Why social media and how to use it


From a business networking point of view, this is it. See sample. This should be your main free newsfeed and blog via your company page. It’s where you network. Please think about the content you post – it’s not Facebook or Instagram! The analytics are the best. MiE are experts at this channel. Let others do your marketing for you for free!

Build your client list by 20 new clients per post. The cost per MiE new content post (as you see on the “Sample”) is around £150. Ask to see our sample analytics system, and see what we can do for your brand or company’s Social Media Marketing.

This is your own TV station – a very powerful free tool. Many people under estimate its reach, especially for the US market.


A Facebook platform, but with people you don’t know, it’s for mobile users; a powerful tool for consumer marketing and public relations. The wild west of marketing, which still allows soft-porn to advertise things, need I say more…?


Twitter is a 140 character micro blog. This is where news happens – but it’s full of people with too much spare time! Avoid unless you are a media luvvie, a crank or maybe just a twit who cannot stop tweeting!


Facebook is a non-business social platform that generates business through awareness. Great for a hobby business. Great if you want to sell old toot.

Will my social media optimisation be handled only by you?
Yes we will do it as an admin for you.

How long will it take?
It’s not necessarily the time factor but what’s achieved in that time. However, I usually expect a media session to be between 15 – 30 minutes, allowing me sufficient time to change several significant features on your social media set-ups. I correct my mistakes at my own expense.

If my social media tools seem okay then why should I want to change them?
You will be surprised to know that by not checking your social media performance on a regular basis, you will not know if it’s achieving its aims. With my analytic data collection, we can identify your goals and implement them on session 1.

How soon can I get started? Right away.
