Today I will be writing about Twitter and how you can use it for your business growth. If you already have a Twitter account how often do you "tweet"? I think if you start off by posting tweets about three times a day you are on your way to growing your contacts within twitter and making NEW contacts.
By tweeting your business specials, information, insights or just responding to your "followers" comments in general you will start to build up your Social Media presence and attract others to your tweets. Being interesting while tweeting is always in your advantage. No one wants to read the same tweets over and over or tweets just about what you offer ALL the time.
Make your tweets interesting! Post about WHY you started your business or maybe highlight a client of the week or special interest. By keeping others interested in your "tweeting" you will not only gain more clients or contacts but keep yourself involved in the Social Media outlet of Twitter.
I hope these tips helped today and if your company needs help with setting up a Twitter account or wants to learn how to tweet we can help!
Today I will be sharing some tips for using Facebook Fan pages to the advantage of your business Social Media Marketing.
When I log into Facebook, I first notice status updates. I am more likely to look at a status update with something interesting like a special or promotion with a picture, then JUST text. I try to tell my clients to put interesting images or even their logo or something seasonal in the tag line of their status update. Put something interesting that YOU think would catch others attention. Using caps or interesting/exciting wording can really make a difference.
I often tell business owners that having a Facebook fan page isn't enough, you have to be active with posting. This will let your customers and future clients know that you are available and interested in communicating with them. There is such a thing as also posting TOO much.
These are a few tips that I hope you find helpful with your Social Media Marketing.
Not sure where to start with a Facebook fan page or what to post?
Happy Friday & hope everyone has a great holiday weekend. Today I will be writing about Social Media Marketing and provide a few tips of how to make the most of your social media sites. It is not only important in today's business world to HAVE social media for your business, but to be ACTIVE on these sites once they are set up.
Your social media sites will be of no benefit to your company if you don't post on it at least a few times a week and keep up with it. I suggest to my clients to start off by posting two to three times a week on ALL their social media sites(yes blogs too!). I know this might seem like a lot for someone that isn't used to being online as much, but trust me it will not only help your business but help you gain more social media skills to further your growth in today's technology. Another suggestion I give my clients is to post VALUE over quantity. For instance, don't post continuously about your website or what your services are. Change it up a bit and feature a monthly special or have a "fan" contest on Facebook. It'll keep your customers interested and draw NEW customers into your fan base. Social Media Marketing is different for each company, but consistency always wins. Reach out to your customers and make sure they KNOW you not only care that they choose to do business with you, but that you also appreciate them. That's my social media advice for the day, keep on being "social".
