Post/Tweet With a Purpose

Posting, Sharing,Tweeting just to do will not really benefit a business. A business owner needs to limit posts and tweets to just one or so per hour. Anyone is not necessary unless an event is being promoted. Another aspect any business owner will need to realize is comments can be made on other pages. Make sure to comment more and not simply re-tweet. Re-tweets do not engage your target audience for any type of conversation.

Automated Posts

The use of apps to make automated posts is a great option for business owners who are too busy to do any type of personal engagement on social media. One thing to keep in mind is taking time to develop unique posts that will need to be sent throughout the day. Customers will appreciate a response when it is sent at a later time. Many times just getting a response will surprise potential customers.

Monitor Comments

Comments that are made by a target audience on your social media pages need to be monitored. Any post that is on Facebook or a comment on Twitter can easily be monitored using various apps that can be added to your smartphone or tablet. One important thing to keep in mind is to pick and choose specific posts for a reply. This includes anyone with a problem or perhaps an inquiry about a product or service.
