Social media will never be a substitute for other forms of marketing. Instead it should compliment them. So, it really is important that you understand how all the different forms of marketing available to you can benefit your business.

The key one for me is simply, getting out there!!! Whenever I speak at events, I bring in new customers. So, I go and speak at lots of events. Of course, a lot of these requests come through social media, but it really is important for me that people see my face and get to know Sam Flynn!

Today I’m in Newcastle speaking at the North East Business Expo. Great opportunity to do what I love doing most, speaking about social media!!

So, your task today is write a list of all the different marketing methods you could be using, then pick one each week and give them a go! Just make sure you continue to use social media to compliment these methods!
