Here are my #TallTartanTips! I share these weekly on LinkedIn. They are a handy reminders I have picked up in social media land about how to do marketing when running your own business.
✔ Feel the fear and do it anyway.
✔ Like, comment, and engage with connections on social media.
✔ ‘Follow’ useful connections on LinkedIn, who might know others in industries you have an interest in, who could help with work.
✔ Plan content for social media; have a strategy.
✔ The 3Ps: patience, perseverance, persistence.
✔ Share T&Cs with clients. Have a contract to protect yourself.
