Skyrocket your Presence Online with these iPhone Apps

Skyrocket your Presence Online with these iPhone Apps

Creating a lasting online footprint for a business or new product takes a lot of time and effort. No matter which industry you’re in, chances are you have competitors who are battling just as hard for visibility on the Internet.

It’s gotten to the point that business owners and public relations specialists need to be “on” 24/7 to try to get an edge on the competition. As your scour the Internet for the best pricing for SEO marketing, it’s good to remember that with today’s smart phones no one has to sit at their computer all day to keep their company or product in the public eye.

Apple’s iPhone has been the market leader of smart phones since its release in 2007. The iOS app store has many programs for download, many of them free, that will go a long way to keep people talking about — and linking to — your company or product. Here are just a few.

How to Use Tweetdeck to Keep the Conversation Going

TweetDeck is a free app on Apple’s app store that gives you the best of the two behemoths of the social media space: Facebook and Twitter. Instead of managing separate accounts all day long, Tweetdeck will allow any business owner to view their Facebook timeline and Twitter feed simultaneously and post to both accounts with one tap of the finger. A high profile on Facebook and Twitter will lead to lots of extra eyes on your company and a better ranking in most search engine algorithms.

Use Yelp to Create a Five Star Buzz

Yelp is arguably the most popular site for business reviews on the Internet. It’s so popular, in fact, that Apple is now including restaurant reviews from Yelp in its search results in Maps and other applications.

If you’re willing to take the time to thank the users who give you positive reviews and put in the work to douse any fires from any negative press you get, you’ll be starting a two-way conversation that may have happy customers talking about you all across the Internet.

Do You Want to Keep up with your Blog at all Times?

One of the most popular sites out there to create a blog to promote your company or product is WordPress. While it’s easy to moderate comments and post new articles while at the office, it can be a bit more difficult to respond to an online complaint while you’re going to the grocery. Luckily, WordPress offers a robust and free application that will allow you to moderate comments and post new items to your blog from anywhere.

Being proactive about your online presence has never been easier. What are you waiting for?
