There are some places you can get away with doing the bare minimum, but social media is not one of those places when it comes to running your business! Many businesses today have come to realize that it is a necessity to have a social media following to attract new business. If you already have social media accounts on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram set up for your business, you have taken the first step. However, simply having an existing page or profile does not do much in the way of marketing or advertising. This simply means that potential customers will be able to find you on social media when they search for you or your services. What they see when they visit your pages will play a huge role in determining whether or not these potential customers see you as relevant, credible, and trustworthy. They will be able to see if you engage with your social media visitors, the things you post (is your content relevant to what you are marketing, or is it random information that gives no clues as to what your company does?), and the amount of information available to them as a potential customer.
It is important to utilize your social media pages by being active, engaged, and consistent. Through your activity on your business’s social media accounts, potential customers are able to see that you are a functioning business and not one that no longer exists — many younger internet users tend to believe that if you are not on social media, you do not exist! A page that exists but does not have active postings can indicate or imply that you are not a company that is looking for new business. Potential customers are also looking to see you engage with customers. Are your posts purely business-related, or are you posting things that may bring joy or a laugh to those visiting your pages as well? Are you replying to questions that are asked? You can also utilize your social media pages by being consistent in your posting. If you post something one week and then don’t post again for several weeks, your presence will not be as strong, and you can get moved out of the social media algorithm.
