  • Even though we use online tools to marketing our business now, people still do business with people they like, know and trust. Social Media allows us to create one-on-one relationships with more people like never before. Social Media also allows customers to become brand advocates, share our information and recommend our products and services to othersContent we use online, like blog posts, videos, photos and conversations, helps a person who is thinking about buying a product, actually buy it. It helps them feel good about a product or service, and it helps them better use your services to their fullest potential. 3. We also have to keep in mind that Social Media has given everyone a voice – and they are more than likely talking about you and your brand online. Customer service and customer care is #1 on the social web. One thing that is important to note:A huge number of fans and followers isn't nearly as important as the number of fans and followers that want your information.
  • The problem is, often when you are getting started on social networks, it’s hard to come up with ideas on what to share and talk to your customers about.You can build relationships and become helpful on social media by using Content!Because Helpful is the new Viral!! We can use content marketing and social media to be an expert who is out helping others.
  • Content Marketing is anything you create to share and tell your story. When we do social media and online marketing – EVERYTHING revolves around content. The sharing and networking is easy once you have the content to share!Blog Post Magazine or Newsletter ArticleVideoTalking at an EventEmailTweets or Facebook Status UpdateInfographicsPosters, Brochures and all Printed MaterialContent is good for Online Marketing but also Search Engines and People too! The more consistent content you produce, the more your posts will show up in the Facebook newsfeed, the more your sites will be found in search and the more people will come back to learn more about your brand.So – Content might be a article on your website, which you share on social networks with a link back to your website. It might be a question you ask on Facebook. It might be a video you post to YouTube and then tweet to your followers, it might be a photo of your products or services, it might be the slideshow of a presentation you gave in person.
