OK, so my social media marketing guy keeps bugging me for blog posts. What the heck…doesn’t he have anything better to do? He keeps telling me about all the people who read these and make comments and who visit Night and Day Resume’s FB Fanpage and the website and that’s great, but I want customers to visit our site.

Just as social media marketing is the new frontier in advertising a business and offering a great service, having people appreciate it and then patronize you with their business…so is social media to promote your resume on websites like Linked In, Twitter, Google + and whatever other site where you can create a network of folks to refer off of and let them know you are available.
Sure, you need to have your resume on the job boards, but don’t just expect to be noticed, you have to stir things up a bit. Linked In is a great social networking tool for professionals.
