Everyone, not in beekeeping, always tells me you really need to get on social media to promote your business. I don't have FB or any other like that for myself so I'm not familiar with its effectiveness for promoting business.
So, curious if it has helped you? Any advice?
As a 1st time beekeeper this spring (who has numerous books & been reading for a long time) social media, helped me find local people to buy from, a multi-week class I'm taking right now & this website. I have already used this site & my classes to modify my initial game plan for this spring. Reading alone doesn't do it. You need to talk to experienced people and for some like myself, the light flickers, but comes on alot brighter if I get to put my hands on it.
Any social media, FB, Instagram, etc, has features that will have positive impact. Proceed with caution, for every positive you must guard for a negative response. When dealing with people unknown by you, results are all over the map. Have fun!
