How To Use Social Media To Build Your Business

In many ways, social media has become the great equalizer in business. Thanks to social networks, small businesses have the potential to target new customers from around the globe at no cost.

Except that's not entirely true. As many SMB owners have found out, launching and maintaining a social media presence has a hidden price: time.

It takes time to learn how to use social media properly, and time to choose the right social networks. But social media can be used to build your business, and with a little time management it can easily be worked into your day.

The guide below will show you how-so read on.

Choosing the right social network to promote your business
Not all social networks are created equal. The quality of the interaction-how much members are engaging with your brand's profile on the network-is what is going to affect your business' bottom line.

Here's what to look for when choosing a social network.

Demographic. This is probably the most important point. Is your target audience part of the social network's demographic? If not, building a presence on that network is a waste of energy.

Member activities on the network. Do members use the network for business or for pleasure? You may have greater luck with a social network that's strictly for business in order to find success.

Functionality's. What features are included on the network and can they help you build business? Look for things like: free classified ads and business listings, video uploads, RSS feeds from your website or blog, and free business forums.

Level of Engagement. Do members actively participate in discussions? Do they respond to messages, forum posts and posted ads? Are they active in carrying on dialogue?





The aspects of a great online profile
The busiest you'll be on social media is when you're getting started. This is when you'll be building your online profiles and automating as much of your activities as you can (yes, automating. More on that in a moment). Here are the aspects of a great online profile.

It's easy to find. Use your business' name for your profile name so you appear at the top of searches. Use your company logo for your picture, and users will know they're at the right profile.

It's interactive. Users expect two-way dialogue on a company's social network profile. Yours should include a forum or discussion board for users to leave comments, links to relevant articles, images and any videos about your business.

Its owners network with its followers. Businesses with a good social media presence welcome new followers, reply to questions and comments, and thanks followers for sharing links to the profile.

It links back to your own website. Ultimately, your goal is to drive traffic to your business website. Your business URL should be prominently displayed. It should also be hyper-linked, so users only have to click the URL to be redirected to your site.

It's frequently updated. Check your profile daily and respond to member questions and comments. Add new content whenever possible. A member question that goes unanswered reflects badly on you as a business owner.



Effective time management
It's the Achilles heel of any small business using social media: it takes up time and that's something most business owners don't have. Here are some tips and tricks on easily working social media into your schedule.

Integrate social media into existing marketing plans. Just as you plan new advertisements or press releases for your business' sales and events, plan your social media campaigns around them as well.

Automate your updates. There are literally dozens of web applications that let you schedule social media updates hours and even days in advance. You can spend a few minutes each morning scheduling the day's updates, and then get on with your day.

Designate a daily time to manage your networks. Block off half an hour in the morning and half an hour in the afternoon to reply to questions from followers.

Quality is more important than quantity. It's better to have 3-4 engaging posts that your followers will enjoy than 15-20 mediocre posts that do nothing to build your brand.



Measuring the impact of your social media outreach
How will you know if any of your social media outreach is making a difference? There are free tools available across the internet that allow you to measure your social media impact-in fact, they're often built into the social networks themselves.

Here's what to look for.

Clicks: How many clicks (visitors) is your profile getting each week?

Conversions: Are visitors signing up for special offers you may have posted, and are they clicking over to your website?

Return Visitors: How many of your profile's fans or followers return, and how often?

New Visitors: Is your profile attracting new fans and followers?



Every small business can run a social media campaign
Social media can build your business in tremendous ways when your campaign is managed properly. By targeting the right networks, using them effectively and managing your time well, social media becomes a powerful tool in your marketing arsenal. Social networks can be a small business 'best friend-all you need is to know how to use them.

We guarantee to provide you with a healthy solution Vapor Smoke as we are the 1st and the original to produce a E Cig with NO animal products, or animal oils and NO petroleum oils.

We offer not only the lowest prices with the best quality but safe natural ingredients with a new freedom in smoking. You may find electronic cigarette at other places, but we are the natural choice. Vapor Smoke investigation and research focused on three main components, safety, performance, and authenticity of taste - look- and feel, long-lasting and last; but certainly not least was the health issue as a Green Certified company. We found the E Cigs on the market were made with animal products, animal oils and worst of all petroleum oils.

After your order, we will have them made by hand in a health lab using white gloves and special care.
We have set up a lab in China to meet the natural healthy manufacturing standards required by us and by the United States FDA. Our Master Herbalist actually went to China for over a month to oversee the set up and make certain all GREEN requirements are met.
 
We will make available Vapor Smoke to every Teen in America who wants to smoke traditional cigarettes as soon as the FDA puts their stamp of approval on child acceptance to smoke E Cigs as a healthy alternative rather than a tobacco addiction with up to more than 4,000 dangerous chemicals into effect but until then children and young adults must get Vapor Smoke from their parents as we will NOT sell to anyone under 18 years of age or according to the age excepted in your state at this time.
Due to federal regulations set up by the US FDA on regular cigarettes we are following the law to the letter till the FDA has decided what they are going to do with this new tobacco alternative concept.

However in China and Europe, children's parents and grandparents are actually buying E Cigs for their children and grandchildren to help stop the use of regular smoking tobacco epidemic of children at such a young age. They tell them we wish you would not smoke at all but if you insist, now you don't need to sneak around and smoke poisons. I have purchased these for you and your friends who also smoke a E Cig, you can smoke these anywhere without danger.
I had tried another brand and it leaked and was a complicated E Cig, what I like about Vapor Smoke is is all automatic and simple.

