PEARLS OF WISDOM FROM IAN CLEARY OF RAZOR SOCIAL

 

“Start within a focused niche to help yourself standout”

 

“You must have good content, most bloggers don’t put enough effort into their content and don’t get the reach or exposure they expect”

 

“Build Relationships on a Strategic Level & Business Opportunities Will Open Up”

 

“Our goal is to produce a better piece of content than is out there today to beat our competitors”

 

“Got an idea for content and found it already exists? Present it in a different format with a different angle”

 

“Don’t have an audience? Find Influencers who do and include tips from them so they will share it with their followers!”
