Why use social media?
Social media is the fastest way of reaching your customer base, social networking is such that the number of worldwide users is expected to reach some 2.95 billion by 2020, and if you use it correctly you could find it promoting your business long after your blog of post has gone live.
The Rule of seven
From its roots in early marketing the rule of seven has since translated to the modern age of marketing through social media. According to the Rule, only one in seven of your posts will promote your business. That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be promoting your business with the other posts but you need to make sure you pair them with useful content that draws the attention of the reader.
Social media affords businesses the opportunity to communicate with your customer more than 7 times every day! And it’s easily done by sharing useful content and interacting with customers and prospects. You can then convert some fans into customers.
How many times has an advert stuck in your head because it’s clever or funny, bear that in mind when you are preparing to post a blog or news item to your social media account.
Using social media to promote your business like Facebook and Twitter or Linkedin is one of the best ways to reach your customers after all most of them will have at least one of the popular social media sites