Directions:
Vapor Smoke: just un-cover and unscrew the old cartridge and screw a fresh new one and enjoy, careful not to over tighten. No cords, switches, atomizers to connect and no liquids to refill.  

Disclaimer:
You must be of legal age in your state to purchase these products. We make no claims you can stop smoking or it will assist with your health in any way.

You must allow 7 to 21 business days for your Vapor Smoke to be shipped and then 3 days to be delivered.

Traditional Cigarettes are deadly!

You will make a choice after reading this, you think what you are going to read below is staggering wait till you start pouring out for the medications, office calls, hospital bills, surgeries. That does not even take into consideration all the extra.
It is important for your life style to stop smoking traditional cigarettes. Check out the Healthy alternative VAPOR SMOKE. Many people are getting smart and switching to VAPOR SMOKE, focusing on health concerns.

Smoking is the number one cause of preventable death in the U.S. and although rates have fallen a bit in recent years, the Centers for Disease Control estimates that about 27% of adults between ages 25 and 44 still smoke and 17% 45 and over. Consider VAPOR SMOKE as your alternative!

Traditional Cigarettes: Bad for Your Body, Bad for Your Budget
These numbers may be much higher for some smokers and less for light smokers

VAPOR SMOKE is not only a Healthy Alternative made with 100% Vegetable Oil it also saves you mega bucks. That cost varies throughout the country, depending on local and state excise taxes. It is a very expensive habit even for the light smoker in this economy, not even considering the Health aspect!On top of the manufacturer’s cost, federal taxes are now $1.01 per pack and states add their own stiff tariffs to incentivize people to kick the habit. Currently, New York leads the nation with a $4.35, for a heavy smoker that could be almost $15.00 a day WOW! I would be haunted as I watched those dollars go up in smoke literally. alone makes me so thankful I do not smoke and neither does my husband. Extreme on state tax on cigarettes, followed closely by Rhode Island, theirs is $3.46 to $5.00 a per pack.
Even for smokers in average-cost areas, $5.29 to $7.00 a day and daily adds up quickly. What could you do with that extra five bucks in your pocket each day?

Order your  VAPOR SMOKE today! FOR HEAVY SMOKERS IT IS MUCH HIGHER!!!

In one week, a smoker could save about $36, enough to go on a movie date, eat out for lunch every workday, pay a weekly health insurance premium, get a manicure and pedicure, or buy a tank of gas for a small- to medium-size car.

In one month, a real smoker would save about $144.00 or a lot more. With that money, the person could get a monthly deep-tissue massage, splurge on an expensive new pair of shoes, have a nice dinner out, upgrade to a professional colorist instead of doing at-home haircare, or pay the monthly bill for a smart-phone with unlimited minutes and data.

In one year, smokers who quit would save almost $2,950 each. They could put a down payment on a new car, take a vacation, repay credit card debt, buy a top-of-the-line computer, or replace all the major appliances in their kitchen.

In five years, a smoker could save almost $9,400. That money could go toward making a down payment on a house or an apartment, paying off school loans, remodeling part of a home, or buying an expensive piece of jewelry for a loved one.  Compare to VAPOR SMOKE
In the long term, there’s almost no limit to what people can buy with money that otherwise would have gone toward cigarettes. If parents stop smoking when their child is born, by the time the kid is 18, they’ll have saved almost $34,000 for his or her college education, not counting interest. If a 30-year-old quits smoking and instead puts the savings into a retirement account at 6 percent interest, she’ll have saved an extra $150,000 by the time she’s ready to retire, not counting employer matches. VAPOR SMOKE will save smoker's $$$$$$


When You Read This You Will Make A Decision, Longer Life or Smoking’s Grave, We Hope You Chose VAPOR SMOKE

These are not my words but the Cancer society and the list is a mile long. Smokers incur many other extra costs. Some companies require smokers to pay $20 to $50 extra per month for their health insurance; insurers and employers all know that smokers are more prone to chronic health problems, so they charge accordingly. In some states, employers can legally refuse to hire smokers because of the increased costs. Life insurance is also more expensive for smokers, as is homeowners’ and renters’ insurance. Like it or not, to an insurance company, smokers are more likely to accidentally burn down their house, so they generally pay about 10  to 30%  more for their habit.

Why VAPOR SMOKE, 

Traditional smokers might be out of luck when trying to sell their home.  It's like buying a home home where dangerous deadly drugs have been made! Most real estate professionals say that it’s very difficult to sell a house when the past occupants have smoked in that home. It is like a motel suite or room you can not get rid of the odor, the very least, the house will need expensive cleaning services to eliminate the residue from carpets and upholstery, but some houses need the entire HVAC system, carpets, and drapes and walls replaced before it will sell. That can be a huge investment of thousands of dollars.
My son Darren smoked. Thank God he is switching to VAPOR SMOKE. He has only been living in his home a little over 2 years. He went to move a picture frame and was SHOCKED, the wall was completely white where the frame had been hanging. His walls had turned totally yellow from the smoke!
Thankful he owns a construction business so it is not quite as bad. I love him with all my heart but I do not visit him because of my breathing problems. When he wants to see me he visits me.

Many rental properties forbid smokers and if you are allowed, you pay a strong deposit and Smoke out side even in the winter months.
With VAPOR SMOKE you can now smoke in the warmth of your Livingroom.
You can Smoke VAPOR SMOKE anywhere, restaurant, club, plane, airport, bar, cruise grocery store, hotel and even fall asleep in bed with it!
We have given you all the facts in order for you to make what you feel is the right decision for you and your family and loved ones!
