The social networks have revolutionised the media landscape in less than a decade. It’s where news outlets, corporations, charities, government bodies and the general public assemble to share news, opinions and personal updates in a forum that is unprecedented in human history. Let’s start using it.
Businesses who embrace social media are rewarded with incredibly deep outreach. Managed properly, social media acts as a barometer of opinion – good and bad – about your brand. If you use feedback intelligently, it can help you to amplify your reputation. Complaints dealt with swiftly can be defused rather than being allowed to propagate. Responding positively to complimentary comments spreads goodwill.
Social Media is a Two-way Thing
As the name suggests, social media is about communicating – not broadcasting. The easiest social media mistake to make is setting up an account and filling it with a stream of adverts. If you want followers to stay, you need to interact. And for that to be successful, you must devote resources to it. Another common mistake is for businesses to log into social Twitter to fire off ten posts then disappear for a week. Nothing says you’re a broadcaster as much as this habit – and it’s ineffective. Without devoting time, attention and resources to social media, you’ll be joining the me too brigade and you’ll get nothing out of it.
