The year is 2015. We all know everything has moved to the digital world. Social media is proof of the digital era for business relationships, customer service and reputations. Every business on social media is reachable.
If someone can’t accomplish what they want by phone or in-store, they hop on social media and let everyone know. This is why it is vital for businesses to have a social media presence. It’s time for research and development. Research where your customers are on social media. What are they looking for? What intrigues them? You must know what your audience wants to see before developing your social media strategies.
What social media platforms do you have set up? Do you have the major platforms set up? Are they optimized for your audience’s viewing? Having each platform setup properly will help your customers and potential clients find you. Make sure you fill out as much information as possible. Be informational, detailed and helpful. This will make life easier for your customers. After you’ve conducted your research and setup all platforms, it’s time to start posting and watch how your audience interacts with each post. You will be able to learn which posts work best and which do not. If you see more likes and shares from photos rather than just a post with content, you know what to do!
