Last month, I put all kinds of shouts onto facebook, twitter, and even one of those photo places.
I did a video for YouTube and my daughter put me on a couple other websites I had never heard of.
Unfortunately, I didn’t get a single email from anyone. I was upset, but I knew I just needed to keep putting out my information. I went back to facebook, and I started putting full paragraphs that told about my business and where I was located. Still I didn’t get any hits on my website or on my email. I couldn’t figure out what I was doing wrong. I thought I was doing online marketing, and I was sure I was doing well. I thought maybe I should be putting the ads up more often. I was now creating a new tweet every couple of hours. I was also putting out different ads on facebook. I asked my daughter to help me repeat my ads every so often on her types of websites. I was whining about not getting any business for my HVAC company. I asked my friend if they had seen my ads. She was being honest when she asked what ads. I told her I was doing online marketing through facebook and twitter, but I hadn’t had any responses. She told me that was tough since most ads needed to be paid for and they could be expensive. I had no idea what she was talking about, so I asked. When she was finished explaining about how to take out facebook ads and how to put true ads on twitter and other sites, I felt stupid. All the time I spent doing my own online marketing was not even online marketing.
