Things Your Might Be Doing Wrong in Social Media:
#3 – You aren’t contributing: Please take note that the traditional ways of advertising (just putting out a marketing communication via print TV, direct mailer or radio and not engaging your audience) doesn’t work on social media. Here’s what works: Sharing helpful, interesting, or entertaining content that allows you to build a solid relationship with potential and existing customers. Another key piece of this puzzle is interaction. Are you asking for feedback, or answering questions via social media? If not, you’re missing the point and the benefits of leveraging social media for your business growth.
