Engage and Influence Your Clients – 27 Ways to Use Social Networks

Social media certainly has the power to be a great equalizer in business development and client retention for small businessesTasha (TC) Cooper Coleman at The Manor, West Orange NJ, growth-stage companies and large corporations.  Strategic use of social media tools combined with authenticity are key ingredients in the secret sauce for online business success.

During the past week, I've had the pleasure of speaking to more than 100 business owners at two events in New Jersey about how social networks and digital marketing can be used for brand development and to ignite exponential business growth.  The most common question during my talks was … “Exactly, how can social media and social networking add value to my business??”  As this was such a popular question from a very diverse group of business owners,  I've decided to share my top tips here on our corporate blog.  Let's go!
