Identifying “Social” Mistakes In Business

Identifying “Social” Mistakes In Business
  • Opening Intro -

    Till to this day, both small and big business owners have failed to identify the importance of Social Media for steering their commercial aspirations. Even if they have understood its significance they fail to utilize it properly.

-------------------------------------

They might be found engaged for hours in front of their favorite Social Media platforms but sadly enough without aligning them with their business goals, or metrics.

It’s important to understand that Social Media marketing works on real time basis unlike its traditional counterpart. Just as you get results faster in Social Media, you are required to act equally fast as well- identifying target communities, creating your own community and finding your target customers.

All the influencers out there are actually present in Social Media. The only option you have is to work towards bolstering your brand visibility here. There is absolutely no point in misinterpreting the power of Social Media or else under utilizing it and then bouncing back to the traditional ways of promoting your product.

The opportunity to create meaningful relationships with customers is greater on Social Media than it is in the conventional marketing platforms. If you have a set plan with due metrics (as far as your SEO and content are concerned), desired levels of engagement on Social Media, and have a knack for boosting micro segments then you can be assured that you have hit the right path.

Here are a few ways by which you can bolster your Social Media presence thereby strengthening your online presence as well.

What Do You Need To Be Successful On Social Media?

Interaction, interaction and more interaction. Yes, modern day users expect more humanized brand behavior. You can’t really afford to act all stiff neck with them. A regular interaction by means of contests, quizzes, reverting to complaints and acting on them remains essential.

Check your “tone” while interacting with them as well. There is little room for error when you are establishing bonds online, especially with the fast retweets, shares, repins on the fray. But there is really nothing as effective as owning up your mistakes in case there is any.

Make a point to acknowledge users who have pointed out to mistakes and rectify them as well. Right from identifying communities to creating one of your own and identifying target customers, you are constantly involved in the process of building bonds and not mere commercial relationships. Therefore there is really no harm in “believing” in your customers. Believe that they would forgive errors if they are down up and clarified.

There is really no point in evasion. If you still believe that you can delete erroneous posts from your page or profile, when several of your followers have already viewed and are “vocal” about it, then you should seriously get back to basics as there is a lot to unlearn.

Encourage customer participation through Youtube. Gone are the days when you could actually depend solely on “one sided” TV ads to promote your brands. Ask customers to upload their own videos on Youtube, featuring them using you service or product, their feedback etc.
