What’s all this about? Are Facebook & Twitter really the way to get more clients now? Surely Yellow Pages is still the best way to advertise. No. NO! NO!!! These old methods are dead! over 75% of people are using the internet to find services & products, and over 90% or people will check out a supplier via their website.
What’s the best way to pursuade prospective clients to choose you over others? Not priceo. It’s word of mouth. Testimonials from existing clients, either directly, or indirect will give prospects a level of confidence in your service above others. And what better way to get people chattering about you than on Facebook, Twitter and Linkedin?
