Social media has become part of our livelihood. Not even a day goes by without us picking our phones to check what is trending in cyber space or what our friends are up to.
That is, when it comes to consuming content created by others – but truth be told we are also contributors to this whole social phenomenon.
It is exciting to know within seconds of an event happening thousands of miles away, we get the information on our handheld device.
Some even say it is not only exciting but very addictive. However you look at it is has changed the way business is done.
In all the advantages that social media has to offer, we ask the question, how does it benefit the business person?
Does the business person just indulge in the use of social media without seeing any benefit accruing to his organization’s bottom line?
No there are ways to benefit from the social media management.
To take advantage of social media there are certain questions the manager should answer before setting out to manage a social media accounts:
What is the overall goal of the setting up an account for his organization? The assumption is that he will use it to stay connected to his current customers as well as us it to win over some potential customers. If this is the case then there is clarity and the manager knows who his/her target audience are.
The demographic of your audience. It is very important to understand your audience so that you can tailor your connect to benefit them. It they are teens you have to provide teen stuff for them. Equally if the target audience is business people then the content must suit their interest.
Get feedback. Communication here should be a two way affair. Ensure that your customers are talking back to you. This is the only way to can serve them better. They will tell you exactly what they need when you engage them is a polite and constructive manner.
Ask for the sale. When you have a product to sell. Make it easy for them to buy. Sometimes the business manager has to be bold to ask for the sale. If you have been talking about the uses of one of your products to your customer, there is nothing stopping you from asking them to buy it.
This must be done is a subtle and professional manner without being too aggressive. Aggressiveness can only repel the customer.
