Social media is increasingly becoming the most important aspect of marketing a business online. The biggest brands in the world recognize the importance of connecting with their audience through social media. In fact, most brands are now spending more money on social media networking, than they do on print advertising. However, small businesses struggle with this aspect of marketing. To encourage you to see the importance of social media, we have listed three ways that it can help you connect with your customers.
Many small businesses overlook the importance of brand building and in the process lose out on sales. In an oversaturated market it is impossible for customers to pick out small business brands unless they use the proper tools. Brand building involves social media networking and even business-to-business collaboration.
Name recognition is another way to build your business. Customers are generally very wary of businesses that they are unfamiliar with and are much less likely to purchase any item or service from a name they don’t recognize. Social media will increase name recognition if you use advertising to establish a presence.
Increased customer service is another side effect of social media networking. Customers can simply take to Twitter, if they have a question about a product or have a concern they want to share with a brand. Business-to-business customer service is also made much easier by social media. Transform the way you connect with your customers by becoming actively involved in social media. If you do, you will likely see an increase in sales and a better response from your customers. If you are a small business that works primarily as a business to business service, then you will also find it beneficial to utilize and implement all of the tools available.
