Social Media Networking

August 23, 2012

Personally, I prefer using Facebook for my business, LinkedIn and Twitter – in that order.  I have other accounts but do not use them the way I initially intended when I signed up.  social media logos

Also, I’m not a huge proponent of blasting the exact same post/info across all networks and think that it may be/become annoying on some level to those who follow you on more than 1 social media network (which I’ve said in the past).

Do you have a preferred social media network for your business?  If you use one and not others, why?  What are your thoughts/comments?

Here’s some helpful information regarding the upcoming changes to Facebook business pages.  It’s concise and easy to digest.

All pages will move to the new format on March 30, 2012.  I suggest previewing your page in the new format soon (by hitting the Preview button in the top right corner) and take the new features out for a test drive.  You may elect to move to the format early!

Plus, a great link directly to Facebook for more detail.      Facebook social media networking with your virtual assistant

online business branding marketingOn a regular basis,  I strongly recommend to clients (and potential clients) to get on the bus when it comes to business strategies and the importance of business branding.  Your online presence should reflect your business image, company message, and color scheme across the internet on ALL of your networks.  Web viewers are into instant gratification and make split second decisions on whether they are compelled to investigate your site (your products/services) or jump on over to the next (your competitor’s) website.   Their perception of you/your business might be jeopardized if you have different messages, logos, etc. on each of your networking affiliations.

It is critically important to project your brand on each marketing vehicle you use including your social media connections.  Are all of your networks portraying the same color scheme, logo, core business statements?  If not, make it a point to unify your sites.  Need assistance?  Contact your virtual assistant or me!
