Why engage in social media?
Social media has been the buzzword of the last few years. However, is it right for your business?
Engaging in social media can help with:
- Building your brand online – be in the right place at the right time
- Insight and research – what are your customers (and your competitors) saying?
- SEO – building relationships and valuable links
- Managing a crisis – open communication in real time
- Increase customer loyalty – communicate and reward valued customers
Social media gives you a chance to openly communicate with your customers, but it is a conversation, not a broadcast channel – listening and responding is key. Although social media is often considered as “free”, it can be very time-consuming to get it right, and can seriously damage your brand reputation if you get it wrong.
At Lexica Marketing we can help you build a full social media strategy, from monitoring and listening to existing online conversations to building relationships with bloggers and setting up and maintaining the relevant social media channels for your company.
