    @Adam Weedy it almost literally happened by accident for me, but if approaching it a little more deliberately than me then I can certainly give a few pointers. A separate post is probably best though so I'll look at getting one up in the next day or so.

    #1 #2 Thank you for your comments, I'm glad there was something here of value haha. Social media is, or can be, a great tool for marketing purposes and as you say, @Jean L. Serio CPC, CeMA, building that trust factor is very important.

    An excellent post, @Steven Davies. And I would be writing all evening if I were to point out each and every valuable statement you've made about social media marketing. Your comment "Another benefit of using social media is that it allows you to reach a much wider audience, with much less 'effort'" definitely resonates, for me, as one of the major reasons for using it. Plus, as I've said in other comments on beBee - it can help you build visibility, authenticity and the very important Know, Like and Trust factors. Thanks for this valuable share.

I have been using social media since 2008 when I launch my business EYE ON BEAUTY http://www.eyeonbeauty.info In fact is a lot of hard work.... worth it in the end to gain visibility and people that believe in natural and quality products.

    Well, I have not long come back from the polling station, having put my big black X in the appropriate box.

    I was disheartened to see PENCILS being offered to make the mark. I'm trying to keep the cynic in me, in check but it isn't easy.

    Anyhow, I had a black pen with me - but how many didn't?... Not that I am suggesting possible corruption, of course.

    Whatever the outcome, just know that I love Europe and everybody in it - but this is about something much more important than us as individuals.

    We haven’t posted anything here for a while, mostly because of the campaigning ahead of tomorrow’s (23rd June, 2016) referendum. The campaign is over, at least from ClickMagnet UK Towers, because if we haven’t convinced you to vote Leave by now then it is unlikely that we will be able to in the next few hours.

    If the nation decides to stay in the EU it will be a bitter disappointment for everyone, not least for our children and everyone that comes after them. Anyway, I’m not writing today to tell you which way to vote tomorrow because that is a decision that you have to make for yourself. I’m here to say what comes next for us on Friday, regardless of which way the vote goes.
