It is safe to say that everyone has heard, used or come across the social networks, Facebook, Twitter, or LinkedIn. Even if you use social media sites, many questions arise including:

  •  How to use them effectively?
  • Is there a wrong way to use the sites?
  • Why are people using them?

What is social media?

  • It is not traditional marketing
  • It is not advertising

Social media uses technology, social interaction and the sharing of words, images, video and audio. Social media networks are a place for conversation to take place online. Social media is consumer-driven, engaging, inclusive, and transparent. Social media development can become over whelming, which is why forming a strategy is important. The first step when creating a social media strategy is to listen to your self, and others.

Listen to your self

  • What channels do you use?
  • Who is your intended target market?
  • What overall message do you want your brand to communicate?
  • What’s missing?
  • What needs to change?
  • Who are you targeting now that is not interested?
  • What is missing in your online marketing?

By asking your self-questions, and sitting down with an experienced Internet marketing firm you will be able to optimize your business, and see the results you want.

Listen to others

  • Key public figures
  • Mentions of your business
  • Newsgroups
  • Blog comments
  • Other businesses like yours
  • Expert social media networking companies
  • Consumers

By listening to others, you will be able to discover:

  • How others perceive your business or brand
  • Who your target market should be
  • What your views want to hear from you
