Eventually, you’ll focus more on your industry expertise. The point is, you need to start somewhere. It doesn’t matter what you call yourself—but if you can inspire others with your content, you’re one step closer to “leadership influencer.” Read “How to Become a Leadership Influencer” by Tom Popomaronis.
Social media plays an important role in marketing. Not only does it cost very little, but it’s a quick way to get valuable content to large audiences with a personal touch. Social media platforms are non-negotiable, but are you effectively utilizing them to meet your business’s goals?
In her article, “How to Turn Your Business Goals into a Strong Social Media Strategy,” writer Elissa Liu states that too many businesses fail to connect their goals with a complementary strategy—instead, they shoot from the hip and post or share what is convenient or what they think their targeted audience may like. There’s little follow-up and return on investment is unknown.
Instead, Liu suggests you create a strategy to meet a clearly defined goal. For example, if one of your business goals is to improve customer service, look at how you process complaints and questions. Some people are okay making a phone call, but others might prefer sending a comment through Facebook messenger. Liu points out that customers need several avenues to complain or question—and they expect timely responses. Do you know your response time on social media? Is it clearly defined within your company and is it tracked? It’s obvious reading this that social media response time affects customer service—but it’s amazing how many businesses do not utilize social media platforms with this understanding. Use Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, and LinkedIn to improve your customer service, if that is one of your business goals. Read Liu’s entire article for great tips on translating your business goals into social media goals!
