Ok, you’ve decided you are ready and you’ve set up your business Facebook Page, created a Twitter account, started a blog, and added a company page to LinkedIn. Congratulations!!! Now, what? If you’re like a lot of other small business owners out there, the challenge comes in using these resources effectively to create a social media presence online that adds value to your business.
Post a promotion
But you should only do this occasionally. More importantly, you must have engaging posts, share insights, and build relationships within these social networks – with individuals and other businesses. Of course, doing so can be confusing and time-consuming for a small business.
Stick with it
All too often, we see companies lose momentum or even abandon their social media efforts if they don’t see immediate sales results. Unfortunately, by walking away from a Facebook Page or Twitter account, they are missing out on benefits far exceeding one or two immediate sales. A recent article on sixrevisions.com reinforces how Social Media can be a huge factor in SEO (Search Engine Optimization) and how utilizing these tools can boost a company’s overall search engine ranking. Beyond improving one’s “findability” online, creating an online community of friends, fans, and followers can lead to improved customer retention and provide an outlet for inexpensive promotional marketing.
