most people don’t have extra time to do a lot of research or even do the task your company seeks to fulfill (social media marketing, cleaning house, etc.).

The importance of Partnerships.

“You can do anything, but not everything.” And that’s why you need a partnership. Partnerships come in many forms. Some share in the profits. Some simply trade ideas.

3 Traits of an Entrepreneur. (What have we learned)

Recently, we’ve been able to meet with several entrepreneurs and business owners to chat about their success, their struggle and what it took to get where they are today. And in our experience, we found that entrepreneurs have three things in common: drive, an openness to learn and a willingness to be different.

Some call it passion, but we like to call it drive (because, when the passion runs out, you still gotta have drive to keep pushing forward). And we can pretty much promise you more “no’s” than “yes's” when it comes to your proposal. But it only takes one “YES!” to move your business to the next step. Some people may doubt your plan for success, but you must have the drive to proceed in the “dog-eat-dog” world of Startup.
