Tips on Tuesday

Social media feedback is instant; so don’t be afraid to use it!

Feedback

If you get a positive review on Facebook, or someone tweets about your company, don’t be afraid to share that out and draw people’s attention to it.

Good news is brilliant; blowing your own trumpet through genuine examples of customer satisfaction is a great way to show people how good you are at what you do!

The Beauty Corner

We were really delighted when Helena from The Beauty Corner contacted us for some help with their online presence.

The Beauty Corner is a gorgeous salon, set in picturesque Eldwick.  Whilst Helena is busy doing what she does best; treating her clients to a wide array of beauty treatments, she doesn’t have time to share what she does on social media.

And that’s where we come in!

With such a visual business we’re really excited to be working with Helena and helping her showcase online the wonderful treatments she offers, whilst increasing awareness of the brand in the local area.

To find out more about Helena, please visit The Beauty Corner or follow on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram!

Having met Rachel on an online networking group, specifically aimed towards women in business, we had several discussions over the assistance Rachel needed and we were delighted that Aire Media seemed a really great fit at providing the all important exposure needed for three of her projects.  Certainly these three projects have so much visual worth that having a strong and visible online presence is vital.

We formulated a plan with Rachel involving regular posts on social media, streamlining and managing a number of her websites and generally helping her to have an online presence, freeing up some of Rachel’s valuable time for her other endeavours.

We’re delighted to have forged a partnership with such an inspirational business woman!

Tips on Tuesday

Back with a slightly more sensible Tip on Tuesday than “don’t break your foot” but one that can be applied to all your social media channels.

Every message you send out is marketing.  You might not think it, especially if you’re not directly advertising a service, but each time you make a comment on any of your social media channels you are representing your business and therefore marketing it.  With that in mind make sure your messages are well presented and structured and make a valuable contribution. 

Remember though, contribution isn’t necessarily directly about your business, simply a valid and relevant or even personally interesting comment.

 

Avenue Boutique Hair & Beauty Salon

Avene Boutique LogoCaroline, the owner of Avenue Boutique contacted us because the Avenue Boutique team were simply too busy to fit social media into their full-on schedules.  With appointments being booked months in advance, it really wasn’t hard to see how their time simply slipped away.

As a hair and beauty salon, the very visual craft was simply too good not to be shared on social media and that is where Aire Media come in.

We formulated a plan with Caroline and her team involving regular segments on social media, streamlining and managing the website and generally helping them to have an online presence whilst they create the magic in the salon.

We’re delighted to have forged a partnership with such a lovely local business!

Tips on Tuesday

Today’s tip is something that can be applied to all your social media channels.

Scheduling tools can be a very valuable resource when you’re managing a number of social media accounts and mean that you can ensure you have a presence even when it is impossible for you to be online.

However, it is vital to ensure that you also maintain a live online presence – don’t rely on scheduling tools to do it all for you.  Ensure you regularly login to all your social media accounts to deal with queries, to make use of industry specific current affairs and to make it appear that your account has a personality.  It is really easy to tell which social media accounts are done solely via scheduling.

 

Tips on Tuesday

For today’s Tip on Tuesday we’re going to visit Twitter and give you a tip that could be the difference between getting a new customer and losing them.

TwitterTipsAireMediaThere’s no easy way to say this but on Twitter you have a three-second check out time.  That means three seconds before someone will click away from your profile.  It is therefore essential that you have your profile completely filled in.

Make sure your company logo is your avatar and you have a header image of the right size.   Ensure your bio is filled in with a succinct, yet informative few lines about your company and what you do.  If it is pertinent to your business, remember to put a location – although we see no harm in inputting this whether you’re location-based or not.  Finally, and most importantly ensure your website is there – that means all potential customers have to do is click.  If you make it easy for people to find you, they will!

Tips on Tuesday

There wasn’t really anything else we could talk about today on Tips on Tuesday – a generic tip to help you out on all your social media channels.

Heart picture

So today’s tip is, if you like what someone is doing on social media TELL them.  Everyone likes to know they’re impressing someone, so whether it is another business, or an individual pop a comment on.  It is a great way of making links and you can be sure that if you say to someone “hey, we love what you’re doing here”, they will look at your profile and take the time to reciprocate.

Happy social media love in all!

As you know for Tips on Tuesday throughout January we’re working on an organisation theme, the first two tips can be found HERE and HERE.

Continuing with the theme to help you aim for an efficient and effective 2017, our tip today is review.  Whilst it is so important to actually have a social media presence, it is equally important to know that you’re doing it right.  A poor executed social media account can be as off-putting to potential customers as not having one at all.

Schedule regular reviews throughout the year to look into what you’re doing, find out which posts performed best and play with your upcoming posts to do more of the same.  If you find a post that didn’t work well, try to determine why so you can avoid making the same mistake!

Keep your content crisp and effective to be noticed.

Tips on Tuesday

We’re here to share the second tip in our January series on getting yourself ready for an efficient year on social media.

Make sure you allocate roles effectively.  Use the talents of your staff and make sure they’re aware you want them to do regular social media updates.  Make sure it is a visible part of their job description and not something you assume they will be doing.

Have regular meetings with them and find out what works and what doesn’t!  There’s no point being on social media if you’re not using it effectively.  Remember, social media is a free resource so having competent people using it is a great way of ogranically growing your online presence.
