Another excellent episode Cal and Erika, there are some great tips in this episode that I'll be following through on Today!! I learned a lot throughout this series, with lots of things to follow through on to build my business, and I know the rest of the viewers will too. Thank you!!
Erika Flint says
Thanks for watching Brenda. We did cover a lot in this series didn't we? The good news is that after you get things setup, you don't have to spend much time on an ongoing basis, maybe an hour or so a week.
I look forward to hearing more about your experience.

I find twitter more interactive than facebook. I can interact directly with other hypnotists. I find it to be more professional and effective than facebook.
If you follow other Hypnotist than theres a good chance they will follow you back. You will know who your direct audience is. If you tweet something they like or think is relevant than others may retweet it, expanding that info to their audience.
Also, on facebook for the message to be effective it must be seen that day or the next day before it is gone from the home feed, out of sight out of mind.
On twitter the message is always there when someone word searches a topic.
So if I am often putting the word Hypnosis in my tweets then when someone searches for Hypnosis theres a good chance they will see my tweets. Especially if they are hashtagged. The tweets have the chance of coming up for years, year after year.
If you are posting only on facebook you might aswell link that up to twitter, in your facebook settings, than it automatically transfers to twitter, linking the two does the work for you.
If I could only have one, twitter or facebook to express professionally I would definitely choose twitter.
Thanks again for another great podcast!

Hi Jeanne, what great advice! Thank you so much for your insightful details about effectively using Twitter. I especially appreciate instructions on how to link Facebook up with your twitter account and how you use twitter to communicate with other hypnotists.
For listeners, here are instructions on how to link your facebook personal or fan page, and twitter : https://support.twitter.com/articles/31113-using-twitter-with-facebook
Facebook posts can be effective days after they are posted as well, just like twitter. It depends on how people use facebook, and many go beyond just watching the activity feed. If someone visits your personal or fan page they can still see everything you've posted, and hashtags can work the same in twitter as facebook because they are searchable.
If you have questions about using hashtags in facebook, here's a short and easy explanation: https://www.facebook.com/help/587836257914341.
I agree with you completely on the importance of using hashtags, and the benefit of items coming up years after being posted -that can be both good and bad so of course you always want to post carefully wherever it is you're communicating. I get people responding to facebook posts months after I post it, so just because you don't get an immediate response (wherever you're posting) that doesn't mean it wasn't valuable information.
You've inspired me to put more effort into my twitter feed, thank you Jeanne.
I'm glad you enjoyed the podcast.
