When you are trying to increase your business, there are many different methods that you can employ. These days, one of the biggest things that people are using for their business is social media. Regardless of which form or website you are using, there are the same things that you want to make sure you are doing.
These websites are named Social Media for a reason. You have to engage and talk to people, engage them, and treat them as a human, not just a customer. If all you ever do is talk up your product, people quickly ignore you and not take notice of anything you say. But if you comment about things that they are posting, they will remember you, comment on what you say, and when they need whatever you are selling, they will remember you sell it and contact you to help them out.
Provide Free Information
As a method of providing and engaging people, you can provide tips and tricks that are related to your product. If you are a designer, you may want to post tips about decorating, such as tips on making a small space look larger, colors that work together, or other little tidbits that are helpful. They do not have to be large tips, as you do not want to lose business, but little things that people may not know.
Ask for Feedback
Start a discussion on your social media. This could be based on something a customer asks you, something you know that many people have questions about, or just something you feel like discussing. To continue with the designer example, maybe someone has asked you if you can put red and orange together, you could post something saying, Jane has asked about red and orange together, this is how I feel as a decorator about the combination, how would you feel if a designer came into your home and suggested this combination? You will be amazed at what types of answers and discussion may be sparked by doing this.
Find people who are interested in your product
Many of the social sites out there give you ways to search through the people that are on their sites and look for certain words. A designer may want to search for those who use the words “color” and “renovating”. Once they find these people, they may want to check their profile to get an idea of why they are using these words, they could be other designers promoting themselves; they could be someone who has just finished their work, or someone who is getting ready to do some work in their home.
One of the most important tips to remember is to be you. People can tell a fake and someone who is only working to promote themselves. Talk how you normally talk, but you may have to sensor some things such as language or negative talk. It is okay to be negative when you are discussion the weather and the fact it has rained for a week, but not okay when you are discussing a supplier and saying how horrible their customer service is. If your comment is not something that you could say to your parents, then it does not belong on your Internet profile.
When using social media, the biggest thing to remember it to build relationships with others that you encounter. Find common ground to discuss, and things will go from there.
