Building meaningful relationships online
Social Media is not about simply collecting connections and followers so you have a large data base. It’s about enhancing customer services, creating valuable relationships that are relevant to your business and brand. Its about the dynamics of communication between people not faceless corporate institutions.
As social media continues to explode conversations with, and about, your business are taking place right now around the internet. You can decide to either engage with these conversations or ignore them.
Increasing your market share
Employed correctly Social Media enables you to understand what your market is looking for and where they are looking and what they are saying. It can help you increase market share and provide a forum for market research. When your clients, customers or prospects are engaged talking about your brand, business, products, services or industry, you need to be there listening.
If you are not part of the conversation you very quickly get out of touch with your market. Engagement through Social Media provides your business or organisation with insights and intelligence about your market which enables you to respond accordingly, be that to identify a new product/sales or market opportunity. Equally it enables you to become aware of problems or needs, and respond to them quickly and effectively.
