Grow Your Business With Social Media - featured story from La Prensa

SAN ANTONIO get out of your comfort zone to get what you want is not easy, but if you have the necessary tools to do so, there is no reason not to be successful in what you do. Gary and Lynette Bledsoe are the perfect example of how social media help and change lives, provided if you know how to use it properly.
"I started in 2008 working for the company Avon, but I did not work so well because they did not know how to promote it," Lynette said.
The Bledsoe family is made up by the couple, their two children, 13 and 9 and three children who live outside the city.
When they arrived in San Antonio in June 2011, she and her husband decided to join forces and work as representatives of Avon, using as key to their success, social networks.
"If not for Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and other tools of this type, we would not have been able to let us know and neither had been able to increase our sales of the way we did," said Gary.
"We use Facebook for fun, but alo put quotes from important people, perhaps with a good car in the picture or object that we know that people would like to have," said Gary.
The couple used the term "ILT" which means in Spanish "Investing, Learning and Teach" to increase sales and to show the process to those who seek.
"For people to find us on Facebook or any means, we have to add value to the page," said Gary. "For example if we want to put the phrase of the day, then look for something fun for people to become familiar with us and want to visit our website," he added.
Currently Lynette, meanwhile, has nearly 5000 followers on Facebook and Gary with a little over 4000.
Although the couple came to San Antonio without knowing without knowing much about the tastes of its population, now a little more acquainted with the community, no matter where they are.
For this, the couple is also engaged in offering courses in social communication that can be found in your page HERE 
"We have trained people working in Avon and also people who have their own business and want to increase sales or visits to their social media sites," Lynette said.
"We believe in helping others because somehow we receive such help too," Gary said.
Lynette was also in an  Avon commercial for the brand. And Gary started working for this company shortly after his wife did.
During the interview, the couple said they would have not reached the sales achieved had it not been for social media and other means.
"The way we communicate has changed a lot, but we have to adapt and learn. Many people do not know how to use technological means not touched because they grow with it, however it is never late to learn, "concluded Gary Bledsoe.
