Social Media has been the talk of the town for quite some time now and if leveraged well, can boost your business to an unexpected level. But this social media success is based on a few factors – MARKETABILITY, CONNECTIVITY, AND ENGAGEMENT.
Marketability is the ability to sell your products or services effectively. In this digital era where else could you find a better platform for marketing your product other than social media? Social media has the highest people engagement in today’s time and leveraging this is very important. However, you must present yourself well while marketing yourself on social media. As it is said, the first impression is the last impression; your profile should be such that it leaves a good impression in the minds of the people. Use this platform well and highlight your expertise and strengths. There should be a call-to-action explaining what value addition you bring to your audience.
Social media is a place where people connect, and here you can connect with your audience too. Here you can stay connected with your existing customers and try connecting with new audiences and future prospects as well. It is believed that the bigger the network the better it is for your business. This can be good to an extent as long as it does not create a negative impression about your product or service. For instance, while connecting to someone on LinkedIn, try sending a note with your invitation mentioning your details rather than sending canned messages.
The other most important point is engagement. You need to learn how to engage your audience on social media as well. It could be anything, maybe some questionnaire or a blog that would engage the audience. The more you engage your customer, the more there will be business opportunities for you.
