you must be much more

Social Media Marketing is much more than simply being active in social networks.

Social Media Marketing is not only about what others do for you in Social Media. Once you get others to talk about you, you have half-way won. You need to make it easy for them and provide something they can talk about.

  • Provide interesting content – people share content
  • Make the content easy to share
  • Provide messaging and social accounts

Without content your social media marketing is doomed to fail.

Do you have enough content to share on Social Media to keep visible? If you do not provide anything worth following you for, how can you expect people to follow you?

If your content is not shared, how can you expect to grow?

building real engagement

Is “the human factor” neglected in Social Media?

There are humans on the other side of the computer.

  • Customers
  • Prospects
  • Colleagues

Too much automation? Think about real engagement. Think on this:

We talk about:

  • the news
  • weekend activities
  • how our children are doing

thedifference

You get the picture.

Even if we don’t reach the personal level, we discuss work in a much more casual way so that productivity does not suffer. This makes the work discussion more enjoyable.

On Social Media, we want to connect. We want to develop relationships by discussing topics in a casual way. This is the first step to building real engagement. Friendliness and warmth are essential for developing relationships and creativity confidence.
