The Social Media Business Trend

The modern online world is easily accessible and is out there to be seen by all. From a business point of view, social media is a fantastic tool to utilise for so many reasons.

Social Media Management for your business

Unless you have been living under a rock for the last decade or more, you will know the immense popularity in Social Media among those who seemingly have a mobile phone surgically attached to their hand, scrolling through Twitter and Facebook timelines, uploading filtered images to Instagram or connecting with the next Sir Richard Branson on Linkedin, the question is where does the social media business trend fit within your company ethos?

It’s now easier to effectively promote your product/service to a customer interested, with contact never too far away. However, believe it or not, companies are still stuck in the dark ages with no online light to shed over their business.

You may think that your business doesn’t need it because ‘it’s not the right industry’ or ‘business is OK at the moment’, we would argue that the future online says otherwise.

You don’t need us to tell you to be prepared for the future when it comes to how you run your business, but it is important that organisations are up to date and have that all important online presence, notably through social media channels.

In essence, many businesses are simply not using Social Media effectively; and some aren’t using online platforms at all. Whether that be down to not having the time to constantly update their profiles with engaging content or simply can’t be bothered or see the point, effective management of social media is what makes a successful online base for your company to thrive in.

Social Media has the power to take your business to the next level. You have the opportunity to build a community, a brand and generate awareness for your product and/or service.

Your customers are the heart of your business so it is now more beneficial than ever to give them platforms to speak, whether that be through promoting, complaining or praising your company, customers like to know that a company is active on Social Media. Big or small, industry leading or not. After all, if a business isn’t active on social media, customers are often put off from exploring further as they believe the business is no longer trading or isn’t ‘up to date’ – social media is more important than you know!

Nevertheless, Social Media isn’t just about communication, Social Media is also about behaviour. A business online needs to show customers what they’re doing, not just tell them – actions speak louder than words.

For instance, if your business provides online delivery and a customer’s order goes missing, the social media dialogue about the incident should show what the company has done to resolve the problem. Thus, making the customer feel like a priority. They may still be angry, but it gives the individual question and anyone else witnessing the conversation more clarity over your company as a whole.

Furthermore, each social media platform caters to a different type of audience, it’s up to a company to be flexible in this day and age. Take the difference between Instagram and Linkedin for example, both platforms are worth utilizing but they each have their own benefits.

Instagram is very much image based, showcasing images of products, events and stories behind the brand. This approach ensures a business comes across personable and fun, attracting followers worldwide.

Linkedin is much more business orientated, it is effectively an online professional networking avenue with the aim of connecting and potentially working with a plethora of other business owners, managing directors, CEOs etc, fulfilling their respective service for other individual needs.

In addition, because online platforms are so diverse and different, it can be tricky to stay regular. Especially, when other areas of your business are more pressing.
