Every business dreams of being known as the place where people come to do business. And with that dream comes the desire to be on top, to be known the world over for doing business in the best way possible. There is no secret formula for being an innovative thought leader in your particular field; however, there is one sure-fire method to become a thought leader on the cutting edge of business and technology. And that is to continuously keep abreast of the latest and greatest ideas in business and technology.
If you are on Facebook or follow the news on twitter every day, what impact will that have on your business? Every business owner is always on the lookout for new information and sharing that information with their social network. Are you someone who reads blogs, news on Facebook or follow the content on twitter? Or do you simply go online to read about business news? If you answered yes to both of these questions, then you are well on your way to establishing yourself as an expert in your industry.
You may not see it as an advantage, but there are actually many advantages to establishing yourself as an authority on anything related to business and technology. For example, if you want to expand your business, whether that means opening a new store or marketing your product through Facebook and Twitter, then you need to be the first to bring those ideas to your customers. So what can you do to be the first to bring business news and information to your social media followers and customers? Well, you could open a company blog and start posting regularly with your thoughts on current events, business news, technology, business tips and more.
A company blog is a great way for you to share your thoughts with your customers and establish yourself as an expert in your industry. One of the reasons why so many companies fail to grow is because they focus on their products or services and forget about attracting customers. The truth is that you need to sell yourself more than your company ever can. That’s why you want to have a general partner in a business who can promote your business for you on Facebook or Twitter. That’s why having a blog can benefit your business in many ways.
What’s even better is that blogging is one of the easiest ways for you to engage your customers on Facebook or Twitter. The reason that blogs work so well is because they are easy to update, which allows you to reach out to your customers constantly without having to constantly say updates like “on Facebook or follow the content on twitter.” This keeps people engaged and on your site. You want them to feel like they can touch what is going on at your business, which is how blogging can help you build relationships with your customers and potential customers alike.
Another great benefit of business news on Facebook and Twitter is that it allows you to get your name in front of thousands of people every single day! It’s not like if you have a business website or press release you can only target a certain geographic area or demographic. However, when you use social media to share business news, you are reaching out to those people in any location. In other words, even if you are in India, a business owner can share their business news with their countrymen in China. The same goes for a business news blog; it can be shared by business owners anywhere in the world. In fact, if a business owner has their own blog it’s even easier because they can include links to their website and articles from their business website or press releases.
If you want to share unique business stories or simply interact with your customers, using a company blog or Facebook or Twitter page is a great way to go. When you post on Facebook or Twitter a link is provided in the post and when a follower clicks on that link, the business owner will be added as a friend to that follower and can then communicate with them via a message or private message. They can then share that message with their entire network of friends. On a company blog the same thing happens except instead of posting a link to a blog post on Facebook or Twitter, the company blog host provides a link to their blog post. So if you want to share a great company story about customer service, a great marketing story about an awesome new product or how awesome the new management team at your company is a business owner can put that along with a link and whoever clicks on that link will be taken to that blog post.
Hopefully this short article has given you some ideas of how you can use social media websites such as Facebook and twitter to enhance your business. Social media and startups go hand in hand; by posting unique content and sharing your business news, you will be exposing your business to a whole new audience. Make sure not to spend all day sitting back hoping the world will come to your website and purchase your products and services, you need to get out there and promote your business, by either posting links to your content on twitter or Facebook or even putting your business news on your personal website so everyone can read it. If you are not on Facebook or twitter, start today, because you never know who will be reading it.
