This is also a great way to offer them the chance to provide you will valuable feedback before you launch to the general public.

2. Use Social Media To Offer Tips and Tricks Of the Trade

If you are trying to prove that you have the best brand of your product on the market, then you can use social media to put your money where your mouth is, so to speak.

If you are selling handbags, create a video showing off the best features of it compared to others. If you offer services, created a video showing how your service compares to the rest. This can allow you to show the value of your company beyond just words on a website.

4. Consistently Interact With Your Visitors
