Ways to Market and Manage Your Business Using Social Networking Sites

Almost everyone has a Facebook, Twitter, or Multiply account these days.
Social networking has affected the way people go about with their daily lives.
Most of the time, there is usually a window opened dedicated to a social networking site, no matter if the person is working or just browsing through the net.
However, did you know that it is possible to market your business using these social networking sites? It is a cheap advertising and marketing strategy, and adds the benefit of more people getting to know your business.
Furthermore, it provides a new way for your customers to interact with you.
So how do you start? First, you need to make a social networking account for your business.
Instead of using your personal account, create a new one specifically for your business.
You can add all the important information about your business, such as your products and services, address and telephone number, on the account's profile or information section.
Most likely, you already have a social networking account.
You can ask your online social network to "add", "follow" or "like" your business's social networking page and to ask their online social network to do the same.
Keep the page updated.
If you can, place photos of your products and services on the account so that people can see them.
Some businesses would even turn their photo albums as catalogs where they place an item number on each of the photos and their customers can just comment on the photo or send a private message to the account's owner to purchase the item.
If you have something new with your products and services, you can inform your clients by tweeting it or changing your Facebook status.
Take advantage of the functions of "tagging".
Tagging people on photos of your products will make them show up on their news feed or notification.
You might attract prospective clients this way.
if you provide shipping and online shopping services, you need to have a system to follow so that transactions run smoothly.
Post "Rules" on your profile that your customers need to follow when ordering.
Keep in touch with the people who post comments and suggestions on your wall.
Some people might ask if you can ship your items to different locations, inquire about what's new, commenting about the customer service that they received while at your physical store, things like these.
