Social Media

social media for local businessSocial media marketing is a great way to attract and retain local customers. It enables you to listen to people, connect with them and then build a strong following of loyal customers who will spread the word for you through word of mouth. Most people have heard of Facebook, Twitter, Google+, LinkedIn and YouTube, but there are plenty of other social networks that you can also use, including FourSquare, Flickr, Instagram and more. You don’t have to be on all the social networking sites but you do need to make sure you’re using the right ones for your business.

Social Media Strategy

Using social media for local business is different to using it as an individual to keep in touch with friends and family. Your social media message should reflect who you are as a company and help to convey what your brand is all about. Having a successful social media strategy will help to personalise your business so that potential customers can get to know you. We help to identify the social media sites that best fit your business and then develop a plan with you to get the most out of them.

Social Media Profiles Set Up

Creating your social media profiles is an important first step, optimising them is an important second step. We help you decide whether to have a photograph or a logo as your profile image. We’ll make sure your profiles are completed so that people immediately know who you are and how they can find you. Integrating your social profiles with your website and other online properties is also something we do for you.
