How to use social networks for businesses

Social networks have become an indispensable element for any company. Nowadays, if a company doesn’t know how to manage the main social networks (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn ...) they will be missing a large number of opportunities, contacts, dissemination, and sales.

In the 21st century, most companies have been able to adapt to technological changes and open their business to the online world. But, it’s of little use to have your business on the Internet if you don't know how to take your customers there. Social networks are the perfect tool to get traffic to your website, make your brand known and even a new way of advertising.

Therefore, it ’s very important that your business is in the social networks but don't rush and register your company in all as it may be something unproductive. It’s important that before creating profiles in all social platforms you do a previous study.

First of all you have to do a study of the networks and investigate where your potential customers and your competitors are. Having direct competitors can be advantageous when doing this analysis because they will save you work. Everything you need to know about the audience you can understand what you need by looking at their followers and what kind of content works best through their likes. It’s preferable to open a profile in only two social networks and be very active with quality content for your followers and potential customers than to have profiles in all social networks in the world and not make a good management of them.

You can make a SWOT analysis to know the weaknesses, threats, strengths, and opportunities of your company and based on the results create a specific digital marketing plan. The content you offer to your followers will depend on what your brand is dedicated to. You should also keep in mind the tone in which you are addressing yourself; more informal to be closer or more formal for a more professional contact such as through LinkedIn.
