Social Networking to Promote Teleseminars

Teleseminars are a great way to inform people of you and your services. Teleseminars help people get to know you, come to like you and then trust you. A great way to promote a teleseminar is through social networking. If you are already on social networking sites and have access to many contacts, you already have a base of people who know and trust you. These people are more likely to register for your teleseminars and tell their friends about it.

Social networks allow you to post useful tips and information that can help your target market. You can also read and listen to what others are saying so you know what things are of interest to them. You can answer questions on LinkedIn, share your blog posts on Facebook, post a tip on Twitter. Doing these things helps build your credibility so people are more likely to want to participate in your teleseminar. Of course you want to use social networking responsibly and not overdo your promotion. Balance your promotion with valuable information you share.
