At Senior Marketing Specialists we understand the power of social media. Two things constantly come up in the business world, personal brand and social media. Both are incredibly important, but tackling something so essential can be overwhelming. Let us help!
Getting Started With Social Media
Check out the training below to get yourself started on the right track.
Part 1 of the training serious will walk you through creating your brand, working through what is important to include, where, and how. To get started, download the SMS workbook; Social Media for Agents. This workbook, originally created as part of the SMS Sales Summit, will help you begin your branding process. Have this workbook handy as you watch part one of our Social Media training below.
Now that you have your basic brand created, the second step is to tell the world. In part 2 of our training we will explore two popular social media platforms and how to effectively market yourself.

A great place to find ready to use content for your website, social media, or blog is the News section of the SMS Webpage (https://smsteam.net/newsfeed/). Our marketing team regularly create media kits about relevant health topics that are ready to share via your online method of choice. Just a few examples of the media kits available are a Stress Awareness Media Kit, Kidney Health Media Kit, Heart Health Awareness Kit, and a Breast Cancer Media Kit. New kits are posted on a regular basis, so check back on the News page often.
