Everyone who uses the Internet has a digital footprint, so it is not something to be worried about. However, it is wise to consider what trail of data you are leaving behind and how you monitor, leverage the content to get leads to your business.
Publishing a blog and posting social media updates are popular ways to expand your digital footprint. Every tweet you post on Twitter, every status update you publish on Facebook, and every photo you share on Instagram contributes to your digital footprint.
The more you spend time on social networking websites, the larger your digital footprint will be.
Even “liking” a page or a Facebook post adds to your digital footprint, since the data is saved on Facebook’s servers.
I will show you the approaches, tools, and techniques to build for your business an online presence, attract an audience, provide helpful content, and finally how to make some money.
None of this comes quickly and will take real work to accomplish.
This site is for those willing to learn what really works and by working hard to achieve success.
YOUR First Requirement is Your Own Website with a Blog
There are a few free choices like Blogger and WordPress.com. I don’t recommend them for business because:
- You have no control over platform changes.
- You do not have full control of your domain name.
- You have limited control over design and functionality.
For these 3 reasons alone is why I recommend using a self-hosted WordPress website.
