More and more people are using social media as the place to hang out online or meet new and interesting like minded individuals. So what can social media do for a business wanting to stand out from the crowd? A lot.
It opens a dialogue with customers for real-time feedback and it is good for your company so that you can update them with the latest products , services and promos you are offering. Without further ado, here are the three social networks you should pay attention to:
It is concededly one of the major players in social media not only because of the number of users it has but also the available features a business can take advantage of by using Facebook Pages. Facebook Pages is like a hub for your business, where users of Facebook can “like” a certain page about anything like a celebrity, organization or a product. What is great about this feature is you can then advertise on Facebook and directly interact with your customer/client base.
This microblogging service is one you should not ignore. It is especially outstanding in attracting more customers your way, in starting a two-way conversations with your customers and in updating them all contained in a 140 character tweet. Short but sweet.
It is a fairly new social networking site but do not let that discourage you from trying it. Google has many services for businesses and by integrating them with one profile makes it easier for customers to find you, particularly since Google is the number one ranked search engine.
Hope this helps you in sorting the wheat from the chaff but you can choose to go other social networking sites if your target customers are using those sites. After all, what is the use of having a profile in a social networking site if your customers don’t go there?
