Whether you are speaking to your class, giving a toast at a wedding, or presenting an idea to co-workers, you will have to encounter public speaking at some point in your life. I am Mitch Brown, the Director of the Speakers Center here at SIUC, a second year M.A. Student in Communication Studies, and a CMST 101 Intro to Oral Communication G.T.A. (Graduate Teaching Assistant). With my experience, I am here to teach you how to successfully overcome your fear of public speaking.
In this digital age, if you wish to have an online presence with your business or a personal portfolio you are going to need to have a website. You can use social media so people can find you, but if you wish to fully customize the user experience you will have to create your own. Luckily, there are many websites builder tools you can use that make the process simple.
It can be challenging to find all these ideas for social media content when you must post something every single day on multiple platforms. Fresh, quality content that gets a lot of users’ attention is exactly what companies strive for every day. When people become excited to see what you are going to post next, that is when they become customers.
Advertising can help your business in a many different ways. One of the best ways to get free marketing is by using a social media platform for your business. You will not need to pay for ads and, if you follow trends, posting regularly can positively affect your customers. Twitter sits at number four on the most visited websites online.
