Social Media isn’t just a tool for funny videos and memes. For a business, it can be an excellent way to increase your sales and customer base. But with so much competition out there —  how does one start?

Find The Best Way to Connect.

When it comes to social media platforms, you have options!  To leverage it for sales — you must first look at your client base. Who are your ideal customers? What are their ages, locations, and interests? Once you have an idea of the type of audience you are looking to reach, you’ll be able to pick the best platform to engage with them on. Though having a presence on all social is good — you want to distribute your focus to the platforms your customers are on.

Use it to Build Relationships.

Now that you know the platform you are looking to work off of, it’s time to put the time in. You want to create a brand image and voice while building solid customer relationships. Social media is often the first place customers will go to when they want to be heard. For a brand, this is the perfect way to learn who your customer base is, their wants, their needs, likes, and dislikes. Review their comments, complaints, and praises and be sure to engage! The more you listen, the more you will be able to create useful and valid conversations that will lead to stable relationships and return customers.

Create and Engage.

Now that you are hard at work building relationships it’s time to think outside the box to gain new customers. Beyond creating good content, you must also search, share, and interact. Look for content that reflects who your brand is and where you want to be.  Engage with users through comments and shares. Expanding your community beyond your brand, and putting your voice out there will increase your views, reach, and can even lead to increased sales.
