Social Media 101 – Social Media Quickstarter

Writing books might seem like a Herculean task but it can provide impressive results for the growth of your business with minimal effort on your part. These are just five ways you can grow your business by writing a book.

1. Gain New Clients, Followers, and Subscribers

There is a certain amount of prestige that goes along with writing a book. Self-publishing or independent publishing, as it is now known, is more popular and easier than ever. Getting a contract with a traditional publisher is harder than ever. Either way, you will gain a great deal of respect with the clients and prospects for your nursing business simply for having a book available in the marketplace. 
In 1995, I met my first mentor Laura Gasparis Vonfrolio-a former President of NNBA- how lucky can a girl get? She challenged me, questioned me, disagreed with me at almost every turn- and thank goodness I listened and paid close attention. With her guidance and the expertise of several other NNBA leaders, this is one staff nurse who has achieved success-but by no means on my own.

If you have ever considered taking the path of owning your own nurse education business, let me share my #1 piece of advice, and that is listen to those who have achieved and sustained success. In your own journey, you may come across people who are telling you the exact opposite of what you are planning or developing. 
It’s time to go social. We’ll make it simple.

If you’re wondering if social media marketing is right for your business, the verdict is in — social media is a great way to drive repeat business and to attract new customers.
