Website Tip: Make sure you have links to all of your social media networks on your website
Day #32 / 365 Tips! Wahoo Welcome February – Spring please please please be here soon!!! Today’s tip is a reminder to make sure that you add social media icons to your website so that visitors can easily connect with you!
Second tip – make sure they link out correctly!!!
Third tip – don’t have an icon if it doesn’t link out to your own social media channel! (no really I see this – perhaps your webmaster added the icons but you didn’t have social media set up at the time so when you click on the Twitter icon it just goes to www.twitter.com) Make sure it links correctly so when the user clicks out it goes to your account 🙂
Links to your social media channels not only help visitors to your website connect with you – they also give the impression that you are active and social therefore running an up to date business with your SH*T together.
Another side note as a tip – you can take this one step further and add a social media feed to your website. For example adding a simple Instagram Widget to your website will then show a constant stream of updated and new images to your visitors. Win Win!
**If you are using WordPress I have used a plugin for clients recently that is called “speed contact bar”. I really like this for contact info and social media link outs**
