Do not create accounts on the social networks your customers do not use. Communicate with your audience to find out which sites they use regularly. You can easily manage up to five social networking accounts but keep in mind that social media marketing can become time-consuming. It is best to limit yourself to the networks your customers use the most. Remember that new networks are created regularly. Stay up to date with new trends and integrate new networks into your campaign if your customers use these sites.
Do not neglect professional connections. Use your personal accounts or sign up for LinkedIn to stay in touch with other professionals. Connect with professionals in your field, distributors and even competitors. Maintain friendly relations with them. Share updates about your different projects, your results and the kind of products you would like to sell in the future. Connect with marketing experts so you can keep learning more about the latest trends.
Do not share content your subscribers will not be interested in. All your updates should be related to the items you sell or to the activities customers use your products for. Avoid sharing anything too personal or talking about topics your subscribers would not necessarily relate to. Choose your updates very carefully and do not hesitate to spend a few days without sharing anything on social networks if you do not have any valuable content.
Don’t expect to get results right away. Keep track of how many subscribers are registered and the number of sales generated thanks to your presence on social networks. Remember that promoting your new campaign or generating sales can take some time. Set some goals for your social media marketing campaign so you can keep progressing. Do not give up on this campaign if you do not get the results you wanted. Keep trying different strategies until you find something that works.
Do not forget to inform your customers about your new products or services. You should talk about it to the customers you meet and add links to your profiles on your homepage. You can also update the signature of your emails with some links to your different profiles. Offer incentives to get your customers interested in your new products.
Avoid these five mistakes and focus on strategies adapted to your audience and to your products. Track how many products you sell with each campaign to make sure you are using efficient strategies.
