Let me take three guesses at who you have running your online presence.
1) A brand new college grad who just loves using Facebook…
2) You’re a do-it-yourselfer because…well you’re not too bad at using Facebook either…
3) No one is running it because you don’t even have a Facebook.. ouch
In any case, you need, and I don’t use this term lightly, you need someone who fully understands Social Media and it’s uses and the myriad marketing applications entrenched in managing your Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin, WordPress, Youtube, Google+, Yelp, Diggit, Reddit and all other online social networking. Why? Because your college grad, you (or no one), are probably not utilizing half the tools available.
Used to their fullest functionality, Social Media platforms create a thriving network of potential clients and customers that you can easily keep in touch with on a daily basis. That is, if you have the time.
Most small business owners or organizational leaders have great intentions of keeping their finger on the pulse of Social Media. Most understand the positive impact it has on their bottom line, though the reality is that many simply do not have the time to keep up with it. So, they have a Facebook page, but it hasn’t been touched in 3 months, or they have a Linkedin account, but their 17 contacts remain their only contacts with no glimmer of hope for expansion.
Social Media needs to be nurtured, ideally every day. The good news is that it’s not difficult, but learning to manage it is like getting into the habit of hitting the gym 3-5 times a week, it’s something that has to be worked into your schedule and prioritized.
So what if there just simply, not enough time?
That’s where companies like Web250 come in. We not only manage your online presence, we can teach you how to as well. If it takes you 6 months get into that habit, we hold the reigns until you are ready, so you don’t lose precious business opportunities in the meantime.
Whether you have decided to take this task on yourself or you hire a company like ours to manage it for you, one thing is certain; you shouldn’t miss out on the many opportunities Social Media holds for your business and your public image.
