A business owner who embraces social media, does so in the belief that their involvement will deliver a substantial return from the time and energy spent promoting their business and its products or services, on each chosen social media platform.

What businesses don't understand about social media but need to

What businesses don't understand about social media but need to | The Social Network Times | Scoop.it
Social media appeared en masse about 3500 days ago. In the blink of an eye, 1 in 4 people on the planet have embraced some form of social media. What I think is interesting is businesses’ initial reaction to social media has remained largely unchanged: That social media presents a risk, a threat and therefore it needs to be managed by putting in place strict controls and policies across the organisation.

The most successful Twitter users all recognize the power of engagement. People don’t want to feel as if they are talking to a brand. Take the time to respond to your notifications on Twitter. Something as simple as “thank you” can go a long way with your followers.

 

If you appreciate your audience, they will reciprocate with their attention. You may not be able to measure the tangible ROI on every tweet that you respond to, but it will have a profound impact on your lead generation and bottom line.
