Social Media

“Social Media: a dialogue not a monologue” by Antonella Ragona, Marketing Nest.

The clue is in the name “SOCIAL” so when people ask us, what is your Social Media secret? We say: “Have fun, be helpful, be friendly basically, be social”

We hear people saying they refuse to join the Social Media world because they prefer to speak to people. Now, is there written anywhere that you cannot meet and talk to those you met via Social media? Maybe if the name was “a medium for people who like to socialise, exchange ideas and expertise” people wouldn’t be so scared but that would be a bit of a mouth full.

Love it or hate it but Social Media today is what the web was in 1997. Some people love it, some people hate it, some people are just scared of it. If anything we all agree Social Media at least creates some sort of emotion.

One thing is for sure; when you meet a new contact 9 times out of 10 they may ask you, are you on: facebook, twitter, linkedIn?

So the real question is, do you want to be one of the few left out and stuck in the past or do you want to understand what makes Social media the tool of the millennium?

Social Media has reinvented the way we communicate, but it’s not just about our prospects, it has changed the way we communicate with:

Our Loved ones
Our Suppliers
Our Clients
Our Contacts
Our Business Associates
Our Fellow Networkers
..but also, it’s changing the way we do business, we use the internet and spend our spare time!

We receive calls every day from people asking us which is the best platform for them to be in?

The answer is simple: it depends on what you want, but like many Marketing services they work best when there is a well thought out strategy behind it.

So here are our FREE Social Media Tips:
  1. Have a clear idea what you want social media to do for you
  2. Social media will be useless if all you do on it is SELL SELL SELL.
  3. Ask for help, many people start using Social Media thinking they will be able to just wing it. Speak to the experts, ask them for advice, and read what they have to say about it.
  4. Give it time, Social Media is not an overnight solution
  5. Last but not least DO NOT base your Social Media success by the number of followers/likes/connection. Focus your Social media on building good and strong relationship with your audience.

So are you ready to soar to new heights in this Social Media journey?
