Social sharing – use it!
In previous posts on
this blog we talked about how to ensure you peerwith.expert page is optimized
for finding clients: profile image, optimize your weblink, pick your keywords and subject areas carefully and a good about me text.
At Peerwith we feel
strongly about empowering experts, which is why we created http://peerwith.expert/ where experts can receive direct service requests.
Did you know that now about 30% of the requests
on Peerwith originate from the peerwith.expert pages?
Share your expert page
peerwith.expert page when- and wherever you can. This will help to drive
traffic to the Peerwith marketplace, more specifically, as direct requests for
you. A “direct request” means that the request is only visible for you and not
for other experts. You will receive an email notification and the service
request is visible on your Dashboard, not the open requests overview. The
client expects your response and your response only.
explained how you can optimize your weblink in
a previous blog post. A good web-link
is easier to promote. Once you are happy with the web-link, start sharing it.
Send it by email to friends and clients. Add the web-link to your signature of
all outgoing emails. Add the web-link to other profile/social pages or your own
website. Mention the web-link as much as possible.
If you visit your Expert
page, you should see the share-feature on the right side of the screen:
These social sharing
buttons allow you to easily share your peerwith.expert page (weblink) on your
favourite social channels like Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn. When you do this,
make sure to tag @Peerwith. We are on Facebook (www.facebook.com/peerwith), Twitter (twitter.com/peerwith) and LinkedIn. We
will be happy to re-tweet, share back, tag you, etc. If you want, contact us
via your favourite social channel to discuss.
Noted the “+” button
at the bottom of the social sharing buttons? There are many more social
channels you can share your peerwith.expert page on. We are not active on all
channels, but don’t let that keep you from using it.
In the next blog post we will talk more about the more advanced share-include features to include your
request service button or ultimately the peerwith.expert badge.
