  • Last week I said that you need to do research before diving into Social Media.This is how you do research on Twitter prior to signing up.Research the following:Your companyYour industryCompetitorsLocal AreaFriends & CoworkersThis tells you:Is someone using your company name alreadyWho in your industry is using TwitterIf no one is then that means it is a waste or you are ahead of the gameWhat your competitors are doingWho in your area is using Twitter and what is important to them
  • One of the biggest mistakes people make is following people without first having everything set up.Be strategic in setting up your profile, from user name to key words and a custom background.For a custom background you can google it and create your own or pay someone.
  • Relevant Accounts are:FriendsCoworkersExperts in your industryOther people in your fieldClientsPeople you meetFollowers of Followers
  • Tips, Links, Stories, Blogs and Deals will capture the attention of your followers. Have a mixture.No one wants to follow someone who just posts about their deals or seem robotic.BE RESPONSIVE!!!
  • Facebook Fan Pages are best for business, but you can still connect on a personal level. People buy from the people they know, this is why networking on and offline is so important.Using Pages Correctly:Reach out to friends and familyBuild a fan base by offering an incentive to get them to become a fanOffer an incentive to get them to your websiteUse your fan page for customer feedbackAllow feedback and testimonialsUpload pictures of events and productCreate events for sales, product launches and local events

  • Step 4: Tweet!
    People like tips, links to interesting stories and blog posts (they don’t have to be about your company), exclusive deals and a good sense of humor.
    People like the human touch and will appreciate posts with your thoughts and experiences more than you think
    They also like it when you say hi, respond to their questions, comments, praise, complaints and jokes

  • Tweet but how often?
    3 Guidelines for how often you should Tweet:
    What are your hours of operation? If you work 9am-5pm then Tweet within those hours
    If you do not have a set schedule then I suggest you:
    Pick a start time
    Your end time will be 12 hours later

    What is your role in the company?
    If you are the CEO you will Tweet different times than a CMO
    What is your message?
    Are you selling you a product?
    Are you establishing yourself as an expert?

    Create content worth sharing
    • Sharing behind-the-scenes updates and content gives fans a feeling of exclusivity by being connected to their favorites on Facebook.

    Ask fans a question in your status update, instead of only posting statements about your activities .
