What does social media incorporate?
Social media allows you to create, share and exchange information and ideas in virtual communities and networks.
Social media is a broad term as it covers a large range of internet tools and platforms. It can be hard to get to grips with what each platform offers, so we’ve provided a short summary of the key platforms your business should be familiar with:
Facebook – Facebook pages allow you to share posts, articles, images and videos with your followers, providing an easy way to get a conversation going with customers, improve loyalty, ask for feedback and build up a community.
Twitter – Twitter allows you to post 40 characters in a single tweet, and can be used to announce new products, share news in your industry or offer discounts.
LinkedIn – This is a social business network. Developing a strong reputation by joining LinkedIn groups aligned with your industry and answering questions in forums will be beneficial to your business.
Google Plus – This is a social network which can be categorised as a hybrid between Facebook and Twitter.
Pinterest – A digital bulletin board which is a highly visual way for people to share interesting online content.
There is also the opportunity for paid advertising on social media, and this can be an effective way of sharing your message with a highly targeted audience segmented by demographic information, geographic location, and interests.

Keeping abreast of this and responding socially will allow you to showcase your brand as caring and trustworthy which will be invaluable to your business.
