Without a doubt, social media is a great tool that businesses can use to connect with their customers as long as it is used correctly and efficiently. Many businesses who have joined the social media bandwagon have tried and failed because of a lack of understanding on how it should really be done.
Many fail because of the misconception that it simply entails posting random things on social media. Some make the mistake of thinking that it’s all about gaining the most number of followers, the most number of “likes” or “clicks”. However, it is not.
Ajaz Ahmed of Akqa says that “Counting clicks isn’t what counts.” The number of followers, likes or clicks don’t count if they don’t translate to new and loyal customers and to increased sales and profits. What is the worth of your followers, likes and clicks if they do not add anything valuable to your business?
Some also think that it’s all about being in all the social media platforms. However, it is not about gaining presence everywhere. It’s about making your presence felt where it matters the most. Digital analyst and award-winning author Brian Solis once said that “Social media is about sociology and psychology more than technology.” While social media was born because of technology, what makes it work is a business’ ability to utilize it in order to understand and engage with their customers.
To make social media work for you, make sure to define your goals and develop an effective strategy that will help achieve them. Take note that choosing a platform is crucial and that the best one is where your audience is at. Then, learn how to make the best use of it so that you can make the most out of your efforts.
Besides, more than just a tool to advertise your products and services, social media is all about creating a community. As Susan Cooper of Buzz Edition goes, “Engage, Enlighten, Encourage and especially…just be yourself! Social media is a community effort, everyone is an asset.”
Social media isn’t merely about having an account on the different networks available. It requires a strategic formulation of content together with appropriately using the tools included in it such as sharing, retweeting, and using of hashtags to have proper customer engagement. If you’re not online savvy enough, we can guide you with everything you need to know in the digital field, from research, analytics to the development of techniques through our knowledge and offered services.
