Social media and digital communications have made the process of spreading the word easier, quicker and less expensive than it once was, but deciding which platform is best for your business can often be a little confusing. With everything from Facebook
and the relatively old-school website, there’s a lot to consider about which would be the best place to spend your communication dollars and your energies.
If you’re unsure of what digital platform would suit your business best, seek out someone who has expertise in this area. Although it may be less expensive than traditional advertising, if you make the wrong choice about your social media marketing it can be a costly mistake.
Once you’ve decided on how you are going to stay in touch with your clients and customers, you have to decide on what you’re going to tell them. Put together a plan where you can be more strategic about getting your news out. If you do run a blog or regular newsletter, put together a plan of relevant topics so you can be organised in gathering the information specific to your subjects as you progress through the year. Try to integrate your blog or newsletter topics with your social media post content so that your communication is not only relevant but consistent. This way you will always be touching your customer base on some level while keeping your business or service top of mind.
Finally, create a physical plan of your timetable and schedules and put it somewhere you can see it on a daily basis to remind you of what you’ve got planned and to keep you accountable to those plans.
