We know you’ve heard of social media for business and at least have a pretty good idea of what it is and what it can do, but what can it do for your business? Simple – it can increase your exposure, enforce your brand and more importantly bring in customers. The ‘how’ is where most business owners get in a bit of a snag. After all, your job is to run your business, not to read incessant posts on your Facebook page about meaningless drivel (at least drivel that’s meaningless to your business).
Have a Plan When Using Social Media for Business
As in life generally and your business specifically, you have to have a plan to reach your goals. The same goes for social media for business. Think of the systems your business already has in place for promotion and getting new customers. Do you have sales? Announce new items? Introduce new services? Plan events? Chances are if you own a brick and mortar business, you already do some of these things. If these systems are working for you, utilizing social media for business can maximize them.
How Social Media for Business is Done
Organizing all your promotions, events, sales, announcements, etc. using different social media outlets can be very time consuming. Making sure you plan ahead, create a calendar with every one of these items, then promote them on at least 3 different social media sites well in advance of the event or happening, in the days leading up to and the day of to maximize exposure. While you’re doing this, take time to read and respond to posts on your Facebook page and find posts on Twitter that correspond to your industry and reply to those as well. That’s just where you can start your social media for business campaign. Sound like a lot to do? It is.
