Social Media Driving Progress

Will your business survive today and what to do about it.

Business models are changing and as a business you have to adapt to what is trending as well as alight yourself with the needs and interests of your target audience. Thus, unwillingly, but it would be better for you if you volunteered to, to jump on the social bandwagon and do whatever it takes to drive your business forward.

With the advancement of social media, a business today must either have or be willing to cultivate social media following, that is to find out where the potential clients/customers go to for information, where they like to hang out online, what they read and listen to, which sources they use, and who they take advise from.

Many businesses make the mistake of trying to shove the product down the throat of potential clients since clients don’t have much choice. Case and point, many hotels. They don’t really case about customer service or customers and are hasty to charge your card. After that you are on your own. They don’t listen to you and your opinion you can keep to yourself. However, they do insist that you are getting great service.

Well that is changing.

If you want to succeed, drive your numbers up, drum up sustainable business, which is super important, you have to change your attitude and be willing to change yourself.

Start listening to your clients, help them, and go above and beyond to make sure they get fantastic service and a great overall experience. If you win a client, not only will they buy again but they will refer you to other potential clients.

But let’s get back to social media and what it can do for you and your business.

Couple of things first. You must have social medial profiles on:

1. Facebook

2. Twitter

3. Instagram

4. Pinterest

5. YouTube

6. Google +

7. Tumblr

Those are an absolute must. If you want to go a bit further have

8. Yelp page

9. LinkedIn Page

10. Profile on Snapchat

11. Blog site

12. Vimeo Page

And give your audience an easy way to get in touch with you via

a. Email

b. Whatsapp #

c. Skype

d. Messenger

So today’s lesson is, get your butt onto the social media bandwagon, because while you may have been doing things the old fashioned way, younger generation has moved on and they decide what works for them. Not you.

We, @20XXHITS, are doing just that.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
