What social media sites are the most important to use?
Which social media sites to use, depends on your type of business. I always recommend at least using Facebook with a link to a Twitter account. Instagram is becoming very important for getting in front of Gen-X and Gen-Y customers. YouTube is an excellent platform to get videos of product demos, facility tours, and business introductions online. YouTube is owned by Google so it will help your search engine ranking, as well, if you have a presence there.
How do I find out if I own my own domain name?
To find out if you own your own domain name, go to https://who.godaddy.com/?ci=
It is CRITICAL that you check this to be sure that you own your domain name and have control of that account. Be sure that the email addresses associated to the Registrant, Admin, and Tech contacts are kept up to date using your domain hosting account. Make sure you have the username and password to access the domain hosting account for your website.
Your domain name is your online brand. Make sure you own it AND can control it.
