Duplicate Social Links

Social Media Marketing has become one of the key concepts for business. There are many reasons why. There are three main ones we would like to emphasize on:

  • Social media allow you to increase your client base. You never know who is going to like and share the content you have created, right?
  • Social media websites perform in real time. So, they show your prospective customers that you are professionally active at the moment.
  • In addition, via social media, you can stimulate the customers you already have by reminding them about your services or surprising them with new offers.

Let’s see how you can actually add social links to your online personal page. With MotoCMS personal pages templates, like this Wildlife Photography Courses Website, it is as easy as pie.

Now when we realize how important social links are for your portfolio website, it is high time to figure out where to place them. We would advise putting social links both at the top and at the bottom of each page of your website.

It may seem a bit too much at first. But it is hardly possible that your prospective customers will be scrolling to the top or the bottom just to find social links. So, you will only benefit from the attention your website get via social media if you duplicate the social links.
