Hi Susan3
here's how you can start
1.look at what are you’re trying to promote. What are your assets? Who are your target customers? It may seem obvious.
2.SIGN-UP FOR SOCIAL MEDIA: Facebook, Twitter, Google+, YouTube and LinkedIn. Facebook allows you to create a business page
3.FIND A SOCIAL MEDIA MANAGER: before you start posting content, requesting friends and adding followers, sign-up for a social media manager such as and HootSuite. It allows you to manage all of your accounts on one site
4.POST UPDATES: It’s important to have content on your social media pages before you start adding friends and followers
5. FIND FRIENDS AND FOLLOWERS: Twitter and Google+ are easiest. Search keywords to find followers.
