Social Media is one of the most useful and affordable tools to build any successful brand. Social media is not specific to a group or product and making wise use of it will prove advantageous to any brand. But your objective should not be to publish photos of your brand representatives at a random array of local events or donating to various charities. This kind of display will prove beneficial, but only if you keep everything tied to the objectives of your brand. Aim to educate your customers. Highlight all the good attributes they already see and emphasize the ones they do not see. But don’t be too aggressive. There is no need to post long rants about your brand or your competitors all over social media. Use simple Memes and creative videos to emphasize and reemphasize all that your brand represents. This will however require that you keep up to date with the latest trends.
Companies all around the world have participated in various challenges to get potential clients curious about their brand. But no one can predict which trend will be cluttering up your news feed three months from now. Social media is not about forcing your message into the lives of your customers. If you make use of this tool to your advantage, potential clients will be sharing your message all around the world without ever asking you for a dime. Social media allows you to waltz right into the homes of the very group of people you wish to target. But in order for you to reach them, you have to make them welcome you into their homes. You will only be able to achieve that if you present your brand in a way that excites or intrigues the masses. In short, keep up to date, keep it fun. and as you learned in and relevant.
Be warned however, there is a hidden danger in this strategy. Social media makes it very easy for your clients to ‘call you out’ on whatever issues they may have with your product or service. Be sure to carefully monitor the comments being posted and prepare yourself to have to do damage control at just about any time. Anything offensive that is posted on your account can reach the very ends of the earth in just a few seconds. And even if you eventually delete it, this harmful content will do permanent damage before you are even aware of the harm that was done. That is why I strongly discourage delegating the task of posting on and monitoring your social media accounts unless you have hired a proven, trusted professional to do so.
