To increase your following and take your social media reach offline, you’ll want to take every opportunity to share your social networking profiles. The more people that become aware of your presence on the social networks that you’re a part of, the more opportunity there is for you to connect, friend and find followers.

Business Cards – make your business card social media friendly and include links to your Facebook Page, Twitter, LinkedIn or YouTube accounts, make it easy for new contacts to find you or your business
