Social media is the new word-of-mouth because it has become the one place where your audience and clients spend time every day.

Additionally, social media:

  • Requires very little effort because your audience advertises for you - every time someone shares your post, you are being introduced to a new audience;
  • It is cost-effective - as we already mentioned, because your audience does a lot of the work in increasing your social reach, it is an excellent cost-effective method for branding and marketing;
  • You can respond to your audience instantly and, therefore, demonstrate that you (or the brand) cares and acknowledges customers' concerns;
  • Directs traffic to your website - by structuring your posts well and providing valuable content you can generate more engagement and clicks.

Most small-business owners realize that social media is a major component of a comprehensive marketing strategy, but they don’t know where to begin.

Here are the basics on how to get it done!

  1. Know your audience - knowing who are the people you are trying to reach (your buyer personas) will help you with the next steps;
  2. Check out your competition - see how they use social media, what topics they discuss and write about to get ideas;
  3. Identify the topics that create value - if you are unsure of what topics your potential clients would like to hear and talk about, try to do some additional research;
  4. Chose the right social media - going back to step #1, you have to know who your potential clients are and where they hang out. There is no point to maintain a LinkedIn account if your customers do not use that social network;
  5. Define frequency and timing - try to find the right balance between how many social media Produce customer-centered contentnetworks you choose to have and how often you post. It is better to have fewer, but well maintained networks, than many poorly kept ones;
  6. Engage your audience - social media audiences spot and do not appreciate sales pitch. They like to be engaged and entertained. Therefore, pick your topics carefully!
  7. Track progress and analyze results - be serious about analytics because it's what will help you figure out whether your time and money spent on social media are paying off. Platforms, such as Twitter to Facebook offer built-in analytics. There are other professional social media tools such as Hootsuite, which also provide detailed reports. Analytics reports allow marketers and business owners to see which posts and updates are making the biggest impact and how many people have been reached.
