Are You Missing Sales Opportunities?
Convey Your Message Clearly
Avoid Embarassing Mistakes
What you post and how you interact on social media can dramatically impact your profits and reputation. (You’ve heard the horror stories!)
To be a social media success story, it’s imperative to learn best practices and understand each social media platform’s unique culture.
Help Your Customers Relate to You
Create Connection and Curiosity
You can build a community on social media, if it’s done right. It’s not all about the number of followers you have, though yes, of course, growth is critical, too. It’s about engaging in a meaningful way with the ones you have and building from there.
Improve Your Branding
Boost Your Reputation
How long have you been in business? What’s the story of how and why you started your business? How do your products and customer service stand out? These are the types of questions you should be answering on your social media platforms.
Of course, post breaking news from your industry! If I believe you know your business and especially if I see friends recommend you, I am more likely to buy from you than your competitors.
