If one has say $5000 to spend... Would you recommend that they spend that on Outreach for some high quality Backlinks or Use that Money to promote the heck out of 10 pieces of content via social media (FB & Pinterest)?

Influencer marketing can be another way of promoting your business, it's what i used in growing my website where i ran my business selling second hand products, it does so by increasing presence through means of promotion via "influencers", these influencers are technically popular people on social media and it varies per platform. If you're looking for reliable and legitimate platforms out there, phlanx can be a really good one here

Hey Sean, honestly I’m pretty sure you get thousands of messages daily so not too sure if this one will be replied to but here goes. My name is Anthony, this is the first time I’ve EVER bothered reaching out to a YouTuber for a simple question that I sincerely hope to get an answer to. As far as expanding your business via social media, for example yeah we got those fitness pages with the really hot chicks doing squats etc but let’s be honest, those thousands of followers are creeps and women who aspire to look like those models, and its eye candy creeps as well. But what can you tell me about advertising a not so sexy service? I own a paint company in Phoenix Arizona. But we’re no sherwin Williams (our competition) so how can us, a 3rd party business get something as boring as paint to get 100’s of likes on its Facebook page? And please if any other viewer or youtuber wishes to comment anything would be appreciated! No such thing as dumb ideas let me know please!! Thanks look forward to hearing from all of you guys!

Nice Video! Apologies for the intrusion, I would love your thoughts. Have you thought about - Miyatalie Social Saccade (do a search on google)? It is a smashing one off product for discovering how a newbie student made over 60k in just 60 days without the hard work. Ive heard some incredible things about it and my mate after many years got cool results with it.
Vivan Joks (1 year ago)
Excellent Video clip! Excuse me for butting in, I am interested in your opinion. Have you researched - Miyatalie Social Saccade (Have a quick look on google cant remember the place now)? It is a good one of a kind guide for discovering how a newbie student made over 60k in just 60 days minus the hard work. Ive heard some decent things about it and my cooworker at last got cool success with it.
This agency helped us with our branding & social media! Highly recommend :) Shanleypearl.com

Lyric Stella (1 year ago)
im having a super hard time finding clients for my photography business. Part of my problem is I live in a small town and most people look at me like I don't know what im doing because im still in high school. I have good content from free photo shoots but I need to start making money for better equipment.
MakakaOnTheRun (1 year ago)
First thing I would include is to include your reference photo shoots. You don't necessarily need to tell that they were for free. Another important thing is to tell what was the value for those photographed ones. What is their feedback, what do they say about your work? How did it help them achieve their goals? Start with small references, go to small businesses first until you win one and then scale your way up with those new references. Lots more to learn, but most important is to proof that your previous customers where satisfied and found your work useful. Show what they did with your photos and what this enabled them to.
Salim Rennewi (1 year ago)
Lyric Stella 1. Start providing value for business for free earn their trust and earn a small position in their company 2. Provide value for SMMA in your are and have them hire you 3. Learn how to sell yourself (learn sales tactics) and improve your confidence - if you have any more questions feel free to message me on Instagram @rennewiboy

I just started, and so far have had one client who has gained 12 followers in one day. Now, I can't promise that for your page/website, but I can promise growth. I'm doing the first few pages for free as to show I'm legit. Give me a shot!

Salim Rennewi (1 year ago)
Juha Covers 1. Upload covers of music that just came out if a really popular song comes out and a hype is created about it have a video uploaded maximum after a week or two to use the song's momentum for your sake 2.
