6 FAQs Women Entrepreneurs Always Ask Me About PR

Publicity is essential in business, yet many women entrepreneurs are unsure about how to generate a buzz and grow their revenue. I’ve compiled a list of Frequently Asked Questions that women business owners have posed to me in the past several months. The list includes both social and traditional media.

FAQ #1: Should I use social media to promote my business every day? Yes, you can develop a loyal following and connect with movers and shakers without having to run Facebook ads, spend gobs of money (or time) and be a tech genius. To get publicity and maximize PR on social media, you can:

·      Comment on an influencer’s blog post or LinkedIn group (something meaningful that indicates you have read and understand the conversation.)

·      Pose a question in a Facebook group, or on Reddit, Quora, or LinkedIn.

·      Find a Twitter chat that your ideal audience frequents and participate. Better yet, contact the organizer of the chat and ask if you can be a guest expert.

·      Use Facebook Live or Periscope to offer a “Tip of the Week.”

·      Include a link to your blog in your email signature.

FAQ #2: What’s the best way to start a blog post or article? State the problem concisely and move into response mode by offering tips and a list of easy-to-read (and understand) solutions. Another effective opener is to provide a powerful—and current—statistic that makes your point. Be sure to link or cite the source of your data.

FAQ #3: How can I make money off of my blog? Women entrepreneurs can monetize their blogs with inbound marketing and automation campaigns, getting advertisers and liberally posting banner ads, create an online course or webinar or use lead magnets within your posts.

FAQ #4: Can I automate my content to save time? Definitely! Hootsuite and Buffer are easy to use and allow content producers to schedule posts and tweets in advance. You can also cross-promote your content on various channels. One thing to keep in mind, especially if you use Twitter. News typically breaks first on Twitter, and if there’s a breaking story that has the microblogging platform abuzz, it’s quickly obvious which messages are in automation mode. Plan to put your tweets on hold or reschedule them when there is breaking news.

FAQ #5: Is it OK to share the same post more than once? Absolutely, as long as it’s relevant. My advice is to freshen up the tweet or headline, but, yes, I encourage you to post the same piece of content multiple times. The secret is to plan the posts over a few days and different time periods. Remember, not everyone is on social media at the same time. Also, be cognizant of time zones.

FAQ #6: How long should my blog post be? Here’s my theory: Don’t worry about word count, just make every word count. Longer doesn’t mean better or smarter, it just means longer. Share valuable and concise information and make your point.

In order to be successful in fixing your credit rating you have to take care that from this minute you pay your monthly expenses promptly before their timetabled date.

  3. Thanks for revealing your ideas in this article. The other thing is that when a problem appears with a computer system motherboard, folks should not consider the risk regarding repairing this themselves for if it is not done right it can lead to irreparable damage to an entire laptop. In most cases, it is safe just to approach any dealer of the laptop with the repair of that motherboard. They’ve got technicians that have an expertise in dealing with mobile computer motherboard issues and can make the right diagnosis and execute repairs.

  4. Another thing I have noticed is that for many people, poor credit is the reaction of circumstances above their control. Such as they may are already saddled having an illness so that they have high bills for collections. Maybe it’s due to a employment loss or even the inability to do the job. Sometimes divorce proceedings can really send the money in the wrong direction. Thanks sharing your ideas on this website.

  9. I was wondering if you ever considered changing the structure of your blog? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.

  11. I have realized that online diploma is getting well-known because obtaining your college degree online has turned into a popular method for many people. A large number of people have certainly not had a possibility to attend a conventional college or university but seek the raised earning potential and career advancement that a Bachelors Degree offers. Still other individuals might have a degree in one field but would like to pursue some thing they now have an interest in.

  12. One important issue is that when you find yourself searching for a student loan you may find that you’ll need a cosigner.

Interesting post.
