Social Media is the Key to Customer Trust
You might be of the mindset that I was only about a week ago in that you have no idea where to start when it comes to Social Media marketing. Well, I’m of the mindset that if you follow the lead of the successful people, you too will become successful.
When I started building up my social media markets I knew that i needed to create accounts and business pages on the largest social networks around, Twitter, Facebook, Google+ and Linked In. When I started I had no idea just how I could get people to like my page, follow me, or jump for joy for simply being around. Heh! Well, it’s not really about who you know when it comes to upping the numbers to impress customers. It’s all about HOW you gain those numbers.
Lots of companies want the same attention you do. In fact, I don’t know of a single company who wouldn’t like to gain over 100 followers in a day like I did. So, what do the major players do to attract so much attention? Is it really just that people like them so much? Well, maybe, but you’re the little guy just starting out and you want to help your company grow. You want to be recognized in the market before your launch date so that you can actually make sales.
Customers think that the more likes and follows you have, the more people must be using your services or must be interested in your launch. Peer pressure sets in and people start to trust you, especially if you have a big honkin’ flag (social widget) on your home page that says you have hundreds or thousands of followers and likes on your company’s social properties.
Your business needs this push to make sure that new customers see you are a large, trustworthy business right when you open. If you have a smart phone, be sure to install the apps for all of the major social media players. (Facebook, Twitter, Linked In, and Google+)
