Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, YouTube, StumbleUpon, Tumblr, Flickr, Digg, the list goes on and on. There are more social media networks than you can shake a stick at and this can sometimes be extremely overwhelming when you are trying to run a small craft business and everyone is telling you that you also need to be on social media. Well, I have good news and bad news. The bad news is that yes, you do NEED social media to help your business flourish. Good news? You do not have to be on EVERY social media site in the world. You don’t even have to be on more than a few if you feel like it’s too much work for you. And, trust me, social media is work. To help make it a little less of a chore, I’ve put together this collection of articles on social media for beginners, so if you’re just starting out or just looking to improve your social media skill set, we’ve got you covered.
Now, I know what you’re thinking “How hard can it be to use Facebook?” Well that’s a great question. It’s fairly easy to run your own personal Facebook page where all your friends are there to see what you’re up to. Running a Facebook fan page or a business Twitter account is a little different. Why? Well, because once you enter the social media realm as your brand you have to start thinking like you’re in marketing since that is exactly what you will be doing, marketing your craft business.
