Social Media Success Story – Mike Potts, Echo Acoustics

socialmediaapprovedby Mike Potts, Echo Acoustics

“When I started out freelancing, I promoted my impending move on LinkedIn, before I made ‘the leap’.

Through that communication, I managed to secure some work before I’d even left my previous company!

In the following year or so LinkedIn has proved to be a goldmine of contacts and leads. My business turnover doubled in year two with a 50% turnover increase in year three and it is continuing to grow.

Linkedin is great, but it has to be used intelligently and followed up with personal contact.

People are more likely to employ or recommend you if they’ve actually met you and ideally, got to like you as well.

I mainly get my stories and content pushed out through now Property Aspects Magazine using Linkedin and Twitter.

Through this, I’ve attracted calls from complete strangers who have found me from as far afield as the Middle East, based on the content created, the way I’ve written my biography and the keywords I have used in there”.
