Rachael Johnston's curator insight, December 8, 2014 12:22 PM

Social media is becoming more and more popular and the digital culture is taking over. There is an increasing expectation of accessibility by consumers. Consumers now expect that all businesses are present on social media of some sorts. So if your business is not, you are far behind!

A few rules this article gives for marketing in the digital culture are:

1. The is no mass. This means, don't try to appeal to everybody. Your target can't just be everybody on Facebook. Because almost everybody is active on some sort of social media platform, you cannot just target everybody or your campaign will be completely ineffective. Determine who your target is and how you can directly get their attention on the platform. Ex: what hashtags should you use

2. Listening is more valuable than talking. Listen to what your consumers are saying about what they want and what they think. Don't always just push out content, truly try to engage in others' content as well to foster relationships.

3.When you see a parade, get in front of it. This simply means, if you see something that is trending or grabbing a lot of attention, use it your businesses advantage. Get involved in the action!

4. Earn and give! Create value for your viewers ad followers. Give back to them by providing interesting and useful content.

5. Invest long-term. Social media is not a one time thing. You need to be consistent and constantly active. You need to respond in a timely manner and post up-to-day and relevant content. Additionally, you can measure the success of campaigns and profiles better over a longer period of time. If you don't see results right away, don't just give up. Give it time to foster relationships and build a community.

more...
Rachael Johnston's curator insight, December 8, 2014 12:29 PM

Tips:

- Track all complaints. This is important because you want to be on the lookout for complaints at all times. Because things can go viral so quickly on the internet, make sure you keep up with this and monitor posts about you frequently.

- Respond quickly in public. Make a pubic apology and smooth things over. This is important because you want to make sure that you customers know that their feelings and opinions matter

- Stay positive publicly. This is extremely important! Always be polite and positive in your posts and comments. Nobody likes somebody negative. You need to make sure you are always respectful to other users or you can quickly create a bad reputation

- Deal with issues privately. If the public apology is not enough, deal with further issues in private, otherwise the crisis can blowup.
