But...how do you know whether you are making progress, there are plenty of "SoMe" gurus, (me included), who will charge you for education and may even do all the hard work for your business with an even heavier fee.
They use a clever method, which is now known as gamification, basically a clever algorithm that calculates what you are doing and then produces the results in a clever graphical representation, allowing you to adjust your performance. Thinks of it as a game that you are playing and every time you need to get better at the game you are told where you need to improve.
I have not seen anything better as yet, but let me know if you have found something better.
See the example below for my Twitter account. To be honest (and I always am), you don't need to get an account with them to understand what you required to do, basically just adopt what I am showing you in these images.
In the image at the top of this post, there are some great suggestions on what you need to do for your various "SoMe" accounts as well, and just to expand on one of them;
Facebook Fan Page | Ask 2 questions in 6 days | Means that you need to post a question on your Facebook fan page every 6 days as minimum in order to get better exposure and engagement with your fans and grow your fan base. Get the general idea?
Have a look at the image with Twitter suggestions, just copy these down somewhere and start acting upon them.
What SplashCube does, you can do for yourself, as long as you are disciplined and if you are not, then go ahead and open account with them. (By the way I am not affiliated to them in anyway, I just thought it was a "cool tool", which I felt I should share with you).
