Need help getting started with social media?

Social Media is new and sexy, social media is not going away. And if you are a small business you wouldn’t want it to.

You can now contact thousands of people that you never could before. You can also have your customers do your marketing for you as Facebook fans and Twitter followers share their experiences with you and your business.

What should you be doing on social media?

  • Increase loyalty by showing the real you
  • Answer and address complaints quickly
  • Create amazing incentives
  • Capitalize on and boost your word of mouth marketing

New research shows that word-of-mouth marketing has grown exponentially on social media. Why?

Social Media makes brand management easier, help you build relationships and brand awareness, and can spark innovation through customer feedback and competitive research. 

Give your audience and customers a reason to talk about you. Provide excellent online customer service, make it easy for people to tell others about you and give them a reason to laugh. All of your efforts will likely result in positive reviews and extended social proof.

People share on social media for the same reasons brands do—to build their reputations and establish themselves as useful sources of information. When you provide an outlet for people to meet this goal, everyone’s happy.

Social media lets you increase brand awareness and reach with little to no budget.

While it may offer a less-expensive marketing option, social media marketing can sometimes cost more in time than in money. That’s why it’s so important to start with a strategic vision for how social media can contribute to building your business.
