The Triumphant Return – TeacherCes Podcast

After months of waiting, The TeacherCes Podcast has made its triumphant return. The return has been long-awaited as listeners have been anxiously awaiting the return of the long-running podcast. Although that reads like a press release written from a great publicist, that is not exactly the case.

I decided to throw caution to the wind and release an episode of my pet project. No special guest, just one mic and myself. I am a stickler for sound quality so forgive me for being slightly vexed if the sound is not up to par. I also did it in one take, as I hate to edit. Additionally, editing takes up so much time and usually causes delays in my show being released.

Take a listen and thank you in advance for leaving a comment on iTunes, so my show will be easier to find. If you have any ideas for topics, leave them in the suggestions below . . .

The logic is, the higher quality your content is, the more chances your followers will grow. By liking, commenting on and hitting the share button. Focus on creating quality pieces and spend the time to research.  Boost your highest quality posts while sharing industry news content. It is the best way to keep your followers interested in less effort.

#3: Give enough information about your business

One of the key points of adding trust and confidence is to give information about the details of your business. Having said that, people need to be informed about all the details that are relevant. Important information involved your Website, working hours, description, contacts, personal interest and etc.

#4: Grow a community around it

Another way to update your Facebook Page is to grow a community around it by making a group. Groups can help to grow your page by bringing new clients/customers to a topic that is centered around your business. It is all about community growth and bringing the customers to you. Once you have that, your Facebook page will get the likes you want and a natural following.

Another way to make a big impact on your Facebook page is to increase your brand awareness and gain new customers. This can be done by leveraging your existing customers. How do you leverage your new customers? You can do this through recommendation. This is an updated tool that will now allow fans and followers to post text, tags, and photos directly on your page for others to see.

Also, encourage your customers to provide reviews about their experiences with your business. These reviews will appear across Facebook. When people are searching, these reviews are great for bringing new customers to your business. This will then extend your reach to new potential customers.

By inviting your existing friends, customers, and clients to like and share your Facebook Page, they are helping to grow your audience.
