The other day we wrote a blog post about how it’s never too late to start your own internship program, and how plenty of prospective interns are still without a summer internship. We also talked about how internships are a year ‘round thing, and not just a summer activity.
Today we want to share with you the top 3 internships that you can create for your company, that are not only guaranteed to generate more sales, more leads, more revenue and more profits for your company, but at the same time are also going to flood you with resumes from prospective interns wanting to intern with you company.
In no particular order, here are the top 3 internships you can offer right now, no matter WHAT kind of business you own:
1. Social Media Marketing Internship: If you’re not yet promoting your business on sites like Facebook and Twitter, or you simply want to grow the number of “fans”, “followers” or “likes” for your company, then a social media marketing intern is perfect for you. If you’re spending too much of your own time on social media, and realize that you need to delegate this task to someone else, a social media intern is also perfect for you. We’re also seeing a number of businesses generate more sales and leads from social media, because that’s where their prospects and customers are “hanging out” online. Having someone (ie your intern) interact with them on a daily basis not only keeps them engaged, but it’s of great benefit to your business.
2. Search Engine Optimization (SEO) Internship: If your website isn’t getting enough traffic, or doesn’t come up in the search engine rankings for your particular keywords, an SEO intern is perfect for you. Don’t have a clue what keywords you should be trying to rank for? Again, you need a Search Engine Optimization intern. As for as video marketing goes, did you realize that YouTube is the world’s 2nd largest search engine (after Google)? Adding video to your SEO strategy is not only smart, but something that interns are excited about. They find it easy to quickly create and edit videos for your business.
3. Blogging/PR Internship: If you don’t yet have a website, or a blog, then creating one on the world’s #1 blogging platform (WordPress) is an absolute must. And the best part is that WordPress is a free open source software! If you do already have a site (or a blog), perhaps you want to add more blogs (or sites), or you need someone to create and contribute posts or content. An intern is perfect for these (and many other) tasks. Not to mention that by using some simple PR tricks and writing some basic press releases, you can gain instant credibility and media exposure for your business. Doesn’t that sound like a powerful internship that will help grow your business?
Now before you get too excited, I know that a ton of our readers are already thinking to themselves “All this sounds great, but I don’t have the expertise to teach and manage an intern doing all of these things”.
While a valid point, we want to assure you that this isn’t even an obstacle, and literally ANYONE can have an intern doing all of these tasks, even if they know nothing about social media, search engine optimization, video marketing, blogging, WordPress or press releases.
And to prove this to you, we want to invite you to a brand new webinar that we’re hosting next week. We’ve never before released the content in this webinar, and we’re going to go in depth on how you can structure these 3 internships, how you can quickly and easily find the interns for them.
We’ll be announcing the date and time and registration link for this webinar very soon, so please check back here, or subscribe to our newsletter if you haven’t already, to get priority VIP notification.
