Are you approaching it the right way?
Everyone uses social media differently, and the approach you use should be based on your goals.
In this article I’ll share three ways to use social media to get the results you want for your business.
#1: Sell Products or Services
The instant nature of social media is ideal for sales. It’s no wonder social networks have become full-blown marketing channels. Those using a sales approach make no bones about the fact that they want you to buy their product or service.
When you’re selling, your updates likely include discounts and coupons, limited-time deals, new releases and promotions.
Do you customize your interactions with them?
Your brand and online reputation depend on how you provide social media customer service.
In this article you will find four ways social media conversations create an extraordinary customer experience that inspires loyalty and word-of-mouth recommendations.
#1: Create Unforgettable Experiences
One of the great benefits of providing customer support on social media is being able to connect with consumers in real time. You see a need and you fill it. You hear a problem and you solve it.
Handling customer issues on a public stage can benefit both you and the customer you’re working with—especially if you go above and beyond a generic “Please call us so we can resolve the issue.”
Are you looking for new ways to say thank you on social media?
Give and take is part of any successful relationship–online or off, business or personal.
In this article I’ll show you eight ways companies are using social media campaigns to thank their customers and foster better customer relationships.
#1: Pay It Forward
Hotel chain DoubleTree is known for their cookie welcome at check-in–it’s their way of “bringing the human touch back to travel.”
On National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day, they not only offered cookies to anyone who visited one of their hotels, they also used their social channels to invite others to spread the love by suggesting people who could use a cookie pick-me-up.
People could pay it forward by answering the question, “Who else deserves some Cookie Care?” on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram and including the #CookieCare hashtag.
