Here are five things you can do, in under 5 minutes to grow your business.
Articles, blog posts and written content can portray you as an industry expert, a trustworthy source or you could simply be sharing content you think is relevant and exciting. On LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter, article posts are often filtered to the top; good quality content always gets a good response. A quick and easy way to boost your presence.
To grow an incredible business, you know you need to learn constantly. An online video can be the most effective way to find out about a new technique or learn a new concept, and there are so many options available. YouTube isn’t just comedy, make-up instructions and video essays – there are plenty really informative videos that could help you learn something new. TED Talk’s (Technology, Education and Design Talks) are always full of interesting and inspirational ideas, many are longer than 5 minutes, but there are lots great opportunities to learn.

Whether you’re looking to engage your current customers or grow your consumer base, some PR material is vital to do this. Fortunately, there are plenty of free online platforms to connect with people looking to promote you online. Check out HARO or apply to get your business featured in a weekly newsletter and feature in front of thousands of businesses here! Remember, above all, one of the biggest keys to growing any business is showing people ‘Why’ you care about what you do.
Sharing other people’s content is great and can considerably boost your presence online, but sharing your own content is better. Getting a blog out on your own WordPress or even using Linkedin can show you as an influential thinker and leader in your industry. Plan a blog post, coming up with your title and what you want to talk about makes actually writing the post much easier as it tends to flow from there. Having a set framework can be the difference from a long dreary post, to a short and sharp though provoking post.
