What Do You Post On Social Media?

    People definitely would. If it's something for kids then even better because people love getting their children personalised things for Christmas, it's a great idea, I think you should go for it.
     
  2. I would enter that competition, particularly if it's free. You'll find that some people enter contests for all kinds of things just because they're free so it is worth a try. I think people like quirky things at Christmas as well so if you can find something unique you'll be a success with it. Also the ones who don't win might want to have something anyway, and will therefore buy it from you regardless.

    Just a note: I have seen quite a lot of photos go viral because they're being shared for competitions. Particularly those that are competing for hotel room getaways etc. But arts and craft items would go down very well too, I'm sure.
     
  4. Does anyone here advertise jobs on social media? I have been thinking about hiring another person for the business but I'm not sure whether I should try by doing that, or to advertise in the normal way, on jobs websites etc.

    Do you think I'd be able to find genuine people using social media?

    We have hired an administrative post in the past, but the majority of people who we want to work with are already known to us, so there isn't really all that much need to advertise at all. I would say that it is worth a try though, and you could still interview them just as you would have done if they'd applied any other way.

    You just have to prepare yourself for a lot of jokers 'applying'. If you're advertising on jobs websites then at least the only people who will be on there are those who are actually looking for jobs, whereas on social networking a lot more people will see it. But it should be quite easy to tell who's being serious and who isn't.

    I use social media quite a bit. If I'm on my business page, I only share things related to my business. On my personal facebook it's cute animals and funny memes, but when it comes to the business page I like to keep it strictly business.

    Sometimes the two have to be slightly intertwined I think. You have to remember that people don't go on Facebook for business - they go for pleasure. You have to appeal to that, hook them in, and then sell them your business.

    I post short but very cute videos. Many people do reposts, really!

    I would recommend good quality chocolate for adult and different kind of toys for kids

    For Scottish Businesses & Residents, there is an initiative to get people up skilled in Digital Skills.

    Might be worthwhile looking at this NCFE Digital Marketing course which is free and fully funded by the Scottish Funding Council

    I don't use it very much to be honest...
