Social media is not advertising

Wednesday, July 11th, 2012

Since its introduction social media has become too important to ignore, and as a result the relationship between company and customer has changed significantly. Social media provides a virtual business meeting venue, where it is difficult to control the outcome and customers are able to see through superficial statements and indiscriminate ‘likes’. Social media can make a big impact upon your business, so here are a few tips to help you avoid making some fundamental mistakes:

  • Social media race is not a sprint, it is a marathon. As a business owner, you should aim to create a long-term relationship with your customer.
  • Understand that social media is not about advertising your product, but engaging with customers through public relations. It is vital that you listen to your customers and post regular information that is relevant to their interests. By integrating your message in a social context and offering a personally appealing service, you will attract more connections for your business.
  • Methods of broadcasting information are constantly changing, what is hip and trendy now, may not be tomorrow.

So get your message out there, but don’t be tempted to use social media as yet another channel merely to advertise. Redline Company has considerable experience in helping companies to harness the potential of social media sites. To find out more contact us on: info@redlinecompany.com or 952 816 678.

Turn Social Media into Business Media

Wednesday, May 9th, 2012

Don´t be deceived by the term “social media” – it is now used for business equally as much as pleasure. And while posting a Facebook update from time to time might be fun and easy to do, a continuous, optimised social media presence requires careful research of your target market, knowledge of the newest social media technologies and trends, not to mention the skill to produce engaging content.

In fact, many business owners contact us when the initial excitement of having a social media account has faded and they have run out of time and ideas for posting interesting content. This is a critical time as we know that once you have lost the attention of your audience, it is much harder to regain it than it is to attract it in the first place.

At the moment, the leading social media used by businesses are Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and blogs – but this landscape is evolving quickly, and new platforms keep mushrooming, attempting to dethrone the giants.

Contrary to what many people think, the use of these media for business is more complicated than simply posting sales materials. Social media experts agree that the most successful businesses use these platforms to create lasting, two-way relationships with their clients. Word of mouth is key here, and customer-to-customer recommendations seem to translate to ROI much better than top-down, propaganda-style advertising.

Apart from enhancing your relationship with the clients, social media is an important tool in search engine marketing. By including links, tags and keywords in social media content, we can make your website appear in search results related to your business.

At Redline Company we follow all the latest trends and developments in social media. We can research, plan and create your social media campaign from scratch or take over your existing channels, making sure you keep posting valuable content which conveys your corporate philosophy and turns your customers into spokespeople for your brand.
