Social Networking is one of the biggest crazes on the internet and off line.
Everyone does it. Some profit from it to get leads and sales. Others use it to gain status of whatever it is they like to draw attention to, i.e. jokes, faith, hobbies,etc. A few out there are trying just trying to have fun and land a peice of booty. I tend to favor both lead and hobby preferences.
Here are my top tips for those that use social media for marketing .
1. Become an expert.
People want to buy through the business with the industry expert or celebrity. You can use web to become this specialist / celebrity. You know that the customers are here, so you can very easily insert yourself in plus begin answering queries to get the trust of the consumer.
Join groups related in your business on the social websites sites and answer inquiries and just generally be involved. Make sure that people know that you will be a business owner, and sooner rather than later, you will become the check out person.
2. Tell Us Who You Are.
What do we know about you? When I Google you, what is the first result? Make sure you spell out, in multiple places, who you are, what you’re trying to sell, and how it will benefit your customers.
I am learning how to how platforms differ — Facebook is different from Google+, which is different from Twitter not only in functional ways, but in the way consumers use them.
Also how to tie in online events with offline events. Both being part of One source has proven to Me that few good people do much much more than tons of FREELOADERS what I call them.
4. Don’t damage your brand.
Worst case, you damage your brand. If you’ve set up pages on social networks and don’t post or don’t respond to customers’ comments on these pages, you’re committing social media suicide. Not responding to customer questions or complaints escalates dissatisfaction and damages your brand. It also gives dissatisfied customers something else rally supporters against your brand. Not rewarding folks to engage with you (by responding to them) withers future engagement. (Give the people who interact along with you the most special offers.)
(In closing, I think it goes without saying…..not everyone will want what you’re selling. It happens to the best of us. Here’s what ou should do…….go on to the next one!-DUH!) Ok, gotta go enjoy dinner with the family. TTYL! -QC Super Mom
