Understand the importance of conversation and dialogue. What many companies fail to recognize, is that feedback, even negative, is giving them the opening to have a conversation. Take your customers’ feedback to another level by starting a conversation. The more you are willing to learn from your customers, the more likely they are to reward your efforts with continued loyalty and repeat sales.
Social media works best if you create links that all tie together. Readers should be able to “Like” you on FB, find your YouTube videos or follow your Twitter feed. On Twitter, include in your profile a URL that links to your Facebook page and blog. If you put up a link for all of your sites this will create more exposure.
You should put a ‘like’ box on Facebook on the top of your blog page. This lets people “like” you at Facebook. When you have this box on your blog, it makes it easy for your visitors to show their appreciation without being distracted from your page. This will give you greater exposure on Facebook which can lead to a greater amount of visitors to your site.
Your online storefront can become easier for your customers to use with effective social media tie-ins. Your main website is the most important, of course, but it is possible to set up a Facebook store that can be visited from any post on your account. Facebook users like to check out everything related to your profile, so a Facebook store could become a revenue builder for you. That way, you don’t even need to lure buyers to your site–they can remain on Facebook if they would rather remain there.
By utilizing SMM, you will never be facing total financial ruin. Your focus now becomes providing quality videos, pictures, etc. to a correctly established audience. With all of these places online you should not have a hard time finding followers and become a good business.
