And they can say great things about you…so get them talking!
A highlight of the Internet era is relationships forged through online communities. As a business owner you have the immense potential to leverage what customers are saying about you and market yourself better. Learn how to use social media online to be more profitable and enhance the value of your brand.
In a nutshell, social networks are media that users can easily participate in and actively contribute to. Consumer Generated Media (CGM) is the intersection between real and virtual worlds. Truly, with the fact that anyone with an Internet connection can share their message with the world, tells us the Web is flat – everyone can engage in open dialogue.
This is perhaps the biggest reason why social media has gained such importance. It involves people and it gives them power – the power to voice their opinions and the power of knowledge that comes from gaining insights and feedback. The distinct advantage that social media has over other forms of traditional media is its dynamic and flexible nature. Not only can it change with time and be edited as required by the author (or sometimes by a community of users), it can also be shared, archived and indexed by search engines.
Organisations that have yet to explore any form of social media in a proactive manner are nonetheless affected by it. Every communication tool has the potential to be an entry point into your customer’s mind. WSI consultants use a proprietary, tested methodology for Social Media Optimisation, whose project life-cycle provides deliverables in a phased delivery approach, resulting in measurable results and repeatable processes that maximize your investment.
