A very exacting guide to build a powerful brand presence online is an optimized use of social media. Leveraging social media tools to their full proximity can help a small business gain momentum and pace in no time. This pace can be mapped in the traffic that visits one’s corporate website and the return on investment it guarantees. It does happen at times, and at various instances we see that many a small firm get really gung-ho initially, about their Twitter and Facebook presence, but when the business shows no real growth or performance, agonized & exasperated, these small businesses give up completely!
That we firmly believe is inappropriate, since instead of throwing in your towels and accepting defeat that is the time for any firm to expand its reach wider! One needs to spread further than merely posting a few tweets about what they’re upto! Social media is expansive. Its very many tools can be aptly used to pull off linear thought, vision and purpose of a brand. Quite a few of these tools, such as blogs, micro-blogs, RSS feed, video-uploading, and photo-sharing can all be used to empower one’s presence online. Use these basic cues to strategise it well:
Plan it right!
Hence, the first thing to be overlooked is that you should abstain from jumping headlong in the social media pool. Else you will be lost in the multitude of fishes. It is very important to strategise well. Leave least scope for serendipity to steep in! Please pen your thoughts, aspirations and goals. And when we say be clear, we mean it! Check if your goal is volumising sales or empowering brand presence. This will give you a clear idea about the next very important issue.
Who are you targeting?
Knowing one’s audience helps. This will help you set the tone for your audience on the social media page. This will boost conversations, and increase the number of topics that you could bring to your social media walls.
Another important caution, just do not be rude, commanding, vulgar or cursing with a customer, or even a competitor online. IT is a sure shot way to ruin your brand presence. It will not only kill your brand’s reputation online but it will also trigger wrong vibes in the customer’s mindsets.
