As well as plumbing advice, he’s happy to share his thoughts on using social media as a business tool.
“It’s a great business tool, you can learn a lot from it, and you can meet many people within the trades so that you don’t feel alone.
I recommend that anyone starting in it not get caught up in what they see online; not everything is the truth; people are usually putting up their best work or just what they want you to see. So not everything you see is the truth, don’t get caught up in negativity.
Whatever you put into it, you’ll get out. If you put a lot of time into social media, you’ll get a lot out of it; it just takes time.”
Why Use Social Media In The Trades?
Not only is social media a great place to meet like-minded people, network with those in your industry and just generally have fun, it can also be hugely beneficial for business. While it does require time and effort, the outcome is worth it when you find yourself enjoying your job more and seeing business boom.
