Social media is the latest tectonic plate to move and change the media landscape. Powered by these changes, news has become immediate and available on new platforms such as smart devices. It has also changed the way audiences are created, targeted, respond and interact. With the exponential growth in digital media and almost 3 billion people using the internet, businesses are becoming dependant on technology to grow their brand awareness and to reach audiences not just in their local area, but across the globe.

Having an active presence on major social networks is vital for businesses trying to widen and target new audiences in new ways. However, if you do not have the knowledge and tools, social media can become quite overwhelming and that is where we can help you.  Here are some golden rules on how to use social media correctly.

Communicate

We cannot stress enough how important it is to communicate regularly, honestly and genuinely with all content whether it is a post or response on social media. The more your audience hears from you, the more trust and loyalty you will develop over time. Giving your audience a voice and allowing them to share their opinions will encourage them to communicate with you more. Creating these relationships with your audience on social media will generate leads and also better customer satisfaction.

How much content you want us to post on your social media platforms will depend on the size of your company and how much you want to promote your business.

Share

Sharing relevant posts that your target audience will be interested in or actual audience content will show that you care. After all, sharing is caring. It can also be a great way to widen your audience and show that your business is the thought leader in your market. Retweeting, sharing and liking other posts will also build your brand awareness.
