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!

Tips on Tuesday

In January we have been looking at the importance of organisation in respect of your social media and digital marketing programmes in our Tips on Tuesday segment.  In previous posts we have look at the need to organise your schedule, the importance of allocating roles effectively, an emphasis on reviewing your programme, and the crucial checking for notifications!

For our final tip in this series we’re going to remind you of the importance of knowing what other members of your team have posted!  There’s nothing more off-putting to your followers than having the same content posted repeatedly.  If you lose a follower you will have to work very hard to try to get them back!

Keep it unique, make it interesting and you can’t go far wrong!

Tips on Tuesday

January seems to be flying by at an alarming rate and we hope you’re putting into practice our advice from our new year series on Organisation.  The first parts of the series can be found HERE (where we talk about organising your schedule), HERE (where we discuss allocating roles effectively) and HERE (where we look at reviewing your processes).

For today’s tip we’re advising you to make sure you ALWAYS find time to check social media for notifications.

We advise spending a few minutes each day just checking to see whether you have any notifications on your social media channels.  This doesn’t need to be scheduled into your social media plan as it can be somewhat of a moveable feast, but its important that you regularly check and respond to those that need responding to. 

You don’t want to miss out on potential clients by missing them contacting you on your social media.

We’ll be back next week with the final of our January tips .

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.

Tips on Tuesday

For our final Tip on Tuesday of 2016 (yes, even we’re having a rest next week!) we’re giving you a generic tip.

Christmas TreeIt is ok to have a rest over the holidays!  Missing a couple of days of tweets or Facebook posts isn’t the end of the world.  In fact, looking after YOU and your employees and making sure they have a break is probably the best contribution towards marketing you can make.

When you’re rested and refreshed you will face the challenges of digital marketing and your online presence with renewed zeal. 

From Aire Media we wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a wonderful and productive 2017!

 

Tips on Tuesday

Today’s tip is a generic social media tip.

Social Media Definition

And our social media tip is……..have it!  Whilst you make not think you need a social media presence, it is too good a free market to remain untapped.

The average person has five social media accounts and spends a whopping 1 hour and 40 minutes browsing these accounts every day so if that person happens to stumble across your brand whilst they’re browsing……there’s a potential for free advertising right there!

 

Tips on Tuesday

For today’s tip we’re going to give an important piece of advice about Twitter.

TwitterTipsAireMedia

Make sure you make the most of Twitter by following people relevant to your sector.  From local organisations to industry leaders it is really important to forge relationships and find out what other people in your industry are saying!

Interact with the people you follow – you will find your own followers start to increase as you become more involved with other people in your industry.

 

Tips on Tuesday

For today’s Tip on Tuesday we are visiting LinkedIn.

In a previous Tip on Tuesday (which you can read here) we spoke about the important of your company profile on LinkedIn.

In addition, we really want to emphasise how important your personal profile is on LinkedIn, especially if you’re the face of the business.

Make sure your bio is snappy and informative, make sure all your contact information is up to date and that all your experience is reflected.

It is pointless having an amazing company profile if your personal profile lets you down.  You want to wow potential contacts and make them want to get in touch to use your services!

 

Tips on Tuesday

For today’s Tip on Tuesday we’re going to be looking at Facebook and how we can create business relationships on there.

Facebook Aire Media Blog

I think many people see Facebook as a more frivolous social media vehicle.  However, you can just as easily make business contacts. Find a page you want to make contact with and “Like” them, but make sure you Like them as your business page and NOT as your personal profile.

To do this, head to their profile page.  You will see the standard “Like” button, together with further buttons.

How to Like as Business Page

If you hover the cursor over the “More” tab, you will get a drop down menu, one of which is “Like as your page”.  Selecting this option will bring up a list of all pages you manage and you can select which page you want to Like as. 

Alternatively, from your business homepage, click the “See Pages Feed” section on the right hand side of your homepage which will bring up a “Like Other Pages” option.

The bad news is that you can only do this from a device via a browser and not using the Facebook/Facebook Pages app.

Tips on Tuesday

Today’s Tip on Tuesday is a generic social media tip and in response to a question I was asked at a networking event.

Question mark image

Very early in our Tips on Tuesday segment, we did a post on creating a brand.  I was asked how that would fit in with using profile pictures and avatars as an advertising spot for special offers, job opportunities etc.

 Make sure your logo also appears on your website and as a favicon.  You really cannot overuse that image which makes you visible. 

As long as it is instantly recognisable that the account is YOU, you can’t go far wrong with your use of imagery!
