Why you need to use social media
Firstly, there’s a number of reasons you need to be on social media, and these can include. Leverage your network Say you’re a small business owner in Cornwall, Ontario with no substantial profile. It’s probably a good idea to get on Twitter and LinkedIn, to send out some warm and fuzzies to your current clients and customers. Let’s face it: social media is a two way street and your customers want to feel connected to you. Promote your products This one is fairly obvious. If you’re in business for yourself, it makes sense to promote your services to the market. No matter how small your business, you can’t expect to win if you don’t actively promote it to others.
Your social media strategy
You should have your own social media team on speed dial. Why? Because business owners do not always have the time to strategize or plan their SM strategy, build a digital brand presence, nurture followers or perform a business review on platforms like Twitter, Facebook, Instagram or YouTube. If you’re wondering how to build a social media strategy to your advantage and reach out to an audience, we’re here to help. This is the ultimate guide for business owners, every entrepreneur at any stage.

Your brand and social media
Mainly, all platforms have their own metrics. You are not what you have, but rather how you communicate what you have. And to make sure your communication and reach is robust, you need to think of social media as a tool rather than something that needs to be perfected. Check in with that growth. Regularly monitor your social account statistics to understand how your channels can better serve your goals. You can, for example, see how many followers you have, how long it’s been since you posted, who’s responding to you, how long people are engaging with your posts, how many comments and shares they have, how much traffic you’re getting from your posts, and more.
