Digital Brand Expressions Launches Jump Start Social Media(SM)
KINGSTON, N.J., Feb. 25 — You wouldn’t throw a snowball or have a pillow fight with a co-worker and you should avoid these and other annoying applications when you’re networking/job hunting for business purposes on Facebook, says Digital Brand Expressions, which today launched Jump Start Social Media, a new service designed to help professionals accelerate their adoption of social media for personal brand management.
The service offers busy professionals and “newbies” streamlined set-up of their profile on Facebook and LinkedIn by Jump Start Social Media’s authorities. By filling out a questionnaire, executives and businesspeople can have a social media expert set up their Facebook and LinkedIn profiles for a fee.
“It can take hours or even days to learn your way around Facebook and LinkedIn,” says Niki Fielding, president, Digital Brand Expressions. “With the help of Jump Start Social Media’s new service, you can have a professional profile quickly uploaded, allowing you to network with the 175 million Facebook members or the 35 million LinkedIn members.”
In January, the number of unemployed persons was 11.6 million, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. As the unemployment rate rises, people are turning to social networking sites to make important business connections. Many recruiters post vacancies and search for passive candidates on LinkedIn. Facebook, one of the best-known social media sites on the Internet today, has become an important way of networking outside your circle.
“One of the main reasons people avoid Facebook and LinkedIn is that they look like they require too much work,” says Ms. Fielding. “Having a social media expert set up your profile simplifies the process and allows you to get started on your job hunt or new business development efforts almost immediately.”
Another quick start option is to purchase one of Jump Start’s easy reference guides to Facebook or LinkedIn for $9.95 each, which help business executives make the most of the time they spend learning to use these social media sites so they can leverage the benefits much faster.
