This post starts a new path of my journey as a marketing explorer.
Talking to many entrepreneurs I’ve noticed that some of them postpone activities of marketing their services online only because they don’t know how to do it and where to start. Technology seems very scary to them.
I do believe that business owners should focus on business development rather than technology and everything that can be outsourced should be outsourced.
But sometimes there are times when you have to operate with what you have and where you are. I am not an expert in website creation but sometimes I like to evoke my Inner Geeky Goddess and build my own website. I’ve created this website from scratch all by myself. I’ve done it even twice, because the first time around I did something wrong with the settings and the site went very weird.
Here comes my insight of the day:
When you start doing something and think that you rubbish at it, and feel insecure, most likely that you will get results that prove that you are right. Always choose being curious when start something new.
Being very passionate about Facebook marketing, one of the first things that I’ve done was installing a “Like box” on my website. If you want to attract more fans on your Facebook page, you need to offer people to like your page without leaving your website.
To add “The Like Box” on your website you need to go to https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/page-plugin
You can modify the way “Like Box” looks. After that you copy the code and insert where you want it to appear on your website, or you can ask your website person to do it for you. All you need to do is to send them a link to Facebook page plugin and your Facebook pages url.
Please in the comments below describe what your attitude towards modern technologies is. Do you prefer a DIY approach or you would outsource skills to save time?
