Social Media is very important for any business unit now-a-days, and whether you are a solo-entrepreneur, a small business man or running a big corporation, social media is the only way to stay. Up to 93% of customers in market use social media in some capacity to gain exposure for their business units and out of this, 72% customers are agreed that social media marketing improved their traffic.
I enjoyed your article, but have a question. My company is a disaster restoration firm. Our site and blog is very neww but it is updated weekly if not daily. We were advised not to allow comments due to spam traffic. Since our services are not always something that people are concerned with on a daily basis until they have a problem, what would you suggest for good promotion and what are your thoughts on allowing comments in our scenario?
By all means, allow comments so you can interact with customers! Just be sure to MODERATE them!
Totally agree with most of this. The one area I’d leave some wiggle room is Twitter. I think that casual back-and-forth with followers and potential followers can be useful in letting them get to know the people behind the company.
Thanks for the thoughts!
Yes, it is very interesting how important social media has become to the business world. In 5 or 10 years, I believe it will be almost unheard of – a business without facebook, or twitter or blogs.
Robert, thanks for the post and tips. I think you offer another great example of “social media marketing” with your clever call-to-action of “tell the world you just read this” and then giving people the opportunity to do just that.
I also like this Spotify playlist http://www.thinkbigonline.com.au/20-must-have-play-list-for-spotify/ which encourages businesses to engage with customers on a humorous level for their social networking. Cheers!
“Use the like button!” RT@Element850info Another great method of marketing promotion and free web publicity. Twitter plug in feature adds another layer of credibility, and builds quality trust factors by integrating knowledgeable sources with expertise knowledge.
Social Media pays an important role in generating traffic and it is true that without its help, we will suffer from maintaining website traffic and ranking. It might seem hard tho but we will eventually learn how to use social media accounts professional and not personally. Thanks.
