Business carries a lot of its own unique challenges, and starting one is almost always the period of greatest stress. Internal organization, finance assessment, human resources concerns: these factors can combine to devour a CEO’s or COO’s time with internal considerations. This is something you can’t afford to let happen. Outreach and self-promotion in the so-called blogosphere is essential to securing your internet business’s future as a profitable, secure enterprise.
Social networking sites like Twitter provide unparalleled access to thousands of like-minded individuals. A single employee tasked with posting comments and promotions, following feeds similar to your own, and networking with other businesses and individuals could make all the difference to your company’s success. Don’t let the nitty-gritty details of office management get in the way of a truly immense publicity opportunity for your brand.
Exposure is the key to a brand’s success, and Twitter is an excellent avenue to securing that exposure. When you engage with social media you get a feel for your target audience, for its moods and preferences, and more than that you can actively participate in shaping that same community. According to a poll conducted by The Next Web, over ninety percent of Twitter posts and comments go uncommented upon, but by taking a dynamic approach to your engagement with the Twitter community you can establish yourself as part of the exceptional minority.
A recent Pew Research poll found that of Americans surveyed, 60 percent conduct research online before making a purchase whether in analog space or in an online store. With a strong presence in social media like Twitter and Facebook will become more visible not just in search-engine results but as a brand promoted fan-to-fan via word of mouth. The value of this kind of organic marketing is best expressed simply: it’s free, and it spreads virally with no outward influence.
Don’t underestimate the importance of mixed media in establishing your brand identity. With a quality Youtube channel (easily accessible from both your Twitter feed and your Facebook page), you can engage your viewers with targeted advertisements, how-tos, mission statements and various other media. As a passive medium video is a proven marketing tool
Your involvement in your brand’s marketing is important, but as head of the company it is important that you let your marketing team do their job and focus your own attention on the company’s infrastructure. Competent, attentive administration is vital to the success of any business, and if your priorities are split your business will suffer.
If you’re intimidated by the idea of mounting a social media campaign, or if you need help with the technical aspects of the task, you might consider contacting freelancers through websites like Elance. Startups are attractive to those just getting into the game, and you’ll have your pick of the entry-level crowd. Select for quality, stay on message, and social media branding will reward your perseverance.
