It’s important to focus on the social media sites that make sense for your business. People aren’t on social media to hear your sales pitch, and social media for your business is about listening and having a two-way conversation.
Once you’re deep in the nitty gritty, social media can turn into hard work. But you can stop that. Putting together a plan for your social media will help you keep things easily updated, managed and doesn’t need to take up much of your time at all.
Which social media management tools might help you, and how? How can you use social media to target certain groups that are most likely to be interested in your business? Or to reach more people than you could otherwise?
And as always, how can analytics help you to understand how and where you efforts are paying off?
