Entrepreneur & CEO Valerie Jennings Reviews SEO Tips for Entrepreneurs, Marketers & Social Media Professionals

KANSAS CITY, MO--(Marketwire - August 25, 2010) -  Valerie Jennings, entrepreneur and CEO of Jennings Social Media Marketing, reviewed tips about how to use social media to drive traffic to websites, build brand awareness and protect a brand in a new podcast.

Listen to podcast:

Jennings said that one way to drive traffic to sites such as Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, a blog or a video channel is by using social media press releases that are highly search engine optimized. "Marketwire is a good resource to use if you are trying to increase your brand awareness. Additionally, it is important to identify a primary website that you are really going to focus on. I highly recommend using WordPress to attract visitors and continuously incorporate new content on the site. The search engines are constantly checking the site for new updates so these will be valuable resources for SEO," said Jennings.

While social media is advantageous, Jennings said that business owners and marketers must take certain online precautions to protect their brand. "It is important for business owners to reserve a Twitter account, set up a company Facebook page and a LinkedIn profile. If these sites are set up properly and managed well, it will prevent competitors from trying to hijack your company's brand," said Jennings.
