Social Media

60 Ways Social Media Can Grow Your Local BusinessThere are currently billions of worldwide registered users on the major social media sites. While it’s a good idea for businesses to have accounts on each social media platform for maximum exposure, not all social media sites are created the same; and what one can do you for you, another may not.

Consider the following tasks, and determine an actionable plan to put forth the effort. Chances are that you cannot personally put in the time it takes to manage your accounts and will need the help of a partner, or a professional social media manager to get the job done.

  • Setting up Accounts: Before you get started, you’ll need to take the time to properly set up your accounts.
  • Content Sharing: Consistent, yet engaging, content is by far one of the most important things that must be done to grow your business.
  • Answering Questions and Comments: You’ll need to check your social media accounts periodically throughout the day for questions and comments.

Key Factors to Consider
25-Step Social Media Check ListTo get started, consider the main advantages you want social media to provide for your business. For example, if your main goal is to increase sales and revenue, then your goal should be to improve your brand awareness.

This can be done by creating consistent, authentic content that gives people an in-depth look at what you can offer. This will also help to improve your online reputation. Companies that consistently update their content and check in with their followers are typically thought of as a reliable business, and therefore more customers may follow.

If you want to convert your social media followers into paying customers, you’ll not only want to provide valuable content, but consider offering incentives, such as free samples, service coupons, or anything else that would give people a reason to become paying customers.

It may seem that none of your efforts are producing results, and you may feel like giving up the entire notion of being successful on social media.

If you find yourself losing interest, consider tackling social media with new videos, photos, or anything that will excite you, and in turn give people something to talk about. Remember, you will get out of social media what you put into it, and as with any other type of marketing, it takes time, effort, and dedication.
