While you may be spinning your wheels and spending a significant amount of time on various social media sites, there are many factors to take into consideration in order to yield positive results that are genuinely worth the effort.

A strategic social media marketing plan must be crafted to ensure that these tools are truly being utilized to each full potential.

It’s no secret there are a large assortment of social media sites in existence, with what seems to be a new one popping up every day or so. Careful consideration must be taken in advance to determine which sites are the best to portray and share your overall business goals and core demographic.

While it is of value to increase your online presence through the use of multiple social media platforms, the sites you choose should be where your customers are visiting, and has to make sense based on your industry and overall branding.

Consistent branding across all social media platforms is also of high priority. Use the same colors, logos, and imagery as your primary website to build brand recognition with customers and help them to immediately realize that you are the same company regardless of if they are on your website, Twitter, or your Facebook page.

Some things to keep in mind when establishing a social media strategy for business is as follows:

  • Don’t try to use social media for lead generation purposes. It is important to embrace the real power of social media: its scalability and authenticity. Customers will know when you are not being genuine and will steer clear.
  • Never ignore anyone who comments or asks a question. Engagement is essential and will show customers your business is there to help and answer any questions or concerns that arise.
  • Publish frequently. Frequent content publishing shows customers and brand followers that you are industry leaders and always on top of hot trends and information. Disappearing for prolong periods of time will cause customers to forget about you, when frequent content publishing will keep your company at the top of the page.
  • Content quality. Gone are the days of spam content that is not readable or of value. Your content must be interesting and compelling to encourage views and customer engagement.
